The duo traveled from LAX to Michael Heizer’s ranch in Nevada in order to see the artist’s land art piece, City, driving through Vegas and Area 51 along the way. The custom bus will be on-view in Milan on February 19. They are also available to order. Owens also designed Moncler clothes, which he and Lamy wore on tour.

Correct! Wrong!

On Sunday, Naomi Campbell led an all-star cast — including Winnie Harlow, James Turlington, Jordan Barrett, Alessandra Ambrosio, Georgia May Jagger, Jourdan Dunn, Karen Elson, Candice Swanepoel, and Halima Aden, among others — down the runway at Tommy Hilfiger’s London Fashion Week Show. The event, which took place London’s Tate Modern in The Tanks. The utilitarian feels of the space thematically referenced Hilfiger’s sustainability vision. The designer offset the show’s estimated 1,600 tons of carbon emissions by partnering with South Pole to provide ceramic water purifiers to communities in Cambodia. The filters provide safe drinking water and reduce indoor air pollution from wood burning. This also decreases household fuel costs and pressure on Cambodia’s vulnerable forest. The collection itself boasted some eco-friendly milestones as well. The TommyXLewis collection, in collaboration with Lewis Hamilton, used 100 percent organic cotton, recycled materials, and low-impact denim washes. Additionally, over 75 percent of the styles were sustainably sourced. This season also saw a collaboration with Grammy award-winner H.E.R., whose lyrics were featured across 12 genderless, body-inclusive pieces. As with all TOMMYNOW shows, the collection — including the TommyXLewis and TommyXLewisXH.E.R. lines — are available online now.
