With New York Fashion Week set for next month, aficionados shouldn't expect shows from Ralph Lauren or Tommy Hilfiger.
As Women's Wear Daily pointed out in a Wednesday report on the NYFW schedule, the two brands are not on the agenda, with Lauren's plans still unknown and Hilfiger set for a London Fashion Week experience at the Tanks at Tate Modern. Tom Ford is also eschewing NYFW, choosing instead to stage a show in Los Angeles during Oscars week.
Among those confirmed for NYFW shows next month are Marc Jacobs, Christian Siriano, Veronica Beard, Tory Burch, Michael Kors, Prabal Gurung, Nicole Miller, Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, Cynthia Rowley, and Jason Wu. The report also notes that The Shed at Hudson Yards will not, despite previous whisperings, be dubbed the new site of NYFW shows this go-around.
Hilfiger's TommyNow show during London Fashion Week will include pieces from the Tommy x Lewis collection, a collab with World Champion Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton.
"I wanted to learn as much as I could from the team that I’m working with, and I've spent a lot of time looking into what I like to wear and also looking at Tommy’s DNA and learning how we can fuse those things together," Lewis told Esquire of the link-up back in September.
