We just got several times more excited for The Great Gatsby to come out this summer.
NAHM, the design duo comprised of Tommy Hilfiger‘s daughter Alexandria Hilfiger and business partner Nary Manivong, has just announced that they’ve come to the end of the road and will be halting operations.
Do you know which pair of designers have a vacation home with an 18k gold guest room? How about who boards a $60 million yacht when he needs to take a break his ten other homes around the world? Or whose NYC townhouse used to house twelve separate apartments? Find out all this and more in our ultimate guide to the over-the-top real estate of our favorite fashion designers…the only thing that remains to be asked now is “When can we move in?”
Peter Som is leaving his consulting position at Tommy Hilfiger after five years. Som started his eponymous company in 2001, and was brought onto the Hilfiger team as a creative consultant in 2009 to refresh and modernize the label.
It’s Memorial Day weekend, which means the dog days of summer are almost upon us! Let’s ring in the season with some very fashionable pooches.
Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! In honor of this very special day, we’ve taken the expression “mother knows best” to heart and rounded up some of the best pieces of advice that top designers say they ever received from their moms.
Last month, when ABC News’ Brian Ross found Tommy Hilfiger backstage at his fall fashion show, the investigative reporter asked him if he was still manufacturing at a Bangladesh factory where a 2010 fire killed 29 of his workers. Hilfiger’s response: “I can tell you that we no longer make clothes in those factories. We pulled out of all of those factories.” His security team then promptly had Ross and his camera crew ejected from the show.
“I heard that once you and your buddies made money, you couldn’t spend it fast enough. That at one point, you had a Porsche, a Mercedes, a Jaguar, and a Jeep,” the formidable Fern Mallis chided Tommy Hilfiger. The designer laughed and gave a sheepish smile. “Well… yeah, that sounds about right.”
We loved Brad Goreski on The Rachel Zoe Project, faithfully recapped It’s A Brad, Brad World all winter, and follow both him and Gary Janetti on Twitter, so we jumped at the chance to cover his book party, which was hosted by Details and held last night at the Tommy Hilfiger store on 5th Avenue.
For its second go at the “Americans in Paris” intiative, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund has teamed up with Tommy Hilfiger and 10 emerging designers to reimagine the classic Tommy trench.
The saying goes that if you build it, they will come. So Tommy Hilfiger, that old stalwart of American design, built a park in the middle of New York City for his fall 2012 runway presentation. And celebrities and editors and fashion lovers alike all came in droves to see it.
When Styleite fashion news editor Justin Fenner — who accompanied me to/held my hand through Tommy Hilfiger’s Fall 2012 Collection event at the Seventh Regiment Armory on Park Avenue last night — asked me what I thought of the show, apparently all I said was that I “kinda liked” it. I have an excuse for being a little dead-brained, though: I’d never been to one of these before. You see, normally I work over on Styleite’s sister site SportsGrid, and my knowledge of the fashion world consists mainly of what Styleite people tell me.
Everyone has to get their start somewhere, and billionaire fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger got his literally on the streets. Instead of going to design school or apprenticing for a fashion giant, Hilfiger and a high-school buddy sold jeans to their friends out of the trunk of their car.
Don’t believe the hype: fashion editors sitting in the front rows at major runway presentations aren’t out to get each other. Elle’s Robbie Myers and Glamour’s Cindi Leive told us last night at the Tommy Hilfiger show that their interactions are generally quite pleasant.
Before Sunday night, Styleite only knew Tommy Hilfiger‘s rapper son Rich Hil through his underminey profile in The New York Observer. All that changed when we ran into him at his father’s spring 2012 fashion show.
Via a deliciously underminey profile, the New York Observer teaches us why Tommy Hilfiger‘s son Rich Hilfiger is quite possibly the worst example of fashion progeny ever.
Veteran American designer Michael Kors is looking to finance his brand’s global expansion. And everyone in the fields of finance and fashion seems to want a piece of the action — including Kors’ competitor Tommy Hilfiger.
Though the fashion world has shied away from obvious logos and labels in recent years, those brand signifiers actually carry a whole lot of weight according to a new study out of the Netherlands.
We pride ourselves on our sports coverage here on Styleite, so you can imagine our frustration when we saw a 7 foot tall man towering over the runway at Sunday night’s Tommy Hilfiger show and couldn’t quite place him. A flurry of emails between us and SportsGrid later, we had confirmation: it was Amar’e Stoudemire, Anna Wintour‘s new BFF and center/forward for the New York Knicks.
