Rocking with the rebelsWeekend Glitz | Charlie Lam and Katie Hung 17 Nov 2017
TommyXGigi is back. Following the success of two previous collaborations, the Fall 2017 TommyXGigi collection reminisces on the rock'n'roll style of the 90s, with a female twist and rebellious attitude.
The team-up may give you a hint of Tommy Hilfiger's determination to expand its young market. The international model and fashion icon Gigi Hadid is modeling and designing for her own collection.
Blending street-style into American classic wear, the new collection is playing with over-sized proportions and athletic elements.
Denim, high-shine leather and Gothic script are what this collection is about. Inspired by rock'n'roll fashion, mixed colors, tartan and metallic studs are reborn in a relaxed but glamorous rock touch. A case in point is the red and blue tartan coat in wool, which shows a vintage and rock look.
Fans of Hadid may find the strong personal style of their idol in the new collection. Details such as loose-fitting silhouettes, deliberate abrasions in jeans or crop tops present the feminism in a casual and rebellious way.
Pair the black crop top showing the H character with scratched denim shorts. Tying a knot with a tartan shirt placed around the waist leads to a wilder look.
Together with other segments such as accessories, shoes and sunglasses, the collection gives a new interpretation of rock'n'roll style.
