For Gigi Hadid, fashion design was always going to be in her future. Her latest stint is with American fashion designer, Tommy Hilfiger. Mr Hilfiger said about the collaboration, “it has been a true partnership-Gigi and I worked closely together on each and every element. She was completely involved throughout the process, and the results are a reflection of her passion and creativity”.

The collection includes everyday street-style Hadid staples such as bomber jackets, high-waisted jeans, sweaters, as well as pieces that tap into Hilfiger’s all-American aesthetic, like nautical jackets and printed maxi dresses.

“Creatively speaking, it’s something that is really true to my style-most of the pieces are things that I’d wear all the time. I wanted it to be something that when people look at, they’ll know I was the one who designed it and it’s something I’ll genuinely wear. I’m very happy about it”, Gigi said.

The collection’s official debut will be in September, when Tommy Hilfiger showcases during New York fashion week.
