Another beach-inspired collection is on the runway of New York Fashion Week, this time introduced by Tommy Hilfiger. “The collection is surf-inspired, it’s from the West Coast, it’s from L.A., it’s from Malibu. It’s Melrose to Malibu. It’s about scuba, it’s about neoprene, it’s about vintage but brought modern, it’s silk-bowing shirts, it’s about pajama-type pants, about very cool hoodies or jackets but it’s very relaxed” says Tommy Hilfiger, “It’s inspired by my love for Southern California, surfing, skating, sporty lifestyle”. Nothing else is necessary to describe the Tommy Hilfiger spring/summer 2014 collection.
Neoprene jackets combined with cute-looking mini-length skirts and shorts are the main focus of the Tommy Hilfiger spring/summer 2014 collection. The color combinations chosen in shades of coral, sea blue and greyish blue overtones are especially emphasized by some graphical representations and motives. Shorts-top-jacket grouping is simply awe-inspiring with extremely apt color and shape combinations.
Bandeau-type motives and pajama pants are also present in this colorful sea story followed by stripy drives and ideas. Another interesting side of the assortment is the abundance of the khaki garments applied to some blends appearing as jackets, pants, etc. The brownish belts are small yet great finalizing details for those khaki interpretations. The play of khaki tones with blue and red introduced within floral motives is like an irreplaceable part of this line.
Another interesting aspect of the Tommy Hilfiger spring/summer 2014 collection is the color play applied to neoprene, which as Tommy Hilfiger says, is one of the accents of this collection. Finally, the coast effect of the collection is more vividly demonstrated by the decorative elements of the runway: the sand, the surf-desks and so on.
Watching the glamorous models walk on the runway and looking at the colors of the outfits they wear, it’s like you’re watching a bright sunset on the beach and simply don’t want the sun go down today.
