The look is bold yet relaxed, with a playful fashion edge inspired by Gigi’s own effortless twist on athleisure style. Timeless classics, including oversized outerwear, tailored jeans, sporty activewear, and feminine dresses are reimagined in edgy leather, luxe silks and distressed denim.
Athletic colour-blocking in red, white and blue is enhanced with a signature Gigi racing stripe print, graphic badges and embroidered speed logos. Gold zipper details and contrasting stitching and piping add a luxurious finishing touch. The silhouette is mix-and-match with oversized pieces combining with super-skinny designs for a strong and confident new take on race-track style.
The Spring 2018 TommyXGigi capsule collection will premiere at the TOMMYNOW experiential runway event, which will close Milan Fashion Week on February 25th. All runway looks will be available across an ecosystem of immediately shoppable channels in more than 70 countries.

Q&A: GIGI HADID
What inspired you for the fourth TommyXGigi capsule collaboration?
Spring 2018 celebrates speed and racing. We’ve combined Tommy’s love of motor sports with my personal twist on athleisure style. The strong, confident and modern “Tommy Girl” inspired us throughout the design process.
What are your favorite pieces in the collection?
I personally love the way the windbreaker jackets turned out. I’m happy with the shapes and their ability to be worn as a fashion statement that is functional.
What is the co-design process when collaborating with Tommy Hilfiger?
Tommy has been an amazing design mentor and we’ve had a lot of fun creating all our capsules. I’ve learned so much about the importance of executing a design correctly for what I want from each look, and finding inspiration in everything around me.

What is your most memorable moment over the last four collections?
Showcasing our TommyXGigi capsules at the TOMMYNOW runway events in different cities around the world has been amazing and extremely surreal. The level of production really blew me away. I also got to present each collection with fans all over the world during the #TogetherTour; and their incredible support really touched me. I am humbled by their love.
Tommy Hilfiger loves motorsports and the theme of the collection is “speed”: what are your favorite sports?
When I was younger, I was a really competitive horseback rider and volleyball player. Now, I love to box, which requires a lot of speed, agility and power. I always feel energized after a boxing session.
What fascinates you about racing and why?
The technical aspect, the different ways they modify the cars to race differently, what the driver speaks to his team about while driving 200 mph. Everything is intriguing.
Do you remember your first driving lesson?
Yes, my driving teacher would pick me up from school in a really embarrassing lime green “student driver” car.
