In a word? Thrilling. In more words—Tommy Hilfiger’s Fall 2013 collection is the perfect creative expression of American style combined with British tradition. They’ve named the collection “Saville Row meets Ivy League,” but the totality of the collection is far more exciting than those generally anodyne subjects. Actually, Hilfiger took cues from Tommy Nutter—a one time Saville Row enfant terrible who shook things up a bit during the days of the Beatles and the Stones. The result is one of the most imaginative uses of classic British patterns that have ever walked the New York runway.
Who cares if you can't build a bridge form New York to London when you can just line a Prince of Wales check overcoat in some shearling.
A marvelous play on inside out, Prince of Wales Check makes ample use of it's new found home as lining.
Psychedelic in First Class.
All of the sudden, ever other attempt at remaking this classic jacket looks dull and boring.
All Argyle, all houndstooth, all statement.
