It’s an addition to the brand’s adaptive children’s collection
Tommy Hilfiger, known for classic American sportswear and that iconic red-white-and-blue signature logo, is entering territory few big-name designers have: clothing created specifically for differently abled adults in the form of a new collection called Tommy Adaptive.
“Following the success of their first adaptive line for children back in spring 2016, the iconically all-American fashion brand has just announced its launch of a sportswear line thoughtfully designed with the end consumer in mind and based off of pieces from the Tommy Hilfiger collections,” InStyle reports.
What makes a line specifically for adults with disabilities? It’s mostly in the seams. Adjusted seams and openings, such as magnetic and Velcro closures, as well as adjusted leg openings to accommodate leg braces and orthotics, are features of the collection. 34 women’s styles and 37 men’s styles are currently available for purchase on tommy.com.
In a press release, Tommy Hilfiger spoke to the importance of fashion for everyone. “Inclusivity and democratization of fashion have always been at the core of my brand’s DNA,” said Hilfiger. “These collections continue to build on that vision, empowering the differently abled community. It developed the adult lines following the incredible response to the children’s collection.”
