Fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger and American actress Zendaya co-designed TommyXZendaya Fall 2019 “see now, buy now” collection that celebrates empowerment, inclusivity and diversity in fashion, presented on Sunday, September 8th, at Harlem’s Apollo Theater, during the ongoing New York Fashion Week.
“TOMMYNOW is traveling back to New York Fashion Week to premiere the second TommyXZendaya collection co-designed by Tommy Hilfiger and American actress Zendaya. It is a celebration of empowering fashion and individuality, of confidence and diversity, hosted at Harlem’s iconic Apollo Theater where the spirit of music legends and top entertainers can be felt in every corner.
Era-defining ’70s and ‘80s power dressing is redefined with a bold and modern edge. Sartorial tailoring and scarf dressing stand out with sophisticated constellation and sleek animal motifs. Signature houndstooth and polka dot prints in unexpected proportions bring a unique play to maxi skirts and wrap dresses. Warm burgundy hues mix with metallics and monochrome palettes for a fresh edge. Luxurious fabrics bring the collection together, from creamy leathers and faux furs, to rich velvets and premium denim.
Inspired by ’70s uptown New York, the inclusive cast continued to celebrate and proudly portray models with a huge diversity of background, size, age, gender expression and ethnicity. The cast of models included Winnie Harlow, Yasmin Wijnaldum and Sara Sampaio, who between them have been part of the Tommy Hilfiger shows and brand story for 10 years. They were joined by Ashley Graham, Candice Swanepoel, Alek Wek, Soojoo Park, Halima Aden, Leomie Anderson, Yasmin Warsame and a new wave of talent including Aaliyah Hydes, Abby Champion, Babacar N’Doye, and Indira Scott.“
