in god’s love they trust

-------

Fashion showed its charitable spirit on Monday night as Gods Love We Deliver brought boldfacers like Vogue‘s Anna Wintour, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Simon Doonan, and Jonathan Adler to the IAC building for the Second Annual Golden Heart Awards. Over grilled figs, wild mushrooms with black truffles, and short ribs, guests celebrated Harry Slatkin, 7th on Sale, and Roz Gilbert and their generous contributions to the charity, which provides nutritious meals for people living with HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other life-altering illnesses. Tommy Hilfiger presented the award to his old friend Slatkin, who humbly said, “This is a big honor, but it’s really about the 3,000 volunteers that help all year long.” Mayor Bloomberg arrived a half-hour after dinner began—in the midst of a campaign to extend term limits, he presumably has other things on his plate—but he stopped to sing the organization’s praises. “Our company supports them; I think they do great things.”

tommy hilfiger, american icon

-------

Given his myriad incarnations over the years—hip-hop acolyte, reality show enthusiast, lifestyle entrepreneur extraordinaire—Tommy Hilfiger hasn’t always been the easiest man to pin down, sartorially speaking. So how does he see his line these days? “The idea is relaxed American glamour. It’s post-hippie but pre-disco—that cusp when the eighties hadn’t been yet and the seventies hadn’t ended yet,” Hilfiger explained yesterday backstage at Avery Fisher Hall. Muse-wise, the designer envisioned a dizzyingly well-rounded woman for whom excess is gauche and balance is key. “She’s an international woman on the go—someone who’s on a journey, who’s doing something with her life. She likes fashion but she’s not a fashion addict. She doesn’t take herself so seriously.” So how seriously does Hilfiger take his “American icon” status? “I think that my logo—the red, white, and blue flag—is an icon. But,” he paused, “I think that I am going to be an American icon when I die.”
