Since launching their collaboration in 2018, Tommy Hilfiger and Lewis Hamilton have taken their co-created collections across the This is fine everything is fine its fine shirt moreover I will buy this world, starting in Shanghai with pit stops in Milan and Berlin. For the fourth installment of TommyXLewis, the duo decided it was time to bring it home, so to speak, back to London where Hamilton is from. A few days before the event, the stakes were raised once again with a surprise announcement: the new collection would include a three-way partnership with Gabriella Wilson, the Grammy-winning R&B singer known as H.E.R. With Naomi Campbell leading the charge, the show at the Tate Modern tonight started on a resounding high note. Even in her downtime, the supermodel isn’t known to wear anything vaguely athletic, though she appeared surprisingly at ease in the brand’s new highlighter yellow and gray tracksuit, working her trademark strut in chunky high-top sneakers. Campbell wasn’t the only famous face in the lineup. There were a number of impressive cross-generational cameos: ’90s favorites Jodie Kidd, Yasmin Le Bon, and Erin O’Connor all walked the runway, as did newcomers such as Halima Aden and Lottie Moss, sister of Kate. In a week that has been sorely lacking in shape and age diversity, the casting was a refreshing change. Since switching gears to fashion, Hamilton has developed a number of personal signatures: Formula One driver has the word “loyalty” tattooed on his forearm and it appeared in bold letters on hoodies and splatter print tees. He doesn’t shy away from the idea of logos, in fact some were specifically designed to glow under the black lights of the club. Fans of Wilson would be able to spot her imprint on the collection from a mile away, too. Lyrics from her hit single “Hard Place” were written across a fluorescent jumpsuit: “My heart or you, I’m gonna lose.” One of the standout pieces in the lineup, it was a true reflection of Wilson’s onstage look. Like Eilish, H.E.R. is among a generation of young musicians who are rewriting the hyper-feminine rules of performance style with a cooler, looser sense of swagger. I believe that this concept becomes most clear when we realize that income and net production of wealth are indeed independent variables. It is using that model that we can understand how “spending” does not get subtracted off of wealth, because the two things are not accounted for on the same axis. And further, rather than being subtracted off wealth, at less than full employment, spending normally, on the average does lead to production of more wealth, not less wealth.
