The set was a giant ship that resembled an early 20th-century passenger liner, complete with a starry night sky.
This season Tommy Hilfiger explored his love of nautical. It was masculine meets feminine, charming and fun, with unexpected combinations that offered a playful sense of irreverence and cinematic flair.
Military coats were cut oversized in winter wool and trimmed with gold medals and bullion. We loved the fisherman sweaters with bits of tulle and wide-leg sailor pants turn up cropped in velvet.

Consumers, bloggers, influencers and members of the media are all able to engage in conversations about fashion that are dynamic, democratic and multi-dimensional.
Celebrating the fusion of social media and fashion show photography, select Instagrammers had access to the “InstaPit” – a dedicated Instagram Media Pit. The “InstaPit” brings a modern twist to NYFW photography that complements the traditional media riser with an exclusive space for Instagrammers to capture the Fall 2016 Hilfiger Collection looks as they premiere on the runway. Guests in the InstaPit included top Instgrammers and photographers Nash Grier, Bethany Mota, Bryant Eslava, Stefanie Giesinger and Lee Oliveira, among others.
The Fast Lane Check in
Tommy Hilfiger is the first brand at NYFW to premiere the GPS Radar for Apple Watch app. Guests with the GPS Radar app on their Apple Watches received key imagery from Hilfiger’s runway, front row and backstage, and were able to bypass the pre-show line-up outside through a dedicated “fast lane” exclusively for the app users.
The show also marked the introduction of Tommy Hilfiger’s new Snapchat channel, which was launched by supermodel Gigi Hadid before the show kicked off. The brand’s first Snapchat posts provided audiences with exclusive backstage access.
