Tim Hamilton might just be the king of the collaboration. Not satisfied with previous stints with TopMan, Lacoste footwear, and Uniqlo (not to mention his main collection or his diffusion line Tim Hamilton Redux), Hamilton is planning to release a new line of basics exclusively co-branded with Bergdorf Goodman. His new capsule line, due out next month, will still maintain the established Tim Hamilton aesthetic—somber color palette with hints of bold colors, asymmetrical cuts fused with forward-thinking silhouettes for the guys—but will thankfully be priced around 30% lower than his main collection line.
In today's WWD, Hamilton says he was aiming for basics. "The designs are relatively simple but we worked hard to elevate the quality and the details to make them special."
Here's what you can expect:
Polos ranging from $195 to $250
Chinos marked at $250 to $295
Shirts priced at $225, hoodies at $295, cardigans at $325 and a blazer at $595.
All of the above items will be made in Japan, except the blazer, which is (oddly enough) made in Queens. BG has been a loyal Hamilton supporter, carrying his range since his launch in 2007. This season, they'll be focusing on the new venture, which means they won't be carrying his main collection.
Meanwhile, next month during New York Fashion week, Hamilton will be showing separate presentations for his collection and Redux lines. When does he sleep?—Yale Breslin
