MY BOYFRIEND’S A ROCK STAR
New York: Tommy Hilfiger always mixes preppy with rock ‘n’ roll ingredients in his collections, but this season’s recipe yielded especially appealing results. Specifically inspired by rocker girlfriends of the 70s, the collection crossed the swagger of the decade’s menswear with the kinds of femme-bohemian styles that might have been worn by Pattie Boyd or Marianne Faithful. Trompe l’oeil herringbone was printed onto shearling outerwear and silk blouses, and satin-piped paisley-printed men’s pajamas looked fancy-cool. Even preppy ribbon trims and printed-on borders were interpreted in a hip way, accenting sharp silhouettes and dressy scarf motifs.
