Hudson Kroenig

Mini Model Extraordinaire & Lagerfeld Muse. New York

Remember this punim? Let us refresh you. Hudson Kroenig is the adorable toddler who walked with his dad, Brad Kroenig—the inimitable muse to Karl Lagerfeld—in the Chanel S/S ’11 show. Matching from head-to-toe in a Canadian tuxedo and white Chanel jacket,—starting to come back now?—Hudson’s runway debut with daddy was only the beginning to his booming modeling career. Taking cues from dad—the Abercrombie & Fitch model-turned-Lagerfeld legend—little Hudson’s resumé reads like that of fashion’s veterans: he’s been shot by The Kaiser (numerous times!), graced the pages of German Vogue and posed as the face of Fendi alongside his dapper dad, Anja Rubik and Baptiste Giabiconi. Not bad for a 3-year-old, right? And it’s no surprise that as the face of Fendi, Hudson is repping hard—jacket, sweater, jeans, hat, shoes… you name it, he’s got it! Uncle Karl—who shot the Fendi campaign—really is like an uncle to Hud- gifting him stuffed mini Karl’s to cuddle with at night, visiting him in NYC and hanging with him in Europe. From catwalks to clothes, little H definitely knows a thing or two about style. It’s safe to say this kid has a bigger Nike kicks collection than any kid on the playground. Plus- he picks them out himself! But we’ve got to credit his good-looking dad for his keen sense of style and model material. Brad has fronted the campaigns for Chanel (duh!), H&M, DKNY and Canadian brand, Le Chateau. Muse and magnet to Uncle Karl’s camera, he has shot him for everything from Harper’s Bazaar to the Pirelli Calendar- keeping it PG here, kids. With a dad of this caliber, we’re sure Hudson has a big future ahead of him. Now that’s what we call good jeans!
