Last September, Perry Ellis International, Inc (PEI)., announced its partnership with Miami Dolphins quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa. This month, the company launched its debut collection with Tagovailoa. Infusing the brand’s modern aesthetic with vibrant island influences, the designs offer a fresh take on Tagovailoa’s Hawaiian heritage. 

“This collection captures the essence of my journey and diverse cultural influences,” says Tagovailoa. “With Perry Ellis, we crafted a versatile wardrobe celebrating island life for the modern man.” 

Tagovailoa’s x Perry Ellis collection introduces a vibrant palette reminiscent of lush tropics and turquoise waters, balanced with crisp whites and earthy neutrals for relaxed escapism. Taking cues from Samoan palm weaving, it features distinctive patterns and textures woven into lightweight, breathable fabrics. 

“Collaborating with Tua, we aimed to uphold modern American style while honoring his influences,” says Oscar Feldenkreis, president, chief executive officer, Perry Ellis International. “It’s a distinctive lineup celebrating personal expression and island living. This partnership with Tua Tagovailoa and the Miami Dolphins marks an exciting new chapter for Perry Ellis. Tua embodies the ‘always ready’ mentality that defines our brand’s spirit. We aim to capture that essence of confidence and versatility through this collection while forging deeper connections with the sports world. We’re eager to grow alongside Tua and the dynamic Dolphins community.” 

Launching the multiyear partnership between the quarterback and the brand, this debut collection can be purchased at Perryellis.com, select stores and other retailers.
