Specifically targeting the 25 to 45 year old consumer, the Tommy Hilfiger label appeals to those seeking a new interpretation on classic American style. The new 3,900 sq. ft. store packed full with Americano fashion styles has opened at the upmarket Knightsbridge.
The two floors have been carefully laid out with Tommy Hilfiger’s signature design elements including the use of vintage posters, iconic New York landscape posters and references to the American flag in shades of red, white and blue. Oak herringbone carpet flooring lends itself to a naughty rustic look, with bright Persian carpets offering a rather decadent contract.
The trademark Yacht Club pieces with a navy, classic feel available in mainly white and red spanning parkas, shirts and peacoats. The fine-striped boy shorts and seersucker blazer are also signature items. The Blues Collection offers more of the preppy look which has always kept Tommy Hilfilger well ensconsed with the Ivy League university students and wannabes.
