From the Paper:"Tommy has now become more centered on the younger customer. This new line is going to be aimed at 20-30 year olds and reasonably priced. Tommy knits will sell for $24 to $59, denim will go for $69 to $129 and outerwear will start at $129 for men and $139 for women. The collection will be sourced through Li& Fung Ltd and manufactured in the United States, Asia, India and Mexico. The Tommy stores are not intended to compete with their exclusive sportswear collection for men, women's and children's for Macy's which is correspondingly priced (Lockwood, 2010).
"The Tommy collection has no logos but bears signature details which give it a more hand-made feel. The women's line, ranges from black wool shorts and chunky cable-knit wool cardigans to denim jackets and black strapless sequin dresses. Accessories, such as chunky necklaces, knit hats, watches, belts, luggage and footwear, are also displayed. The merchandise is intended so that one can buy an outfit in a conventional way or in an edgier way. There's a lot of experimentation with fabrics, washes and displays. It gives them the occasion to identify with the young consumer again. Tommy as a brand is all about color and pattern and a quirky sense of humor. These things all play a role in store design and the clothing. The new Tommy stores all have drapes that are hand-made, and have a mix of contemporary with vintage, generating an entertaining setting for young women and men (Lockwood, 2010)."
