The '70s were back in a big way last Saturday night when Tommy Hilfiger and Zendaya debuted their much-hyped, retro-inspired collaboration at Paris Fashion Week. By all accounts, the show—a 1,000-plus-guest affair at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées—was a tour de force, featuring a diverse cast of models in all shapes, sizes, and ages.

There was some serious star power both on the runway-turned-roller rink and in the audience in the form of models Pat Cleveland (an original 1973 Battle of Versailles model), Beverly Johnson (the first black woman to cover American Vogue), Winnie Harlow, and Jourdan Dunn, and guests like Black-ish's Yara Shahidi, former Tommy Hilfiger collaborator Gigi Hadid, Janelle Monae, and Luka Sabbat. None other than Grace Jones—who is somehow 70 years old?!—closed the show, solidifying its place in legendary runway history.

Zendaya's stylist Law Roach also collaborated on the collection, which is a groovy, glamorous ode to the days of disco and the trail-blazing women who set the scene. It's full of shiny satin, glittering metallics, rainbow stripes, and throwback patterns (think Glen plaid and trippy, multicolored zodiac prints) set to the tune of ultra-flared pants, belted skirts, and structured jackets. The collection's sexiness, found in plunging bodysuits and slinky wrap dresses, is tempered by a tomboyish feel through preppy polos and a keen focus on fine tailoring.

Best of all, you don't need to go to Paris—or even New York—to find it: Tommy x Zendaya is available in the Galleria Nordstrom, one of just five of the department stores to stock the collection, straight off the runway.

The designers' emphasis on inclusivity—both via flattering cuts and multigenerational models—continues in price-point: Everything is under $500 (when was the last time that happened on a Paris runway?), and most pieces hover between $100 and $200. Take a look at some of the collection above, or head over to the Galleria (godspeed) and take advantage of being part of the country's lucky few to gain in-person access.
