TOMMY HILFIGER CELEBRATES OPENING OF EXHIBITIONISM – THE ROLLING STONES’ FIRST INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION IN LONDON
Tommy Hilfiger, which is owned by PVH Corp. [NYSE: PVH], announces that Mr. Tommy Hilfiger attended the opening of EXHIBITIONISM – The Rolling Stones’ first international exhibition – at the Saatchi Gallery in London on April 4, 2016. Tommy joined the Rolling Stones band, including Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts, to celebrate the opening night gala.
As the exhibit’s official apparel sponsor, Tommy Hilfiger has designed a limited-edition Hilfiger Denim capsule collection of graphic t-shirts and custom jackets adorned with Rolling Stones imagery and the band’s iconic tongue logo – the most globally-recognized music logo in the world. The capsule collection will launch on tommy.com in Europe and at the Tommy Hilfiger London flagship store on Regent Street, and roll out to tommy.com sites globally and additional Tommy Hilfiger stores worldwide as the exhibit travels to new cities.
“It’s been an amazing journey working with the Rolling Stones since we first sponsored their tour in 1999, and it’s an honor to be here in London with them to support EXHIBITIONISM as the exhibit’s official apparel sponsor,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “Music has always been one of my biggest sources of inspiration, and EXHIBITIONISM is an incredible retrospective of one of the greatest rock bands of all time.”
The Rolling Stones said: “In curating EXHIBITIONISM we opened our archives and looked back through all our best artifacts and memorabilia – it reminded us of what an incredible journey we’ve had.”
Guests were invited to tour the exhibition before joining a red carpet cocktail reception. EXHIBITIONISM explores the musical heritage that took the Rolling Stones from a London blues band in the early 1960s to a global cultural phenomenon. It features over 500 rare and original Rolling Stones’ artifacts, ranging from never-before-seen dressing room paraphernalia to instruments, iconic costumes, poster and album artwork, personal diaries, rare audio tracks and unique video footage.
