Is it just me or do you guys see us heading back into the androgyny pattern here for autumn winter 2013? Queue Garbage singing, “boys in the girls room, girls in the men’s room.” This season, Tommy Hilfiger definitely showed off some fine tailoring usually reserved for men’s suits and shopping on Saville Row. You won’t hear us complaining. We love a gender mix up when it comes to tailoring.
Who remembers the days of having to go into the Army Navy store to pick up a true Navy Peacoat? Ok, maybe that was just my generation, but the whole idea of boxy tailored looks haven’t been around forever and they certainly haven’t been designed to the level that we are seeing today.
Tommy Hilfiger takes the tailored look and ads feminine touches such as soft shearling cuffs or quilted leather detailing. He layers the pieces together to create a boxy yet flattering shape and mixes prints and textures to give an updated look to otherwise classic designs. It’s all a magic show really, when it comes to putting together these looks, and Tommy Hilfiger has proven himself to be the master magician.
