The music at this evening's Tommy Hilfiger show was perfectly good. Catchy, even. But it does seem a bit of a shame that the brand didn't commission, say, a house remix of that old Christopher Cross earworm "Sailing," or a hip-hop mash-up featuring Boston's "Come Sail Away." It would have been obvious, but that's the point: Hilfiger and his team weren't exactly playing coy with the nautical references this season. Indeed, they seemed to be taking a great deal of pleasure in making big and lively interpretations of sailcloth, stripes, and fisherman knits, among other staples of the seafaring look. Women will have fun with these looks, too—in particular, the oversize red, white, and blue suit jackets, slouchy patchwork denim, and swinging tent dresses boasting sexy open backs. And many of the pieces here benefited from unexpected finishes, such as the boxy navy-striped sailor's tee, with a slick, stiff coating of wax. There were a few off notes: The pinkish khakis, for instance, would have been better without the rather mannered discoloration, and the beige cabled sweaters were oddly proportioned and seemed a little out of place. All in all, however, this was a punchy collection offering a cheerful take on Americana.
