The Fall 2013 collections feature three deliveries inspired by the preppy heritage and energetic spirit of the Tommy Hilfiger brand. The first delivery draws inspiration from top golf destinations of the American West, such as Canyon Springs. Pieces include modern golf classics like striped polos and plaid sweaters rendered in blue and white with pops of bright orange. Delivery two incorporates the international vibe of Stockholm, Sweden, with tailored pieces featured in a muted palette of black, heather grey and cobalt with accents of light blue, yellow and lavender inspired by a city at sunrise. The final delivery highlights a jewel tone color palette inspired by autumn foliage and New England's prep school traditions, with burgundy, navy and dark green grounded with touches of yellow and blue.

Key to the collections are designs that incorporate performance fabrics. TH Tech is a 100% polyester fabric used as the foundation for the golf collection to combine style and comfort with moisture wicking capabilities that keep garments dry and provide anti-odor properties essential in a technical garment. TH Comfort Tech is a hybrid cotton fabric that combines style and comfort with the functional properties required in performance driven garments. TH Cotton supplements the performance fabrics to ensure superior quality and comfort.TH Fall 2013 women
