LOS ANGELES, Jan. 27 (UPI) -- Zooey Deschanel is going to mass produce her vintage-meets-quirky style.

The 34-year-old New Girl star has teamed up with Tommy Hilfiger to create a capsule collection dubbed "To Tommy, From Zooey."

The collection will consist of 16 retro-inspired dresses that will be available at Tommy.com starting April 21. Fourteen of the dresses will be available at 200 Macy's stores on April 14.

“I am a fashion fanatic, and I am always looking for new ways to incorporate vintage, feminine pieces into my own wardrobe,” the actress said. “Tommy and I share many of the same inspirations -- old-school music, classic films and old Hollywood icons -- and his guidance during the design process helped to put a really unique twist on each piece.”

The garments will come in Hilfiger's typical red, white and blue color palette and will feature Deschanel's iconic retro charm. The dresses will range in price from $98 to $199.

“They are Sixties-inspired short dresses,” Hilfiger said of the line. “There is a lot of red, white and blue, but done in a Zooey way with interesting detail and flirty fabrics. They are very Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy -- really from the Sixties in London. That’s not something we would normally put in our regular sportswear line -- maybe we’d be inspired by the Sixties for the runway, but it’s a new way to look at fun, American classics.”
