Tommy Hilfiger and Zendaya are providing fans with a first look at their fall ’19 collaboration — and it’s all about the season’s biggest shoe trend: snakeskin.
Prominently featured in the range is the snakeskin boot. Boots are a recurring theme for autumn as temperatures dip, and animal print is everywhere this season. While everything from cheetah to zebra is popular for fall, snakeskin is seemingly everywhere. Python print boots, propelled by Instagram favorite brands like Paris Texas, are appearing in nearly every color imaginable.
Tommy x Zendaya’s range uses snakeskin as a neutral this fall. In terms of shoes, the print can be found on sleek knee-high boots with an almond-shaped toe. Handbags, pants and skirts boast snake-print, too. Leopard — another, ever-popular animal-print neutral — appears in the collection as well.
With regard to footwear, the other major trend being offered by Tommy x Zendaya is the platform pump. A height-boosting style that may remind some of ’70s fashion, the platform made plenty of appearances on fall ’19 runways last season.
Hilfiger is sticking with the see-now, buy-now model for fall ’19, as he has done for the past few seasons. The collection will be made available for purchase on Sept. 8, following the TommyNow show at New York Fashion Week. This year’s show marks Tommy’s first time at New York Fashion Week (NSFW) since 2016, when he first began employing the see-now-buy-now model.
Immediately after the September NYFW show, apparel and accessories straight off the runway will be available for purchase internationally via Tommy.com, select Tommy Hilfiger stores, select wholesale partners and on social media. In the U.S., Nordstrom has exclusive wholesale rights to Tommy x Zendaya; styles will be carried on the retailer’s website and at select Nordstrom locations.
Zendaya and Hilfiger announced their partnership in October 2018 and showed their first collaborative capsule at Paris Fashion Week in February. The cast at the buzzy show consisted entirely of people of color — with star power from Winnie Harlow, Dilone and even Grace Jones.
