Gigi Hadid is giving some clever styling inspiration ahead of the swimwear season. On May 23, the model celebrated the launch of her franchise bikini collaboration at a brand store in New York City, wearing one of her own designed pieces. She wears a fun swimwear – a floral blue-and-white one-piece adorned with delicious motifs of deer, fun, and tree stumps – a glamorous nightwear, effortlessly taking off the swimsuit as an outer garment.
Hadid wore the Raphael-trim Mellot as a bodysuit, paired with khaki shade low-rise trousers and a micro-cropped button-down top. For accessories, she added a cream-colored slingback heel, a bright-blue Louis Vuitton clutch and a layer of crystal necklace. The new mother previously shared a print of Cottageco with her daughter, Khai, who is now almost 2 years old, inspired by her journey as a mother.
Hadid first launched his collection on May 11 and the second drop will follow on May 25. She has partnered with Francesca Ilo, a longtime friend and founder of the Frankie Bikini, and designed and published the nostalgic, Americana-inspired line of Hadid’s Pennsylvania family home. And their initial friendship. “Francesca and Gigi grew up together, spending summer days and after school on the sandy beaches of Malibu,” the brand said in a press release. “A complete circle moment for both of them to come together 10 years later to design a collection of swimsuits and loungewear.”
