Gigi Hadid has unveiled a first look at her upcoming collaborative collection with Tommy Hilfiger.
“This is the first collection I’ve ever co-designed, so it will always be very special to me,” Hadid told Vogue.com of the collaboration, which captures the Californian supermodel’s warm and sunny vibe. “Creatively speaking, it’s something that’s really true to my style—most of the pieces are things I would wear all the time. I wanted it to be something that when people look at it, they know I was the one who designed it and that it’s something I would genuinely wear. I’m very happy about it.”
The collection includes Hadid staples like bomber jackets and high-waisted jeans, as well as pieces more in tune with Hilfiger’s well-known Americana spirit like nautical jackets and flowing maxi dresses. “I think it was taking the iconic American feeling of Tommy Hilfiger and putting my own twist on it,” said Hadid. “It’s still young and fun, still very Tommy, and very me!”
Hilfiger's partnership with Hadid will be revealed at the designer’s show at New York Fashion Week this September, and follows previous successful collabs with everyone from Urban Outfitters to Zooey Deschanel.
Meanwhile, Rita Ora and adidas Originals just got kaleidoscopic on a rebellious FW16 collection.
