Tommy’s Girl

Zooey Deschanel teams up with Tommy Hilfiger for a capsule collection that perfectly melds her retro style with his all-american appeal.

“This red and blue tennis dress has so many details. I’m really proud of the striped pattern hidden in the pleats, the drop waist and our signature buttons on the shoulder seams.”

For Zooey Deschanel, the doe-eyed New Girl star known for her quirky, vintage-inspired taste, collaborating with designer Tommy Hilfiger was a natural fit. “We started talking at a party in Los Angeles, and just decided to make this collection together,” she says. “I’m so proud of it.” The resulting line, To Tommy, From Zooey, consists of 16 dresses done in Hilfiger’s signature red-white-and-blue palette, with ’60s-style silhouettes and bold prints that are unmistakably Deschanel. “It’s a mix of mod and nautical,” the actress explains, “which I like to call ‘modical!’” Think classic materials like linen, pique and oxford cloth combined with preppy accents such as Peter Pan collars, flap pockets and patterned pleats. A limited selection can be found at Macy’s nationwide, but the full collection, including accessories like studded resin bangles and chain-link purses, is available at Hilfiger’s L.A. flagship on Robertson Boulevard. So what items would Deschanel combine with pieces from her own line? We asked the stylish star to put together the perfect list. 157 N. Robertson Blvd., West Hollywood, 310.247.1475
