Designer Tommy Hilfiger stopped by Berlin’s KaDeWe department store recently to sign bottles of his new men’s fragrance, Hilfiger (from the EstéeLauder Cos. Inc.’s Aramis and Designer Fragrances division), and to give out autographed photos to a line of more than 100 fans, and spritz the press with his new scent.
The idea behind the new eau de toilette, said Hilfiger, is “freedom and the open road,” and he added that it reflects what he called the brand’s broadening appeal beyond the youth crowd.
Hilfiger, who told the enthusiastic audience his family has roots in Bavaria, was in Germany to receive the nod for fashion at the BAMBI Awards, the country’s biggest media prize, on Nov. 27 in Offenburg. Other BAMBI 2008 winners included Placido Domingo, Meg Ryan and Britney Spears.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
