For those who can’t get enough of this the too-good-to-be-true, all-rounder and all-good-looking millennial model Gigi Hadid, you’ve come to the right place. The successful model just unveiled a capsule collection for Tommy Hilfiger — which makes her not just model and global brand ambassador, but also designer in this collaborative Fall 2016 collection, called TommyXGigi, and if you’re a fan of her effortlessly chic street style, you’ll find everything you love here.
The collection’s a diverse round-up of apparel, footwear and accessories, meant to “celebrate Hadid’s unique take on modern style, fused with Hilfiger’s signature “classic American cool” heritage”, and we do see those elements everywhere. The first few lookbook images feature strong nautical vibes, be it a long navy coat, sailor stripes, naval badges and embellishments, and a flared top, but these are paired with clean and versatile cuts that make it just as New York City-chic. Many of the pieces are paired with pants, high-waisted, denim, leather or otherwise, which plays up on her casual Cali style.
We’re also eyeing the bomber jacket, flared jeans and cable-knits, very on point nowadays. Other than the sporty-chic silhouettes you’d love to be touting on the streets, there’s also a bit of feminine chiffon dresses thrown into the mix, in the same navy colourway to blend in with the primarily blue, cream and black shades of the collection.
“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, she tell Vogue.
The TommyXGigi collection’s global premiere on the runway will take place on September 9 at New York Fashion Week, and if you’d like to see more, there’s an all-new Instagram account @tommyxgigi set up that shows behind-the-scenes shots of the collaboration.
TommyXGigi will be available to purchase at tommy.com and at the Tommy Hilfiger 5th Avenue flagship store in New York City from September 9; beginning September 10 it will be available at all Tommy Hilfiger stores globally and at select wholesale partners.
