Actress Gabirelle Union and Chicago Bulls shooting guard Dwyane Wade, hands down, win the “cutest couple” and “coolest parents ever” awards. Not an easy feat. But, the two took their son, Zion, on a tour of Europe as a 10th birthday present this summer, and boy did this family do the grand tour in style. The trio landed in Rome, Italy in early June, made their way to Florence, San Gigmignano, Paris, France for Men’s Fashion week, and then back to Italy to spend their final days on the coast. Lucky for us, we were able to follow along via Union and Wade’s Instagrams under their hashtag—#WadeWorldTour.
Some might have issues with a couple forming their own hashtag to document their European vacation, but in this case, we think it’s totally acceptable . . . mostly because their style was so on point we wanted to see as much of it as we possibly could and these two are so cute you can practically feel the love. Union and Wade traveled with their stylists Thomas Christos (for her) and Calyann Barnett (for him), who put the duo in coordinated ensembles by Valentino, Rick Owens, Off-White, Balmain, and Berluti. However, nothing topped their complementary, school-boy inspired Thom Browne ensembles—which Wade accented with a satchel in the shape of Browne’s wire-haired dachshund, Hector, solidifying that the “man-bag” is 100% in.
Now that we’re on the brink of August and preparing to embark on family vacations of our own, we can’t help but turn to the #WadeWorldTour for a little fantasy style inspo, courtesy of THE freshest couple of the summer. Buon viaggio!
