Tommy Hilfiger’s creative guru spills the goods on the brand’s latest collaborative effort with Cerruti

Made in collaboration with the renowned Italian wool mill Cerruti, the new limited-edition navy blazer by Tommy Hilfiger offers a transatlantic take on the wardrobe staple.  “We were on a quest for the ideal classic blazer with a modern fit,” says Trent Wisehart, Tommy Hilfiger’s creative director for North America and executive vice president of global creative services. “Cerruti was excellent and provided what we needed: a premium fabric and a brand that spoke to the heritage we were trying to capture.” Traditional details like gold buttons and an oxford lining complement the timeless tone, while maintaining a certain irreverence. As Wisehart suggests, the blazer’s “great with an oxford shirt and rip-and-repair jeans or a vintage collegiate tee and a great pair of slim chinos.” And the best news? Cerruti won’t be the last of Tommy’s notable collaborators. “It’s always great to work with other brands,” says Wisehart, “and to make quintessential pieces for the Tommy Hilfiger man, who’s classic, cool, and confident.” Limited-edition navy blazer by Tommy Hilfiger and Cerruti, $395, Tommy.com.
