DUBAI - Tommy Hilfiger's Spring 2012 collection is inspired by the fusion of preppy and pop art. Twisting classic shapes through a modern kaleidoscope of nuanced colours, the collection pays homage to the 60s.

Iconic American essentials are infused with the Tommy hallmark of optimism and vibrancy, while the swing of the 60s lends an effortless charm to a new prep attitude.

Menswear heritage is re-imagined with a feminine hand, from shirtdresses to long-sleeved jumpsuits and shirttail hems. Warhol hues are paired with classic khakis and tailored denim in a refreshing take on coluor blocking. A custom Bespoke check evolves a menswear staple into unexpected separates and outerwear such as nylon anoraks and bonded cotton hoodies. Classic Oxford shirting is cleverly used in pieces like a motorcycle jacket and a basic blazer.

Nautical-striped rugby shirts and dresses in a range of widths and brights are worn with slim, luxe leathers and motocross denim. Camouflage prints are feminised with a dot overlay and grounded with tailored chinos. The traditional twinset is modernised through the repetition of pattern on dresses, bags and shoes. Saturated colors throughout are especially statement-making in eveningwear and accessories.
