The partnership strengthens the bonds between the racing and fashion worlds while giving a platform to underrepresented communities.

Tommy Hilfiger, which is owned by PVHCorp. announced together with Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team that New York streetwear brand Awake NY has co-created the new Tommy x Mercedes-AMG F1 x Awake NY collection and campaign. Launching for the 2023 Miami Grand Prix, the collection combines Awake NY’s founder Angelo Baque’s street-style sensibility with TOMMY HILFIGER’s signature prep aesthetic to create a range of motorsport-inspired lifestyle icons that dares to be different.

The collaboration between Tommy Hilfiger, Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team, and Awake NY is a fusion of fashion and motorsport, combining each brand’s unique style and ethos to create a new collection that caters to a younger, more diverse demographic. This partnership has the potential to attract both F1 and fashion fans who are interested in both worlds and creates a new experience for racegoers.

The partnership goes beyond just marketing as it aims to strengthen the bond between the racing and fashion worlds while giving a platform to underrepresented communities. The inclusion of Awake NY, a brand known for its support of social causes and emphasis on diverse representation, highlights the importance of inclusivity and diversity in both fashion and motorsports.

Overall, the collaboration aims to challenge conventions, break boundaries, and appeal to a new generation of consumers who value individuality and inclusivity. The project is a strategic move to stay relevant and attract a younger, more diverse audience. The impact on fans and luxury customers will depend on how well the collaboration is received, but it has the potential to create a buzz and generate interest in both the Tommy Hilfiger and Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team brands.

“I have been an F1 fan since I was a kid, and we’ve been breaking conventions in our partnerships with the sport since the ‘90s” said Tommy Hilfiger. “With this collaboration, we wanted to continue to innovate with both design and an inclusive spirit to create a bold new perspective for the next generation of racegoers.” Angelo Baque, an immense admirer of Lewis Hamilton and fan of Formula 1, was able to lend his design values and ethos to the community, culture and city of Miami in celebration of its Grand Prix weekend.”
