Hip-hop dominates global culture these days, but it wasn’t always that way. In the ’90s, hip-hop hadn’t yet reached its pinnacle of influence, with that decade’s rappers, producers, and stylists grinding to lay the groundwork for today’s cultural domination. During that time, two brands were hip-hop’s constant companions: Tommy Hilfiger and Timberland. And now that hip-hop has taken over the world, it’s only right that Tommy and Timberland link to drop a collection honoring both labels’ rich cultural impacts.
Celebrating the heritage of these two huge brands that helped shape the ’90s is a big deal, so much that even the man himself, Mr. Tommy Hilfiger, is excited about it. “This partnership with Timberland has been such a creative adventure for me and a long time coming,” Hilfiger says. “Diving into our archives and reliving that optimistic, ‘anything is possible’ energy of the ’90s along with Timberland was a great and nostalgic experience. Culture shaped our brands, and in turn we shaped the fashion landscape of the time. We’ve truly brought back the icons of our past for a capsule that’s remixed for today.”
Christopher Raeburn, the Global Creative Director at Timberland agrees. “The power of collaboration is bringing the best each brand has to offer, then pushing boundaries to create something radically different, together,” he explains. “The pieces we created in this first drop are instantly recognizable as Timberland and Tommy.
The first drop from the new TommyXTimberland collection is a 17-piece hybrid capsule featuring selected hero pieces from the archives, including a Recycled Reversible Varsity Jacket, Organic Cotton Zip-Off Pants, and, of course, TommyXTimberland Boots decked out with Hilfiger’s beloved red, white, and blue emblem. It will be available online at tommy.com, timberland.com, and select Tommy Hilfiger and Timberland® stores worldwide beginning October 26, 2021.
But that’s not all. A second TommyXTimberland drop will release in November. Below, check out some of our favorite items from drop one, then hit the Tommy Hilfiger and Timberland websites to cop. Your hip-hop forebearers will be glad you did.
