Tommy Hilfiger sent his spring/summer 2012 collection down the New York Fashion Week runway on September 12, 2011, bringing a “preppy” flair to the fashion world, as well as demonstrating the power of a bold mix of colors. The New York designer flooded the catwalk with mixed textures, a harmonious blend of delicate monochrome pieces and strong motifs and unexpected assembled looks, such as a warm sweater thrown over a swimsuit, which showed how easily fashion can fit into everyday life.
Marking his 25th anniversary collection, Tommy Hilfiger brings ultra-versatile, extremely wearable and stylish ensembles, letting fashionizers benefit from both monochrome outfits, as well as cool color combos. The abundance of strong and subtle shades allow you to experiment with endless options, until you adopt the style more close to your heart. Just explore and mix and match, as self-expression in fashion is the easiest path to making strong statement!
For the spring 2012 season, Tommy Hilfiger has opted for interesting and feminine patterns that will make you instantly stand out, without looking eccentric. There is a strong connection between “homage to the 60s” and “a Technicolor interpretation of the prep classics” about the latest Tommy Hilfiger spring 2012 collection, which skillfully unites casual and elegant motifs. Using subtle accessories to finalize the looks, Tommy Hilfiger tries to lay the stress on the amazing coloration and the perfect cuts that grab all the attention.
Boldly colored outfits were toned down with monochrome pieces, balancing the things and making the collection appear ideal. Shying away from bold floral motifs, the designer gave preference to stylish military camouflage color mixes, cool stripes, colorful plaids as well as color blocks. Gorgeous retro vibe jumpsuits, long, slinky silk jersey gowns with cutouts and bow-ties at the back, oversized cricket sweaters, stylish jackets, adorable dresses, stylish trousers dominated the runway in vibrant hues of baby and dark blue, yellow, orange, purple, red, soft pink wine and navy. All in all, the collection was endowed with a very down-to-earth, wearable feel, appealing to a large group of voguish fashionizers.
