Patta x Tommy Hilfiger Celebrates Freedom and Unity

by OVERSTANDARD

Dutch clothing brand PATTA has teamed up with the iconic American brand Tommy Hilfiger, for the first time. The collaboration celebrates the the Pan-African flag, which symbolizes the unity and freedom of Africans. The inspiration for the single-drop capsule is black unity and community, with the Pan-African flag as a point of reference. Tommy’s signature colors of white, red and blue have been replaced by the traditional pan-African colors of red, black, green, putting African culture at the forefront.

To further underscore the collection’s message, Patta has produced “Katibo Eye,” a documentary directed by award-winning Dutch film director Frank Zichem, which will be available to view on PattaxTommy.com on a limited basis.

The flim follows Clarence Breeveld, a Suriname-born man living in the Netherlands as he tries to trace the shipping route from Ghana to Suriname that was traveled by his enslaved ancestors.

The Patta x Tommy Hilfiger collection will be available April 9, on the Patta and PattaxTommy websites.
