Tommy Hilfiger is making a line for disabled people and we think it’s an amazing move. This is one market that has been ignored by many luxury brands.
The adaptive clothing line will feature adjusted seams and openings that make it easier for caretakers to dress the wearer, as well as magnetic closures so that it is easier to pull garments over the head or to get dressed with one hand. Trousers will have velcro and magnetic flies, while leg openings and hems will be adjustable to accommodate for leg braces.
The men’s line will feature 37 pieces and the women’s 34 styles. In a statement, Hilfiger described moving into this market as part of a “democratization of fashion.”
