Peter Som is leaving his consulting position at Tommy Hilfiger after five years. Som started his eponymous company in 2001, and was brought onto the Hilfiger team as a creative consultant in 2009 to refresh and modernize the label.
The decision to part with the company was mutual and amicable for both sides, and as such, Som won’t be involved in Hilfiger’s spring 2013 womenswear line. The designer tells WWD:
It was a pleasure getting to know Tommy personally, and an honor to work with him — he has been a wonderful mentor. I look forward to focusing on my own business and the other opportunities I have ahead of me.”
