Once shunned by the liberal world, the Hijab is often seen as a symbol of sexual regression but has in recent years slowly made a come back in mainstream fashion, with the likes of Nike, recognized as the most admired brand in Africa, fittingly hailed for opening the door for female athletes of all faiths upon introducing the sports hijab back in 2017.
Powered by the brand’s philosophy of inclusivity, Tommy Hilfiger is the latest global fashion powerhouse to receive a considerable amount of praise as it unveils its first ever hijab.
Crafted from a fine, woven jacquard with a light shimmer of soft lurex thread, the hijab’s lightweight material allows for ultimate breathability and elegant comfort.
It’s available for purchase globally, including South Africa in select Tommy Hilfiger stores and on tommy.com.
