Tommy Hilfiger’s latest collaboration is racing the track. The designer has launched a sporty capsule collection with Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team designer Clarence Ruth. The line features a motorsport-inspired range of jackets, jerseys, chino pants, T-shirts, and more, cast in Hilfiger’s signature red, blue, and white—plus with bursts of beige, black, and turquoise.

You can shop the full collection now on Hilfiger’s website, as well as AMG Petronas’ website and select Tommy Hilfiger stores.

“Clarence Ruth is a force to be reckoned with,” said Hilfiger. “It’s been incredible watching him grow since we started working together during the Tommy Hilfiger New Legacy Challenge back in 2022. This is a collection that blurs the lines of fashion and motorsports through Ruth’s visionary lens. Today’s classics, inspired by tomorrow’s talent.”
