I have mixed emotions about the Tommy Hilfiger show this year. On one hand, the garments are more luxurious than ever and Tommy truly does take preppy to a new level. However, I think initially I was a bit surprised by what I saw on the catwalk. Perhaps it was simply because this was not the Tommy I have been familar with all these years (we won’t get into my issue in accepting change right now). In all honesty, after the initial skepticism, I was sold on the whole concept. This is a collection where the devil really is in the details: the toggles, the piping, the perfectly placed pockets, the drawstrings. It’s all about seeing the garment as a mixture of a lot of wonderful little pieces of prep that come together to form a new preppy style entirely.
