to TOMMY from, EH.

Eh, as in the sound. Usually accompanied by a slight shrug.

I was very excited when I first learned that Zooey Deschanel was to collaborate with Tommy Hilfiger on a collection of dresses. She’s adorable, seems to have a distinct sort of adorable-but-not-cutesy/retro-without-cheesy fashion sense. It’s a good balance and seems to reflect her excited and bubbly personality. [This personality-knowledge is based on my super not-close relationship with her. Full disclosure.] Perhaps since that was my starting reference, or perhaps because I was expecting something else, I found the collection to be rather underwhelming. Boo. 😦

It’s nice, certainly wearable. I think a few of the dresses would definitely be compliment targets, however, it’s not a rack of dress you see and instantly fall in love with. At least I didn’t. To each his own! That is the beauty of fashion, after all. What are your thoughts?

Oh wait, I did love one thing, the NAME. “to TOMMY from ZOOEY” Okay come on, see THAT is wonderful! I would have liked to see that personality better reflected in the dresses.

You can see the full collection HERE

PS – Maybe not the FULL collection… Either that or I forgot how to use the internet. The dress that Zooey is pictured wearing doesn’t seem to be in the buyable collection? So maybe there’s more? Hmmm

Always,

  1. It’s like Tommy Hilfiger said “ok so zooey, you can use red, navy and white with a nautical theme. So let your creativity shine!”

  2. Pretty sure Zooey can do better than this. I’m not a big fan of Tommy Hilfiger; I feel like his conservative preppy style is holding her potential back. I give this collection a solid “bleh.”

    • Could be. This is her first experiment with designing, right? Could also just be her testing the waters a bit with something that is a safe department-store buy. Although I’m guessing that wasn’t her decision, really.
