New York: Tommy Hilfiger changed things up a bit for F/W 11 – pulling his menswear off of the runway and showing a refreshing new look in a presentation at one of New York’s current hot spots, The Lion. With its dark mahogany walls, patchwork Persian rugs and walls full of regal portraits, the setting suggested a new day for the brand’s colorful take on preppy. In a collection inspired by a fusion of indie rock rebellion and old world charm, Hilfiger (and new consultant for the men’s collection, designer Simon Spurr) set forth on a youthful journey of decidedly Mod proportions and contemporary details. Who said preppy had to be stuffy?
