TOKYO, Oct. 12 (UPI) -- Gigi Hadid brought her Tommy Hilfiger line to Tokyo, Japan on Tuesday.

The 21-year-old American model promoted her Tommy x Gigi collection with Olympic judo gold medalist Matthew Baker at the Tommy Hilfiger Omotesando flagship store.

Hadid wore a navy peacoat over a matching top and shorts and accessorized with thigh-high socks. Hair stylist Bryce Scarlett said on Instagram that they were going for a "Harajuku vibe" with the star's mini buns and glittery makeup.

Tommy Hilfiger had announced in August that it would team with Hadid on the collection. The model told People magazine the next month that designing the line was "a really special experience."

"I feel like every girl wants to design clothes at some point, and it's something I've become even more passionate about as my career has developed," Hadid said. "This was a really nice way to start designing because I could trust in a team that I know is amazing."

"A lot of our inspiration came from pieces that I've worn myself and that I've found at vintage stores," she revealed. "We wanted to make special, authentic designs that feel fresh and exciting but also timeless and classic."

"I feel like there's a piece in the collection for everyone; I designed it with so many of my friends, family and role models in mind," the star added. "I think people will have a lot of fun with the collection."

Hadid is the daughter of former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid and Mohamed Hadid. She is known for her modeling work with Guess, Victoria's Secret and Sports Illustrated.
