Tommy Hilfiger is looking forward to wearing summer clothes over Christmas.

The US designer - who lives in New York - is spending the festive period in Mustique and he can't wait to don some cool outfits as he's getting fed-up of wrapping up warm for the cold weather.

He said: "The whole family is going to our house in Mustique. It's not your typical snowy White Christmas, but we really enjoy relaxing and visiting with our friends. We go to every year - it's our home away from home."

"I can't wait to wear short sleeves. It's been so cold in New York that I am really looking forward to warm weather."

While he is looking forward to relaxing over Christmas, the 59-year-old fashion mogul recently revealed he has no intention of giving up designing.

He said: "I love the fact that no two days are alike for me. And I love that the collections can be different from the previous season. And you have the ability to invent and create, but still balance it with some logic.

"I also love the visuals. What I learnt is that athletes or models, maybe even actors, can't do what they do for life - but I can do this forever."
