Indya Moore and Tommy Hilfiger have just dropped an exciting, gender-fluid capsule collection, made up of cream-hued sets, stripes and more – all thoughtfully designed to fit a diverse range of body types and gender identities.

The Tommy x Indya collection, which was released on July 13, features everything from bandeau bras to satin basketball skorts to pinstriped pants. It is inspired by the American fashion brand's archives and infused with Moore's own experiences as a non-binary actor and activist.

Moore's personal touch can be seen in details such as their initials in collegiate font, references to their hometown in Bronx, New York, and a lotus flower graphic that runs through the entire collection, a symbol of rebirth and self-actualisation.

One stand-out piece is a pair of stunning round frame glasses, featuring Moore's distinct signature on the bridge.

"This capsule goes beyond great style, " Moore said in a press release.

"It breaks a cycle and sets a new standard across the industry. Too many people are made to feel that something is wrong with them just for being themselves. It means everything to me to know that with our capsule, no one is made to feel wrong or different or broken. Everyone works perfectly for this collection, no matter who they are."

This guiding belief in diversity and acceptance is something Moore incorporates in all their creative work, especially in their starring role in FX's Pose, which just garnered nine Emmy nominations, making it a particularly apt time to support the multi-hyphenate artist.

The collaboration is also part of Tommy Hilfiger's People's Place Programme, which raises money for creatives from underrepresented BIPOC (Black, indigenous and other people of colour communities).

As part of the partnership, donations were made to Rainbow Railroad, Reuniting Of African Descants and the Global Coralition, all non-profits or grassroots projects with the aim of advancing the well-being of Black, queer, trans and/or non-binary individuals.

Inspired by these charities, Moore designed three charms featured on the Tommy x Indya bag and hat. – Anna Tingley/Reuters
