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.
"In order for Shudu to wear garments, she needs to be able to put them on, just like you would in the real world. You have to digitize the outfits," said Cameron-James Wilson on dressing 3-D model @shudu.gram for her WWD photoshoot. #wwdfashion ( 📸: @cjw.photo )
“Shudu is a digital supermodel, a very glamour and amazing woman. But she’s 3-D,” says Cameron-James Wilson, a fashion photographer and the creature of @shudu.gram. Here, Shudu wears @cushnieetochs for her debut fashion editorial. #wwdfashion (📷: @cjw.photo)
“It is the fierce female performances that came before me that made be able to clearly identify for myself what it was that I wanted to do, what kind of artist I wanted to be, what kind of films I wanted to make,” said @brielarson at the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards.

“On a personal level, it’s my vision to create a really different idea with their look to be at the epitome of women’s fashion in South Korea – to create a new milestone,” said stylist @chochowon on dressing K-pop’s most fashionable girl group, @blackpinkofficial.

For @ralphlauren, 2018 is a reason to celebrate: It marks the brand’s 50th year in business. Last year’s chauffeured show in Bedford, NY featuring his vintage car collection may have seemed like the big celebration to show-goers, but they were wrong. The official celebration will be held on September 7 during #NYFW. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdfashion (📷: @giovanni_giannoni_photo)
