Supermodel Gigi Hadid and Tommy Hilfiger’s second turn on the catwalk was a preppy and bohemian dream. In February, the see-now, buy-now TOMMY X GIGI collection romped a Venice Beach runway—a seaside strand turned into the ultimate #TommyLand amusement park, fanned with flamethrowers, high-flying rides, and a surprise performance by Fergie. The Montecito/Malibu-raised model/designer made it a family affair, with stunning sister Bella Hadid joining her in the much-hyped fashion fete. More family and friends were front row, including their mother, Yolanda; father, Mohamed; and brother, Anwar (who is also hitting the modeling jackpot these days) as well as Lady Gaga and other Los Angeles A-listers. Gigi and Hilfiger put a twist on each other’s East Coast meets West Coast tastes—think piles of revamped Hilfiger logos mixed in with graphic swimwear, patchwork denim, metallic jackets, and a bevy of boho dresses that closed the show. “It’s a great moment for fashion in California, and we were thrilled to take the show there this season,” says industry icon Hilfiger. “Our Spring 2017 collection is inspired by the casual, cool, chic vibe that’s so signature to California.”

“The collection is inspired by my relaxed Californian lifestyle, fused with Tommy Hilfiger’s signature heritage. It blends the East Coast and the West Coast, and both Tommy and I have put a twist on each other’s sense of style.” – Gigi Hadid
