Six-time Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton loves athleisure wear, but he also proves his luxury style. He keeps even his most chilled street looks very high-fashion. In 2018, he teamed up with American fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger to create his own line called TommyXLewis.
The British races, 30, plans for a career outside of F1 as a fashion designer.
He said: “You’re always judged fashion-wise, particularly when you’re at fashion shows when you go to events or galas.
“Even when you’re seen in the street you’re judged when you’re in the fashion space. That’s nothing new. But this is different because I’m so heavily involved in the whole design process. I really designed this collection. I chose every fabric, every finish, all the tiny details that I’ve been working on. This is my first time designing.
“Naturally I’ve had the right guidance, I’ve suggested some things and maybe do it this way. But I’m really excited. But I’ll be nervous for my first show. I’ve been heavily hands-on with how the show is presented, the music.
“I’ve styled all the models; the whole process has been incredible. I’m nervous to see people’s reactions. So far the reaction’s been really good on social media, people like Will Smith and Justin Bieber, a real positive reception so far.
“It’s going to be crazy, because I’m going to walk out at the end of the show with Tommy, which has been a dream. It’s going to be a moment I’ll never forget, and the opportunity I’m really so grateful for. I’m just super excited.
“I’ve watched someone like Kanye West for example, and seeing him make the transition from being a musician to a designer with his trainers. Sometimes he’s wearing something that no one else has, and everyone starts talking about it. Hopefully, one day, that will be the case on my side.”
