At New York Fashion Week last September, Kith’s theatrical fashion show entitled “Kith Park” debuted an upcoming collaboration with Versace. The announcement marked the streetwear mega-retailer’s first-ever, large-scale collaboration with a luxury fashion house, and the partnership quickly garnered plenty of online buzz.

Designed by Kith, the collection boasts more than 100 styles across men’s and women’s apparel, footwear and accessories, which were fabricated and produced entirely in Italy by the Versace team. Plus, the Italian house’s iconic logo has been redesigned for the first time ever, featuring Kith’s signature box logo across the eyes of Versace’s Medusa.

On Friday, Feb. 15, the collection will finally hit all Kith stores, its website and select Versace flagship locations across the globe. To coincide with its release, the brands have joined forces yet again for a special campaign starring Versace house muse (and expert sneaker shopper) Bella Hadid, who opened the collaboration’s portion of “Kith Park” last season.

As seen on Hadid, Kith x Versace is filled with a mix of the logomania and Greek-meets-Baroque motifs, covering puffers, track suits, silk blouses, biker shorts and more. The two brands also worked on a ’90s-era sneaker together, bringing back Versace’s Amico Trainer from its archives and updated with a new silhouette and design variations. For women, the collection also offers a leather stiletto boot and mule with gold co-branded hardware.

5 Minutes With Bella Hadid: On time, best memories & notes to self

When we met Bella Hadid last week, she had flown in from a whirlwind weekend in Dubai, and was flying off to Tokyo in 24 hours. A Tag Heuer party planned in her honour was 3 hours away, yet here she was, smiling, chipper and fresh as a daisy. Scores of fans congregated outside the Swiss watchmaker’s boutique in The Gardens Mall, hoping to catch another glimpse of the model, dressed in an all-silver ensemble and snake motif gogo boots. It was her first visit in Malaysia, and we had 5 precious minutes to catch up to her. Within that timespan, we discovered there’s more to Bella than meets the eye, that no amount of social media impressions can capture.

What are the fun privileges you enjoy most as the face of Tag Heuer?

“It’s probably travelling to great place like Kuala Lumpur. We went to the F1 Grand Prix race awhile ago in Monaco, and it was a great experience to be with the entire Tag Heuer team. To meet everybody, to really get to know the brand and the watches. I might be able to go to Switzerland to see how they’re made and that’s a big learning experience. With modelling, you go in and out of shoots, you see your pictures, and that’s it. With Tag Heuer I get to learn and experience things and it’s such a blessing to be able do so.”

What are the characteristics you share with the brand, as an individual?

“As a woman – I don’t know if you would say this about me – when I feel strong I feel like a part of Tag Heuer. I don’t feel strong all the time, but for sure. that’s our similarity. To me, Tag Heuer is super classic and I hope to be like that in the future. Tag Heuer has been around a long time, so I hope I will stay classic too.”

Let’s talk routines: are you more of a morning or night person?

“I’m a big, big night person. I just don’t like to wake up in the morning but once I’m up, I can go and I think a lot. I don’t like to go out as much as before; I like to be at home in bed at night.”

Your life is super busy. What do you wish you had more time for?

“More time for my friends and family. I try to give them as much time as I can when I’m home. Usually when I’m home, my girlfriends meet me at my house or come to the airport because when I’m home it’s to repack then leave. I have to make as much time as I can for my sister and best friends, make sure I see my mum and brother to remind them I love them, because when I’m gone, it’s for awhile.”

Can you share a favourite memory?

“This is my favourite memory! Probably just riding my horses when I was younger. Now we have a farm so we have our horses there. I’m just excited about continuing to make memories.”

Lastly, what advice would you give your 16-year-old self?

“It’s going to get better. Stay confident in who you are, don’t let people tell you what you are supposed to be and just to remember, to come back to your roots constantly and be yourself.”

Model Bella Hadid talks about her health, Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and more for PEOPLE

Bella Hadid‘s feeling like her healthiest and strongest self as she prepares to hit the runway at the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

The 22 year old supermodel, who was diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease in early 2012, tells PEOPLE exclusively backstage at the VSFS in New York City that she’s in a better place mentally and physically than she was when she walked the lingerie show in Shanghai and Paris the past two years.

You have to have such a great mental state when you’re going into this,” Hadid tells us. “I’ve been really sick for the past few years, and it was really hard for me to fully experience the whole show and have fun with it and be excited. This year I really just feel like I am myself again and happy and healthy in all aspects of my life.”


She adds, “I am just really happy. Your mental state is honestly the biggest part about the whole process and the body kind of comes with being excited to work out.”

To prepare, the model says she’s been “working out a ton” and maintains a healthy diet, but doesn’t stop herself from enjoying the foods she loves.

I’m not keeping myself from anything. I’m still eating things that I want to eat, but you know, not pizza everyday!

Hadid will be rejoined by sister Gigi Hadid at tonight’s show, after she dropped out of the 2017 Shanghai show at the last minute. And Hadid says it is so special to have her older sister by her side.


It is just insane. Even part of the show we’re standing close to each other for the finale and it is just exciting to be able to hold her hand,” Hadid says. “If I feel anything I can just look at her and we can make a joke and laugh. That is just what I am most excited about.

Allure: Bella Hadid tries fall’s boldest lip colors and takes our beauty quiz

Allure: Bella Hadid tries fall’s boldest lip colors and takes our beauty quiz

Bella Hadid has just flown from France into New York on a red-eye flight for our cover shoot and then is hopping back on a plane to Germany for work as soon as we’re done. The supermodel and face of Dior Beauty since 2016 spends a lot of time on a plane. “In the beginning, I would fly straight into work, and really not feel well and not know how to handle my jet lag — now I’ve kind of perfected the jet lag,” Hadid tells Allure. “I’m on a plane every other day, so just for my own health and my own skin, I always have moisturizer with me, a hyaluronic acid serum, and a night face mask because I love doing facials on the plane.

As the world buzzes about the Hadid’s rumored rekindled relationship with The Weeknd — the paparazzi somehow still manage to find us, even on our closed set at a private beach club in Atlantic Beach — Hadid is focused on the job at hand. It’s a windy, warm day on the sandy coastline as photographer Dan Jackson shoots the model in different bold lip looks for our Lip Guide.

While Hadid is surely jet-lagged, occasionally falling into the sand from exhaustion between shots, she turns it on for the camera: She is warm and cheery, with a refreshing and childlike playfulness, and is the rare type of mega-celebrity who learns everyone’s names on set. In fact, when a group of screaming teenage girls spots her at the end of the shoot as we’re heading back to her trailer, she exits the car to hug them and take pictures despite her exhaustion. Shout-out to Yolanda and Mohamed Hadid — you did a great job.

Bella’s Beauty Q & A

The supermodel shares her beloved beauty habits, products, and icons.

ALLURE: What are the makeup items you always have to have in your purse?

BH: Since I travel so much, [it’s] skin care, mostly: a moisturizer, three serums, a night face mask. Things that hydrate my skin and make sure that when I land, I’m ready for work and able to keep going, ’cause it gets super dry up there. I always have my Dior Lip Maximizer and Dior Lip Glow, I never leave the house without it.

ALLURE: What is a hair risk you’d like to take?

BH: I definitely want to do a pixie cut. I want to do bangs again. I want to go blonde, and right now, I’m obsessed with long hair — I love a long weave.

ALLURE: Best drugstore buy?

BH: I always grab sheet masks. They’re my favorite. The best ones are in Korea — they have such amazing new innovations there that you can never find in America.

ALLURE: Looking back, is there a red carpet beauty trend you’ve tried and regretted?

BH: No, because I come up with the look every time we do the styling. I think the only time I can really be myself is when I can do my red carpet looks. I make sure that everybody knows by the time I get there, exactly what the mood is [and] exactly what we’re gonna do when I do press stuff, so I kind of take that more seriously than anything.

ALLURE: Do you have any beauty idols?

BH: Cher and Monica Bellucci, both very major. Cher, I have always been obsessed with. One of my best friend’s godmother is Cher, so growing up she kind of taught me about the ins and outs, which was really cool. Everybody sees Cher as an incredible singer and actress, and, of course, such a fashion icon. She still to this day goes out on stage and is so major, and I aspire to be like her for the rest of my life. If you talk to her now she just has so much joy and she’s such an amazing person. And Monica Bellucci is just one of the most beautiful women of all time.

ALLURE: Best cure-all?

BH: My mom always said, “Drink water. You have a stomachache, a headache? Drink water.” It was always the thing that she said would heal everything, and now I’m realizing that she was so right — but I definitely have to force myself, [because] I’m not a good water drinker. Also, definitely excessive moisturizing on my body, my lips, and my face is something that kind of just makes me feel all around better.

ALLURE: What’s a fashion trend you’re really into right now?

BH: I’m definitely a sneakerhead, and I love matching sneakers with dresses and gowns. Even after the Versace show, I asked them if I could wear the dress that I wore in the show and they let me borrow the new sneakers that they have too. When I was 15 years old, my stepdad got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and that was the first time I remember wearing sneakers to a huge event. I had this beautiful gown with my black run-down Converse. I even cut my own leather laces, and I think that’s when my love for tennis shoes really started. I feel sexier in a pair of tennis shoes than I do in heels.

ALLURE: How do you practice self-care?

BH: I think mantras are really good, and I think that’s something that I really need to start doing more. I’ve written mine down and I’m a very spiritual person. In the morning I always take time with myself and have my crystals, and at night I listen to my meditation music just to prepare for the next day. With my schedule, I need to take more time to do that and to be more positive about myself. Usually, if I’m having a bad day I call my mom or I text one of my best friends, Ali, and she just hypes me up. I’m like, “Ali, I feel ugly and shitty and I don’t want to do this,” and she’s like, “You got this, you’re here,” and the same thing for her when she calls me. I think that’s really good to have your close friends around you, or just a phone call away, because I’m not around my friends a lot because of work. The people that I’m very close to help me a lot, it’s really nice to be able to rely on somebody like that.
