With a perfect snowy day as the set and a wintery vibe as the atmosphere, Tommy Hilfiger presented a collection inspired by the great American outdoors. With “Cinnamon Girl” as the soundtrack, models such as Hanne Gaby Odiele, Jourdan Dunn, Xia Wen Ju among others rocked the fall ready-to-wear 2014 runway while walking on a wooden floorboard and among ski chalets, snow powder and chair lifts.
Taking advantage of the scenery’s low temperatures, the designer delivered a collection full of cozy and sophisticated looks. He achieved the perfect line for the winter season with multicolored striped knit wool ponchos, velvet sweatshirts and turtleneck dresses.
Always classic and faithful to the brand’s DNA, the color palette showed red, ivory, navy and gray tones. Western details with the sophistication of today’s young and adventurous women were present throughout the runway through utility denim pants, fig hiking wedges, brown cowboy booties and an unpredictable raw denim velvet skirt. Always creative, Hilfiger upgraded the final results of every piece with patterns such as tartans, saturated plaids and stunning jacquard.
Spontaneous but understated, the designer splashed a bohemian sensibility with Technicolor plaids, navy black mohair dresses and silk blouses. Eclectic and effortless, the suede boyfriend puffer vests and teddy-fur bomber jackets were the signature of the outerwear collection. But it’s the leather totes and the zip-in wedge sneakers what completes the looks.
With the brand’s preppy touch, this collection was clearly designed for the adventurous and classic yet sophisticated women in mind.
