TOMMYxGIGI A/W 2016 Capsule Collection

7:24 PM

Gigi and Tommy Hilfiger walking in the show finale.

When Gigi revealed she was working on a capsule collection with Tommy Hilfiger I was over the moon. I think she's very good at what she does and Gigi's always promoted a healthy lifestyle which I think is an important thing for her to do as a model. On Instagram she's been teasing her followers (including me!) with pictures of the collection and I just couldn't wait until fashion week to finally see everything. I can honestly say this was one of the smartest collaborations at fashion week (besides Alexander Wang and Adidas). Tommy's designs clash with Gigi's aesthetic which is very important for a capsule collection. Gigi is a true Tommy girl. 

The looks below are some of my favourite picks from this collection:

Look 1
Look 2
Look 5
Look 6
Look 10
Look 12
Look 17
Look 18
Look 30
Look 32
Look 34
The collection contained simplistic or as I call them "Tommy colours", navy, brown, black, white and red. It's clearly meant to attract younger audience which is not surprising, but I definitely think there are some timeless pieces in his collection. I think both the navy and the brown coat are staple winter pieces you'll want in your closet. My absolute favourite piece is the very first jacket Gigi walked out in, I think it's such a statement piece and it has a beautiful structure. Also I love the styling statement piece of putting a bandanna around every model's neck, it gave every look a festival vibe. I think what's very special about this line is, every single one of the outfits that came down the runway presented a Gigi look. Gigi as a casual, sporty, festival and even the "model off duty" look.
And where best to present this line but in a fun carnival environment surrounded with not only press and buyers but also Gigi's friends and fans who waited so long for this collection.
