Tommy Hilfiger’s Fall 2010 presentation was not only the last show of fashion week, but it was also the last show to be held at Bryant Park before the venue switched to the Lincoln Center next season.
Before the show started the photogs serenaded Fern Mallis (VP for IMG) singing along to “Sweet Caroline” which was very emotional for the woman who’s made fashion week what it is.
Once the Ed Westwick, Rosario Dawson, Penn Badgley and Hayden Panettiere took their seats the show began.
Tommy Hilfiger does preppy like no other, but this collection was title “Preppy With A Pop”
The ‘Pop’ came via mixing boyfriend tailoring with nipped-waist feminine pieces.
We were also presented with A-line skirts, turtleneck sweaters, cropped mohair pea coats a variety of eye popping colours and trench coats.
My favourite pieces were the sleevless trench coats, the double layer blazer and the cute forest green dress above, plus that winter white snood looks very cozy.
No wonder the cast of Gossip Girl were in the front row. These looks would not look out of place at NYU or Browns.
At the end of the presentation before he took his bow, Tommy Hilfiger thanked Fern Mallis and former CFDA president Stan Herman for their organisation of Fashion Week, then ended his speech saying “Now onward and upward to Lincoln Center” before Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind” played loudly over the speakers.
The perfect way to end Fashion Week.
