Tommy Hilfiger Resort Collection for Fashion show New York 2017

Sporty chic summed up Tommy Hilfiger’s resort collection, which featured bright colors drawn from the works of artist David Hockney. Preppy polo tops including a cool, short-sleeve rugby style in color-blocked leather featured athletic ribbed trim and stripes. Paired with silk wide-leg chinos or cropped jacquard flares and an assortment of printed sneakers, the looks captured a fresh tomboy attitude. Other knits and dresses featured more feminine touches: lace collars, mother-of-pearl buttons and allover daisy prints.

On the more casual side, Hilfiger riffed on Seventies nostalgia and American track and field ath-leisure with cheerleader sweaters and silk basketball shorts. If a bit teenage, the total package captured the peppy, optimistic side of adolescence not an ounce of angst or cynicism. Hilfiger spelled it out on jackets bearing “All you need is love” patches and a souvenir jacket embroidered with the phrase “Free Spirit.”
