Tommy Hilfiger treated his audience to a trip to the slopes this morning. The snowy scene (made more believable by the fact that New York is currently covered in the stuff) was set with a chalet perched up top, skis and poles propped up against a rack and a chair lift over heads as models weaved their way on a makeshift runway dotted with baby pine trees.
The theme was the great American outdoors – a clue show-goers picked up from the invitation – a mountaineering clip knotted in hiking rope. The opening looks comprising sheepskin lined parkas and plaid cemented proceedings.In fact, check provided the baseline here – from tartan wool cashmere sweater dresses to mohair pieces and silk shirting, it even appeared as accents on peacoats. That mountaineering idea was cleverly played out in less obvious ways too, like bungee cord button holes and elasticated drawstrings cinching in the waist on performance jackets.
Blanket dressing, a trend spotted at the recent round of pre-fall collections, continued here in the shape of maxi skirts with fringed trims.
In keeping with Tommy Hilfiger’s last few collections, this was another youth-centric offering. Those fun flippy tiered miniskirts partnered with shrunken teddy fur bomber jackets is a jaunty look that will appeal to twenty-something’s the world over.
