While leaving the Fendi fall 2021 couture show, fresh-off-the-runway model Bella Hadid opted for a relatively pared-back look with an unexpected styling trick. Save for a tartan print shrunken red vest, she wore all black, including a Noor Hammour leather coat, loose trousers, and leather boots. As for accessories? Well, Hadid has been on a glove tear for the past week, and was first spotted out with a pair of Bernie Sanders-style, knit-inspired gloves from a small store in Naples, Florida. Her newest incarnation is a bit more elegant. Ms. Hadid sported slim, plain black opera length gloves but with her jewelry on top of the pair. A hulking silver square ring was visible on her right hand and the band of her Cartier Panthère watch on her left wrist.
The look is quite a sophisticated one with a long history. The slender-glove-and-bijoux moment has appeared in countless Vogue editorials throughout the ’70s, ’80s, early ’90s, and a bit in the mid-’00s. The uber-luxe combination is both irreverent and glamorous, an ideal canvas for showing off jewelry. In a sense, it’s a bit of a fantasy: In what megawatt world are we so relaxed that we place our jewelry over our thin gloves instead of under? Well, turns out it’s Hadid’s world, and we’re just admiring it.
