Town and Country
The Tommy Hilfiger Fall 2012 women’s collection is inspired by the preppy sporting life reconsidered with city sophistication. She is as much at ease at the hunt club as she is on Park Avenue. Championing classic looks with a modern spirit, versatility is key with A-line, mod shapes in rich colors and fabrics.
The coat becomes her ultimate fall go-to, inspiring dresses, suiting and cocktail wear. Iconic shapes such as the pea coat and trench coat are renewed in printed shearling, bonded leather and Melton wool with a nod to a 60s military influence. Glen plaid and houndstooth are given a twist in unexpected scales and youthful silhouettes, while quilted suede offers a luxurious new take on the hunting suit. Menswear patterns are reinterpreted in silk dresses with riding and cable knit prints and pleated backs. Heritage colors- Burgundy, Midnight Navy and Caramel- carry throughout, as do penny loafer inspired riding boots. Evening is grounded in classic silhouettes redone with tuxedo and metallic details. All in, it is a collection made for the woman who moves seamlessly between town and country.
