Tommy Hilfiger Fall 2009 Men's and Women's Collection




Quintessentially Fifth Avenue

"Inspired by Fifth Avenue- it is aspirational yet affordable, inspirational yet attainable."

-Tommy Hilfiger

Introducing the Tommy Hilfiger Fall 2009 collection, which pays homage to Fifth Avenue, the iconic thoroughfare where luxury meets sensibility. Coinciding with the Fall 2009 opening of the brand's Fifth Avenue flagship, built to house the world of Tommy including the complete runway line, the collection offers a reprieve from the times by balancing optimism with reality. Reflecting the personal style of the international set, it expresses the Tommy Hilfiger philosophy of democratic dressing.

Proving that style is about quality, not expense, the women's line is marked by beautiful execution and striking fabrics. Mixing the refined with the rebellious, there is an uninhibited love affair with color- camels and khakis offset by just a hint of black and shades of pink. The collection revives some of the classics you love- a camelhair coat paired with classic denim-punctuated by fresh tailoring and precision. A gray flannel tuxedo is coupled with a pink lamé top, a tailored dress with a fluidly draped back. There is a hint of scrappy sophistication in a suede dress, a shearling jacket and shoulder bags in supple leather. Cocktail dresses use a cut-out effect to strategically expose skin in the sexiest areas of a woman's body, already highlighted by deep brimmed hats and infinity belts. Stacked heels, gatored pumps, double monk strap loafers and boots without a closure slip on and off as a reminder of the essential ease of the look.

If the women's line is born out of a high-low personal style that has been passed down through the generations, the menswear conjures a similar mix; these are clothes designed for a place in which worlds collide and unify. The collection channels the charm and commanding magnetism of a true gentleman, one who is not afraid to pair a fuchsia turtleneck with a bomber jacket. It is investment dressing reinvigorated with a fresh mix of double and single-breasted suits, wide-leg pants, cashmere turtlenecks and houndstooth trenches. Silhouettes are both full and tailored, intended to take a man through every aspect of his day. The Hilfiger man has an American practicality but a global sophistication.
