Tommy Hilfiger and Lewis Hamilton recruited many famous faces to model their latest designs at London Fashion Week on Sunday.

The American designer unveiled his fourth collection in partnership with the Formula One driver, as well as their capsule collection with musician H.E.R., at the TOMMYNOW Spring 2020 show held at the Tate Modern in London on Sunday night, with celebrity guests including Billy Porter, Charli XCX, and Meghan Trainor.

The show featured a diverse, age, and size-inclusive mix of models from both sides of the Atlantic, ranging from ’90s British favourites Jodie Kidd, Yasmin Le Bon, and Erin O’Connor to newcomers such as Halima Aden, Alton Mason, and Jasmine Sanders. Other U.K. faces included Jourdan Dunn, Georgia May Jagger, and Karen Elson, while international models included Winnie Harlow, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Candice Swanepoel.

The famous faces on the runway vastly outnumbered those sitting front row, with the show also featuring celebrity relatives such as Helena Christensen and Norman Reedus’ son Mingus, Kate Moss’ sister Lottie, Liam Gallagher’s son Lennon, Bob Geldof’s daughter Pixie, and Christy Turlington’s nephew James.

The genderless ‘See Now, Buy Now’ collection was the most sustainable TommyxLewis release to date, with 75 per cent of the line using more sustainable production methods, including organic cotton, recycled fabric, and low-impact denim washes.

Naomi Campbell opened the show wearing a neon yellow and beige tracksuit with chunky high-top sneakers. A number of streetwear looks followed, before the collection focused on preppy outfits heavily featuring nautical stripes and the stars and stripes of the U.S. flag, with Ambrosio wearing a crisp navy blue blazer over the top of a white and blue striped shirt, worn as a dress, and a white jumper.

Hamilton linked arms with Campbell as he walked down to the catwalk with Hilfiger and H.E.R. to give the final bow.

“Thanks to @thomasjhilfiger, @hermusicofficial, all my amazing models including @naomi and of course to everyone at @tommyhilfiger,” he wrote on Instagram. “It’s been such a journey to create our most sustainable collection to date, but it’s something I’m so proud that we’ve been able to achieve. Feeling very grateful for all our hard work today.”

London Fashion Week continues on Monday with presentations from Burberry, JW Anderson, and Erdem.

Arizona Muse and Yasmin Le Bon have posed with their children in Alberta Ferretti’s latest sweater campaign.

The Italian designer recently launched her third capsule collection in collaboration with the sustainability organisation Eco-Age, with the pieces made from either organic or recycled cashmere.

The line is themed around the subject of love, and accordingly, Ferretti’s sweaters are emblazoned with slogans such as, “It’s a wonderful world”, “Love me”, “Every day is an adventure”, “Live your dream”, and “Don’t forget to love”.

Yasmin and her eldest daughter Amber are featured in the star-studded ad campaign, along with Arizona and her son Nikko, Italian model/actress Elisa Sednaoui and her mother Anna, and actress Carolina Crescentini and her friend Alice Palazzi.

Regarding the collection, Ferretti told Vogue.com she hopes her 100 per cent natural cashmere sweaters will serve as a touching reminder of “how important it is to love not just the people around us, but also the environment and land.”

Acknowledging that there is a lot of work to do to ensure that the fashion industry becomes sustainable and eco-friendly, the 69-year-old designer is now dedicated to producing all of her clothing collections are locally and ethically produced.

“We remain faithful to the traditions of Italy, while always looking to the future and new industry needs. I don’t believe this initiative of mine alone can save the world. But I am convinced that fashion is a great means of communication that (can send) strong messages in a direct, authoritative manner in every country and culture,” she explained.

Raf Simons paid tribute to Jaws in his Calvin Klein 205W39NYC spring/summer 2019 presentation.

The American fashion house is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and its latest collection was unveiled to the likes of celebrities such as Naomi Campbell, Jeff Goldblum and Millie Bobby Brown on Tuesday night (11Sep18). Held at the New York Stock Exchange, ambience was created through a floor-to-ceiling projection of the water in the 1975 Spielberg film as models, including Yasmin Le Bon and Kaia Gerber, walked across a blood-red carpet.

T-shirts and vest tops plastered with images of the famous shark was updated with the fashion house’s CK logo, while Simons also paid homage to the film by dressing models in tight black wetsuits, paired with feminine pleated skirts and broad-shouldered oversized blazers, while others showcased the signature red beanie cat worn by Roy Scheider’s character Martin Brody. The beach setting was further captured as the models showcased dripping wet hair and carried brightly coloured oxygen cannisters.

Simons, who has previously referenced films such as The Shining and Carrie in his collections, told The Guardian that Jaws was an important film to him “because it is about so much more than a shark … I think it’s a masterpiece.”

In addition, the 50-year-old also paid tribute to another of his favourite movies, The Graduate.

The 1960s aesthetic was apparent through garments like kitten heels and printed dresses, while Mike Nicholls’ 1967 masterpiece was more obviously emulated by the inclusion of chic looking graduation gowns thrown over relaxed floaty silhouettes, while traditional black mortar boards were also frequently featured throughout the collection.

Explaining his attraction to both movies, Simons told American Vogue, “disasters happen but they turn again into beauty, and beauty is around us and it can oftentimes turn into disaster.”

New York Fashion Week continues on Wednesday with Michael Kors.

Yasmin Le Bon is happy with all the fashion choices she’s made in her life.

The English star was one of the highest earning models during the 1980s working with brands including Chanel, Versace and Calvin Klein, and even spawned a supermodel daughter in 28-year-old Amber Le Bon.

Having built relationships with some of the world’s most acclaimed designers, Yasmin has had the opportunity to wear some seriously stylish outfits over the years. Reflecting on her enviable wardrobe, the 53-year-old says she’s fully content with her style choices.

“I don’t think I have any regrets, I loved everything I wore at that moment and I was happy!” she beamed to Nine.com.au. “People talk about the ‘80s and a lot of people have a lot of regrets about the things they wore, but I really don’t feel that way! I was only wearing (Comme des Garcons), Levi jeans and Azzedine Alaia and I felt really really good!”

The fashion icon, who is also mother to daughter Saffron, 26, and Talullah, 23, with husband Simon Le Bon, says her style has “always been a little bit rock and roll” and tries her best to ensure she never looks “too done”.

Yasmin has also given fashion fans the opportunity to get their hands on some of her favourite garments by releasing the Archive Series Yasmin le Bon through online retailer Vestiaire Collective. The collection consists of the most iconic pieces from the supermodel’s fashion career, which includes a Rolex watch, sequinned Chanel camisole and a denim Yves Saint Laurent jumpsuit.

“I honestly couldn’t pick a favourite, it would be like choosing between my children!” she laughed. “They are all my favourite at different times, depending on my mood!”
