FALL 2013 WOMEN’S COLLECTION: SAVILE ROW MEETS IVY LEAGUE
Savile Row meets Ivy League in Tommy Hilfiger’s Fall 2013 Women’s collection, which combines a preppy collegiate aesthetic with an irreverent take on British sartorial tradition. In the spirit of Tommy Nutter, iconic 1960s London tailor, styles combine hints of Mod attitude with menswear-inspired tailoring.
The authentic collegiate wardrobe is given new life through innovative detailing and sartorial precision. Iconic menswear references are reinterpreted in custom fabrics: Prince of Wales check in signature red, white and blue, magnified pin-stripes, and argyle layered over black-and-white houndstooth – all in a mix of scales. College scarves inspire intricate insets that run over outerwear to create a graphic impact from front to back. Classics receive an unexpected twist: the cable-knit sweater bonded to leather establishes the new twin set, and a sporty pea coat is cut from Steiff fabric. The penny loafer becomes a leather knee-high boot – the modern co-ed’s interpretation of the classic knee-sock. Hemlines are raised with youthful skirts inspired by traditional kilts. Topped with glen plaid fedoras and knit caps, the collection writes the book on a new language of sartorial prep.
