Tommy Hilfiger Fall-Winter 2013-2014 RTW Fashion Show



Mood/style:
Savile Row meets Ivy League” is how the press notes described Tommy Hilfiger’s slick fall collection. In a way, it was a greatest hits show, merging some of the most iconic staples from British sartorial history with classic Hilfiger ideas. 

The two worlds blended seamlessly. Take the opening look: a sharp shirt dress worn under a double-breasted overcoat in Prince of Wales check and styled with knee-high loafer boots. It referenced both England’s rich history of men’s tailoring and Hilfiger’s trademark preppy aesthetic. About nine outfits later, the Mod references began to creep in, with subtle A-line shapes that were a little bit swinging Sixties, and a little bit posh, public school girl. Each ensemble that followed, refined this idea of an English spin on preppy dressing even further creating the kind of clear, singular and sellable vision that comes from decades in the business. Speaking of the retail floor, Hilfiger’s excellent range of outerwear most likely won’t sit there for long. He created a coat and jacket for practically every age group and occasion: from a plaid mack coat for the daily winter commute to work to a series of chunky, shearling pea coats that would be perfect for, you guessed it, the first day of school
