FASHION101: If you dont know, Zooey meets Tommy



Tommy Hilfiger says the collaboration with  Zooey Deschanel appealed to him because “she doesn’t take herself too seriously. She lives her life with a sense of humor. Certainly [anyone can think of] a lot of Hollywood actors and Hollywood types who take themselves very seriously — and certainly in the fashion business, people take themselves very seriously — but we don’t.”

The 16-piece collection includes Deschanel’s trademark flouncy dresses, as well as handbags and playfully nautical accessories, all in Hilfiger’s signature red-white-and-blue palette. The singer-actress was “very involved” in the design process, Hilfiger affirmed. “She knows very well what she likes and doesn’t like. She loved this vintage, ’60s/’70s look inspired by



Jean Shrimpton ,” as well as the “sense of humor” toward style displayed by

Lucille Ball . Hilfiger and Deschanel both noted that the collection has a

Mary Tyler Moore-esque  sensibility, and she added that some of the pieces could fit in at a

David Bailey photo shoot or among the work of French New Wave filmmakers

Claude Chabrol  and

Jacques Demy  .

So here’s a lesson on how art, movies and all things creative inspire design.

Something old and someone new…lets call this 16 piece collection “modical”  =mod+nautical
