Tommy Hilfiger’s new Jamaican inspired collection

Something must be in the air, as so many fashionistas are turning to the iconic 1970s Caribbean for inspiration – made most iconic by musician such as Bob Marley and Jimmy Cliff.

To inject a little of the 70s into your style game, check out some of designer Tommy Hilfiger’s latest Jamaican inspired pieces from his Spring/Summer 2016 presentation at the recent New York Fashion Week.

Mesh Marina

Originally made as a Norwegian hygienic undershirt, mesh marina has long been a style staple for rude boys everywhere, emerging as outwear by the 70s.

Crochet Pieces

Best in bright colors, crochet swimwear has long been a staple for every beach-going Caribbean gal, whatever decade. But today’s elaborate crochet patterns and modern cutouts makes this old favorite all the more new.


The slim, two-strip track suit may be most associated with 1980s rap and hip-hop a la Run DMC, but no one wore a footballer suit better than Bob Marley dribbling in his backyard. The 70s tracksuit is streamlined and in earth tones, and can be styled as the ultimate relaxed look, or dressed up to the nines.
