CNN’s Fashion: Backstage Pass visits Tommy Hilfiger in his Plaza Hotel penthouse

September 22, 2012/16.02

CNN’s Alina Cho interviews Tommy Hilfiger at his Plaza Hotel penthouse apartment in New York. The apartment, which covers 6,000 ft² and two storeys, features art from Warhol (whom Hilfiger knew personally), Basquiat and Haring, and a view of Central Park.
   The home, described as ‘palatial’, is owned by the designer, who in 2010 sold his business for $3,000 million. He remains principal designer.
   ‘My idea in the future would be to build Tommy Hilfiger Home fully, with anything and everything from furniture to tabletop. And we’re working on that now,’ he says.
   ‘We really wanted to go back to the way the Plaza was in the beginning when Truman Capote had the black and white ball.’
   It’s only one of three homes. Hilfiger and his wife, Dee, own homes in Greenwich, Conn., and one called Palm Beach in Mustique.
   The special, as part of Fashion: Backstage Pass, sees Cho interview designers one on one. Other episodes feature Diane von Fürstenberg, Zac Posen (one of his first interviews was here at Lucire), Patrick Pope (a.k.a. P’Trique) and Ewan McGregor.
   The Hilfiger episode airs on CNN International Saturday, September 22 at 5.30 a.m., 1.30 p.m. and 7.30 p.m. BST, and on Sunday, September 23 at 7.30 a.m. and 12.30 p.m. BST.
