Gigi Hadid and Tommy Hilfiger team up for a capsule collection coming out in the fall of 2016

Dear fashion lovers, this surely is a reason to celebrate even though the holiday season is over! Gigi Hadid and Tommy Hilfiger team up for a capsule collection named “GiGi by Tommy Hilfiger”.

This piece of news might not come as a great surprise given the fact that the new “Tommy girl” could be seen “rocking” the runway for Tommy Hilfiger alongside with her sister, Bella Hadid, in September 2015, during New York Fashion Week. Gigi Hadid and Tommy Hilfiger will also collaborate for the brand’s womenswear for the fall of 2016 and fragrance.

Although the 20-year-old “It girl” was supposed to become only the brand’s global ambassador it seems like Tommy Hilfiger had a lot more in mind: “Global ambassadorships are a bit overused and not too exciting,” […] “We’re really doing something different. We’re creating a line called Gigi by Tommy Hilfiger, using her style, her sense, her social media presence as the top supermodel in the world today.”

Since her rise to fame, she has dominated the runway for designers like Versace, Balmain, Diane von Furstenberg, Dolce & Gabbana, Moschino, Michael Kors and many more!

She is also British Vogue’s January cover star,  and has a whopping 10 milion followers on her Instagram account.

Despite the fact that she is one of the most loved models, she takes her new  “job” seriously: “I ended up staying an extra five hours the first day.” […]”I think they were surprised I was that into it.”

Speaking of their collaboration Hadid says: “His company is one that I genuinely love and have been a fan of for my entire life, and Tommy is the easiest, most fun person to work with.”

“I have always looked up to his brand, campaigns and design style. I think our collection celebrates the iconic Tommy lifestyle and mixes a bit of everything: there are styles that are really hippie-chic, styles that are sporty streetwear, and styles that are tomboy but girly; everyone is going to love a different part of it.”
