The American fashion designer is currently in the Holy Land to promote its first ever Hilfiger store, and to see his friend Bar Refaeli, of course
The preeminent American fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger arrived in Tel Aviv Wednesday to witness the opening of Israel's flagship Tommy Hilfiger store.
Though they may be a bit late to the party, it will be interesting to see how the store does against Israel's major players in the fashion industry, including Castro, Zara and Fox.
The store is the first ever Hilfiger-only retailer in Israel, and will be opened in Tel Aviv's Sorona neighbourhood, which also features a variety of trendy high-end restaurants.
Looks like Tommy's in good company.
Of course, during his short 24-hour stay, Hilfiger had the chance to spend time with the one and only Bar Refaeli. The two have worked on several projects together before, including a TV documentary Hilfiger produced, "Ironic Iconic America" which lands Refaeli in the starring role.
In addition to posing for pics together (see above), Refaeli also posted a pic of her and Hilfiger onto her Instagram:
