In collaboration with model and style icon Gigi Hadid, Tommy Hilfiger launched ‘see now, buy now’ collection at New York Fashion Week, which means items are readily available for purchase. Hilfiger added a street-wear inspired touch to his signature of nautical themed clothing for the very first time. In line with the nautical theme, the pieces largely consisted of navy blue, red and white with a touch of black and metallic gold. Building on the autumn/winter collection, Hilfiger added preppy logoed tracksuits, revealing the Hilfiger logo on the waistband, alongside various oversized pieces such as chunky knit jumpers, slouchy hoodies, basketball jerseys and silk bomber jackets.
Some of the pieces were extremely oversized and were worn as dresses and styled with sexy thigh-high socks and chunky buckle boots. These sporty pieces were teamed with high-waisted trousers with brass-button detail, bandana neck-scarves, military coats and long-line faux-fur coats to give the collection a “nautical meets street” feel, as Hilfiger intended. Hadid herself opened up the show wearing tight leather trousers, a navy and white military jacket with button detail, chunky buckle boots and a bandana neck-scarf. The styling of this collection will certainly give tomboys new ideas on how to style such sporty pieces.
