Elizabeth Hilfiger's Radical Streetwear Brand Makes Tattooed T-shirts
I interviewed Tommy Hilfiger's daughter Elizabeth Hilfiger about her experimental fashion label.
Foo and Foo takes classic streetwear and gives it inventive twists (T-shirts are embellished with tattoos, hoodies are adapted with piercings), but it also includes an evolving art practice.
We talked about designing for inclusivity, interactivity and comfort, and the brand's focus on collaboration (including projects with Julian Klincewicz, a multidisciplinary artist who has worked with Kanye West and Gosha Rubchinskiy, and ART.WORLD, an online art directory).
We also discussed the brand's sustainability efforts, and her father Tommy's influence in that area, and Elizabeth's desire to encourage self-expression as well as self-acceptance.
