NYFW: Tommy Hilfiger S/S 2017

For Tommy Hilfiger’s Spring/Summer 2017, nods to ’70s sportif and The Ivy League are pretty much a staple, but silhouettes have changed being a bit more slouchy, proportions are different and the details reveal new creative possibilities. Prints are the cornerstone. Floral, bandana and linear patterns are shown in unexpected variations that feel fresh as plays on patchwork inform shapes and add graphic zip. Suiting and pajamas are both spontaneous and sartorial, surpassing conventional matched sets with the addition of tropical flora or shorts as partners. Outerwear takes a casual approach in sporty shapes such as the pullover and barracuda, a selvedge denim jacket is cropped for newness while giving a cursory salute to workwear. Knits are familiar in frame but inventive in their construction. Shirting and chinos, both foundations of the Hilfiger vocabulary, are cut oversized with pieced fabrics and the addition of knitted polo collars or side stripes impart a contemporary simplicity in their structure. Each outfit is played up with accessories such as bucket hats, leather sport totes and covetable retro-infused sneakers and rope trimmed slides.

Overall such a beautiful and wearable collection that works with the modern man.
