Naomi Campbell turns fashion designer

The legendary British model unveils a lingerie collection, complete with a campaign shot by Mario Testino

When it comes to modelling, Naomi Campbell’s reputation is pretty much unsurpassed. Having modelled lingerie throughout her career – from brands such as Victoria’s Secret to Agent Provocateur – Campbell is now turning her hand to the other side of the trade: design.

Announcing the news via her Instagram, the model is collaborating with Yamamay, an Italian underwear company, on a limited-edition range. Aptly-named “IamNaomiCampbell” (her Instagram handle), the collection consists of bras, panties, slips, camisoles, bodysuits and kimono-style robes. Colour-wise, she’s opted for a palette of black and purple. As for the affordability of the line, WWD reports that the retail prices range from $32 for bras to $65 for a robe.

Campbell herself stars in the collection’s campaign, which is shot by her long-term collaborator Mario Testino. The Peruvian photographer has shot the model since the very beginning of her career – from Versace’s AW97 campaign to Burberry’s SS15 one, in which she starred alongside fellow British model Jourdan Dunn
