Just in time for NY Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011, Tommy Hilfilger by Assouline Books

By Laura Medina

On New York's Fashion's Night Out this Friday, September 10th, the man of the hour is going to be fete'd at Assouline Publishing-Tommy Hilfilger.
If you want to be ambiguous, you can Mr. Hilfilger popularized the All-Americana look but if you want to be precise, he gave the Upper-crust American Preppy Style some street cred by adjusting the tailoring then injecting it with the emerging hip-hop movement.
He made it diversified.
Now, Assouline is going to toast him as the man of the night. What is better than a person personify Urban Americana than Tommy Hilfilger.
This hefty tome explored Tommy when he first sold hippy rock n' roll clothes to the man we now know today for making conservative classics like striped polos and chinos hip with an edge.
A great encapsulation of a career, a company, and man.
