Tennis whites were off the cards for Bella Hadid, who headed to the court this week wearing a matching emerald-green shorts and sweater combo and a cropped polo shirt. She embraced match play in her favourite Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance rainbow trainers, and topped off her look with pigtail scrunchies and heavy gold jewellery. The supermodel stashed her personals in a Louis Vuitton duffle bag and a leopard-print tote, keeping her Wilson racket firmly on show.
Hadid recently returned to the Big Apple after isolating at her family’s farm in Pennsylvania, where she spent lockdown with her mother Yolanda, her sister, Gigi Hadid – who is expecting a baby later this year – and Gigi’s boyfriend, Zayn Malik. Horse riding, home-cooking and sunbathing were the quarantine activities of choice for Bella, who shared her visual diary on Instagram. Simone Porte Jacquemus even called upon the supermodel to feature in a FaceTime photoshoot, in which Bella posed with the brand’s cult Le Chiquito bag, a baby blue knitted bodysuit and a crisp white suit.
Since being back in NY, Bella has taken to the streets in a catalogue of ’90s-inspired streetwear looks. A pair of Soulland limited edition Playboy trousers were given an airing on a recent outing, and she has become almost inseparable from her new Telfar Bushwick Birkin. She will no doubt continue to name-check rising independent brands, such as Bode, Reese Cooper and Pangaia, which she used to pep up her loungewear during her downtime. But what sports look will she put her spin on next?
