9 Things to Know About Tommy Hilfiger’s Fall 2016 Show With Gigi Hadid

Tommy Hilfiger revealed his collaboration with Gigi Hadid on Friday during New York Fashion Week, presenting the in-season collection in a fun fair-style set on Pier 16 at the South Street Seaport. The setting surely matched the nautical-themed collection that drew on both Hadid’s personal style and Hilfiger’s classics. While you wait for Chioma Nnadi’s full review of the affairs, get the shorthand version of events—including a Taylor Swift appearance—below.

1. Tommy x Gigi took over Pier 16 in Lower Manhattan, turning the space into a full-blown carnival with rides, temporary tattoo booths, and cotton candy machines, which guests enjoyed post-show.

5. From there, models of the moment, including Hailey Baldwin, Taylor Hill, Vittoria Ceretti, Imaan Hammam, Hanne Gaby Odiele, and Lineisy Montero took to the catwalk in nautical-inspired apparel.

6. The collection ranged from the more street-wise styles Hadid favors (read: statement jackets and slim trousers) to looks of the moment (oversize hoodies and thigh-high stockings) to Hilfiger classics (logo tees and tracksuits).

7. Models were done up in Hadid’s image, with natural hair and bare faces, save for a blur of highlighters across their cheekbones.

8. Hadid and Hilfiger led a pack of models to take their bow, the former stopping along the way to mouth “I love you!” to Swift, while the latter paused to hug his family.

9. After the show ended, guests went hard on the fair-themed fun; the Tornado ride a particular point of interest.
