The Knight has a keen interest in fashion

Apart from being one of the most talented drivers on the grid, Hamilton has an interest away from the grid as well. The Mercedes driver has invested his time in music and particularly fashion.

He joined hands with Tommy Hilfiger to make an eco-friendly clothing line.

He said, “The goal with the Tommy Hilfiger collections is to do it right, so at the end I can take the Tommy name away from it and it still stands on its own, that’s the real dream!

“25% of the current collection is eco-friendly and is recyclable material, the second collection is close to 40% and my goal is when I get to stand alone is that 100% of all the material I use will be eco-friendly.”

Speaking about how his journey in fashion began, Hamilton said, “When I was in my old team I wasn’t allowed to go and do these other things, so when I joined Mercedes I was able to be vocal about the other interests that I have. I told them, ‘I want to go to fashion shows and I want to see what it’s all about.”

“And when I went I was really blown away because the shows I went to were quite intense and so much work had gone into it and there were so many people working in the background,” Hamilton concluded
