Indya Moore and Tommy Hilfiger Release Non-gendered Capsule Collection
Indya Moore, the nonbinary actor, and activist has co-designed a capsule collection with Tommy Hilfiger
called Tommy x Indya.
The size-inclusive, non-gendered designs are part of Hilfiger’s People’s Place Program, a three-pillared platform with the mission of advancing representation in fashion and beyond. The summer pre-fall 2021 Tommy x Indya capsule will be available in the U.S., Brazil, and Europe beginning Tuesday on tommy.com as well as at select locations globally.
Moore, who starred in the FX series “Pose,” said they’ve never designed apparel before and jumped at the opportunity.
“Of course, I would always be interested in a fashion brand like Tommy,” said Moore, 26, in a telephone interview. “It’s a pretty incredible opportunity. Being invited to come on the team for who I am. Tommy knows who I am, they know what I’m about and what I stand for…they wanted me because of who I am and how I show up,” said Moore, who began their career as a model at age 15 while they were moving through foster homes and enduring bullying at school. After dropping out in the 10th grade (and eventually earning a general equivalency diploma), Moore worked various photoshoots for the likes of Dior and Gucci. They were the first trans person to be featured on the cover of Elle magazine and were selected by Time Magazine for its 2019 List of 100 Most Influential People. (Read More

Telfar, a Liberian-American fashion designer, is also a DJ and the founder of TELFAR, a genderless fashion label. With the partnership, Converse and Telfar have introduced a unisex twist on a basketball style. The aim of the collection is to bring a new community into the world of sport.

drop. Telfar is known for his evocative collections and brings that to the fore again for the Converse X Telfar drop.
Reimagining the classic Pro Leather sneaker, it has been reinterpreted for a new generation. As a result, two new silhouettes are introduced, the All-Star Slide and the Pro Leather Slip-On. For the All-Star Slide, it features a clean and casual slip-on sandal. Additionally, the design applies a hoops-inspired aesthetic. This is brought to the fore with a bold graphic and contrasting details.
The slip-on has the Box Star graphic on the front, with EVA foam cushioning for all-day comfort. Furthermore, it has a fine rubber mould strap and corduroy ribbing texture on the base. (Read More
