Inside Tommy Hilfiger’s NYFW Fall/Winter 2022 Show: Plastic Ponchos, Umbrellas and Travis Barker

The rain fell on Tommy Hilfiger‘s “Tommy Factory” Fall ’22 show on Sunday nights. But a soggy runway didn’t stop the designer’s big comeback at New York Fashion Week as attendees flocked to Brooklyn’s Skyline Drive-In and braved the wet conditions to celebrate Hilfiger.

Inspired by Andy Warhol’s Factory, Hilfiger took over the Skyline Drive-In property with a massive concert-like set that resembled that of a modern pop art studio as the foil-clad track mirrored the bright red, blue and white lights in the rain fog.

And while stars and models managed to stay dry backstage and in repeat tents, fashion week’s most stylish attendees – who congregated outside the tent areas to watch the show in the stadium-like outdoor venue with bleachers — were forced to conceal their NYFW ensembles with plastic ponchos given to guests in an effort to protect them from the showers. Some fashion-savvy attendees refused the plastic covering – not yet ready to give up the street style – and tried to settle for umbrellas and jackets, but as the light rain turned into heavier rain, the umbrellas groped. sea ​​of ​​heads covered in plastic.


Once the kerfuffle of wet spectators made their way up the bleachers with umbrellas and ponchos galore, the show kicked off with a bang. Despite hundreds of ponchos and umbrellas blending into the backdrop of the shimmering Manhattan skyline, Hilfiger thrilled the audience as models walked the rainy runway to a tracklist featuring everything from remixes of Beyonceit is Renaissance at Azealia Banks and Diana Rossjuxtaposed with tape recordings of Warhol, which echoed throughout the booming beats.

Jalin Johnson opened the salon while models including Winnie Harlow, Ashley Graham, and Kate Mossthe daughter of Lilac marched down the runway with the “TH” logo. The veteran model and longtime face of Burberry was a proud mum as she watched Lila from the front row while huddled under a large plastic umbrella she shared with Kourtney Kardashian.

Hilfiger’s show also featured another runway appearance from Julia Foxwho made his NYFW debut by opening the The Quan Smith Fall 22 parade in February. Long duration vanity lounge contributor and former editor of Interview magazine Bob Colacello– known as Warhol’s right-hand man – also participated in the show wearing a Hilfiger varsity bomber jacket.
