Zooey Deschanel And Tommy Hilfiger Collaborate On Surprisingly Un-Quirky New Fashion Line

Tommy Hilfiger and Zooey Deschanel have created a spring line together called To Tommy, From Zooey, which will feature a vintageload of #vintage #inspo
and cinched waists.

The New Girl and Mister Red, White & Blue met at a mutual friend’s house and as Hilfiger recalls, “She was wearing this vintage jumpsuit. I complimented her on it, and she told me how she loved vintage. Somehow, the conversation went from loving vintage to possibly doing a capsule collection with her.”

Hilfiger explaining the collection: “They are Sixties-inspired short dresses. There is a lot of red, white and blue, but done in a Zooey way with interesting detail and flirty fabrics. They are very Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy – really from the Sixties in London. That’s not something we would normally put in our regular sportswear line – maybe we’d be inspired by the Sixties for the runway, but it’s a new way to look at fun, American classics.”

Hilfiger on working with Deschanel: “She reminds me of Audrey Hepburn for her sense of humor, her sophistication. She is very bright and very funny, and really down to earth, the girl next door. At the same time, she has a Jackie O type of chicness to her.”

Zooey on the collaboration: “I am a fashion fanatic, and I am always looking for new ways to incorporate vintage, feminine pieces into my own wardrobe. Tommy and I share many of the same inspirations – old-school music, classic films and old Hollywood icons – and his guidance during the design process helped to put a really unique twist on each piece.”

The line is to be available on tommy.com as of the 21st of April, with certain Tommy Hilfiger stores also carrying Deschanel-designed jewelry and handbags. No word yet as to whether the line will extend to accessories eg. Strap-On Fringes.
