Is he one of the worlds most famous designers? Is his brand one of the world’s leading designer lifestyle brands? And did he open his first store in 1970 with 2 friends with his life savings of $150 (£106 in todays money but in 1970 was worth £1455!)?
Yes, you’re right! Internationally recognised for celebrating the essence of classical American cool style, featuring preppy with a twist designs; is a brand we stock in the shop and online, Tommy Hilfiger!
Tommy Hilfiger delivers premium styling, quality and value to customers worldwide, in over 10 countries and he has more than 1800 retail stores throughout North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia.
They offer mens and women clothing, as well as kids clothing, sportswear, accessories and footwear! But it doesn’t stop there they are also licensed to sell a range of products from fragrance, to eyewear, watches and even home furnishings.
Now, here’s the interesting bit. We love how Tommy Hilfiger includes this modern mission statement wherever they are, it's fresh and unique and just what we're looking for, after all if we didn’t look after out planet then there would be no need for clothes or shoes!
‘We believe that the future success of our business is dependent on bringing sustainable practices into all elements of our operations. Our mission is to be one of the leading sustainable designer lifestyle brands through how we create our products, manage our operations and connect with our community.’
We love how they love the planet and we do too! Remember if you shop in-store all of your products will come in a Hotspur1364 branded paper bag which can be easily recycled at home or at your local recycling point, or why not bring it back and full it up with clothes at the shop!
They also live and design by these 3 principles:
‘Class, Cool and Committed’
They aim to evaluate all areas of their supply chain, from cotton fields to manufacturing facilities, to identify areas where they can reduce the environmental and social impacts of their production processes.
‘Lean and Clean’
The company are guided by a vision to drive innovation through their sustainability practices, in order to increase operational efficiency while reducing their environmental impact!
‘Positive and Inclusive’
They are embracing their inclusive brand spirit in all areas of global business, while supporting the growth of healthy communities, empowering people, embracing diversity and adhering to human rights standards!
How cool are they? Not only looking after themselves but a whole load of others out there too, who would have thought that a huge brand like Tommy Hilfiger would have such close to heart principles, eh? Remember we have loads of Tommy Hilfiger clothing in our shop or check us out online (you're already on the website!) and get yourself a little treat for the summer!
That's all until our next blog post!
