The Emirati twins Hadban are once again taking over Milan Men’s Fashion Week

It’s fashion week season, and that means it’s time for the Hadban twins from the UAE to conquer the internet once again.

Mohammed and Humaid Hadban, who have become social media stars with their well-coordinated, colorful and matching styles, were spotted at various shows throughout Milan Men’s Fashion Week. The duo, whose TikTok account, Twins Hadban, has more than 1.2 million followers, are best known for their sartorial sensibilities, having worn high-end luxury brands from Gucci to Kenzo and featured in an American Eagle campaign.

They first stopped at Gucci on Friday, the opening day of next fall and winter’s fashion shows. Despite the absence of a creative director, the label showcased a range of messy, androgynous styles – echoes of former creative director Alessandro Michele, who left suddenly in November after seven years in the role.

The Hadbans mingled with other global influencers, including TikTok star Nic Kaufmann and Callum Mullin.

“This time we wanted to dress differently,” the brothers wrote on Instagram, wearing matching outfits from the label, but in different styles.

The following day, the Hadbans attended the Dolce & Gabbana fashion show – wearing matching outfits and sunglasses – where Machine Gun Kelly and Italian singer Blanco were among the front-row guests.

The designer duo presented a collection that was mostly black and monochrome, with gray and white playing a secondary role. Although it was lightweight, the look was anything but basic as designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana created a collection built around a cut that’s perfect for a night out.

The twins were also seen at the Fendi show later in the day where designer Silvia Venturini Fendi presented a collection that WWD said it was “one of the most genuinely luxurious collections in Milan”.

The Hadbans were also seen at the Etro and Prada fashion shows on Sunday.

At Prada, co-creative directors Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons sent tailored, slightly boxy jackets with sharp wing-like collars. The collars, reminiscent of the 1930s or 70s and in retro geometric prints, gave a romantic touch to an otherwise frugal collection.

The clean look and minimalist cuts had a deliberate retro-futuristic feel, which Simons defined as “very Prada”.

Puffer coats had a round shape. Quilted shirts kept the torso warm under the coat. The shoes were laced with a thick sole and a raised border. The bags were thin bags for documents or computers, with an opening for a thermos. The suit was mostly black or gray, with parts that added color: trousers in red or green, navy blue jackets, yellow and pink cardigans.

Outside, hundreds of screaming K-pop fans greeted the band Enhypen as they arrived for the show, and several were rewarded with selfies afterwards. The seven-member group debuted in 2020 on the EP Border: First day.

Last year, the twins also attended the spring-summer men’s fashion week shows in Milan, alongside actors such as Jake Gyllenhaal and Rami Malek.
