It’s late summer, which can only mean one thing: the rich and famous have temporarily relocated to Italy. The upcoming season of Succession just wrapped on location in Tuscany, and celebrities are flocking to Venice for the 2021 Venice Film Festival and a multi-day Dolce & Gabbana presentation. In attendance for the latter events were the internet’s favorite post-punk pair, Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker, who seized the opportunity to pull out some big-time couples fits.
Kardashian and Barker generally favor lots of studs, spikes, and graphic tees, and they kept their all-black uniform going while visiting the Floating City. They repped Travis’s label, DTA Records, in matching spiked logo hoodies while riding on a Venetian water taxi (Kardashian completed her look with a pair of matching spiked slingbacks). They coordinated in Converse and layered cross and skull-and-crossbones necklaces over Aperol spritzes and gelato cones. They smooched while wearing pinstripe pants and a red-and-black corset dress, and then they smooched some more.
While the Blink-182 drummer has dressed like, well, a Blink-182 drummer for decades now, Kardashian has leaned into her goth look over the course of their fast-and-furious courtship, which began earlier this year. Though Kardashian and Barker are both in their 40s, there is something charming about them dressing like a pair of Hot Topic tweens who were dragged along on a family vacation to Disney World. (That they appeared to share items of clothing, including the aforementioned hoodies and a pair of Prada sunglasses, only adds to the middle-school appeal.) Of course, the caveat here is that they actually appear to be quite happy. What a concept!
