Set in a gravel strewn park complete with park bench front-row seating and a bevy of maple trees, the bucolic and beautiful backdrop paved the way for a delightfully spirited collection whose looks more than suggested a whiff of Duchess of Cambridge elegance.
Hilfiger entitled his show Town and Country, suggesting that the colour-blocked military style coats and leather dresses and suits would be home no matter the setting. It was Hilfigers use of suede, however, that really struck a nice chord. It was luxe: quilted and colourblocked, the new-and-improved hunting suit aesthetic was highly attractive. Glen plaid and houndstooth, meanwhile, offered a classic take on menswear patternsreinterpreted in silk dresses with riding and cable knit prints and pleated backs. Adding to the attractiveness of the clothes was a rich colour palette of burgundy, midnight navy and caramel suggested the airs of Camelotno matter which side of the Atlantic.
