Tommy’s all-American girl went from the beach to the deep forest this season, so I strapped on my own boots (thigh-high PVC natch) and hiked uptown to see the Tommy Hilfiger fall/winter collection- what they do best. Who would have thunk I would be transported all the way back home to a campground in Seattle…!

I was dressed in the brilliant AW 2014 houndstooth collection, paired with a Hugo Boss scarf and baroque PVC Mame bag. It’s still a bit too cold out to wear the spring collections so the venue was awash in houndstooth like it was going extinct. I was invited backstage where I got a peek of the makeup team, headed up by the industry’s best artist Pat McGrath, and some of the clothes which looked to bringing back tartan plaid in a colorful iteration.

The set showed us what we needed to know; we were going into the mountains and we were not going to be compromising on style. This is much better for me, because anyone who has talked to me for more than 5 minutes would guess that I am more of a mountain girl than say, a pool girl or supermarket girl. City or mountain, please.
There were tons of plaid in comfy wool-cashmere and mohair, layered under alpaca bombers, shearling and red velvet. There were dresses that looked like they may have been made out of my most cherished warm cabin blankets from my childhood too. That, coupled with the outdoor goods and western-style accents and by God it took me back to my homestate of Washington. Learning to pitch a tent is a right of passage there and we have forests and mountains there too and they look like this:
The show even ended with a song by The Smashing Pumpkins, the eponymous 90s grunge band.
Most of us may be stuck in the cities, but it’s a rugged landscape out there and this may be what we need to traverse the cement terrain. I’m in the city now too, but I’m an American girl at heart and I have my eye on all the plaid and workwear that define my home.
このレザーxベルベットのブーツ！♥ Love these leather boots in velvet cozies
Anna Wintour front row…first time I’d seen her all week..perhaps the cold has her mostly in hibernation アナウインター様はやはり外の寒さのあまり、ショーではそんなに見かけしなかったのだけど、さすがにトミーに来てた
