New York: Tommy Hilfiger kicked-off its 30th anniversary with an homage to American sportswear. Known for creating intricate sets and productions, this season did not disappoint with one of the most complex runway shows you could imagine, a football stadium. The space had everything from rows of bleachers to an astro-turf football field, scoreboard, and even wall of fame helmet display, personalized with the models names. Ali MacGraw inspired the collection with iconic sportswear styles from the late sixties and early seventies personifying a game day spirit. Kick pleat skirts and dresses were paired with faux fur bombers and stadium coats. Collegiate heritage was seen throughout with border stripe embroideries, patches and insignia, varsity cardigans, and scholar scarves. Footwear included wedge heel football booties, resembling football cleats, and Mary Janes worn with ribbed tights and knee-high socks. The color palette was true Tommy Hilfiger Americana with navy, burgundy, ivory, and gold anchoring the collection. –Jaclyn Jones
