Tommy Hilfiger "loves" festive traditions.

The 65-year-old fashion designer - who founded his eponymous label in 1985 - has admitted he loves nothing more than getting into the Christmas spirit, and has revealed his "favourite memories" are spending quality time with his wife Dee Ocleppo and children Ally Hilfiger, Richard Hilfiger, Elizabeth Hilfiger, Sebastian Thomas Hilfiger and Kathleen Hilfiger over the festive season.

The creative mastermind said: "I love festive traditions and some of my favourite memories are from holidays spent with my whole family."

And Tommy, who recently unveiled the Tommy Hilfiger Autumn/Winter 2016 campaign for the fashion house, which stars brand ambassador Gigi Hadid and was photographed Gregory Harris, has admitted the catwalk icon has brought "festive spirit to life" in the commercial.

Speaking to the about the Hilfiger Holiday Voyage Christmas advert, which sees the blonde beauty adorn a metallic embellished t-shirt dress, and a navy blue sequin long-sleeved crop top with a coordinating maxi skirt, Tommy said: "This season, our global ambassador Gigi Hadid really brings the festive spirit to life - her look is effortlessly glamorous with a relaxed twist. From embellished evening wear to everyday essentials, our signature holiday style is all about celebrating the season with an elegant, playful edge."

Meanwhile, Tommy has revealed the 21-year-old fashion icon is "the epitome" of the Tommy Girl.

Speaking previously about Gigi - who was announced as the ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger in 2015 - Tommy said: "She has great personal style coming from Southern California, growing up in Malibu, going to school in Malibu, being very sporty and athletic and All-American with an exotic twist. I thought, 'This is the epitome of the Tommy Girl.' "

And the catwalk icon is honoured to be a part of the designer label and design her own capsule for the fashion house titled Tommy x Gigi because she has been a fan of the garments ever since a young age.

Gigi - who has recently starred in the brands latest fragrance campaign for The Girl perfume - said: "It's a dream come true - I've been a fan of Tommy all my life. So thrilled Tommy approached me to collaborate."
