Irina Shayk becomes Anine Bing’s first campaign face
Supermodel Irina Shayk stars in Anine Bing’s new “Classics” campaign in celebration of the label’s 10th anniversary—also marking the first time the brand has had a face other than its eponymous founder. As a supermodel whose off-duty looks rival her moments on the runway, it was a natural choice for Bing to tap someone who looked effortlessly great while still being a busy mom. “My style is simple,” Shayk told PEOPLE. “Anine Bing creates timeless, chic styles and modern wardrobe essentials. It’s easy to wear and easy to mix. Her clothes make any woman look and feel good.” For the mom-of-one, comfort is key, making it easy to add the brand’s staples into her everyday rotation. “I ended up bringing them home with me from the shoot,” she exclaims. Fair!

Tommy Hilfiger has just announced its Spring 2022 “Make Your Move” brand campaign, featuring Grammy-winning, Golden Globe, and Emmy nominated performer Anthony Ramos. Throughout the campaign, Ramos showcases modern prep styles in new silhouettes, including the double pleated chino as well as fresh patterns as seen in the mixed striped icon sweater, all with an understated collegiate code. The “Make Your Move” campaign further features a diverse cast of talents including models Luka Sabbat, Georgia Palmer, Meghan Roche, Soo Joo Park, Alton Mason, and Liam Kelly. “When you Make Your Move, you’re showing the world what you’re made of–what you’ve got,” Ramos says. “It’s about trusting your instincts and never forgetting your roots. I love that when you take modern prep and combine it with the Make Your Move initiative, you are watching a blank canvas come to life. It gives way for every person’s self-expression, and our differences are what makes it incredible.”

Kim Kardashian does Swim–finally!
The internet’s favorite basics designer has just added swimwear to her catalog! Kardashian took to Twitter and Instagram to announce her first swimwear drop, which will be out March 18. The initial swim launch includes 19 styles—such as long-sleeved crop tops, bike-short unitards, and classic triangle tops available in seven solid colors, including the skin-toned offerings that Skims is known for, as well as cobalt and periwinkle. Kardashian describes the collection’s individual pieces as “Lego” with the goal of letting customers build their own sets according to the parts of their body they want to accentuate or cover up. The mogul has been teasing the drop on social media for weeks, claiming that she had to reel back on the spoilers since she wanted her customers to still receive a surprise. “I’ve really wanted swim for a really long time,” she told BOF.
