Big day for announcements in Tommy Hilfiger-land. The American sportswear mogul has appointed Simon Spurr—who designs his own eponymous label and has worked at Yves Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein, and Ralph Laurem—to the post of creative consultant for Hilfiger's mens' line.
Also on the newslist for Hilfiger this morning is the announcement of his impending Tokyo flagship—an 11,000 square foot corner property on the corner of Omotesando Avenue and Meiji Dori, his largest store in Asia. "The Harajuku store will capture the global classic American cool essence of the brand," Hilfiger told WWD, "while also embracing Japanese heritage."
