Tommy x Zendaya Spring 2019

When the original Battle of Versailles happened in 1973, an African-American hadn’t yet made it onto the cover of American Vogue (that would be Beverly Johnson in 1974), much less into the creative director role at a European luxury house like Virgil Abloh at Louis Vuitton Men’s. Fashion’s record of inclusion is still far from perfect, but on Saturday night in Paris, Tommy Hilfiger and multi-hyphenate Zendaya reminded everyone of America’s role in the change with their celebration of diverse beauty featuring models of color in all sizes to launch the first Tommy x Zendaya collection in stores now.
Roller disco dancers on an illuminated runway warmed up the crowd of over 1,000 guests at the Art Deco-style Théâtre des Champs-Élysées on Avenue Montaigne, including previous Hilfiger collaborator Gigi Hadid, Janelle Monáe, Yara Shahidi and Luka Sabbat.
It turns out roller discos aren’t unfamiliar territory for five-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton, whose second collection for Hilfiger drops in a couple of weeks.
“My dad use to go to roller discos in the Eighties,” he told WWD. “So when I was younger, I used to borrow his skates and go to a couple of places in Stevenage, where I grew up in Britain.”
