LOS ANGELES — Tommy Hilfiger views the opening of its flagship on Robertson Boulevard Monday as not just adding another store, but as a relaunch of the brand on the West Coast.
Hilfiger last had a major store here in 2001, when it closed a 20,000-square-foot Rodeo Drive unit, its largest at the time, because of a failure to match the brand’s urban reputation with the luxury positioning of the street. But so much has changed since then: Hilfiger established itself abroad as a formidable lifestyle player, linked with Macy’s, was acquired by PVH Corp. and reignited momentum in the U.S.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
