Tommy Hilfiger’s Spring Summr 2016 collection was the highlight of Day 5 at New York Fashion Week. The collection ‘ Island Life’ was Caribbean inspired and featured lots of free-spirited, multi-colored ensembles that made us want to take a flight to an exotic tropical island and take a vacation!
It’s like a string bikini, but with lattice beaded-strings that make it a bikini-swimsuit-thingie! Plus the crochet hat and that beaded necklace. And check out those flowery espadrilles. And Gigi Hadid shows some underboob in that skimpy bikini!
The collection’s color palette was as tropical as it can be. The hues were bright reds, yellow, sky blue, green and brown. Multi-colored pieces included print maxi dresses, jackets and bikinis, mesh shirts and shirt-dresses. The outfits were beautifully accessioned with beaded necklaces and earrings, crochet bucket hats, espadrilles and slip-ons, layered bracelets and floral and crochet bucket bags. The pieces had floral patterns and multi-colored stripes.
The makeup was clean, minimal with tan contouring and nude lip and eye color and focus on dewey skin. It gave a fresh, vacation-type beauty look! Check out the sexy sisters as they walk the ramp/ shallow pool in their cheeky bikinis!
Some of my favorite looks from the collection included Gigi’s red crochet top maxi dress, a sky-blue striped shirt-dress with floral motifs and jacket, a navy crochet crop top with striped slim pants, a crochet red and yellow striped dress with matching hat. My favorite ensemble was a multi-colored striped ankle-length dress with thigh-grazing slits and white shoes. So vacation-ey and bright, yet wearable!
