Tommy Hilfiger Celebrates 25th Anniversary
NEW YORK, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ –
Monumental Thank You Party Follows Spring Fashion Show
Tommy Hilfiger showed his Spring 2011 collection at The Theater in The Tents at Lincoln Center last night to a packed house teeming with celebrities, family and friends.
Collection notes described the inspiration as twisted country club and the theme was reflected in the turnout in the front row, which had pop stars such as Jennifer Lopez, Bradley Cooper and Lenny Kravitz mixed among a strong showing of New York’s social set.
Celebrating its twenty-five year heritage, the collection offered more than a touch of prep with an added twist reflected by an audacious use of color, mixed patterns and proportions.
Crowd favorites included pleated tennis skirts, a sequined navy blazer, bandeau tops and back-baring georgette gowns. The menswear seemed destined for the neo-preppy rocker who considers seersucker short suits and leopard loafers a way of life.
Following the show, Tommy thanked his guests in epic style with a giant bash at The Metropolitan Opera. Rows of blazer-clad young men lined the entrance which featured a sky high, neon lit display of the designer’s initials. Just inside the opera house a large topiary flag recalled the green hedge inspiration that dominated the show.
DJ Paul Sevigny got the crowd going, but it was the live performance by THE STROKES that had every balcony of the iconic venue filled with guests including Christina Hendricks, Neil Patrick Harris, Ed Westwick, Jessica Szohr, Jeremy Piven, Rumer Willis, Rebecca Romijn, Jason Lewis, Olivia Palermo and Amanda Hearst.
