Tommy Hilfiger loves Rock ‘n’ Roll, so put another dime in the jukebox baby.
In Manhattan’s Park Avenue Armory, the designer suggested a music festival-inspired Spring 2015 collection, setting the mood with fake flowers and tunes by Jimmy Hendrix and the Rolling Stones.
The sentiment translated on the runway as well, with Georgia May Jagger walking the show, and deliberate sartorial references to an era that tested the limits of polyester leisurewear. Baby-doll dresses, slouchy denim patchwork vests, bohemian floor-length dresses, and crochet swimwear were some of Hilfiger’s trippiest encounters yet.
At moments, the collection took unexpected risks, including a striped burgundy cape and star-patterned knit cardigan, at least by the standards of Hilfiger, which sometimes turned a bit too elaborate. Ultimately, although we appreciated the “peace and love” Hilfiger was offering up for his Spring 2015 season, it would have been far more interesting to see a less literal interpretation of the era.
