Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2014 Collection

The pants designed to look unzipped are pure trash, but a lot of it is classic, modern beauty, more in line with what I expected from Victoria Beckham than what she put out.
what’s with the ‘oops I forgot to finish zipping my underwear’ styling? especially in those tight trousers(?) that look like they’re showing us artists renditions of the models’ vajayjays?
Exactly. I looked and thought, “One false move, and I’ll be seeing pubes.” Not a good look and well beyond low-rise.
Right??? I had to look about three times to see if it was skin or fabric, especially because he picked out models whose skin matched the flesh tones of the fabrics.
Trashy, trashy, trashy.
Some of those are particularly low. So low that you know these models are completely waxed.
Honestly. Who needs a crotch collar? Weird/tacky.
I think I love you.
Win. I totally thought “why do these pants have Peter Pan collars?”
Love the rest of it, but those are just weird.
Internet Quote of the Day!
No lady needs pubic mound cleavage.
Reminds me of when people wear their cut-offs half unzipped and folded over at the beach. Trashy. Trashy. Trashy.
Everything was going so well until I got to those undone flys. Talk about a needle scratch.
That’s exactly what I thought. It totally ruined the flow.
Me too! I liked the color blocking on the first clutch of dresses but then the collection galloped downhill.
Took the words out my mouth.
“Oh, what a great, evocative collection, this is wond…
CHRISTONACRACKER!! Wha… wha… what IS that???”
Apart from the appallingly tacky looking unzipped looks, there is a lot of great stuff here.
Exactly. I kept wondering why HIlfiger would ruin a perfectly fun sporty collection with streetwalker-wear. I do not want to see anyone’s good china from either the bottom or the top.
I do like some of the suiting and sweatshirt looks, and the sweaters are cute, but EW. The half-zipped bottoms?
I remember how cool I thought I was when I ran around all summer of 1996 in half-zipped, folded down cut-off shorts. I still maintain that I looked better than this. Anyway, why shell out the big bucks for the designer version when you can do this to every pair you already own for free?
It looks to me like he’s going for a surfer/scuba thing. Which doesn’t mean it’s not hiddy.
it’s a surfer-themed howard johnson’s motor hotel.
Damn. Orange really is the new black, isn’t it?
Holy Neoprene Batman!
Yeah, but didn’t Michael Kors do BodyGlove Revisited a few years ago? And so much better? This is like a nightmare mix of discoloured body glove, old fashioned zip up housework clothes that women would wear in the 60′s, and Hang Ten junk clothing. And the unzipped looking pants, as a master theme of the collection? Yuck.
In (slight) defense of the fold down shorts, I live in NE and at the beach it’s a common thing to do when you’re wearing just a bikini top and shorts and you don’t want to accidentally muffin top when walking to the pavilion. So I can get behind styling the blue bandeau top and shorts that way, but that’s it. The rest just look like you forgot to zip your pants up.
Great colors and fun looks, but those unzipped looks are just stupid.
Not really loving the unzipped pants/shorts/bottoms thing. Looks trashy. There are some nice looks in there, but some odd ones as well. A few of the dresses look like shirts that are just too big, including the one that looks like a sweatshirt polo shirt dress.
I’m not sure “I just came from scuba-diving and now I have to go to work, so I’ve pulled on this sweater” is really a look.
I like the saturated colors. I’m a bit over the page and peach gossamer look.
If you edit the trashy elements, there are some really great prints, colors, and pieces that are amazing.
Tomorrowland waitress uniforms and wetsuits gone wild. Except for the white crocheted dress, that was cool.
I was thinking ice cream truck attendant.
The first few dresses reminded me of the waitresses at Howard Johnson’s when I was a kid.
Oh, god. Those unzipped-looking pants are just plain vulgar.
I don’t understand them AT ALL!
Ugly clothes for the most part but I like the sweaters in the middle and some of the sandals. Mostly yuck though
Stop trying to make neoprene happen.
Really, how is #12 down not just depicting a straight up cartoon vadge? (10 and 11 too, but 12 is flesh toned, so even worse.) That said, I like a lot of this stuff.
There are a lot of nice things here, but no to the half-unzipped pants with collars and some of these things are a little too masculine for my taste.
Not really a fan of this collection but… who here remembers that show with daughter Hilfiger and daughter Gliser (?) that was on MTV?? Rich Girls, maybe? Man what an awesomely terrible show that was.
With the exception of the pants with the undone zippers, Most of this collection is fun and stylish, and I really love the colors.
This. I’m hoping that the zippers can be done up and aren’t stuck in that position. That was just ewwww.
They can, but some of them still have those aptly named “crotch colors,” as Katesymae has coined them.
I had to look twice to make sure some of those unzipped-pants-collar thingies weren’t actually embellished, visible thongs. Really, Mr. Hilfiger. You have ruined my day, sir.
Image 19 — that dress. I wish that’s what Dom had done instead of the quilted dress to go with the sneakers she picked for the shoe challenge.
I usually like Tommy Hilfiger, but not so much this time. Hope the men’s collection is better (my younger son loves to wear his stuff).
I don’t get the undone zipper thing.
Personally I think the shoes are all fairly ugly.
“Hit Me Baby One More Time” realness is all I see. Where is Britney with that basketball?
Clearly the director of design of this dull mess is putting out at the office. How else can u explain the big costly production of nothing?
Please stop w/ the VFcorp and PVH brand promotions boys.
The unzipped crotch decorations are straight out of ecchi mecha anime, like women’s pilot suits.
Not my taste in general, but that half-open fly look? YIKES!
I like the first four looks and a couple of others. Everything else is either boring or ugly. And what’s with the unzipped pants thing? Is that supposed to be cute, or sexy, or tantalizing, or original, or…what? Actually, it’s just silly.
I think it’s a low-slung-pants-showing-undies fakeout. At a glance it looks dangerous, but it really isn’t.
None of this is my thing, but I like the way he’s riffing on the surfer’s wetsuit as a design motif.
Ugh to the crotch collars – just hiddy. The dresses look like flight attendants. On an NBA charter flight.
Blech! it’s very Project Runway finale collection.
wha? that was odd, some of it is quite nice but some of it is pretty cracked out
Score one for Rhianna. Wasn’t she photographed wearing the basket ball inspired numbered jersey dress like a week ago? I like this collection and love the accessories. I also like the shoes & bags.
The top half with the retro vibe is stunning; probably my favorite pieces this season!. Love the colors and the lines. The bottom half – the Hawaiian prints and baggy clothes – awful! What a strange collection.
“That crotch is insane.”
I don’t care for his style (being nice) but I like those first few dresses.
I want all the dresses. Love the gray sweatshirt type one with the aqua sleeves.
It’s colorful. That’s all I got and I am usually a big TH fan.
These read McDonald’s uniforms from the 70s-80s to me. do not like.
I saw that as well.
There’s about a 50-60% chance of fug and a 40-50% chance of classic American sportswear.
The first few dresses are giving me bad flashbacks. My 80′s polyester, zip-front Burger King uniform looked just like that. I kid you not!
The Fug girls nailed it:
And then Tommy showed pants that look like they’re peeling off the body
– the effect is as if your pelvis is wearing a Polo shirt. Or whatever a
Hilfiger version would look like. A Holo shirt.
Oh neoprene. So sweaty. So shapeless. The colorblocking and piecing are fun, but this is a collection for Scuba Barbie and Friends, not real people. The sweaters are usually my favorite part of a Hilfiger collection, color me disappointed.
Do not want.
The first few dresses — having been a waitress in my salad days, no thanks. I didn’t like dressing like that back then; I sure wouldn’t pay mucho dinero to do so now.
The polo shirt opening on the pants is one of those notions that probably looked clever on paper but is almost lewd in real life. Yuck.
Er. Jeez. I’ve never been a TH fan but this is just… I dunno… blergh. Why would anybody want to wear scuba wear around town?
Few good individual items though, like the navy blue flow blouse & cardigan and the red, grey and blue suits.
Pants with a peel-away crotch. OK.
I was all like “Okay, some good saleable geometric pieces here.” Then we got to the easy access shorts and zippers. And I thought, “Ugh. Ick. Wrong.” Then there was a breather. Yay. Then more. Yuck. And so on and so forth. Ladies, just say no to easy access bottoms. You will thank yourself in the future.
I’ve seen many ghetto preggo girls wearing shorts similar to those. They can’t afford maternity clothes so they just wear their regular shorts unzipped. FASHION.
It’s too bad about those weird collar-pant things because the rest of it is sort of interesting.
I actual want the dress in the final photo. Super cute. The crotch flaps are gross.
Those pants (you know the ones) are absolutely vulgar. (I’m from the South and have a very developed sensitivity to such things, while at the same time being generally hard to offend. And those are REALLY offensive.)
And is as much of this neoprene as it appears to be? Just looks sweaty and uncomfortable. Plus some A & F ripoffs. Very not my style.
Probably the best collection I remember seeing from him.
while I’m not defending the zipper element, I don’t think the rise is vulgarly low – these models have “tall” pelvises!
Wooo, a whole lot of ugly up in here, I especially dislike the flat sandals and the “peeling” pants.
Looks like a line you would find at Target.
Why does it all look like the rubbery plastic clothes you’d put on Polly Pocket? It looks so stiff, heavy and… sweaty. I also don’t know how I feel about a shirt collar on pants.
Sort of racist how glammed up basketball jerseys are used as part of this collection’s trash glam elements
I only like the first 4 or 5 frames… college preppy or sporty, casual. Goofy looking swimsuits and shorts.
This is amazing, I love this collection. The colours, the contrast, amazing!
mostly they look like fast food workers who are flashing their customers. the more upscale looks are perfect for howard johnson’s employees.
There are some flaws, but I love this color blocking/cutout shit much better than the former geometric shapes. The curvy angles are much more flattering.
