Iconic Designer Teams Up With American Sweetheart to Launch New Clothing Line

Posted: Updated:

(Hawaii News Now) - For over 25 years, Tommy Hilfiger has brought classic, cool, American apparel to consumers around the world. Under Hilfiger's guidance, vision and leadership as Principal Designer, The Tommy Hilfiger Group has become one of very few globally recognized designer brands offering a wide range of American-inspired apparel and accessories.

Along with Macy's, Tommy Hilfiger is pleased to introduce "To Tommy, From Zooey," a capsule collection of dresses and accessories designed by actress, musician and style icon Zooey Deschanel and iconic American designer Tommy Hilfiger. The collection will be available beginning mid-April 2014 first at Macy's and on macys.com, and subsequently in select Tommy Hilfiger stores in North America, Europe, Mexico and Japan. It will also be available on tommy.com in those markets. 

Together, the duo created a spirited collection in a signature Tommy palette of red, white and blue. The flattering silhouettes range from classic coat and shirtdresses to specialty peek-a-boo styles, with prints hidden inside the pleats. Crisp, mod-shapes are combined with nautical touches—creating a look Deschanel calls "Modical." Bright and upbeat, "To Tommy, From Zooey," captures the buoyant attitude of the sixties, the decade in which Hilfiger made his fashion debut and from which Deschanel borrows her doe-eyed look. 

All the dresses in the collection have the short hems first made famous and fashionable by iconic models of the era like Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton and favored by the actress herself. Color-blocking adds graphic impact to the line-up, made with a mix of classic materials, like pique and oxford cloth, modish prints, silks and linens. The summery feeling that breezes through the "To Tommy, From Zooey" collection reflects the optimism and youthful spirit at the heart of the iconic brand, celebrated for its eccentric authenticity and irreverent take on prep.

The "To Tommy, From Zooey" collection includes a total of 16 dresses that range in price from $98 to $199. A selection of 14 dresses from the capsule will be available in 200 Macy's stores starting April 14. The complete collection will launch on tommy.com and in Tommy Hilfiger anchor and specialty stores in North America, Europe, Mexico and Japan on April 21. A selection of jewelry and handbags designed by Zooey will be exclusively available at select Tommy Hilfiger anchor stores and on tommy.com.
