TOMMY HILFIGER SS2014 Womenswear Collection

From sunrise surfing to sundown clambakes, Tommy Hilfiger’s SS2014 Womenswear collection <Westcoasting> is inspired by a Californian road trip adventure. Whether it’s soaking up the desert sun in Palm Springs, enjoying seaside breezes in Monterey or surfing in Santa Barbara, celebrate the best of the west coast lifestyle: palm trees, orange groves, sparkling waters and rugged canyons. The collection takes its inspiration from California’s diverse landscape, embracing bright colors, bold patterns and versatile styles.

The first stop in the road trip is <Monterey> where coastal vistas meet a turquoise ocean and picturesque boardwalk. The fashion group gives a wink to a modern nautical style, with principal tones in tomato red, classic white and core navy. The look embraces pattern on pattern, denim on denim, and no shortage of graphics. Feminine polka dots combine with head-to-toe stripes, gingham, windowpane plaid or marine-inspired prints: it’s boats, starfish and seahorses a plenty. As early spring air can be chilly, keep warm in a statement anorak, crewneck sweatshirt or jersey blazer complete with a striped lining paired effortlessly with slim-fit colored chinos or ankle-length pants. Balancing the all-American red, white and blue tones are grounding accents of khaki and lemon tonic.   

Heading south to <Palm Springs>, the second fashion group embraces sun-drenched desert tones combined with vibrant colors. Miami blue offsets aqua sky, while pop coral pairs with diva pink. Military-inspired accents are seen in cameo rose, pebble, olive and pale taupe, offsetting the bright feminine hues with a masculine touch. Tonal color-blocked pieces are key – including a statement trench coat, polo shirt and blouses – as are vintage-inspired geometric graphic prints. Washed out pigments add depth to seamlines, while gold metal trims add a touch of Palm Springs dazzle. For a casual daytime look, pair desert-wash pants with spring leather or textured sweaters; when the sun sets, a geo print blouse, ankle-length pant, or shirt-dress transition smoothly from day to night.  

For the final stop on our whirlwind road trip, we travel west to <Santa Barbara> where ethnic prints, indigo tones and head-to-toe white make their own unique statements. It’s heather blues, dusty olive and beluga green, offset by bright lemon tonic. Feminine details are seen throughout, from eyelet and lace to loosely knit sweaters. In the hot summer sun, linen and cotton blends are lightweight and breezy. Indulge primitive instincts in tonal animal print or ikat, seen on maxi dresses, shirts and blazers. Alternatively, keep cool in textured white on white, from t-shirt dresses to full pleated skirts. For sundown cocktails or boardwalk strolls, a reinterpreted summer suit pairs an unlined jacket with shorts.
