The Versace Fendi team-up is a 2022 pop-up collection made through the efforts of the two houses’ leaders: Kim Jones, Fendi’s women’s wear artistic director, and Silvia Venturini Fendi, Fendi’s men’s wear designer.

‘It’s a first in the history of fashion: two designers having a true creative dialogue that stems from respect and friendship,’ stated Versace during the announcement last year. ‘It led to us swapping roles to create these two collections.’ 

Lila walked in a joint show for the brands back in September with her mother Kate Moss, looking every inch the style icon in in a gold and white swimsuit.

Last week the rising star of the modelling world revealed the insulin pump and monitor she wears to control her Type 1 diabetes while attending the annual Met Gala in New York City.

Arriving alongside supermodel mother Kate, Lila made her latest red carpet appearance in a sheer beige Burberry gown, emblazoned with letters and numbers and encrusted in diamonds.

The outfit’s sheer detailing drew attention to the insulin pod on her left hip and continuous blood glucose monitoring device on her upper-right arm as she made her way into New York’s iconic Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art. 

The young model previously discussed her condition during a segment on Vogue’s In The Bag YouTube after making the unconventional decision to wear the monitor on the catwalk. 

              What are continuous                              blood glucose monitors? 

Many people with type 1 diabetes, who lack the essential hormone insulin that controls blood sugar levels, have to perform uncomfortable checks at least four times a day.

The results show how much insulin – which helps the body absorb sugars in food – they will need to inject to keep their blood sugar stable and avoid potentially fatal spikes or falls.

But high-tech implants can monitor blood sugar in real time, marking the end of finger-prick blood tests.

Called a continuous blood glucose monitor, the implants are no larger than a £2 coin and sit on the arm, beaming updates to the user’s phone.

Former Prime Minister Theresa May used one of the most popular gadgets, a FreeStyle Libre.

While the technology has been available in the UK for more than a decade, spending watchdogs judged it too expensive to offer to every patient. But NHS chiefs have since announced they plan to fund the monitors for all.

She said: ‘I have some sugar tablets, in case my blood sugar goes low. I’m diabetic so I have this which controls a pod on my leg, which gives me insulin. 

‘This is very important to keep in my bag, it comes with me everywhere.’ 

Lila, the daughter of catwalk veteran Kate and her former partner Jefferson Hack, revealed she has an Apple AirTag attached to her insulin pump reader so she doesn’t lose it. 

She added: ‘I even have an apple air-tag to follow it around with my phone.’

Speaking about her condition in 2020, she told The Kit: ‘I think not many people know that I have diabetes. It’s not visible from the outside, so no one would really know just by looking at you.’

Type 1 diabetes causes the level of glucose (sugar) in your blood to become too high.

It happens when your body cannot produce enough of a hormone called insulin, which controls blood glucose.

You need daily injections of insulin to keep your blood glucose levels under control.
