Nobody portrays NY personality like Tommy does. He’s the master of embracing the powerful American culture and highlighting the deeply varied population of his beloved New York. In this occasion, alongside TV star Zendaya, brought back the funny and noisy 70s in Harlem. The show was an epic party where blues and latin vibes put everyone to dance.
After two year collaborating, Zendaya and Tommy ended their professional relationship with an outstanding show where everyone left with a smile. The ability of the American designer to capture NY’s most authentic identity is unparalleled. Under the name of Tommynow, Hilfiger held a jam session where trumpets and drums led the way. The show took place in the emblematic Apollo Theater, where iconic artists like Michael Jackson or Aretha Franklin grew their careers. Thanks Zendaya (@zendaya)for the venue’s election.
An absolute majority of black models of all ages and sizes walked the runway with an incredible festive vibe, wearing with glamour and determination the proposals for the upcoming Fall. Flare pants, massive hats and shades, invasive polka dots printed all over several looks, python pattern dresses and leather pants, houndstooth printed coats and scarves, glowing velvet sartorial pieces and a clear bet on a neutral palette, with some burgundy additional designs to light up the elegance of this last collaboration for Zendaya with TH, were the perfect goodbye for a very productive alliance.
Cadillacs, big belts to enhance the models’ curves, Alton Mason dancing in the middle of the place dressed in python print from head to toes, a bunch of “neighbors” cheering up the environment and above all, a celebration of Harlem and the 70s, probably one of the most influential places and eras in the fashion history. Ask Dapper Dan.
Winnie Harlow, Ashley Graham and Alton Mason himself walked in front of celebs like the Hadid sisters, Barbie Ferreira (@barbieferreira) and Hunter Schafer (@hunterschafer) from Euphoria (like Zendaya), Olivia Palermo (@oliviapalermo) or Pose’s and Calvin Klein’s star Indya Moore (@indyamoore).
The message of inclusivity, diversity, femininity in all its versions and the purest New Yorker identity are going to be one of the killer options for this soon to come Autumn thanks to Tommy Hilfiger (@tommyhilfiger) and Zendaya’s farewell as job partners, wiggling to Curtis Mayfield’s “Move on up”.
Party like it’s the 70s.
