‘New Girl’ Zooey Deschanel teams with Tommy Hilfiger for dress line
By Brittany Anas
She first charmed us with her rendition of “Baby it’s Cold Outside” in the movie Elf and then totally won us over through her character Jess on New Girl. Zooey Deschanel is a triple threat: Great singer, charming actress and a darling style icon.
If you’re anything like us, you’ve indulged in a Netflix marathon of New Girl episodes and in between snorting out laughs, you might have developed a style crush on Zooey’s sweater-cardigan combos.
That’s why we we’re excited to hear that Zooey and Tommy Hilfiger have teamed up for a capsule collection of dresses that are due out later this spring. The collection, “To Tommy, From Zooey,” will be available first at Macy’s beginning in mid-April. While a lookbook isn’t out, early sketches hint at inspiration from the 1960’s as well as the familiar red, white and blue color palette in Tommy designs. We can expect classic spring materials like pique and oxford cloth, silks and linens, as well as color-blocking and short hems embraced by fashion icons like Twiggy.
Zooey dishes that she and Tommy Hilfiger share many of the same inspirations — old school music, classic films and old Hollywood icons — and his guidance during the design process helped put a unique twist on each piece.
“I am a fashion fanatic and I am always looking for new ways to incorporate vintage, feminine pieces into my own wardrobe,” Deshchanel says.
The dresses will range from classic shirt dresses to more flirty peek-a-boo styles — with fun prints hidden inside the bleats. Deschanel describes some of the designs as being “modical,” as in a touch of 60’s mod, combined with nautical inspiration.
Hilfiger, in a news release, says the collection is a perfect fusion of Zooey’s adventurous style and the classic, cool American spirit of the Tommy Hilfiger brand.
The collection will include 16 dresses ranging in price from $98 to $199. Online shoppers will have access to the complete collection, as a couple of the dresses won’t be available in stores.
