Zooey Deschanel For Tommy Hilfiger… It’s Happening

Zooey Deschanel is about to put her love of classic retro fashion to good use with her brand new capsule collection for Tommy Hilfiger. Too. Exciting.

The 34-year-old New Girl star has joined the US label’s design team to dream up 16 gorgeous 60s-inspired dresses, each of which will be named after one of Zooey’s friends (how cool?!).

Zooey’s famed for her love of flirty, feminine red carpet frocks and off-duty vintage style – and by the sounds of it, the actress’s Hilfiger collection will be a perfect reflection of her signature style.

‘They are Sixties-inspired short dresses,’ Hilfiger told WWD. There is a lot of red, white and blue, but done in a Zooey way with interesting detail and flirty fabrics.’

‘They are very Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy – really from the Sixties in London’, he continued. ‘That’s not something we would normally put in our regular sportswear line – maybe we’d be inspired by the Sixties for the runway, but it’s a new way to look at fun, American classics.’

‘I am a fashion fanatic, and I am always looking for new ways to incorporate vintage, feminine pieces into my own wardrobe’, Zooey told WWD.

‘Tommy and I share many of the same inspirations – old-school music, classic films and old Hollywood icons – and his guidance during the design process helped to put a really unique twist on each piece.’

The dresses will range from $98 to $199 and will be stocked in Macy’s from April 14 and online at Tommy.com from April 21.
