Runway Report: Tommy Hilfiger Fall 2016 RTW

ALL ABOARD! Tommy Hilfiger literally took us aboard the deck of the T.H. Atlantic for his Fall 2016 Ready-to-Wear collection. I always love seeing Tommy Hilfiger's runway shows as he shoes such wearable stuff in such a grand way. Only big European brands like Chanel, Dior, and Louis Vuitton tend to put on spectacle type shows where there are dramatic sets and I love that Tommy brings that to New York Fashion Week, its more of a theatrical production than just a fashion show. The 30's and 40's were the grounding points in most of the collection. Tommy wanted this collection to look like a modern girl found her grandmothers vintage silk dress and threw her sparkly on-trend loafers on and grabbed her puffy coat and walked out the door, and he made that vision come true through each look. There was a distinct breakup of the classic brought through the set and the more modern with Michael Jackson hits Don't Stop Till You Get Enough, Off The Wall, Rock With You, & Get On The Floor on the soundtrack, blending the ideas that were construed with the styling of the clothes. I honestly don't think that there was a single look that I actually didn't like. Everything about Tommy was absolute perfection. My favorite look from the collection was the closing look a gold sequined 40's inspired sailor dress modeled by superstar Gigi Hadid. I am actually really hoping that Tommy turns that gold sequined cocktail dress into a gown for the Met Ball and has someone like Jourdan Dunn or Claire Danes rock it on the red carpet. While I can see this being on the back of every flirty and cool girl in street style I can also picture Naomi Watts, Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Rihanna, Marion Cotillard, Zooey Deschanel, Blake Lively, Anna Kendrick, Dakota Fanning, Sarah Hyland, Shailene Woodley, Suki Waterhouse, Cate Blanchett, Rita Ora, Jessica Chastain, Diane Kruger, Carey Mulligan, & Dakota Johnson rocking on different red carpets.
