For someone with such a distinct sense of style (and one that's pretty universally flattering), it's a sheer wonder that Zooey Deschanel has gone this long in her diverse career without creating her own clothing line. Thank goodness Tommy Hilfiger got involved.
The designer teamed up with the New Girl star to produce her very first capsule collection, "To Tommy, From Zooey." The collaboration — which features 16 dresses from $98 to $199 and a selection of jewelry and handbags — perfectly combines Deschanel's retro-girly sensibility with the Hilfiger heritage palette of reds, whites, and blues.
"I am a fashion fanatic, and I am always looking for new ways to incorporate vintage, feminine pieces into my own wardrobe," she said. "Tommy and I share many of the same inspirations — old-school music, classic films, and old Hollywood icons — and his guidance during the design process helped to put a really unique twist on each piece."
Another unique twist? The star coined the term "modical" to describe the lineup of all-American nautical touches with crisp, mod shapes that channel the 1960s. Think flirty fabrics and short hems made famous by Twiggy and the graphic impact of colorblock prints.
The collection, which launched today, is available online and at Macy's and select Tommy Hilfiger stores. See every look from the campaign, and then shop your favorites, below!
