From Runway to High Street: Tommy Hilfiger gets Frugal

Because we only really have one stand-alone designer boutique on Grafton Street, whenever the new season runway collection drops at Tommy Hilfiger I try to get a peek. I went in yesterday for just that reason and found a collection that was all about nautical styling and candy-pink tailoring.

I really liked the ‘Gisella ‘silk vest / tank tops in Navy, white and pale pink with gold trim. Amazingly they are €119, which is an incredible price for a top that you could happily wear forever.

That’s not the only frugal fashion in-store, while I was there I got talking to one of the sales girls, (as happens when you start taking photos in a clothes shop). She was telling me about this dress:

She told me that because of the massive response the dress got when the collection was shown in New York Fashion week last year, the company decided to make it more accessible. After a few tweaks and dropping the price by around €300, they incorporated the dress into their regular womenswear collection. I think it’s a great idea, plus they actually have the newly reduced-in-price dress in the Grafton Street store. It’s priced at €180 so I tried it on. It’s on a very rare occasion that I am able to try on a dress from a current runway collection with the possibility that I could buy it afterwards.

To buffer the startling differences that result from both myself and a supermodel wearing the same dress I shall post a picture of it hanging awkwardly on the hanger in-store between the too:

I should have put shoes on to take the pic but I had my ever trusty boots on and it really wasn’t the best combination.
