Tommy Hilfiger Snap App

Winner in Fashion

Audience Honor in Fashion

Entered in Technology


In February, Tommy Hilfiger became the first brand to launch 3D image recognition commerce on the runway, introducing an instant way to shop the TOMMYNOW catwalk. Via the custom branded TOMMYLAND SNAP:SHOP app designed in partnership with top visual search technology developer, Slyce, consumers can shop from photos of 3D moving images, such as models walking the runway, or 2D images such as ad placements allowing for even greater accessibility to the collection for consumers at the show, and those tuning in via live stream around the world.

With rapid increases in image search queries and over three billion photos shared on mobile apps every day, image recognition commerce has incredible potential to transform how consumers search and shop for the looks they love.

TOMMYNOW is an incubator for innovative technologies and our leadership in democratizing the runway and pioneering instant gratification runway shows fuels our passion for finding new ways to engage, involve and empower consumers to take part in these experiences. In February, we pushed the boundaries even further to connect with global consumers in a way that reflects how they live and shop today. Taking photos of models is already one of the most popular things the audience do at fashion shows and leveraging Slyce's visual search technology, the TOMMYLAND SNAP:SHOP app was an organic way to unlock a magical shopping experience by instantly turning a photo of a model into a wish-list of all the items in their look.
