New Girl Star Zooey Deschanel Designs A Tommy Hilfiger Capsule Collection
There’s a New Girl in the fashion world and her name is Zooey Deschanel.
The adorkable actress and star of the hit FOX comedy series has teamed up with Tommy Hilfiger to design a capsule collection.
“She reminds me of Audrey Hepburn for her sense of humor, her sophistication,” the American designer told WWD of his newest muse. “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. We always try to ascertain whether or not someone is a ‘Tommy girl.” She is the epitome of it—all-American, youthful, fun and funny, yet she has a sophistication and worldliness to her that’s quite endearing. She is easy to get along with and she is quite involved. She really knows what she likes and what she doesn’t like.”
Pulling from her own closet, the “To Tommy, From Zooey” spring capsule collection was inspired by the 32-year-old brunette’s very own off-kilter vintage style. “I am a fashion fanatic, and I am always looking for new ways to incorporate vintage, feminine pieces into my own wardrobe,” she said. “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 sassy collection of 16 dresses will be sold exclusively at Macy’s stores priced between $98 and $199. “They are Sixties-inspired short dresses,” Hilfiger explained of the collection. “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.”
Take a closer look at “To Tommy, From Zooey,” which launches on April 14, below. Are you ready to go old-school with the new girl?
