As Cindy Crawford takes a step back from modeling, her two children, Kaia Gerber andPresley Gerber continue to dominate the high-fashion runways. The two siblings made their first major catwalk debut together at the September 2017 Burberry show during London Fashion Week on Saturday evening.
Although it’s the first catwalk they shared together, it is not the first runway for either of them.
Kaia Gerber made her first NYFW debut this season walking the runways at Calvin Klein,Fenty Puma, and Marc Jacobs. Her brother, Presley has walked the Moschino, Zadig & Voltaire, and Dolce & Gabbana shows in the past.
The two Gerber siblings were in high company at the Burberry show. They strutted by some of London’s biggest fashion models, who sat front row — including Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, and Cara Delevingne. British Vogue editor, Edward Enninful attended the show, as did American Vogue editor Anna Wintour, with her daughter, Bee Shaffer.
The Gerbers join a new league of fresh-faced Burberry models including Jude Law‘s 16 year old daughter, Iris Law who also sat front row at the show. Law became the new face of Burberry Beauty earlier this year.
In terms of the collection, creative director Christopher Bailey continues to deliver on what he does best—fresh, new modern interpretations of the British culture and sartorial way of dressing. Tartan, plaid, and Burberry’s signature check patterns became reworked in fresh new rain smocks, ponchos, hats, zip-up jackets, oversized tote bags, coats, and more. Colorful, vibrant plaid patterns were rampant during NYFW and continue to be a big trend.
“Hygge” style dominated the runway where Kaia Gerber and other models strutted by wearing colorful, cozy knitwear paired with argyle socks and playful heels. Millennial pink crept its way onto a few outerwear pieces too.
In terms of accessories, models wore large, statement crystal chandelier monocle earrings. Don’t be surprised if you start seeing this jewelry style trend show up next Spring. Although you don’t have to wait that long as the Burberry collection is available for immediate purchase globally, and will also be exhibited at the Old Sessions House in London, where the show took place.
Alongside the show, Christopher Bailey helped curate the new ‘Here We Are’ exhibition which features over 200 works of the 20th century’s most prominent social and documentary photographers which explores the British way of life. It will include never-before-seen works by Shirley Baker, Ken Russell, Alasdair McLellan and Gosha Rubchinskiy. If you happen to be in London soon, you can catch the exhibition which opens on Monday, September 18 and runs through Sunday, October 1 at the Old Sessions House located at 22 Clerkenwell Green, Clerkenwell, London EC1R 0NA, UK.
