SOM MOVE: Could Peter Som be heading to Tommy Hilfiger? According to sources, Hilfiger has been in discussions with Som to bring in the designer on a part-time creative consultant basis. Few details could be learned, and officials at Som and Hilfiger couldn’t be reached for comment. As far back as 2007, Hilfiger told WWD he was looking for a creative director, and at the time, was speaking to Miguel Adrover, among others. Som has been rebuilding his own line after leaving Bill Blass, where he was creative director of women’s, last year, and ending the relationship between him and his then-backer, Lord & Taylor subsidiary Creative Design Studios. He has since inked a licensing deal with Milan-based clothing manufacturer Margon and New York multiline showroom ADC.
