Tommy Hilfiger updated his preppy style by focusing on attention to unexpected details, finishes and colour combinations that, while discreet, had a pop touch. Over a comfortable, relaxed silhouette, he constructed a balanced mix of sportswear and elegance in which the former was represented by trousers with side bands, anoraks, and zip through sweatshirts, and the latter by tailored blazers and suits, some of which had pyjamas appeal with lots of stripes – a dominant theme in the collection. Horizontal stripes, vertical pinstripes, sailor stripes, stripes broken into colour blocking, red-blue or black-white stripes, stripes bridging the gap between sports and college wear – always an inspiration for the Made in Usa brand.
