DUBAI: Moroccan-Italian model Malika El-Maslouhi hit the catwalk at Missoni’s Spring/Summer 2022 showcase at Milan Fashion Week on Saturday, showing off the label’s signature print in her latest outing on the runway.
El-Maslouhi showed off a patchwork, halter-neck dress in the Italian fashion house’s go-to knit material, complete with zigzag patterns in varying sober shades.
“A dream to conclude Milan Fashion Week with the beautiful @missoni show,” she wrote on Instagram in Italian, alongside a carousel of videos and photos from the show.
The ready-to-wear collection marked the first outing as creative director for Alberto Caliri, the longtime right-hand designer of Angela Missoni.
It was a daring collection dotted with bandeau tops with trailing side panels, midriff-baring patchwork jumpers and trench coats opened to reveal barley-there bikinis. There were, however, more sedate options, with form-fitting dresses in patchwork or zigzag lurex, such as the piece worn by El-Maslouhi, as well as alluring minidresses and fluid knitted trousers with a shimmering silver finish.
The show marks the latest outing for El-Maslouhi, who has been in high demand this fashion week season.
Designer-to-the-stars David Koma tapped the model to showcase his latest collection during London Fashion Week earlier in September, and the Spring/Summer 2022 line did not disappoint.
For her part, El-Maslouhi showed off a number of looks, including a form-fitting gown in fluorescent pink complete with thin spaghetti straps and a heavily feathered bodice. A hip-high slit finished off the look.
Next up, the model showed off a black oversized hooded sweatshirt and matching leggings, both adorned with large reflective sequins.
The model was hot off a series of runway showcases at New York Fashion Week, where she walked for the likes of Ulla Johnson, Prabal Gurung and Peter Dundas’s collaboration with online retailer Revolve.
The breakout star has been taking the industry by storm since making her modelling debut when she was 18-years-old.
In addition to gracing the runways of storied fashion houses such as Dior, Chanel, Valentino and Jacquemus, among others, the fashion star has also appeared in international campaigns for the likes of Off-White, Lanvin, Calvin Klein Swim and Zadig & Voltaire.
