Tommy Hilfiger: Ready-to-wear AW16
Ever seen HMS Pinafore? We reckon Tommy Hilfiger has – although his versions, otherwise known as his autumn/winter 2016 show, was soundtracked by the Jackson five and dresses up in forties sequined tea-dresses, sweeping navy pea coats and officer’s capes, and sparkling prom tiaras. T.H. Atlantic, he called it – enforcing the quintessentially American roots of this Titanic (no pun) New York brand. It was a cavalcade of gold embellishment, silky tea-dresses, hi-waisted retro shorts – there was a touch of the sailor, but nothing macho, as if the wives of a long-lost sea vessel’s crew leapt on board looking for their man. We had a whale of a time, anyway.
