TOMMYxGIGI A/W 2016 Capsule Collection

Gigi and Tommy Hilfiger walking in the show finale.

When Gigi revealed she was working on a capsule collection with Tommy Hilfiger I was over the moon. I am a big fan of Gigi as a model I think she's very good at what she does and Gigi's always promoted a healthy lifestyle which I think is an important thing for her to do as a model. On Instagram she's been teasing her followers (including me!) with pictures of the collection and I just couldn't wait until fashion week to finally see everything in the collection. I can honestly say this was one of the smartest collaborations at fashion week (besides Alexander Wang and Adidas but we'll discuss this later). Tommy's designs clash with Gigi's aesthetic which is very important for a capsule collection. Gigi is a true Tommy girl. 

The looks below are some of my favourite picks from this collection:

Look 1
Look 2
Look 5
Look 6
Look 10
Look 12
Look 17
Look 18
Look 30
Look 32
Look 34
The collection contained simplistic or as I call them "Tommy colours", navy, brown, black, white and red. It's clearly meant to attract younger audience which is not surprising, but I definitely think there are some timeless pieces in his collection. I think both the navy and the brown coat are staple winter pieces you'll want in your closet. My absolute favourite piece is the very first jacket Gigi walked out in, I think it's such a statement piece and it has a beautiful structure. Also I love the styling statement piece of putting a bandanna around every model's neck, it gave every look a festival vibe. I think what's very special about this line is, every single one of the outfits that came down the runway presented a Gigi look. Gigi as a casual, sporty, festival and even "paparazzi caught" girl.
And where best to present this line but in a fun carnival environment surrounded with not only with press and buyers but also Gigi's friends and fans who waited so long for this collection.
