Model sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid lead supermodel squad at Fendi during Milan Fashion Week
Model sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid stormed the runway at Fendi’s Milan Fashion Week show on Thursday.
The siblings are fast becoming Fendi’s go-to models, having previously posed together in campaigns as well as walking in past catwalk presentations for the Karl Lagerfeld-helmed fashion house.
Sheer chiffon, fur collars and thigh high red patent boots were utilised for the brand’s fall/winter '17 line. Ladylike tweed was given a modern twist with fur cuff detailing, while a monochrome jacket matched with a vibrant blue skirt popped on the runway.
Lagerfeld also showcased a new take on fur, adding prints and patterns to both cropped and long fur jackets.
Stella Maxwell walked in the show too, wearing a chunky knitted sweater as a dress, which featured cut out detailing in the pattern to reveal black underwear underneath. The jumper was paired with the show’s striking signature red boots.
Binx Walton showed off a sleeveless brown version of Stella’s top, and was followed not long after by Kendall Jenner wearing pillar box red from top to toe. As well as the red boots, she wore a calf length red coat, finished with red fur around the wrists and a red shoulder bag,
Bella wore a version of the coat later on, this time in black and paired with a sharp white shirt worn with nothing else but the red boots. Gigi showed off glamorous evening wear in a chiffon sleeved black jacket that featured a fur collar, over a floaty black dress.
Earlier in the day Max Mara kicked off day two, opting for strong block colours in its presentation. While the brand opted for a palette of rich red, bronzy brown, greys, black and golden beige, the shades weren’t worn with each other – rather whole outfits were made up of the same colour.
The theme of the collection was a sleek take on workwear, with tailored jackets and trousers combined with chunky knits, and pencil skirts worked well with sporty roll neck sweaters.
Pointed court shoes adorned the feet of every model, adding to the high end office vibe.
As seen on previous catwalks at both London and New York Fashion Weeks, drawstrings were also used, signalling that the trend for athleisure wear is set to continue, though in a more subtle way. The use of velvet added a richness to the show, as did the sumptuous yet sleek, heavy winter coats.
Emilio Pucci, Prada and Moschino are all set to show later on Thursday.
