In a double whammy in Tommy Hilfiger-related news today, the brand will soon court the young ladies' market with the label's signature prep worldliness and also say bye-bye to the experimental youth-oriented Tommy shops. So first things first, the Tommy Girl line, aimed at bringing youthful prep to the covetable pre-teen and teen girls' market, will launch at Macy's here and throughout the US in July. The pricing of the line will make budget minded parents happy, with costs ranging from $32 for tees to $129 for outerwear. As for the "downtown prep"-ster Tommy outpost at 375 Bleecker Street, well, that will revert back into a traditional Tommy Hilfiger shop later this month. [WWD, subscription req'd]
