Travis Barker Plays Surprise Drums For Tommy Hilfiger’s NYFW Finale


NEW YORK — The show must go on!

Tommy Hilfiger closed the first week of New York Fashion Week with an element of surprise: heavy rain on an outdoor aluminum catwalk.

The public waited impatiently under ponchos and plastic umbrellas as employees rushed to sweep the rain off the runway before models strutted through Hilfiger’s Fall 2022 “See Now, Buy Now” collection. The set, called Tommy Factory, was inspired by Andy Warhol’s New York studio where the designer and the artist first met.

Rather than fall victim to less than ideal weather, Hilfiger models including Winnie Harlow, Ashley Graham and Julia Fox used it to their advantage.

Beyoncé’s “Renaissance” hits “Break My Soul” and “Summer Renaissance,” Missy Elliott’s “Lose Control” and Megan Thee Stallion’s “Her” blasted through the speakers as models circled the stage with the New York skyline behind them.

Audio clips of Hilfiger and Warhol’s conversations were also incorporated into the show.

Hilfiger’s Fall 2022 designs featured a new monogram print designed in partnership with Fergus Purcell and British designer Richard Quinn. Classic jackets, turtleneck sweaters and denim sets carried the new monogram.

In a surprise twist, Barker was pulled by a dummy from his front row seat and brought onto the stage.

The drummer stripped shirtless as he continued to perform a set while the models took a final spin followed by Hilfiger.

Barker’s last hits on the drums marked the end of the show and praise from a delighted but soaked audience. Everyone did a collective exhale knowing that the models were able to stay upright.

Sunday’s show marked Hilfiger’s return to NYFW after a three-year hiatus.

“My heart immediately went to New York’s iconic creative culture when I thought of where to kick off our return to fashion week,” Hilfiger said in a press release for her show. “It’s where fashion, art, music and entertainment came together when I started in the industry. And today, it’s still this approach that inspires me to engage with cutting-edge communities by creating new creative experiences.”
