Tommy Hilfiger is a very busy man. His exclusive partnership with Macy’s kicked off this week, feted by a huge event Tuesday that also celebrated the launch of his new fragrance. His women’s business is up 60 percent from last year, and he has a string of upcoming store openings, including a Fifth Avenue flagship. Then there's the TV show, reuniting with his Harley-Davidson and, of course, his fashion show Thursday.
WWD: What are your inspirations for the spring collection? Tommy Hilfiger: I thought it would be great to do relaxed American glamour. It’s reminiscent of Jack Nicholson and Anjelica Huston in the early Eighties. I wanted to do a remix of old values into new conditions of American sportswear.
WWD: What are you trying to convey through the show this year?
T.H.: The big idea for me is really about that easy glamour, not glitzy glamour. It’s chic and sophisticated and the proportions are a little fuller — more of a wholesome glamour.

“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
