fall menswear collection, new york: tommy hilfiger

classical style in sophisticated tones were seen from the FW11 tommy hilfiger collection in new york this fall. turtle necks, which are definitely a trend for the coming FW11/12 season were a high light of the hilfiger collection this season, along with elements of classic american tailoring. since being purchased by van heusen last year, i wasnt sure what to expect this season from this label. but to my surprise, undisturbed, the concepts reflect the signature style that tommy himself has made notable through campaigns & collections of the past. while i generally like the collection, i feel that little to nothing about what is show is really that outstanding or even exciting. i do commend the consistency in vision, through design & think many consumers will be pleased with this collection, once it hits retail. i expect a model packed campaign that plays on a bit of athleticism & handsome style- elements which have been created from the label in the past. maroon, grey, navy, camel toned coats & knitwear are all seen with the solid collection. great direction, great follow up from last season & all looks are appropriate for the fall.

spring collections: elie tahari, new york

the elie tahari SS11 collection opened with a soft, airy palette & progressive to oceanic blues, ending on a note of depth in black. belted waists & spots of metallic neutrals were all seen on the runway as a few shots of yellow were also seen. translated clearly each season is the elie tahari style signature. denim, leather, swimsuits, casual looks & office attire options were all presented this season & the collection was exceptionally strong. with a great sensibility to this season’s trend, style & direction were both executed amazingly this season. overall, a fair collection & solid showing in contrast to other collections.

pre-fall collections: donna karan

donna karan supplies us with her signature draping & body concious designs. karan is known for creating clothes that hide the ‘trouble spots’ & in this collection she does so ever so elegantly. the collection hosts, for the most part, a darker palette with two cameo’s of pear & kiwi colored metallics. the design signature seen in any donna karan collection is undeniable. as in past collections, karan continues to produce refinement.
