Tommy Hilfiger launches first-ever rental offering in the UK
Tommy Hilfiger, owned by PVH Corp., is launching a six-month partnership with My Wardrobe HQ, a European fashion re-commerce platform, to introduce fashion rentals in the UK.
Launching on June 16, Tommy Hilfiger’s rental pilot, powered by My Wardrobe HQ, will offer UK consumers the opportunity to rent or buy womenswear, footwear and accessories from the brand’s past and current seasons.
The move is part of the brand’s ongoing commitment to sustainability and its goal towards building a future of circular fashion, explained the brand in a statement.
Esther Verburg, executive vice president of sustainable business and innovation at Tommy Hilfiger Global and PVH Europe, said: “We know and believe that the future of fashion is circular, and our partnership with My Wardrobe HQ is another meaningful step in exploring circular business models.
“We are excited to challenge the status quo and offer our customers a new opportunity to enjoy classic American cool style, in a way other than buying new.”
While the initiative may only be a six-month pilot, Tommy Hilfiger added that the pilot would provide “an invaluable learning opportunity by granting insight into the needs of the re-commerce consumer and showing how this can shape future strategy”.
The Tommy Hilfiger offering launching on My Wardrobe HQ will be a curated selection for “diverse occasions,” with sizes ranging up to size UK22 and each piece will showcase both a rental and a sale price.
Sacha Newall, co-founder and chief executive of My Wardrobe HQ, added: “My Wardrobe HQ currently works with 200 brands directly offering rental and resale solutions. The B2B arm of the business has a pipeline of launches for 2022 and 2023, where we service the tech and logistics for third-party brands on a white label basis.
“It is a huge honour to add Tommy Hilfiger to the portfolio. Tommy Hilfiger have always been pioneers of sustainability in fashion and we count ourselves very fortunate to have been chosen as their launch partner for this exciting project.”
