Tommy Hilfiger has existed as a brand for 25 years now. And this achievement naturally calls for celebration. Assouline has taken upon itself to celebrate both the man and the brand through a new luxury book. The book takes a close look at 25 years of Hilfiger fashion and how it has developed and grown over the years to occupy the prestigious position in the fashion world today.
Assouline’s Ultimate Collection uses a photo album format to capture the essence of a designer and his all American style. Tommy Hilfiger seemed very happy and satisfied with the special edition, “This book is a culmination of my life’s work, sharing some of my innermost thoughts throughout the years.” He said that his work is older than his brand as he has been designing all his life. He described the effort as if he was talking to a friend or family about his journey in life and hoped the readers will enjoy reading it as much as he enjoyed making it.
Since the book is dedicated to the life and work of Tommy Hilfiger we must also talk about the design and the look of the book also. It is 14 X 17 inches and has 144 pages with over 200 illustrations. The book comes in a linen clamshell box with gold embroidered logo. It will sell for $550.
