It's Throwback Thursday (better known as #tbt) and with all the fuss surrounding the return of Back to The Future, we’ve, ironically, travelled back in time to revive the heydays of a young Michael J Fox (Marty McFly) in his denim and bomber jackets in the 1985 iconic film.

We're reviving some of Tommy Hilfiger's most iconic pieces, as online luxury retailer MyTheresa.com teams up with the American giant to create a re-edition capsule collection of eight pieces, priced between £160 and £365, featuring updated versions of the brand's bomber jackets, sweater, t-shirts and boxers.

There's something eternally cool about the red, white ane blue logomania adopted from the US flag, but buying flag-emblazoned clothes isn't cool anymore. Fact. MyTheresa, however, has given it a second chance and revamped it in iconic sweatshirts - they've been updated into a cropped fit and crafted from plush velvet. The varsity jacket has been updated in velvet and satin versions adorned with a "H" applique.

Tommy Hilfiger is simply a cultural signs of fashion's favourite era. You would remember when Snoop Dogg rocked a Tommy rugby shirt while performing on Saturday Night Life and when Kate Moss walked the brand's spring/summer 1997 catwalk clad in red, white and blue.
