Usually when models collaborate with designers or brands, it falls flat. Usually, models do this for marketing purposes and not out of some deep-seated passion for design and textiles. And typically it’s a collaboration that benefits the brand — that adds some legitimacy to their reputation or at least promises a surge in sales for a brief period of time. Think: Kate Moss for Topshop or Rihanna for River Island.
Well Kiko Mizuhara has effectively put an end to this. The Korean-American model who has walked for Chanel, Olympia Le-Tan and Nasir Mazhar among others, has just released her second collection with Opening Ceremony, a collaboration that started last season. And, from the looks of her Instagram posts, it’s not your average homely H&M or Topshop collaboration.
Peep some highlights from the collection below.
