Tommy Hilfiger is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, and with it making two pieces walking its catwalk show at New York Fashion Week on Monday, immediately available to buy.

These limited edition commemorative styles include a varsity-inspired faux fur V-neck sweater in burgundy and oyster grey, and a zip-top oversized leather clutch in five colours. Both feature the brand’s milestone birthday emblazoned on them to match the heavy sports-themed autumn/winter 2015/16 collection.

Shown here are sketches of the sweater, as well as some of the other looks due to hit the catwalk. Fans following Tommy via social media will also be able to see snapshots of models wearing the looks at a pre-show backstage rally.

Some of those images will come courtesy of the Twitter Mirror. As with designer Matthew Williamson who used this in the past, this is a software application that allows the user (in this case the models), to take a ‘selfie’, edit it with a personalised comment and then share it via @tommyhilfiger. Bloggers and VIPs are also expected to participate.

Tommy will also be handing the reins of its Instagram account over to It-couple Olive Palermo and Johannes Huebl this season, following in the footsteps of Alexa Chung who did the same for spring/summer 2015.

The brand’s First Timers campaign, which brings a group of digital influencers to a fashion show for the first time, as also debuted in September 2014, will continue once more. On Monday that will include vlogger and filmmaker Charlie McDonnell, and Instagram and Tumblr photographer Bryant Eslava.
