Preppy America meets swinging London.
THE SCENE: A university library straight out of the Ivy League, with book-printed wallpaper in place of real titles.
THE FRONT ROW: Rachel Zoe, Julianne Moore and husband Bart Freundlich
THE SOUNDTRACK: Saint Etienne, Rolling Stones, Suzanne Vega
THE CLOTHES: British tailoring tradition met American collegiate style in Hilfiger’s houndstooth coats and caps. Cable-knit jumper dresses and preppy duffle coats transitioned to harder-edged variations on the theme, with coated knits and leather dresses that were laser-cut to resemble argyle patterns.
THE WORD FROM TOMMY: ‘London was so full of life and full of great ideas in the ‘60s and ‘70s. It’s when all the rock groups started dressing and going on tour, and becoming really strong in the world of music and pop culture.’
