Top 3 Picks from the Zooey Deschanel Tommy Hilfiger Collection

12 Apr

The Zooey Deschanel Tommy Hilfiger capsule collection launched this week and we’ve picked out our favorite outfits that use the classic Tommy Hilfiger color palette with Zooey Deschanel vintage-inspired sensibility. Deschanel is a TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite and Jess from New Girl appears frequently on the costuming wish list (including this recent Tommy Hilfiger outfit).

Pleats, polka dots and sixties stylings; these are some of my favorite things. New Girl co-star Hannah Simone is wearing the Hannah dress – yes it is named after her, it would be awkward if it wasn’t – and she’s found the ideal pair of shoes to complete the nautical look. Can it hurry up and be summer?

Zooey Deschanel’s Ready-to-wear Collection with Tommy Hilfiger

28 Jan

TV Ate My Wardrobe are huge fans of both Zooey Deschanel and her character Jess on New Girl’s style, so when we saw the news of the collaboration between Deschanel and Tommy Hilfiger (in the midst of a Felicity discussion with TAMW contributor Julie Hammerle) the questions of when, how much and what does the collection look like immediately sprung to mind. WWD has the answers and it won’t break the bank – unless you buy all 16 dresses – as the prices range from $98 to $199 and 14 of the 16 items will be on sale at Macy’s from April 14. The “To Tommy, From Zooey” line will land on tommy.com on April 21 and some stores will also include handbags and jewelry designed by Deschanel.

Zooey Deschanel THThe overall theme of the collection is vintage inspired with red, blue and white as the predominant color palette; mixing Mod with nautical and “it’s a new way to look at fun, American classics.” Whenever Deschanel discusses style inspiration in the plethora of magazine profiles vintage is the one constant factor and this collection has a whole ’60s vibe with the above shirt dress (this is my favorite of the looks released) really embodying this notion.

Sketch Zooey DeschanelPleats and prints are two dominant fabric and pattern themes with feminine and flirty looks featuring throughout; fit and flare is where it is at. This is part of the spring/summer ready-to-wear collection and it fits the “Tommy girl” aesthetic with a Deschanel twist. It pretty much has me longing for the end of this cold weather even though I’ll still be hankering for my tights with skirts this short.

Zooey Deschanel capsule collectionAt the Met Gala in May Zooey Deschanel attended wearing a seersucker gown by Hilfiger and while it didn’t really match the punk theme (but really most attendees missed the memo) it showed that Deschanel and Hilfiger were a style match in heaven. This is why this collaboration isn’t too much of a surprise and in terms of perception Deschanel’s twee styling has long been up for discussion and so she might as well get something positive out of it. In an InStyle interview last year she said “People are more affected by how I look and dress myself than I think anyone would care to admit” and so by producing a collection like this it might give detractors something to nod along to and say ‘of course,’ but fans of her style (like myself) will be cheering.

to tommy, from zooey sketchWhile none of the sketches or finished pieces that we have seen so far has included Peter Pan collars – Deschanel exclaimed in Glamour magazine last year “I want to be a fucking feminist and wear a fucking Peter Pan collar. So fucking what?” – I wouldn’t be surprised if a few sneak in. The word brand is kinda eye roll inducing and yet Deschanel is building her multimedia empire; actor, musician, producer, web entrepreneur and now designer. It’s worth repeating that this is a line that isn’t extravagantly priced and it also looks wearable. If only it would get a little warmer.
