Keith Haring’s Footwear for Tommy Hilfiger

Hey All,

I needed a new pair of jeans; plain, simple, straight-leg blue jeans. (Yeah I know, zzzzz) But anyway, when the need to buy classic jeans comes round, I always go  for an American brand. Like J Brand, True Religion, 7 for all Mankind, etc. They always fit perfectly – they usually contain Lycra, they don’t fade, go baggy, or rip easily, i.e.  they last for time. The thing is, you get what you pay for with these brands, and what you pay is pretty big dollar.

So I decided to keep it US, but go a little less cash-drastic. Hilfiger Denim on Trinity Street, D2, ought to sort me out, and it did. I bought a perfect pair of dark indigo, stretch denim, straight-leg jeans with retro orange stitching.

But whatevs about the jeans, the store was showcasing the  fantastic new Keith Haring for Tommy Hilfiger footwear collection. Keith Haring was a New York graffiti artist who set up the Keith Haring Foundation. The foundation “supports organizations that assist underprivileged children, as well as organizations engaged in education, research and care with respect to AIDS and HIV“.

The collection, released last week, includes runners (trainers), wellies, flip-flops, ballet pumps and high-tops, for men, women and kids.

Incidentally, the Keith Haring Foundation is also collaborating with Nicholas Kirkwood; in case Wellington boots aren’t your footwear of choice…

    I’ve been looking for a decent pair of jeans for months now and Topshop sizes seem to be getting smaller and shorter each week (or I’m having Alice In Wonderland-esque experience!)…I may check out Tommy!
