Tommy Hilfiger: A Culture of Innovation

Tommy Hilfiger: A Culture of Innovation

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands — Since its launch in 1985, the Tommy Hilfiger brand has achieved global renown as a pioneer of American preppy style with a twist. Present on five continents, in 2015 the brand generated $6.5 billon in retail sales through its extensive distribution network, spanning 115 countries. In 2010, the Tommy Hilfiger business was acquired by PVH Corp., with the brand’s eponymous founder staying on as principal designer, re-energising its creative momentum and ushering in a new era of innovation at the company.

That commitment to innovation is best exemplified by the company’s willingness to overhaul its go-to-market model, radically reducing its lead-time to market, which necessitated the involvement of every single associate and partner across the globe. Today, the success of that initiative, along with others including a fully digitised show room and an incubator team for new ideas, has created a virtuous cycle — where the increased profits are channeled directly back in to innovation, placing Tommy Hilfiger firmly back at the forefront of the fashion industry.

What has driven Tommy Hilfiger’s recent momentum?

TH: Our people. The exciting, innovative and revolutionary ideas that we have implemented in recent years have all come from within our organisation. I am really proud of our people and our teams for driving our company’s entrepreneurial spirit in their work every day.

DG: I agree. The brand’s momentum stems from the fact that every associate at Tommy Hilfiger understands that to truly disrupt and innovate within our industry we have to be willing to reinvent every aspect of the business each and every day. It is about being open to doing things differently. That entrepreneurial spirit and passion for innovation is fundamental to our business. Everything we do today, we have to ask ourselves, is this still the right way for tomorrow? We have to react to a world that is moving faster and faster. As I have always said, the biggest risk is to take no risk at all.
