The star designer, who has been mentored through the years by fashion icon Tommy Hilfiger, might be placing a nine-piece capsule collection on Amazon’s The Drop, a trend-focused, street-focused business model, on Halloween Day. The gathering might be available for less than 30 hours.

The pieces will include a cutout blazer dress that could be worn as a dress or jacket, oversize cargo pants, bodysuits and a stretch leather corset. They might be priced for $100 or less and made to order for every customer. Sizes will range from XXS to 5X.

The under $100 price tag is a departure from Hunte’s regular collection under the Romeo Hunte Recent York label, where many items sell for $500 and up. But The Drop is a price-focused operation by Amazon that’s full of cutting-edge fashion.

“We’re excited to be taking this step with Amazon and sit up for hearing customer feedback,” Hunte said in an email.

The designer said Amazon’s The Drop provided the framework for the capsule, and he provided the creativity and vision for the gathering that captures the newest trends.

Hunte, who grew up in Brooklyn, Recent York, attended the Fashion Institute of Technology after turning down two full athletic scholarships for track and field.

Eight years ago, Hunte launched his namesake brand centering on womenswear while working full time as a private shopper in luxury retail and in editorial styling. He soon caught the eye of Hilfiger.

Last 12 months, the 2 partnered to launch the Tommy x Romeo capsule collection. The twin-gender fall collection dug into the Hilfiger archives, using Hunte’s signature deconstruction techniques to reconstruct, remix and reimagine iconic pieces comparable to the classic bonded trench coat remixed with sailing jacket colorblocking or clashed with a leather biker jacket.

Hunte’s designs became popular after Zendaya sported a glance he created. Soon, other celebrities donning his work included Beyoncé, Jennifer Hudson, Selena Gomez, Tessa Thompson and Laverne Cox.
