Scene setting: For S/S 2016, Tommy Hilfiger took us to paradise by recreating a decadent jaunt to Jamaica and Mustique on one of Manhattan's waterfront piers. Complete with a boardwalk, pastel coloured sunset, a bay of water, a rustic rowboat and even a beach bar, the impressive set immediately slowed the pace of things down to an island-life lull.

Mood board: Mixing the Caribbean's bohemian beach style with the glamour that accompanies its visiting rock stars, royalty and trustafarians, Hilfiger's collection reinterpreted its mainstays, such as stripes and denim with refreshing flair. Chambray shirts and shirt dresses adopted tented silhouettes for a relaxed, holiday-friendly feel, while stripes took the form of low slung trousers, knitted dresses and netted tank tops in a vibrant palette of yellow, green and maroon.

Best in show: Tommy Hilfiger is mostly known for its youthful, flirty aesthetic, but this collection saw the appearance of several trouser suits, including a boxy pyjama style, slinky track-inspired, and a louche blazer and trouser combo, with silhouettes that hung low on the hips, which were understated yet undeniably sexy.
