New York: Officially closing out New York Fashion Week, as well as being the last show ever to take place at Bryant Park, Tommy Hilfiger was the perfect choice for the Big Apple’s send off. Over the years, the designer has become known for colorful American classics with a sugary dose of playfulness. Before his F/W 10 show began, beloved (if not a bit cheesy) American pop music from the last three decades played, hinting at the nostalgic but tasteful looks about to come down the runway. Hilfiger always prides himself on giving his customer casualwear that feels like luxury, and he certainly accomplished that for this particular collection. The quintessential wardrobe pieces for any Trad were present: a shawl collar varsity sweater, three-piece suit, slim-fitting trench coat, chinos and a proper formal look. After the show was over, Hilfiger announced to the crowd, “It’s onward and upward to Lincoln Center,” officially putting an end to another New York era.
