Tommy Hilfiger x Gigi: Launch of the NEW capsule collection

Gigi Hadid is admittedly one of my favourite fashionistas at the moment. Her effortless style is not only edgy and cool but gives me real clothes envy as to how well she pulls off absolutely everything she wears.

When I saw her most recent collaboration with one of my all-time favourite American brands, Tommy Hilfiger I literally couldn’t load their website fast enough.  As Tommy say, Gigi really is the definition of today’s Tommy Girl, from her style to her magnetic personality she is always bright and optimistic, which teamed with her confidence gives Gigi the power of the fresh take on the irreverent attitude that Tommy Hilfiger stands for.

One of the reasons that Tommy is a favourite American brand of mine is because, at the heart of the Hilfiger empire, it’s those wearing clothes that really matter. From a smart shirt to a cashmere sweater. A pair of leather boots to an invaluable tote bag there are literally thousands of ways to style your look to create a convention-breaking individuality, which of course the gorgeous Gigi embodies.

The new collection #TOMMYNOW #TOMMYXGIGI catches the attention of many through the choice of textiles and patterns. With Gigi speaking to the modern millennial-minded woman, like myself and my age group, who are now not just a number but a mindset, a voice, a wave. So there is no better time for Tommy to partner with Gigi to create something that can only do good and create momentum.

With the notion that together Gigi and Tommy will build a community of ambassadors to not only inspire women but to share their worldly stories and gain real inspiration from real people.

As I scrolled through the new collection and continually added items to my basket I fell more and more in love with virtually every single item (I’m a sucker like that!), however, my top picks from the collection are undoubtedly these three.

This military-style trench is perfect for the changing season, the double-breasted design gives that gorgeous luxe feel whilst the striped cuffs and shearling collar adds that edgy military feel. The Olive Night colour can be teamed with an array of different palettes including this season’s hottest colour as depicted by Pantone’s, Sharkskin Grey and of course a Kardashian favourite, nudes.

Moving from land to sea, a tribute to our forces, this collection channels both military and naval themes and here at Elle Blonde we are lusting for this playful nautical vest complete with an anchor and rope, subtly showing off the GH brand. At a cool £45, this is a versatile piece that can be dressed up for a night on the tiles or can be dressed down for a light lunch with the girls.

Whatever the occasion, though, this is an Instagram-worthy item! Make sure you drop the #TOMMYNOW and #TOMMYXGIGI hashtags too! We absolutely love the pairing with the super-luxe quilted pants and capsule Cotton Band Jacket, which again channels the nautical vibe with stripes and vertical darts.

The final pick from Elle Blonde from the collection is, well come on we’ve had land and sea, so in homage let us now head up into the air with these gorgeous tortoiseshell Aviators available in gold and pink. Don’t you agree Gigi looks every inch the runway star she is in these beauties? Summer may be over but you’re never fully dressed without some shades, they’re essential for people watching outside with a warm cup of cocoa.
