There exist in this world two types of dressers: jeans
girls, who swear on their J Brands and MiHs; and non-jeans girls, who scorn denim in favour of skirts and dresses
We always assumed that Naomi Campbell
fell into the latter crew (we've seen so few photos of her wearing jeans, and anyway, this is
a woman who turned up for community service in stilettos), but the supermodel is stepping over the denim divide for her latest effort: a collection of jeans for Italian fashion brand Fiorucci.
The first Naomi Campbell for Fiorucci collection is expected to show this week in Milan ahead of a S/S 12 launch.
The project isnt Campbells first extra-modelling creative effort. Fashionista
informs that she designed a collection for a Brazilian retailer in 2008. Campbell also recorded an album, Babywoman, in 1995but thats a story for a different day.
Fiorucci may be a less-than-familiar name these days, but in its 70s
-90s heyday, every wardrobe contained some version of the brands cherub t-shirt. Were sure the brand is banking on a surge of interest connected to Campbells involvement. If she walks the runway in their gear, they might just get it.
