A Chat with Tommy Hilfiger
The awesome eBay auction continues with designer duffle bags curated by CFDA’s top designers and Details Magazine. We’ve spoken to a few incredible designers this week about their creations. Today’s chat is with the king of lifestyle brands, Tommy Hilfiger, who took the time to share his own inspirations on travel and leisure.
Jauretsi: Describe the inspiration for your duffle bag design.
Tommy Hilfiger: The bag is inspired by collegiate sporting clubs: rowing, sailing, cricket. The leather straps and detailing in our signature spirited blues and athletic reds combined with gold hardware make the bag sporty yet sophisticated.
J: Name three of your travel essentials.
TH: There are classic pieces I take with me every time I travel: 1) A tailored navy blazer, 2) Chinos, and 3) Button-down shirts to mix-and-match. Versatile… quality pieces are the key to dressing well while traveling.
J: What’s your next big escape?
TH: Our home on Mustique, a quiet island in the West Indies, is my favorite place to unwind with my family. It’s where we like to spend most of the summer.
