When Tommy Hilfiger says "they are '60s-inspired short dresses," it may seem like he's just referring to a large chunk of Zooey Deschanel's closet. But, in fact, the iconic American designer is talking about his upcoming capsule collection with the New Girl star.
As reported in WWD today, the partnership came about when Deschanel met Hilfiger at a party. "Somehow, the conversation went from loving vintage to possibly doing a capsule collection with her." And, as of this spring, the resulting line — featuring 16 dresses — will officially be available in Macy's stores and on the Tommy Hilfiger website.
While Deschanel's preppy, vintage-inspired style has become part of her quirky (yes, some even say adorkable) charm, the celebrity's first foray in designing for a mass market is definitely something to look forward to. The dresses are not too fussy or frilly, but they do have a feminine, mod-inspired, Americana vibe that's quite appealing (the colors are primarily red, white, and blue).
The "To Tommy, From Zooey" collection — priced from $98 to $199 — makes its debut on April 14. Click through to check out some of the dresses, along with sketches of the perfectly illustrated Deschanel sporting her signature bangs and all. (WWD)
