Award-winning Canadian designer Christopher Bates’ highly anticipated Top Gun collection finally took flight with an official launch party at Nightingale, the centre of Hollywood nightlife. The star-studded soiree featured an exclusive pop-up shop, private VIP lounge, light bites and libations, and culminated with a fashion show debuting Bates’ looks. In true Top Gun fashion, the Maverick-esque models strutted down an airport-inspired runway while showcasing various styles from the line, including bomber jackets, jumpsuits, sweatshirts, t-shirts, sunglasses, tank tops, aviator sunglasses, and more pieces incorporated engravings and badges made from the franchise’s authentic artwork, paying homage to the iconic 80s’ film and its box office smash sequel.. Made in Italy, the covetable collection offers fans a creative way to express their style while celebrating the most popular cinematic experience of 2022.
