Collab We Love: Zooey Deschanel x Tommy Hilfiger
The all-American designer and '60s-loving actress turn out a line of darling dresses.
Talk about a match made in collaboration heaven. Zooey Deschanel’s long-anticipated capsule collection for Tommy Hilfiger hits stores today, and the looks are just as a fun and charming as the actress herself. Dubbed "To Tommy from Zooey," the range of short, sporty frocks ($99- $199) casts Deschanel’s vintage-girl aesthetic in Hilfiger’s trademark red, white and blue palette.
The result is a collection of super-wearable shifts, shirt-dresses and drop-waist numbers that speak to Deschanel and Hilfiger's joint fascination with the early 1960s.
"Classic films and old Hollywood Icons like Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O served as inspiration for my earliest designs," says Hilfiger. "I loved the opportunity to revisit these elements and look at them through Zooey's cool, unique perspective."
Deschanel, who used to make her own clothes in high school, coined the term "modical" to describe the mod-meets-nautical details that give the dresses, accompanying handbags ($99-$119) and small jewelry line-up ($35-$49) a distinctly playful vibe.
We call them just plain adorable –and are calling dibs on tennis-inspired navy blue v-neck number ($149.50) for our Fourth of July cook-out. Too soon?
