what Hilfiger gave Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week on Monday
at the Park Avenue Armory on Manhattan’s East Side for
his 30th anniversary collection. The cavernous space was
transformed into a football field, complete with field
posts, scoreboard and a Jumbotron that captured all of
the action from the front row (celebrity sightings!) and
around the makeshift stadium.
it was game — or, in this case, show — time, models
stomped onto the field from an entrance labeled
"locker room" and strutted from one end zone

clothes mimicked this spirited all-American, athletic
flavor with sporty-chic bomber jackets, leather
jersey-style dresses, over-sized scarves, cozy popcorn
sweaters, smart peacoats, a peppering of plaids and
wedged lace-up "football boots." More playful
pieces were complemented by some softer ones, including
a smattering of pieced skirt and crepe dresses in rich
autumnal tones like burgundy and navy.

ran out, helmet in hand, to wave to fans and family. The
collection was, indeed, a touchdown!
