I only passively pay attention to fashion weeks these days but I always perk up when I see anything remotely nautical (military, in general) come down the runways. Fall/Winter 2016 wasn't overflowing with my fav-o-rite trend but I'll take what I can get. Especially when Mr. Hilfiger packed so much in to his collection. Here's what caught my eye for Fall/Winter 2016.
The entire collection was a smash with tons of meaningful details and a 1940's vintage vibe. And the steamship set? Swoon... Each season, Tommy Hilfiger comes up with a theme and runs with it. I can't wait to see the ad campaigns for this collection.
COACH took the classic navy wool pea coat and gave it fun, colorful embellishments that look fresh, even if a little costume-y. Hello Sailor!
Tibi's olive drab military trench was given luxe details like red contrast piping and shining, oversized buttons. Put a gold button on (almost) anything and I'll dig it.
There's been a lot of recent chatter about the evolution of runway shows. Read about how the approach to fashion week is changing here.
