Baseball’s long been credited as America’s favorite past time, but I’ve always been much more of a football fan myself. And apparently, I’m in good company as Tommy Hilfiger solidified his love for the sport when he brought New York Fashion Week to a football arena! The occasion may not have been a playoff or Superbowl game, but as each Fall 2015 look gained yards across the runway there was no question: it was a football lover’s dream!
Beyond debuting their varsity football inspired Fall 2015 Collection, the iconic brand Tommy Hilfiger was also celebrating 30 great years of all-American fashion for the guy and gal next door. Touchdown Tommy Hilfiger!
Tommy Hilfiger welcomed a legion of supporters, fashion mavens…and even football superstar Victor Cruz today, to kickoff the Fall 2015 collection and the next 30 years with a big bang. In attendance were fashion heavy weights like Olivia Palermo and Rachel Zoe, super bloggers Chiara Ferragni, Kristina Bazan and Susie Lau and pop star/fashionista Rita Ora.
The venue was abuzz with excitement so palpable it literally oozed right through my computer screen and it KILLED me to forfeit my invitation this season in favor of ‘rest’ and ‘recovery’ from back surgery *womp womp* If there’s one iconic American fashion house from my upbringing, it is without question Tommy Hilfiger. As a child of the 90’s, I feel like I’ve been there every step of the way as Tommy Hilfiger made their permanent mark on pop culture and fashion history. The brand represents the true American spirit and it was great to see so much enthusiasm and support show up for their 30th anniversary.
How was the fashion, you ask? Fantastic!
The Fall 2015 collection showed Tommy Hilfiger at his very best! Titled An American Love Story, the collection featured 50 classic varsity looks inspired by the 60’s and 70’s…and football was absolutely the MVP. From football-pleated skirts, stitched cuffs and booties…to patchwork and actual football charms, America’s favorite pig-skin was all over the collection.
Like all Hilfiger collections, red was a focal point of the color palette. More specifically? Deep red. Worn in head-to-toe oxblood looks (THOSE tights!!) or as an accent in collars or trims, that rich burgundy/marsala we all love took a leading role. However, there were a few punchy pieces that showed bold red on lambskin coats and varsity jerseys.
It’s not often I covet every single item from a collection, but Tommy Hilfiger’s Fall 2015 collection was spot-on perfect. I wasn’t kidding when I took to Twitter to say, “I want everything. #TommyFall15” because I do, I DO want everything. From the football wedges, to the varsity sweaters and jersey dresses, I’m ready to play some serious ball.
Big congratulations to full team at Tommy Hilfiger for a rich 30 year heritage that shows absolutely no signs of slowing down. Well done!
