Martine Rose gets its bum out for Tommy Hilfiger, and more news you missed
Rick Owens lands on Moncler, while Harry Styles lands on Gucci
Blame it on all the Tom of Finland collaborations, the concept of luxury poppers, or the Charli XCX-branded douche, but fashion has become in thrall to the jockstrap over recent seasons. Having just announced her guest appearance at the next Pitti Uomo, Martine Rose is the latest designer to expose a man’s arse like a big old baboon. In a new 35-piece collaborative capsule with Tommy Hilfiger, the designer (who may or not be taking over a big Parisian fashion house) has debuted jockstraps, boxer briefs as shorts, and chinos-turned-chaps – twisting the label’s 90s archive to overblown, subversive proportions. “I really enjoyed being able to explore American subculture and create a campaign that not only celebrates, but rightly spotlights marginalised communities,” Rose said. “Tommy Hilfiger has always been a brand that I’ve drawn inspiration from, so this partnership was such a natural and organic marriage.” The offering is available now, online and in Tommy Jeans stores.
