FASHION CHIT CHAT

Tessa Thompson and Dev Hynes Are Fashion Week’s Coolest Front Row Duo

While reports of their romance are yet to be confirmed publicly, when it comes to style, Tessa Thompson and Dev Hynes seem perfectly in sync. The actor was first spotted with Hynes—best known by the moniker of his musical project Blood Orange—while out and about in Manhattan last year, wearing complementary outfits that spoke of their distinct, eclectic take on fashion. More recently, the pair stepped out to attend the launch of Loewe’s New York flagship store in December, wearing looks that meshed the label’s forward-thinking designs with their innate personal style.

Now, they’ve pledged their allegiance to another brand beloved by the fashion pack: Bottega Veneta. Thompson and Hynes sat front row at the brand’s Milan Fashion Week show on Saturday evening in a pair of outfits that only reinforced the appeal of their yin-and-yang aesthetic. Hynes embraced the brand’s famously luxurious leathers in a dark brown trench, black trousers, and a pair of chunky Chelsea boots, before topping the look off with a Cossack-style hat, red-tinted shades, and a single pearl earring to give it his trademark androgynous twist. Thompson, meanwhile, also wore a trench—albeit this one oversized and cut from a light gray leather—and accessorized with a pair of the brand’s highly coveted, intrecciato-weave slides. The combined effect was the perfect balance of the Italian brand’s sleek, elevated signatures with the pair’s instinctive ability to lend even the most outré look a sense of ease. We may not know for sure if they’re all loved up just yet, but on the style front, it’s already an affair to remember.
