The Know: Tommy Hilfiger's Prep House

Did someone just brought the East Hampton to the Meatpacking District in NYC? Why, yes, that would be Tommy Hilfiger.

He and his collaborator, Lisa Birnbach (author of True Prep: It’s a Whole New Old World), is on a mission to spread "prep" in a big way: A global domination sort of way.  This 800 square feet pop-up house will be making its way from city to city showcasing Tommy Hilfiger's 60 piece Prep World collection.  Besides his collection, there will be vintage pieces for sale too.

What an interesting marketing strategy!  Can't wait so see the result.  Hope it comes to Portland!

Do you like these looks? Visit Tommy Hilfiger to view the collection and look at the ways to wear Prep.  I'm loving the old English school bag.  I think Urban Outfitters may still have them.
