TOMMY HILFIGER’S LATEST GLOBAL AMBASSADOR ZENDAYA IS LAUNCHING HER SECOND CAPSULE COLLECTION – AND IT’S SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT.
February 2019 saw Zendaya launch her very first clothing collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger, the TOMMYXZENDAYA capsule collection. The collection was well-received by many of the fashion elite and The New York Times even reported that Tommy’s “secret weapon was Zendaya.” That initial buzz never seemed to die and in no time people began anticipating the next collection. Well, good news, because Zendaya’s second Fall 2019 collection is almost here and our Fashion Editor Laura got a sneak peek and gave us the inside scoop!
If you haven’t heard of Zendaya by this time, you’ve most likely been living under a rock. Zendaya is a 23-year-old American actress who has been taking over Hollywood one film at a time. In the last year, The Greatest Showman which she co-starred in was nominated for three Golden Globes, she played Spiderman’s love interest and has become the new ambassador for Lancôme. One of those television roles was playing Rue Bennett in Euphoria, the drama series which took over the summer. In Europhia you see Zendaya play a 17-year-old recovering drug addict who always seems to don a maroon hoodie. So if you were expecting the Tommy Hilfiger collection to be as lax as her character Rue, you couldn’t be more wrong.
The first TOMMYXZENDAYA collection debuted at Paris Fashion Week and was heavily inspired by seventies silhouettes and female empowerment. This time around, Zendaya has still kept to the late-seventies to early-eighties style but focused strongly on tailoring and power dressing. The TOMMYXZENDAYA Autumn 2019 collection will be shown during New York Fashion Week at the Apollo Theater on the 8th September 2019, 8:30pm DST (9th September, 1:30am GMT)
