They say, every collection speaks of a history! One that it is inspired from and the ones that it would inspire in the future. And renowned designer Tommy Hilfiger’s Fall 2013 Men’s Collection, falls under the same bracket as it took inspiration from history with a rock n’ roll irreverence in the spirit of Tommy Nutter, sixties London’s go-to tailor who counted The Beatles and Mick Jagger among his clients.
For a collection that focused on Ivy League meeting Savile Row the historic Park Avenue Armory was transformed into a British boarding school library – a perfect fit for this collection. The collection comprised of sharply tailored single- and double-breasted suits, melton bonded mackintosh car coats and cropped shearling jackets with leather details a palette of navy-blue, rich claret, khaki, and ivory.
College scarves add a youthful twist to trad toppers and inspire intricate insets that run down the back of outerwear to create a graphic impact. Similarly, hybrid penny loafer boots and color-blocked brogues add a Mod touch to the neat silhouette.
