Tommy Hilfiger Celebrates 30 Years in Fashion with his American Football Love Story
Fashion One brings you the Tommy Hilfiger fall/winter 2015 presentation from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. Take a look a look at the guests arriving at the specially constructed Hilfiger playing field and join us as we hear from the designer himself about his new collection which celebrates the brand’s 30th anniversary in the industry.
Tommy Hilfiger told us how he continues to be inspired by sports, but this season he wanted to take the idea of a love story and sports story and combine the two. The result is a romantic and preppy fall wardrobe with plenty of retro college colours, scarves, sweater dresses and sporty jackets shown alongside some neat tailoring, sheer panels and luxe furs.
The runway was an American football playing field, complete with scoreboard and yard markings, with models emerging from a “locker room” entrance and an eye-catching wall of football helmets. Sports uniform stripes and player numbers were re-imagined in sophisticated capes, knits and skirts, even chic pleated shirt party dresses were given an athletic makeover. There were also lace up football details on shoulders and motifs on fur jackets. The designer hoped to satisfy his audience with a unique mix of casual, luxury and sports and took his bows after the show clutching an American flag emblazoned football helmet.
