When Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid caught up over pasta and aperitifs in Santa Monica last weekend, their table conversation must have swung to their shared love of Australian designers. Specifically, the Byron Bay-based sustainable brand St. Agni, whose minimalist aesthetic and 90s vocabulary have propelled them to cult status within our shores.
What else then, could explain Hadid stepping out in the exact pair of understated pants Jenner wore to this year’s Coachella festival less than a week after seeing her fellow SoCal socialite?
The pair in question are ethically made slightly slouchy trousers, now available for pre-order if you too would like to share a piece of clothing the some of the most stylish beau monde.
Eschewing tailoring convention, the low-rise pants riff off of the grunge aesthetic with a hip-bearing raw edge waistline. Crafted from linen, the pants fuse deconstruction with polish, making the piece the perfect off-duty party staple.
Hadid was spotted wearing the relaxed trousers when she left the West Hollywood nightclub, The Nice Guys. You may know this celebrity hotspot through Drake lore—the rapper is known to frequent the joint and “hide his pain behind the bar”, as he raps in “Champagne Poetry—but we’ll now remember the locale as the moment we realised Hadid and Jenner proverbially share a wardrobe. Sisterhood of the travelling St. Agni indeed.
In images, which you can view here, Hadid can be seen styling the distressed pants with a scalloped-hem black tank top and her go-to accessories from Miu Miu. See: the Italian luxuriate’s mini hobo matelassé nappa leather Wander Bag and the same penny loafers Hadid spotted for her girls’ night with Jenner.
Of course, it typically only requires the advocation from one member of the celebrity style set for a piece to reach cult status. But with St. Agni’s lightly frayed trousers a sign of the times, it’s understandable that the Hollywood boulevards are rife with this anything-but-basic well, basic.
When Jenner first put this object of affection on our radar, she similarly paired it with a Coachella-approved spin on stealth wealth style. This included a very anti-festival fashion cut-out tank top (also from St. Agni), The Row open-toe sandals (!) and a vintage Fendi Baguette. Because nothing screams opulence than wearing pieces people go miles to preserve and upkeep to a dusty music festival, right?
St. Agni must sense a shift in popularity too, with these trousers currently available for pre-order in all sizes, giving us all ample opportunity to become the Carmen and Tibby to Gigi’s Bridget and Kendall’s Lena.
