Tommy and Dee Hilfiger are two names synonymous with style and power. Both are successful entrepreneurs in their own right; Tommy with his namesake empire and Dee with her recently launched collection, DEESIGNS for HSN. The duo have translated the very same labour of love and passion of their businesses into their home, which is a carefully curated, museum-like abode at the iconic Plaza in NYC.
They opened the doors to their lavish Manhattan home for The Coveteur, where they showcased their extensive art collection, including works from Warhol, Basquiat, Keith Haring and Richard Prince. Also on display were Tommy’s expansive collection of Christian Louboutin shoes, which could easily pass for artwork.
The pictures speak for themselves…
The shoes in the middle were a Christmas present from Tommy. I haven’t worn them yet. The other pairs are both Miu Miu. I love that wall of photographs! Marilyn Monroe, Fred Astair, The Rat Pack, Ray Charles… I love old Hollywood! – Dee
My Christian Louboutins – ‘rock and royalty’ – were a birthday gift from Dee. If she can wear Loubs, so can I. They are my favourite. The doors are Keith Haring originals from his own NYC apartment. – Tommy
This is a series of Marilyn photos from the last sitting with Bert Stern. They were a gift from Tommy’s ex-wife and I just love them. I am not really obessed with Marilyn. I see her as more of a tragic figure. It must have been torture to live up to that image all the time. – Dee
I collect books and music by The Stones. We sponsored the “No Security” tour in the 90’s and designed some cool stuff for them. – Tommy
Ring, Alexander McQueen
This is my office at home. The pieces on the left came from the Duke and the Duchess of Windsor’s estate. The tie is tartan – my favourite and the photo is of our children. My office has an original New York Times sign from the original Times building. – Tommy
Shoes, Stubbs & Wootton
Sevan is so incredibly talented. A true artisan. No one else can make rings like that! Wearing these rings reminds me of my Turkish heritage. – Dee
