Dior Homme did something very unexpected during their show in Paris last week. Before the show, there were hundreds of teenagers shrieking in joy at the site of Twilight actor Robert Pattinson, but that wasn’t the most bizarre thing to happen.
The show started off with a series of slim black suits in single and double-breasted models. Then, the show took an unexpected turn with baggy ravers’ jeans, short-sleeved t-shirts layered over longer sleeved versions and the repeated heavy-metal motif that was etched on rucksacks and bomber jackets. The motif was even seen shaved on the sides of the models’ hair.
Most of the models varied in age, and not just in the 20s range. The theme for the show was “Forever Young,” a reference that dates all the way back to the 1984 Alphaville song.
The designs seemed to appeal toward a new set of customers while also bringing up the past for others. More evidence that Dior was trying to court the millennial market surfaced when Bella Hadid wore a pair of the label’s new trainers, Dior Homme Runners, on her Instagram page.
Dolce & Gabbana once again has decided to embrace the new models of the future on Saturday in Milan as many kin of famous Hollywood stars took the runway for the big brand.
The youngest son of RnB artist and entrepreneur P Diddy was joined by offspring from actors James Marsden, Daniel Day-Lewis, Pierce Brosnan and Jude Law. Both the sons of model Pamela Anderson joined as well, following in her footsteps.
All these figures were the face for Dolce & Gabbana’s new approach to the millennials at the Fall/Winter 2018 showcase.
Diddy’s 19-year-old son, Christian, made his debut for D&G in June last year and has been in two more shows since.
Gabriel can thank his father, Daniel Day-Lewis, for his good looks that have given him a name in the fashion world. He shares the Oscar-winning actor’s bold eyebrows and good bone structure, but he distances himself from his father with his collection of tattoos that could barely be seen from underneath the sleeves of a jacket.
Pamela Anderson’s kids have both made names for themselves in the fashion world, making their mother proud. Dylan, 20, is already the face of fashion brand Saint Laurent, while Brandon, 21, has previous experience working with Dolce & Gabbana.
Paris Brosnan, 16, is an established actor who signed to Next Models and is the youngest son to James Bond after Pierce.
