Fashion enthusiasts and industry experts alike awaited Tommy Hilfiger's new collection at New York Fashion Week with bated breath, but no one expected what the designer brought to the runway, according to the Los Angeles Times.
After straying from the cliche preppy look for years, Hilfiger made a comeback with his casual club look at a small showing in the West Village. For the upcoming spring and summer seasons, the designer showcased pieces that included bold primary colors and an unexpected indie edge.
The "twisted country club" collection struck a chord with designers and fashionistas who could not have predicted cashmere vests and khakis. Hilfiger also attempted to incorporate a military tone over his designs, using shades of olive green and navy blue. In combination with the casual jackets and scarves, the designer exhibited his desire to step out of his comfort zone and introduce new creative concepts.
Designers, such as Hilfiger, typically inspire others to pursue careers in the field. Individuals who are interested in entering the fashion industry typically need a two or four year degree to land a desirable position, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
