Kendall Jenner on Fashion Week, Her Love of “Random Vintage,” and What She’ll Be Wearing This Fall

Kendall Jenner is ready to tackle fashion month. Yesterday, she kicked off her New York leg of the tour by sitting front row at Longchamp next to the likes of Julianne Moore. For the occasion, Jenner wore a sporty, long-sleeved dress that was fresh from the Spring 2020 collection. Her thoughts on the show? “I loved it, I think it was one of my favorites,” says Jenner, who is a face of the brand. “It was really cool, chic, and bright—it had a happy energy to it.”

As a model, Jenner is no stranger to the gruelling New York–London-Milan-Paris schedule that will soon follow this week—but she can’t deny that there’s still a special energy when shows come to the Big Apple. “I love New York,” she said. “All the Fashion Weeks, everyone gathers together for each one, but for this one specifically, it’s those people and then some. It’s so fun, and everybody is ready to have a good time.”

This season, Jenner is switching things up, hitting New York as a showgoer, not a catwalk star. “It’s a lot more mellow to just go,” she says, “but I won’t lie, today I was missing it. I was watching the girls and I was like, ‘Damn, I kind of want to walk.’” The model then teased that she will be in Milan—perhaps to hit the runway there?—and “TBD on everything else.”

As far as the fashion mood in her own wardrobe, it seems that there are changes brewing, too. “I’m saying this, and I just wore a bright pink and yellow dress last night, but I’m into more of a monotone palette right now,” she says. (The bright ensemble she’s referring to? Just some casual va-va-vampy Versace, all the details on it here.) “Just a very chic, simple palette. But next week, it could change. I could be into bright greens again.”

Jenner says she’ll be continuing on her love for “random vintage” in the coming months. (That, in addition to the much-coveted Jean Paul Gaultier archival pieces she’s worn lately.) But for her, a vintage score doesn’t always have to mean big-name labels. “I have this little cow-print bag that’s super old. There’s no tag in it, nobody knows where it’s from or what it is, but I found it in a cool little thrift store,” she says. “Most [vintage] stuff that I wear is pretty random. And I love that because nobody else has it.”
