SPRING 2017 COLLECTION STATEMENT
The “See Now, Buy Now” movement hits the beach and we’re giving instant access to our Spring 2017 Hilfiger Collection and TommyXGigi capsule.
We were inspired by California—the youthful attitude, the laidback lifestyle, and the spirit of festivals where music and style collide with our own pop culture heritage. Our take is a greatest hits of Americana with lots of denim, nods to western culture and patches to make things personal.
As the sun goes down, we celebrate the ultimate fashion festival and the freedom to mix things up in a way that makes you feel great. W elcome to T OMM YL AND .
TOMMYNOW marked the global launch of the Spring 2017 TommyXGigi collection, the second collaboration with supermodel Gigi Hadid, who opened the show in a look from the capsule. Gigi is the global ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger women’s, including apparel, footwear, accessories, sunglasses, watches and fragrance. The TommyXGigi collection celebrates her relaxed, West Coast aesthetic fused with Hilfiger’s signature East Coast heritage.
The TOMMYNOW runway also included looks from Spring 2017 Hilfiger Collection, the pinnacle of the women’s product offering.
Inspired by the ultimate West Coast music and arts festival, over 3,000 guests – including 2,000 consumers and 1,000 press, buyers, VIPs and industry influencers – were invited to enjoy inspiring, unexpected fashion experiences. Guests had the chance to shop Tommy Vintage by Frankie Collective, get a taste of local Smorgasbord L.A. food trucks, take in a stunning panoramic view of TOMMYLAND from the Kamikaze and Landslide rides, and end the evening with surprise live music performances.
During the show finale Tommy and Gigi introduced eight-time Grammy award winner Fergie, who gave a show-stopping performance for the crowd of models, celebrities, press and consumers featuring her
biggest solo hits, including her new single M.I.L.F.$, and chart toppers from the Black Eyed Peas. American soul Duo Lion Babe also played the TOMMYLAND stage with an incredible set of their chart- climbing hits.
TOMMYNOW is built on Hilfiger’s vision to democratize fashion by delivering instant gratification to consumers through an ecosystem of immediately shoppable channels. This season the brand introduced new channels and next generation features, leveraging digital innovation to connect with global consumers in a personalized way that reflects how they live and shop today.
For the TOMMYNOW Spring 2017 show, Tommy Hilfiger became the first brand to launch 3D image recognition commerce on the runway, introducing a seamless and instant way to shop the TOMMYNOW runway. Consumers can use the custom branded TOMMYLAND SNAP:SHOP app designed in partnership with top visual search technology developer, Slyce, to shop from photos of 3D moving images, such as models walking the runway or product in store, or 2D images such as ad placements and editorial shots.
With rapid increases in image search queries and over three billion photos shared on mobile apps every day, image recognition commerce has incredible potential to change how consumers search and shop for the looks they love.
