NYFW | Boardwalk to Runway - Tommy Hilfiger SS14 Review

Tommy Hilfiger's collection was all about surf culture and SoCal at New York Fashion Week. The cool air of models walking down a boardwalk runway from "Melrose to Malibu" (said the designer) showcased love for optimism - definitely a strong theme for Spring Summer. The collection was interesting and quite innovative, where the shorts and skirts looked like peeled down wetsuits. The use of neoprene was also quite interesting, taking the whole idea of surfing quite literally. Even the designs running along the body of the pieces represented those on wetsuits and waves. It's a fun and sexy idea and the show also had florals.

There were so many good runway looks so check them out here.

Bright blues, oranges and reds in colour-blocking were prominent and they worked great with the wetsuit details. Colour-blocking is also great with geometry. There were also a few pieces in pastel colours and some pieces where florals were sectioned off as accents for the garments. Some summer dresses inspired by jerseys were cool too but I was really into the footwear, great sneakers and even the sandals - they were strong with the colours and looked great with the knitted dress.

Because neoprene was used in many of the pieces, it gave the looks a much stronger structure. I really liked the grey sweatshirt with colour-blocking. Other cool pieces were the neoprene polo and short jacket.
