Why Gigi Hadid is inspiring Tommy Hilfiger’s collections

Gigi Hadid was spotted early this year at the London Fashion Week, promoting the TOMMY X GIGI Spring ’17 collection. It was the second time that the supermodel was promoting the eclectic American fashion designer’s clothes, which has her creative inputs as well.

So, how did the two iconic personalities collaborate?

It was in January 2016 that Tommy Hilfiger announced Gigi Hadid’s name as the brand ambassador for his Women’s Wear for the Fall Collection of 2016, as part of the brand’s plan to build on a new vision and plan a strategic expansion of its global Women’s business.

Gigi, too, was thrilled with the association. “I never thought I would be asked to design a capsule collection, so it still feels like a dream that Tommy approached me to collaborate,” she said. “His company is one that I genuinely love and have been a fan of for my entire life… I have always looked up to his brand, campaigns and design style.”

On the TOMMY X GIGI collection, she says, “Our collection celebrates the iconic Tommy lifestyle and mixes a bit of everything. There are styles that are really hippie-chic, styles that are sporty streetwear, and styles that are tomboy but girly. Everyone’s going to love a different part of it.”

The first collection featured women’s sportswear, footwear and accessories, including watches and sunglasses, as well as a new fragrance, reflective of Hadid’s unique take on modern style, fused with Hilfiger’s signature “classic American cool” heritage.

Tommy himself had this to say about his business association with Gigi: “She is truly the definition of today’s ‘Tommy Girl’ – her magnetic personality is bright and always optimistic, her style confident, effortless and cool.”

Gigi Hadid, who has appeared on the covers of Vogue, W, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, TeenVogue, Numéro, Schön!, and CR Fashion Book, amongst others, joins a list of influential women who have partnered with the Tommy Hilfiger brand. These included Beyoncé, Kate Hudson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Naomi Campbell, Naomi Watts and Alexa Chung.

TOMMY X GIGI collection

At the time, Myntra fans were thrilled to discover that they could get their hands on the TOMMY X GIGI Collection on Myntra as soon as it was unveiled on the ramp in LA! What’s more, one can still get the unique TOMMY X GIGI style on Myntra.

What sets Gigi apart from other models on the runway of the past decade is her non-size zero shape. That, combined with the comfortable looks has won her a huge following. Her managers have not failed to notice how to capitalize on her 34.3 million followers on Instagram, since today’s world is ruled by the social media. So, what happened next was Gigi’s transformation from a supermodel to one that ruled the social media too. It was a win-win situation for all the brands she endorsed as she could easily promote them on those channels.

Hilfiger recalls, “When she hit the runway, the fans went crazy, they wanted to buy everything she was wearing, and we talked at length about how we could use Gigi as more than a model. I think a designer has never partnered with a model before and allowed the model to have a serious hand in designing the collection.” Yes, indeed, it was a first and disruptive, at that.

The TOMMY X GIGI capsule collection got sold at tremendous speed, online as well as offline. That success was replicated in a second collection, which boasted denims, bomber jackets, dresses, skirts, crop-tops and T-shirts.

Being Beautiful Is All About Being Bold

Bold advertisements are coming out every other day. They reflect the changing times we live in and also pay a tribute to the bold women of today, who are charting their own courses in every aspect of their lives. These women, in turn, inspire other women to take courageous steps and stand up for themselves.

It all started with the path-breaking ads for Anouk, Myntra’s fashionably ethnic brand. The ads were about a single mother trying to protect her privacy after moving to a new neighbourhood, a lady by herself in a bar trying to ignore the attentions of a stranger, a lesbian couple getting ready to “meeting the parents”, and a pregnant employee breaking free of prejudices at work.

Myntra’s campaign for Anouk was called ‘Bold is Beautiful’ while the individual ads had names like, ‘The Whispers’, ‘The Visit’ and ‘The Wait’. The campaign had a message for women of all ages.

The ads also grabbed the eyeballs of the social media, definitely a space to cater to today. It started many conversations and changed many mindsets, for sure.

The concept for the ads on homosexuality, single-parenting and the joy of staying single were created by by Ogilvy & Mather and produced by Hectic Content.

On the campaign, Manish Aggarwal, Vice President, Marketing, Myntra Fashion Brands, has this to say: “The brand is all about celebrating women, their beauty, their existence, their grace and their freedom. We wanted to give Anouk a sharp, defined identity, in a crowded category, by describing it as an ethnic wear that is bold, vibrant and stylish – even edgy – at times.”

The ads are edgy, because opinions and mindsets are no longer about something being right and something being wrong. There are no more clichés about women empowerment which anyway make little sense. Now, it’s about real freedom to make real choices in life despite societal pressure. The ads persuade people to come out of hiding and live their life as they deem fit.

Clearly, fashion brands have come of age. They are trying to form a deep connection with their customers, and it’s no longer about simply offering them clothes to wear but creating brands that define their inclinations and attitudes as well. The ads were aimed at intelligent and independent women.

In the footsteps of the Anouk ads has come the Benetton commercial, with its #UnitedByHalf series of ads. The ads gave a witty twist to the “for better or for worse” vow taken at weddings, with women striving for equal pay as well as true equality in all other aspects of life as well.

Zivame’s #FitForAll ad was an ode to women of different sizes, thereby completely demolishing the existing myth of the size-zero shape.

More recently, on the occasion of Valentine’s Day 2017, the leading online fashion portal allowed couples, including a gay couple, to expressing their love for each other. That was really a bold and path-breaking move. Myntra’s message was clear: its clothes are for the contemporary modern, bold and beautiful woman or man.

Fashion Has Always Been All About You

India is turning fashionable, and what’s more, it is starting young. Unlike previous generations when only a select few included fashion in their daily choices, today’s world is one where almost every person is into fashion. Today’s fashion is not just about wearing trendy clothes but also the knowledge to accessorize and blend fashion with one’s own taste, all at the same time.

A leading fashion portal like Myntra cannot but be elated at this change. Anant Narayanan, CEO, Myntra & Jabong, in an interview with CNBC, said that fashion and lifestyle are undergoing a major transformation in recent times.

In fact, he went so far as to describe fashion as having emerged as a culture. The reasons for this, elaborated Ananth, was fashion becoming one of the best forms of self-expression; the modern Indian woman becoming aware about what she wants to do; and existing biases getting better. Making Myntra a daily habit for women was a task they had undertaken, shared Ananth.

All About You

What better example than Deepika Padukone’s All About You when it comes to a clothes brand created to give the wearer the freedom to actually wear what one wants, be it in the material that best suits the Indian weather, or having the choice of wearing western as well as Indian (which not many brands offer) and also being one of the most affordable brands in fashion, costing just between Rs 800-Rs 4000.

As Deepika Padukone shared in the same interview, when she initially thought of launching her own clothesline, it was to give expression to the girl inside. But her passion soon evolved into the idea of empowering girls and women, from age 15 to age 40, by giving them the right to find their preferred fashion within this brand.

Deepika said that fashion was an extension of a person’s personality and it truly came into fruition when one had the liberty to wear what they wanted to at home, work or any social setting without any peer pressure. Talking of her Spring-Summer collection launched recently, she said it had softer and lighter fabrics, lace, florals and pastels, with comfort being the key word. Deepika also emphasized that knowledge and acceptance of one’s own uniqueness is key and it is upto each one of us to mould it into our strength. Only then can a person drive out the irrelevant and embrace themselves.

All About You has also proved to be one of the top five women’s wear brands on Myntra, and among the top ten on Jabong, according to Ananth. The unique partnership of Deepika and Ananth, one an actor and the other a businessman, can be credited with the success that All About You has seen in the online retail space. By making the brand a lot more accessible to a larger audience, by endorsing simplicity as well as pizzazz, All About You has reduced the isolation that a lot of brands create by catering to specific trends and audiences. As Deepika has stated, it is all about exploring and embracing your true self which would in turn reflect in one’s style and clothing, the idea on which All About You is based on. As a matter of fact, Deepika based the idea of the brand based on her own mother’s elegant and relatable fashion which inspired her.

All About You has seen good growth in recent years. With a Year on Year growth of 150%, it’s no surprise that the brand is so hugely successful and will continue scaling higher in the foreseeable future.

To take the technology boom employed at Roadster one step further, a ’Highway 360’ feature, powered by virtual reality, will allow a person to visit idyllic locations and have incredible experiences, all through a virtual road trip. If this wasn’t enough, the customers will also get to pick tokens from a display that are to be placed on the touch-surface which will reveal real life destinations and clothing options appropriate for said location. All of this technology is done through the power of Artificial Intelligence, designed to empower and enrich the customer experience.

Myntra and Roadster’s alliance has paved the way for Myntra to develop an omni-channel presence, a feat not yet achieved by e-commerce sites in India of this scale. Roadster’s sale on Myntra constitutes of a little more than 8% of the overall revenue of Myntra, and such a partnership will help push Myntra’s dream of technology integration to the customer buying experience.

Ananth Narayan, CEO of Myntra & Jabong, spoke at the occasion of the store’s soft opening. He said that the store’s opening was the first step in Myntra’s plan to expand in the offline market and a brand like Roadster, with a growth rate of 80% YoY, will make for a very beneficial partnership for Roadster to boost its products and Myntra to become more omnipresent in the Indian retail market. He added that the store would be a transformative experience for customers through the technology that they will get to experience and bring in a new era of the shopping experience overall.

Adding to that, Manohar Kamath, Head of Myntra’s Fashion Brands, said that the store will be an addition to the portfolio of what Myntra has to and can offer to customers and the store’s design will prove to be a game changer for the future of retail.

Through the new ad campaign, Myntra is trying to portray itself as not just a one-stop destination for all your sports apparel and accessories, but also the fact that it is not just the category leader in many areas, it is also big on sports. And why not, when 30 per cent of Myntra’s business is sportswear, including sports footwear.

The TVC has been created and produced by Taproot Dentsu. Speaking on the occasion, Ayesha Ghosh, General Manger, Taproot Dentsu, said “As an e-commerce platform, Myntra’s edge lies in the width and depth of offerings, as well as the ease with which to access them.

It speaks to anyone, whether serious about sport or not. While not the focus of the story, the service aspects of assisted shopping and shoe finder technology convey the required expertise for Myntra to take the high ground on sport.”
