NEW YORK -- There's nothing like an island getaway to get a week off to a good start. That's what designer Tommy Hilfiger delivered in his spring 2016 runway show Monday morning at New York Fashion Week -- and that's why he's one of Stylebook's NYFW runway hot picks!
He created a piece of paradise (set pictured above) inside Pier 36 at South Street in lower Manhattan, a change of scenery for a brand that usually takes over the mammoth Park Avenue Armory on the Upper East Side for its elaborate fashion shows.
Mr. Hilfiger, always the master of meticulous details, brought the island theme to life with a wooden plank runway that wrapped around an indoor lagoon with sand, palm trees and even a cabana, where island folks enjoyed a carefree day near the water.
The fashions were a vibrant display of colorful patchwork pieces, rainbow crocheted swimwear and separates, effortless maxis and casual printed pajama suits, topped with the occasional bucket hat and geometric bag. When models reemerged for their final walk, they left the runway to playfully splash in the lagoon.
The collection had a deliberate Jamaican flavor, seasoned with Hilfiger's signature polished, cool-girl punch.
