Tommy Hilfiger - Spring 2011 - Review

Over the past quarter of a century, Tommy Hilfiger has achieved design celebrity, fallen into obscurity, re-invented himself, and just this year, been acquired by one of the largest retail companies in the world, Phillips-Van Heusen Corporation, for $3 Billion. 25 years later and Tommy Hilfiger is still the king of preppy Americana with a twist, and this collection is no exception.

Color was center stage in this collection that would look equally at home in William's Town as it would in the West Village. A classic khaki suit was paired with a pink sweater, a candy green belt, purple shoes, and leopard loafers, while a linen utility shirt was styled with salmon pants, a yellow belt and socks, and blue dress shoes. There were Tommy classics in the form of a peacoat, khakis, and a trench, but they were made all the more exciting when paired with these outlandish hues.

What will remain throughout every collection that Tommy Hilfiger designs is his innate ability to produce wearable clothes. Spring 2011 shows Hilfiger's ability to push his man to his preppy limits.
