Tommy Hilfiger hit the deck by transforming the Park Avenue Armory into the T.H. Atlantic, a massive vessel leaving no nautical motif out to sea in his fall collection. Set up like a giant, early 20th-century passenger liner under a starry night sky with VIPs seated on the deck, the show was a Tommy Hilfiger theme park. The takes on admiral jackets, stripes, sailor pants and tops and Thirties-era printed silk dresses with Peter Pan and sailor collars were executed with a high level of polish.

At Tommy Hilfiger we sat back and relaxed while the designer took us on a trip to the Carribean. He recreated the turquoise waters of Jamaica and the sand beaches of Mustique as the backdrop of his catwalk. So his tropically, hippy-ish dressed models walked along the beach. Hilfiger’s signature American sportswear perfectly worked together with the island life dress code. Billowing dresses sport lush flora and fauna patterns, while tropical hued patchwork and vibrant stripes energize sundresses and separates. Denim jackets and chinos are faded for a loved effect and accented with beaded tapes and whip stitched borders. The traditional cricket sweater reinvented in homespun crochet, polos done in netted mesh, and oxford shirts personalized with embroidered eyelet. Roomy beach totes and layered espadrilles, colorful jewelry to top it all off. The holiday theme might have been a bit overdone every now and then and we’re not sure if those knitted bikini’s will take off, but the designer’s aim to reach out to a new generation of globetrotters might just work out. Island hopping ended with a splash as all models paraded through the water for the show’s finale.

Tommy Hilfiger started his company in 1985. And in three decades he has established a serious company with all the Americana people love. In the past 30 years, Hilfiger has ridden the wave of designer stardom, always with a certain admirable confidence. Maybe that’s because he has been unfailing in his love of Americana in its many, many guises. To kick off his 30th anniversary celebration, he created a Fall collection inspired equally by American football and Love Story.
He staged the show at the Park Avenue Armory, which was transformed into a football stadium, with a Jumbotron capturing the fashion plays as models walked the runway in Ali MacGraw-inspired ’70s-prep silhouettes. They were wearing faux-fur stadium jackets with red-stitched toggles, wool cashmere ponchos, and several looks in bouclé plaid. The jacket of a shorts suit, for instance, was decorated with a knitted striped collar. Those athletic stripes added a sporty detail to just about every item, many of which were decorated with little pins and stars reminiscent of 1940s football paraphernalia.

For Hilfiger, this was just the beginning of a year of celebration.

After spring’s surf-and-sand theme, Tommy Hilfiger created another impressive set by transforming the Park Avenue Armory into a rugged wintry scene with mountains capped in fake snow, ski lodges and a wooden path as runway. This was an all-American scene, down to the first riffs of the soundtrack: Neil Young’s ‘Cinnamon Girl’.

Then came the parade of models in a variety of outfits that were fun and feisty in attitude: a striped plaid shirt with a matching ruffled skirt, a youthful shirtdress in a Technicolor check.

The outerwear was equally strong, delivering a cool spin to mountaineering staples. Even Hilfiger himself took his bow dressed in a vest, woodsy plaid shirt, jeans and hiking boots. His models, meanwhile, worked an utterly charming take on the motif — all plaids, puffers and teddy fur and pom-pom beanies.

Tommy Hilfiger turned the East-coast in a West-coast fantasy yesterday, with dunes, surfboards and a wooden boardwalk/runway. It was a perfect backdrop for his new take on Americana. The collection is about ‘Westcoasting,’ the inspiration of the California lifestyle from Melrose to Malibu. Surfing, skating, sporty, colorful, modern, beautiful.

There were color-blocked polo shirt-dresses and tops in leather. A skirt and a pair of pants appeared unzipped, as if the models had just emerged from a deep-diving expedition.The colors were fresh — aquas and viagra no perscription uk sun-kissed reds and oranges. Cool were the basketball tank dresses and a sweet Hawaiian-print shirt with olive-colored shorts.

For his fall 2013 women’s collection Tommy Hilfiger drew from the same inspiration as for his men’s show: Savoile Row meets Ivy League. A key inspiration was Tommy Nutter, the man who gave Savile Row a swinging Sixties profile, dressing all the cool people like Beatles, Mick Jagger and Twiggy types included. Nutter loved fabric mixes — mash-ups of plaids, checks, tartans and more. Hilfiger opened his show with a group of coats and separates in various combinations, the mannish tailoring often offset by Mod-like mini kilts. The outerwear continued with printed shearlings, ponyskins, bonded khaki mackintosh coats and cozy toppers made of teddy-bear fleece.

Tommy Hilfiger and his team brushed up two classic themes – safari and nautical – and made it into an upbeat and interesting collection. It was big and lively, with new  interpretations of sailcloth, stripes, and fisherman knits, among other staples of the seafaring look. The oversized red, white, and blue suit jackets, slouchy patchwork denim, and swinging tent dresses boasting sexy open backs looked refreshing and good. And many of the pieces benefited from unexpected finishes, such as the boxy navy-striped sailor’s tee, with a slick, stiff coating of wax. Yet for all the emphasis on the American palette, there were a great deal of washed-out sandy tones, too. They looked crisp and clean, though not obviously safari-esque, on cable knits and summery leathers.

Town meets country, seemed to be the theme of Tommy Hilfigers fall 2012 collection. And it proved to be a strong lineup of polished silhouettes with equestrian and military touches rendered in warm, fall hues like burgundy, brown and forest green.

There was lots of outerwear, including riding coats, a leather trenches, a double-breasted patent leather one and a houndstooth coat with vintage appeal. Cable knit was another point of interest, which Hilfiger translated as a print on a loose fitting dress. There were other riding motif prints (on silk halter dresses, blouses and skirts), as well as quilted suede jackets and skirts.

Tommy Hilfiger presented a preppy, but less loud spring-collection. No outsized florals like other designers showd, but men’swear checks and subtle shirting stripes. There were some bright motifs in orange and blue, pink and green in Mod-like cuts and sometimes with matching element like swimsuit, skirt, bag and shoes.

Swimwear was an important theme, but there were plenty of shirts- and T-dresses, bi-color raincoats and soft knits.

For coming winter Tommy Hilfiger managed to maintain his preppy touch, yet he took it to yet a wole other level. Wearing lots of deep, warm colors his models looked elegant and fresh.

Perhaps some looks (chalk suits, velvet blazers and tweed printed toggle coats) might appeared classic and boring at first sight, yet Hifiger gave every single outfit a fresh twist. His fully buttoned blouses were transparent, his tights had a stripe print, his knitwear was extra chunky and his(Burgundy) leather was super shiny.

The styling also felt new and modern. The floppy hats, the socks that peeked over the models’ boots and the high collars made up for a careless chic collection. And according to Hilfiger capes are going to be in fashion for at least one more season.

Though many looks might have had a very masculine appeal many women will be able to relate to this collection, as it was very wearable and sophisticated.
