Zooey Deschanel’s line for Tommy Hilfiger is here, and it’s just what we expected: girlie, classic and totally appropriate for her on-screen alter ego Jess Day. And — no surprise for the stylish New Girl star — adding fashion designer to her résumé has always been a dream.
“When I was in high school I made my own clothes and I grew up creating a lot of my own looks,” Deschanel shares. “I would think up patterns myself. Having the opportunity to work on this collection was incredibly fun.”
The line, aptly named “To Tommy from Zooey,” features 16 dresses (priced between $98 and $199 — get a preview below) as well as accessories. “We looked at all of the designs that I’ve been wearing over the past several years and analyzed them. Then we distilled everything down and mixed it with the Tommy DNA to transform it into our own collection of dresses. It’s a mix of mod and nautical, which I like to call ‘modical,’” she says. “There are a lot of great little hidden details, like pleats with unexpected patterns on the inside. There are structured and short pieces and very clean lines. Each piece is very mod and also very American-inspired.” Read More
