The designer label rose to prominence in the 1980s and 1990s and established itself as a hallmark of Hip-Hop style. Through advertising campaigns, everyone from Snoop Dogg to Raekwon to TLC wore Tommy Hilfiger clothing, and the late Aaliyah served as the brand’s ambassador.
Aries, a luxury streetwear company headquartered in London and established by Sofia Prantera, and GloRilla have teamed up for a new advertising campaign.
