Not one to shy away from brand expansion, just a brief glance at the Tommy Hilfiger website will give you an insight into the number of different lines and collaborations that the American label currently offers.

But alongside its hugely popular Tommy Jeans line and capsule collections with Gigi Hadid and The Chainsmokers, the 66-year-old is now expanding one area of his brand that was only recently established.

Having released a line of adaptive clothing for children last year, Hilfiger is now launching a collection for adults with disabilities.

Comprising of 37 menswear and 34 womenswear pieces, the line will reportedly be based on the brand's sportswear collection.

Trousers will have Velcro closures with some consisting of adjusted leg openings and hems to accommodate for leg braces.

Other pieces will havce magnetic closures to ensure ease when pulling garments over the head or to help dressing with one hand.

According to InStyle, Tommy Hilfiger said: "Inclusivity and democratization of fashion have always been at the core of my brand’s DNA."

"These collections continue to build on that vision, empowering the differently abled community. It developed the adult lines following the incredible response to the children’s collection."
