Tommy Hilfiger along with Esquire Magazine celebrated the fall 2010 collection from the definitive American sportswear label at their relatively new global flagship Fifth Avenue store. The name of the collection “preppy with a pop” is definitely befitting of the line. With the help of designer Peter Som, the line is a refreshing spin on traditional Hilfiger.
Sanjeet, a manager in the flagship store, is excited about the “fashionable American brand’s” new collection because they have incorporated “touches of British style with the tweeds” and the cuts on the pants and jackets. Celebrity stylist Keino Benjamin described it as “vintage preppy with a soft twist.” “I love the colors (especially) red (which) is his main color symbolizing the American flag.” Mr Benjamin would love if Tommy would develop a slim line for men; apparently the fits aren’t slim enough for him. Many guest at the event describe the new collection as being very English boarding school with an edge; think of the young Princes of Wales- William or Harry.
Let’s start with his basics: Hilfiger has a great assortment of classic crew and v-neck sweaters in multiple colors, gingham button down shirts with appliqué on the sleeves, sailor long sleeve t-shirts & sweaters and winter coats with fur trimmed collar’s. Now on to the fabulous: my most have pieces: love both the ankle and over the knee duck boots, the ruffle silk blouse with striped vest (classic), the male and female conductor jackets and the Rebecca viole skirt a perfect day to night piece.
