H Hilfiger: No, there was no live band, but Tommy Hilfiger’s new H Hilfiger collection doesn’t need one. In the calm of his showroom on Tuesday, Hilfiger presented a terrific collection, one sure to become an anchor of the burgeoning “better better” category that’s suddenly all the rage among the designer set. Here, Hilfiger is going for a career focus, clearly distinguishing H from the more casual “Tommy Flag Hilfiger,” as the original line is referred to in-house. To that end, he provided all of the building blocks essential for a pulled-together look — trenches, jackets, sleek skirts — but with a relaxed attitude. “It will be slightly younger [than the competition],” he said, “and casual career, because young women today dress casually for work.”
