With the music festival girl as his muse, Tommy Hilfiger channels his longtime love of rock-and-roll for his Spring 2015 collection. The look is a glamorous riff on the vintage rock style of his favorite iconic musicians of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. Inspired by the heyday of rock’s golden era, his collection takes an updated cue from the free-spirited festival girls of today, channeling their youthful energy and effortless cool.

“Spring 2015 blends
Americana heritage
with vintage rock style,
updated for the modern
music festival muse”

The collection features Tommy’s signature color palette, given an edgy remix in deep, moody hues with metallic pops. Embellished concert tees, eclectic vintage buttons, and brocade taping on band jackets, pea coats, and flared trousers evoke a nostalgic King’s Road attitude. Sixties-era military tailoring is seen throughout the collection as a nod to theatrical Sgt. Pepper style. Familiar Tommy classics get a rocker twist—the breton striped t-shirt is finished with gold bullion trim and done in an airy silk jersey, and jeans and jean jackets inspired by his ‘70s archival pieces are reinterpreted in a patchwork of selvedge denim.

“The inspiration came from music. Very loose and slightly unkempt, and kind of delicate at the same time, it’s a chic take on hippie” — Eugene Souleiman

“Inspired by festivals, we gave the girls a little bit of black around the eyes, and played with painted star tattoos on the face, hands and body.” — Pat McGrath
