Tommy Hilfiger Steps Into Kids Shoes For Fall 2012
After taking a bit of a hiatus, Tommy Hilfiger is reintroducing their children’s footwear line for Fall 2012 – this time with a new licensee. Synclaire Brands will be taking the place of Stride Rite who previously held the license. According to WWD, the line will take inspiration from the latest footwear trends, interpreting them within the Tommy Hilfiger world.
The collection will include boots, ballet flats and slippers for the girls and loafers, sneakers and hikers for boys. Look for stripes, color-blocking and plaid and houndstooth patterns, using tweed, denim, corduroy and chambray fabrics. Extra attention was paid to detail, from trims to printed linings.
The new collection is slated to ship to stores in July and prices will range from $20 to $50. Hilfiger plans on expanding the line to include flip-flops, sandals, nautical looks and a wider range of sneakers for spring ’13.
