Tommy Hilfiger has just released a glossy coffee table book, Tommy Hilfiger, in celebration of his eponymous brand's 25th anniversary. "This book is a culmination of my life's work, sharing some of my innermost thoughts throughout the years," Hilfiger said. "It's the equivalent of me telling a friend about my family, how I got to where I am today, and where I want to go from here." Throughout the 144 photo album-like pages, Hilfiger shares intimate moments, from family boating trips to shots of friends wearing the collection. The limited-edition book (there are only 1,000 copies available) is available at assouline.com and select Tommy Hilfiger boutiques; it retails for $550 and is elegantly packaged in a linen clamshell box. Bonus: The title also features tributes from some of Hilfiger's famous friends. Read what Britney Spears had to say after the jump!
"I remember the firs time I met Tommy. I went to see him at his office, and he had the most amazing gift for me. He gave me a pair of Marilyn Monroe's jeans that she wore in one of her movies. He said that I reminded him of her so he bought them for me at an auction. It was so nice of him. I was blown away by that. I still have the jeans, and they're very special to me, although I must say that I've caught my mama wearing them a few times...ha-ha-ha!"
