When Tommy Hilfiger tapped Peter Som to freshen up his collection last fall, it seemed a match made in heaven---and after the brand's universally-lauded Spring 2011 collection bowed last night, it seems only fair to give Som a portion of the props, non? Chic caught up with the designer at Tommy's epic 25th anniversary bash for a few words of congratulations.

We loved it! How did you and Tommy develop the collection?
I talked to Tommy about what he thought was quintessential about the collection, and we came about this sort of country club with a twist. Funny, quirky, preppy---but sensible all-America. That's where we started.

What would you give Tommy for his 25th anniversary?
Tommy doesn't need anything; he's got this amazing, successful company and everyone loves him!

Will you be doing this collection for the next 25 years?
Let me drink to that!
