Last week, Tommy Hilfiger launched his SS17 Women’s Fashion Show on famed Venice Beach in California. The show opens with Gigi Hadid strutting down the runway with her steely blue-eyed gaze, and long, flowing golden locks. She is wearing a color block midriff top, black leather pants and an oversized jacket hanging off of her shoulders. At this point I knew the rest of the show would be a treat!
Deviating from his traditional looks, Hilfiger’s SS17 collaboration with Gigi is more sporty and fun! He blended the brand’s usual Red, White, and Blue–homage to the All-American, with bright yellow, striped, patchy denim, and shocking prints. Hilfiger also played with metallics and frayed details. I love when a designer blurs gender lines. While there were some masculine elements, such as baggy pants and hoodies, there were also feminine, maxi dresses and and blouses.
The line also included Varsity jackets that would all make us reminisce about our high school years. Western boots, heavy knits and leather shorts screamed American Pride and our appreciation for style and comfort. There is something in the collection for everyone, whether you are going on a weekend trip to the Hamptons, hanging with friends on South Beach, or running late to a lecture at Princeton.
