Collaborations between two brands are always good for adding a little excitement into any industry and so with Tommy Hilfiger as one of the most iconic fashion houses to date teaming up with IT girl/ model of the moment Gigi Hadid, the anticipation escalated all over the world.
Not only did Tommy Hilfiger announce her as the brands global ambassador, but also handed her free reign to create a collection that best represents her casual chic style teamed with the brands all american style.
I first saw the collection at New York fashion week (see how i just said that like I was there, when what i meant was “after seeing the collection stream on my laptop in my onesie”) I had already selected my must have items, just like any fashionista does over fashion week (Because a girl should dream right?). The collection stays true to the brands signature style of nautical yet practical everyday wearability with Gigi pressing the right buttons to give it the edge her fans love her for. Some clear hero pieces include a military styled jacket and the seasons must have jacket; a cool ass bomber.
So now imagine my excitement when while in New York for work I receive an email asking me to pick some of my favourite pieces to style my way. Yeah, I definitely thought it was a joke, but later realised emails are a very serious thing so this was in fact the real deal. Here we are a few weeks later and I’m dressed in what I first picked while in an onesie during a live-stream , hope you agree with my selection!
The Capsule collection is exclusively available at the Tommy Hilfiger stores in Eastgate and V&A Waterfront
