At Sabato De Sarno’s debut show for Gucci, front-rower Kendall Jenner was literally on point. The model rolled up to the spring 2024 show at the Gucci Hub in Milan in a pair of glossy spiked red kitten heels that perfectly matched the delectable Brunello hue that De Sarno is pioneering as the color of his creative tenureship.
Increasingly, luxury houses are searching to ground their design DNA with an idiosyncratic shade. See Bottega’s parakeet green, the shocking “PP” of Valentino (where De Sarno spent 13 years before taking the creative helm at Gucci), plus Daniel Lee’s newly-minted Burberry blue — which took over not only the spring 2024 catwalk at Highbury Fields in North London, but also transformed Bond Street Underground station into “Burberry Street.”
We digress, but it’s worth noting that the tone of Kenny’s kitten heels – and her matching Jackie bag – were no accident. Though it was difficult to see guests entering the Gucci Hub due to the Lynchian carmine lighting that engulfed the space, eagle-eyed front row fans would have noted that a) Kendall walked in pantless in a micro-hemline trench coat and b) made a rare appearance with her beau Bad Bunny. He appeared on the show’s livestream audaciously chewing his gum and sporting a #couplesgoals matching Jackie bag in black, that would give Jacob Elordi and his handbag collection a run for his money.
Jenner of course, is no stranger to a pantless look. Earlier this week she showed off her supermodel pins in an oversized Wall Street-striped men’s shirt and loafers, and of course there was that Bottega Veneta stilettos-tights-and-little-else look in November 2022. Now Kenny has another pair of kitten heels to wear no trousers with.
