At the latest Tommy Hilfiger show for the designer’s spring 2012 collection, two large side-set screens zoomed in real-time footage of shoes, accessories and exquisite details. The result? We’re officially head over heels with those chunky wooden-heeled penny loafers in amazing punchy colors and dazzling prints.
Called Pop Prep, the Tommy Hilfiger collection for spring 2012 was fresh and playful with an effortlessly chic, modern preppy feeling. An impressive and joyous exhibition of showstopping shades of red, orange, yellow, pink and turquoise, patterns, camouflage, stripes and refined color blocking.
There was a mesmerizing explosion of colors and lots of preppy Americana pieces. Plaid bikini bottoms teamed with ponchos, ’60s shirt dresses and coats, ’70s jumpsuits, masculine-inspired classic pieces, cropped pants, cable-knit sweaters worn over rugby shirts. And those attention-grabbing colorblock tote bags, alluring boots, comfy flat sandals and oh-so-fashionable high-heeled loafers made everyone dream of sunny spring days.
Coming in a wide range of colors and materials, the famous Tommy Hilfiger loafers were reinvented and given an uber-covetable touch, perfect to finish off an office-appropriate look or a casual, daytime ensemble. If you like your heels high, the collection also features chic sandals in bold hues. Still, if tottering around in killer heels is not your taste, you can always count on a pair of foot-friendly flat sandals.
