The fashion world is changing. And for the better. Tommy Hilfiger is now joining other brands, like Target’s Cat & Jack, and launched an adaptive fashion line called Tommy Adaptive. If you don’t know what that means, it’s a line of clothing for adults with disabilities. The collection follows Hilfiger’s line of clothes for kids with disabilities, which was released in 2016 in collaboration with Runway of Dreams.
Hilfiger’s adult collection includes 37 men’s and 34 women’s styles based on pieces from Tommy Hilfiger’s sportswear collection. Like their children’s line, the items use adjusted seams, magnetic closures for shirts, Velcro and magnetic flies for pants, and wide leg/arm openings and hems to fit braces and orthotics.
In a statement, the brand said that it’s about time to support inclusive fashion:
“Inclusivity and the democratization of fashion have always been at the core of my brand’s DNA. These collections continue to build on that vision, empowering differently abled adults to express themselves through fashion.”
The clothes are relatively affordable (and priced in line with the brand in general) — ranging from $29.50 for a t-shirt to $119.50 for a dress. You can browse the entire collection here.
Here’s hoping this fashion trend that more brands get onboard with!
