“From the first time I attended a Formula One race, I was completely fascinated by the world of motorsports,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “To be re-entering this arena with World Champions Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport and their number one team is an incredible way to fuse fashion and Formula One. I recognize the passion, spirit and drive that the entire Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team shows at every race, and these shared qualities are why I’m excited to partner with them for the upcoming seasons.”
For the past four Formula One seasons, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport has won both the Constructors’ and Drivers’ World Championships, with the team’s British racing driver Lewis Hamilton winning his fourth World Championship title in 2017 and Finnish driver Valtteri Bottas taking third place.
Under the long-term partnership, TOMMY HILFIGER will be the Official Apparel Partner, supplying travel and team kits, as well as office and hospitality apparel for the more than 1,500 individuals who make up the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team. The TOMMY HILFIGER logo will be featured on the team’s 2018 race cars, which will be revealed on February 22, 2018 at the Silverstone track in the United Kingdom, as well as inside the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport pit garage and other trackside assets.

The exclusive video teasers, print, online, and out of home media placements will break globally in Spring 2018 and will be supported by unique consumer activations that continue to bring the brand’s unique perspective on sport, entertainment and pop culture to life around the world. The TOMMY HILFIGER men’s campaign will run alongside the brand’s dedicated women’s advertising, which also fuses elements of speedracing with fashion, and features Gigi Hadid, international supermodel and global brand ambassador for TOMMY HILFIGER women’s.
The TOMMY HILFIGER brand heritage is closely linked to working with pop culture and sports icons. Tommy Hilfiger’s history with Formula One began with the sponsorship of the Lotus team between 1991 and 1994. In 1998, TOMMY HILFIGER became the first non-automotive brand to sponsor Ferrari, with the iconic American designer creating the uniforms for the team, which included seven-time Formula One World Champion Michael Schumacher and British racing driver Eddie Irvine. In the ‘90s, Hilfiger was also one of the first designers to blend fashion and celebrity, and he became a pioneer in the industry by dressing young artists such as Aaliyah, Mark Ronson and Usher; and featuring musicians such as David Bowie and Beyoncé in his advertising campaigns. In recent years, Tommy Hilfiger has established inspiring partnerships with international tennis champion Rafael Nadal, international supermodel Gigi Hadid, and award-winning musician/producer duo The Chainsmokers, reflecting its commitment to broaden the TOMMY HILFIGER brand’s reach and connect with the next generation of consumers.
