This season Tommy Hilfiger explores his signature love of nautical, seen through a nostalgic filter where formal naval influences collide with the romance of a bygone era. It’s masculine meets feminine, charming and fun, with unexpected combinations that offer a playful sense of irreverence and cinematic flair.
Imagine a girl finding her grandmother’s favourite dress from the ‘40s, throwing on a boyfriend’s coat and a pair of sparkly shoes before dashing out the door. That carefree spirit is at the heart of the Fall 2016 line-up, hitting all the codes of classicism in a whimsical way. Military coats are steeped in tradition yet cut oversized in winter wool and trimmed with gold medals and bullion. Fisherman sweaters are softened with bits of tulle and wide-leg sailor pants turned up cropped in velvet, the perfect showcase for sky-high loafers with big sequin bows. The mix continues with Breton stripe tops done in leather, pretty pajamas and breezy silk dresses printed with drawings inspired by sailor’s tattoos.
In a casual world, it feels good to dress up in something truly special. This collection acknowledges the romance of the past and embraces the youthful energy of now.
The show was opened and closed by supermodel Gigi Hadid, the new ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger women’s, and featured other exciting top models.
