Tommy Hilfiger will launch a multi-metaverse hub at Metaverse Fashion Week, bringing interoperability closer. Tommy Hilfiger will build a spot in Decentraland that connects all of these platforms from March 28 to 31. This will let the company see how consumers react to many brand channels.
Emperia, a virtual retail technology provider, designed the hub to match the brand’s TH monogram and provide a selection of goods. Buyers can find collectible POAPs and other NFTs, DressX-powered digital fashion, works by Web3 artist Vinnie Hager, AR virtual try-on choices, a photobooth, and an AI fashion design competition (the winner of which will be selected by Tommy Hilfiger). This monolith center lets users explore various metaverses in a digital Tommy Hilfiger jacket.
Tommy Hilfiger’s designs reflect Metaverse Fashion Week
Jemma Spiers-Ware, senior director 3D experience, digital product at PVH, says the Tommy Hilfiger design rules and brand identity have to be included. “Our two key symbols, the TH Monogram and Tommy Varsity Letterman Jacket, have become recognisable staples of Metaverse Fashion Week,” she says. Tommy Hilfiger’s red, white, and blue colors accent the areas.
PVH-owned corporation is familiar with the metaverse. In September 2022, it held a Roblox show with its NYFW presentation. Showgoers may receive a free NFT. Tommy Play’s Roblox hub is a fashion metaverse foundation. Tommy Hilfiger was one of seven American designers who abandoned NFTs with the Council of Fashion Designers of America in December for the organization’s 60th anniversary. Before returning to Metaverse Fashion Week, the brand is building its hub.
Spiers-Ware says testing and learning. We may test and learn what the community wants while inviting the first movers to join this exciting experience by exploring fashion and technological prospects.
Tommy Hilfiger’s Decentraland center
If interoperability succeeds, people can freely move across virtual worlds. Metaverse and Web3 residents have long requested this capacity, but it has been difficult to achieve. Tommy Hilfiger’s center simplifies metaverse exploration. By making it accessible via Decentraland, consumers don’t have to visit many new places or download new devices (where MVFW is housed). Tommy-branded gateways make Roblox and Spatial easier to use.
“One of the major problems with the metaverse, as a concept today, is the distribution across multiple platforms, none of which speak to each other or integrate into brands’ existing digital channels,” Emperia co-founder and CEO Olga Dogadkina said. “By creating an interoperable approach, we’re able to bridge this gap and bring multi-world experiences into the brands’ Web3 and e-commerce strategy — while keeping their existing Web2 user base involved.”
Decentraland will still be newbies’ initial metaverse destination, which may be less appealing than the company’s e-commerce website. Interoperability drives adoption, according to Dogadkina. Market education and user onboarding must be smooth to make 3D and immersive experiences mainstream.
Marketers can use data from standalone virtual stores and places. Emperia may track user behavior and interest across Tommy Hilfiger’s metaverse services through its hub. Brands have never been able to analyze non-owned platforms before this cross-data strategy. When a user leaves the hub and enters the external metaverse platform, Tommy Hilfiger’s insights will be limited, but the centralized cross-platform navigation insights provide a deeper level of information than previously possible.
The hub’s e-commerce features link metaverse marketing to real-world transactions. Four products, including the Tommy varsity jacket, will be shown on multiple platforms with different renderings. Both DressX and connected ecommerce will sell them. The Ready Player Me metaverse sells the digital version, which can be worn anywhere, but the hub sells the physical version.
Dogadkina says that We enable customers to utilize their preferred payment method, decreasing usage friction, enhancing user confidence, and boosting online sales.

Data insights and Emperia’s tech will improve metaverse participation and user experience. Dogadkina expects them to boost brand loyalty and e-commerce.
This item is only available during Metaverse Fashion Week, but it could lead to a permanent connected fixture. Testing and learning are key to our plan, Spiers-Ware says “This is an exciting first step toward cross-platform connectivity.
Tommy Hilfiger’s metaverse activity aligns with the brand’s forward-looking attitude, according to Martijn Hagman, CEO of Tommy Hilfiger Worldwide and PVH Europe. He says Tommy Hilfiger has always promoted racial unity through fashion, music, art, and entertainment. “Web3 and metaverse technologies are helping the brand achieve that on an exciting scale. This shows why we will lead in inclusion and environmental sustainability in the future. Add it to our pledge.
