Tommy Hilfiger’s new collection which goes on sale Wednesday, uses magnets and Velcro to make it easier for people to get dressed. The line has 37 styles for men and 34 for women — shirts, pants, jackets, sweaters and dresses. The button-down shirts have buttons and cuffs that fasten with magnets to help people with disabilities take them off over their heads, or get dressed with one hand. Pants, including chinos and denim jeans, feature magnetic flies and zippers and adjustable hems to accommodate leg braces and orthotics. They also have pull-on loops inside of waistbands.
Hilfiger, owned by PVH Corp (), rolled out a line of clothes last year for children with disabilities. The brand worked with Runway of Dreams, a nonprofit that focuses on making fashion more accessible for people with disabilities.
