Since there’s nothing quite like going straight to the source for an answer, and since Guy Trebay, our menswear reviewer, is currently on the front line (or front row) of this issue when menswear shows, I asked him how he would translate the latest designer moves for the everyday menswear. Here is the information it sent back from the theater of operations:

“A distinctly positive conclusion from the recent edition of Pitti Uomo, Florence’s premier menswear show, the Milan shows and those still going on in Paris, is the flexibility of options for men in all ages.

The broken suit – or the jacket worn with one of the many trouser options – is now universally preferred by designers. (We’re talking about conservative designers, not the ones offering furry pants or leather zip-up shorts.) A good formula seems to be to wear a tailored garment as an anchor, then indulge yourself. . That could mean a blazer or chore jacket or even an untucked shirt with square tails (think guayabera) over pants. These exist at all price points, from Brioni to Uniqlo.

As for the pants, despite Jerry Seinfeld’s insistence that no one over 30 has any interest in wearing jeans, they remain my favorite. The choices are plentiful, though a straight leg and dark indigo selvage denim is a classic (no jeggings, saggers or wackadoodle washes, please). Personally, I like the Los Angeles label Hiroshi Kato. Yes, they are expensive, but they wear like iron and go straight to the wash. (Cold only, please hang to dry.)

If you’re more comfortable in pants with side pockets or the looser work pants favored by young designers like Evan Kinorithere are great options available from Todd Snyder as well as labels Flaherty, General pharmacy and even a new rejigger Difference.

Forget the tie, but wear them with a decent jacket, a oxford pressed or even a crisp t-shirt and a good pair of shoes – which, believe it or not, are making a comeback. As I carry myself strollers almost exclusively, there is also a lot to be said for a pair of Closed Toe Birkenstocks.

You should feel comfortably well-dressed for most occasions other than your wedding or your day in court, but if you really want to break with personal tradition, take a cue from one of the best shows I’ve seen in ages. years and wear Issey Miyake head to toe.”

Central Avenue, the center of our global community


In a corner of a clothing store, Daniela Robledo twirls around, making the sequins and stones of her lilac dress sparkle.

“Oh my God! You look beautiful,” a customer tells her, watching.

The 15-year-old smiled shyly.

Daniela found her quinceañera dress for the first time six months ago. She is back this May day for her last fitting. Later that evening, her family will reunite with a dozen of Daniela’s relatives from Mexico and California. They will all sleep in his family’s two-bedroom house – on the floor, on makeshift beds and even in the bathtub.

And tomorrow, they’ll all be watching Daniela become a woman.

Turning 15 for many young Latin American women is celebrated with quinceañeras, a rite of passage symbolizing the transition from childhood to womanhood. Many, including Daniela, consider it one of the most important days of their lives.

And in Charlotte, there’s a 750-foot stretch along Central Avenue where you can get everything you need for that special occasion.

Young women can get their hair done at Yolanda’s Salon, before heading to Yolanda’s Creations — another Yolanda — to try on dresses, tiaras, jewelry and shoes. Next door is a florist who likes to help brainstorm unique floral designs for quinceañeras, and a short walk away is Manolo’s Bakery, an east Charlotte community staple for cakes and pan dulce.

Although Daniela turned 15 in January, she’s waited so long to welcome her quinceañera so she could wear a short-sleeved dress – and so her mum, whose birthday is the last week of April, could also throw a Party.

After all, a few months are nothing compared to 15 years of patience.

Daniela remembers watching YouTube videos of great quinceañeras as a little girl, dreaming of the day she could have her own.

“These girls would have their quinceañeras and it would still be so pretty…to wear a big puffy dress and feel like a princess for a day,” she said.

Robledo spent her youth watching shows about young Latin women having their quinceañera and dreaming of hers. As her sixteenth birthday approached, her parents asked her if she would like a car or a quinceañera, she chose the latter. Melissa Melvin Rodriguez mrodriguez@charlotteobserver.com

“When I was little, I thought it was just a big party and a big puffy dress…but (that’s) also the meaning of different things.

“It is we who enter into femininity.”

Daniela made reservations, chose decorations, and chose themes through an expensive planning process that has been going on for months.

Many young women choose to have their father give them a final gift, usually a doll or a teddy bear, during their quinceañera – a sort of “last” childhood present.

Daniela’s younger cousin, Angelina Trochez, introduces her to the teddy bear instead.

“We are like this,” Daniela said, raising her intertwined fingers to show how close they are.

Then, she rummages in her pockets to find the remotes controlling the lights in her dress. She clicks on it and clothing store owner Yolanda Sanchez turns on the lights.

Daniela shines.

Duo of sisters

Young women have been coming to Yolanda Sanchez to find their dream quinceañera dresses for over a decade.

Sanchez’s family owned a business in their home country of Mexico, and she enjoyed the experience of working without a boss enough to open a store in Charlotte.

Yolanda’s Creations has all the quinceañera essentials — jewelry, shoes, dolls, bears, dresses, tiaras — and even sells wedding dresses and first communion sets. Sanchez said there are fewer than 10 stores like his in Charlotte.

And because of the growing Latino community, the demand is relentless. Sanchez sells about 30 quinceañera dresses each month.

Daniela came to Sanchez’s store because that’s also where all her friends went.

Sanchez loves seeing the delight on customers’ faces when they find the perfect dress. She remembers the look on Daniela’s face when she found her lavender dress, instead of the rose gold she was originally looking for.

“It’s a really good time,” she said. “In the miror, [when] they say, ‘Wow, that’s my dress.’ That’s what I want.

“It makes me feel good.”

And after helping her customers choose complementary accessories, she sends them next – to her sister’s florist.

Ma Rosario Evans used to work in Sanchez’s store, making artificial flower arrangements, but opened her own store, Sweet Pea’s Floral and Gifts, about a year ago after seeing the need for a Spanish florist.

Since then, she’s taken classes and built her business “little by little,” she says.

Evans glows with pride as she flips through photos on her iPad of past arrangements – at weddings, birthdays and other events, including quinceañeras.

As for working alongside his sister, Evans couldn’t be happier.

“I’m very close to her,” she said. “I’m so happy to do this.”

Yolande’s living room

With four grown daughters, Yolanda Garcia knows a quinceañera well.

At her own quinceañera in Guatemala City decades ago, she remembers styling her own hair. Now, the “other Yolanda” in the square is making sure young women in Charlotte don’t have to do the same.

Hairstylist Raquel Romero said she sees 10 to 20 quinceañera clients each month.

For some of them, it’s the first time that they wear make-up and have their hair done. That’s why Romero takes his job so seriously.

“When they come here, they don’t have… makeup, they don’t have… hair [done],” she said. “You turn them from little girls into something amazing.”

She said some clients come in with ideas found on the internet, while others let Romero lead the way. And when she swings the chair around to face the mirror, Romero watches their faces light up.

“It’s a satisfaction for us,” she said.

Manolo Betancur

Manolo Betancur feels like he’s followed his clients through every stage of life, including, in some cases, quinceañeras.

The owner of Manolo’s Bakery started working there in 2005, before buying half of it in 2011 and becoming its sole owner in 2018.

“It’s our 25th anniversary. We have seen some people in families from childhood to adulthood,” he said. “We have clients who have been with us for so long, now their children are adults and they have grandchildren.”

CLT_CentralAve2_001.JPG

Stepping through the door, customers are greeted with a selection of pan dulce from the bakery – along with treats like churros, orejas and bunuelos, as well as specialties from Betancur’s home country, Colombia.

He is proud of his roots and it shows throughout the bakery. “Made in America, by immigrant hands,” reads a sticker at checkout.

“We are a party community,” Betancur said. “We always find a way to celebrate with your friends, to have fun, to smile, to laugh.”

And almost every weekend, Betancur and its employees celebrate young Latin American women at quinceañeras around town.

In April and May, the bakery receives about a dozen orders for quinceañera cakes, which are often elaborate, tiered party centerpieces that cost hundreds of dollars.

“I wish we had 10 quinceañera cakes every weekend because they pay really well,” Betancur said with a laugh.

But one quinceañera cake that Betancur is conflicted about making is his daughter’s in a few years. She is 10 years old, but she has already started planning.

“Right now I can see my daughter changing into this beautiful butterfly,” he said. “I’m going to cry that day like crazy.”

After visiting all these shops: Quinceañera

The rhinestones on Daniela’s tiara shimmered in the spotlight as she entered the room.

“I was really nervous walking in,” she said. “I actually forgot to light up my dress because of the nerves. But as soon as I walked in, I focused on memorizing the steps, forgot everything and started going with the flow.

A few hundred friends and family cheered as she took her place in the center, and the celebration began with a parade of gifts.

Finally, her little cousin approached her with the bear, dressed in matching shoes and dress, down to the cape.

Daniela thanked her and posed with the bear for the camera, while 8-year-old Trochez looked at her with wide eyes and a smile, thinking ahead.

Lionfish leather makes its first foray into fashion with sneaker label P448 – WWD https://kedsshoesforwomen.com/lionfish-leather-makes-its-first-foray-into-fashion-with-sneaker-label-p448-wwd/ Wed, 22 Jun 2022 04:02:14 +0000 https://kedsshoesforwomen.com/lionfish-leather-makes-its-first-foray-into-fashion-with-sneaker-label-p448-wwd/ The highly invasive lionfish may be the enemy of many marine wildlife habitats – but it also happens to be a fashionable (and regenerative) boon of a material.

The highly invasive lionfish may be the enemy of many marine wildlife habitats – but it also happens to be a fashionable (and regenerative) boon of a material.

Although human error led the species to enter waterways decades ago from recreational aquariums, the lionfish’s lack of known predators and rapid spawning advantage have made it a nightmarish problem that stretches from the Caribbean, from the Gulf of Mexico to the east coast. Today, the average lionfish kills 79% of native baby reef fish in five weeks and decimates entire food chains. A Florida-based startup called Inversa Leathers (founded by a group of scuba divers in 2020) hopes to tackle the problem while offering an alternative to high-end leather that replaces exotics.

“Invasive species don’t happen by accident. This is a man-made problem. Now is the time for us to take responsibility,” Deepika Nagarajan, chief marketing officer of Inversa Leathers, told WWD. After being named a finalist in the Ocean Risk and Resilience Action Alliance competition, the start-up unveils its first commercial fashion collaboration in partnership with Italian sneaker brand P448 which will be released on June 28. -to-market we had but this is just the start of a long journey.

Launched in five colorways, the P448 sneaker is available in red, pink, blue, silver and black. It will be available in a limited edition at the Le Bon Marché department store in Paris.

As well as boasting Mark Wahlberg as a strategic investor, P448 boasts a number of global artist collaborations that draw attention and calls for sustainability with the lionfish as its most recent piece and the more known. The label opened its first pop-up outlet in the United States on Fifth Avenue (celebrating graffiti walls, arcade games and a speakeasy out back) in September 2021. In total, around 1,400 stores in the world carry the label, with North America being the main market. .

Not just a “cool fashion product that also saves the planet,” in Nagarajan’s words, each sneaker is equivalent to one lionfish removed and tens of thousands of native reef fish saved.

Hoping to popularize the concept of “invasive leathers” as a replacement for exotics, the high-end material also has local enthusiasts (be they fishermen or biologists). The company works with local fishing cooperatives in Quintana Roo, Mexico, guaranteeing the fishermen’s risk with a 100% catch guarantee and providing upfront financing for materials. Inversa Leathers produces and tans its hides in the United States, with the tanning being done in Cincinnati according to Reach certifications.

Aarav Chavda, co-founder and CEO of Inversa Leathers, said tanning lionfish skin takes just 200ml (or less than a cup per skin) compared to common bovine leather. That works out to 55 square inches on average (best tuned for smaller accessories), or 600ml per square foot. Third-party testing and an ACL are also underway to prove performance attributes.

As for fishing cooperatives, Chavda said, “These are places where a lot of social enterprises and public funds don’t really exist. They know lionfish but they can’t get paid for it. They have to get money for it.

Florida has one of the largest artificial reef resilience programs in the country, and marine biologists like Alex Fogg, a coastal resource manager from Okaloosa County, Florida, see how it all happens underwater.

After a site visit for the reef deployment (using concrete and limestone as simulated reef structures for marine wildlife), Fogg spoke about the invasiveness of lionfish. “We realized we’re never going to get rid of the lionfish… The more things you can identify to do with the lionfish, the more you can do to mitigate it.” This is where Fogg says creativity and local solutions help. A collaborative solution is for the region to host the largest lionfish tournament in the world which saw 11,000 lionfish removed in May.

The possibilities are pretty endless, with lionfish being a healthy, premium fish to eat, an alternative to leather, and a jewelry material (fins and spine contorted into jewelry). Fogg said the local market rate for lionfish is around $6.25 per pound, compared to around $4 per pound for grouper. He also said, as with many sustainability survey findings, “people don’t mind paying extra for lionfish, given the story behind it.”

With a round of investment to be announced in the coming days for Inversa Leathers, the only way to win over may be definition-bound vegans.

“The dialogue around this has been quite enlightening for us,” Nagarajan said. “Recently, we had some comments on LinkedIn about this. People tend to recognize that it’s about “protecting other species” and protecting biodiversity. We haven’t had as much trouble getting people to understand that as we thought.

Nicky Hilton was the picture of summer style while out for a walk in New York with husband James Rothschild, with whom she is expecting her third child.

On Sunday afternoon, the French Sole collaborator – who caused a stir this weekend at the Alice + Olivia 20th anniversary celebration – strolled through SoHo in a flowing white maxi dress. The number, featuring a ruffled neckline, was covered in a light blue canvas print for a romantic finish. Following her affinity for color coordination, Hilton also carried a sky blue Hermés Kelly handbag with gold hardware and tied a matching cashmere sweater around her shoulders. To complete her look, a thin silver bracelet and a pair of round sunglasses, as well as her daughter’s neon pink scooter.

As for shoes, Hilton’s shoes of choice were also summer worthy. The “365 Style” author stepped up her look with a pair of beige flip flops. The minimalist style featured thin pale pink straps down the front, allowing breathability against the summer heat while making the Hilton dress the focal point.

Strappy sandals like these from Hilton are an easy way to elevate a warm-weather look, whether dressed up or down. Neutral pairs with thin straps and flat soles or short heels are the best picks this season due to their minimalist silhouettes and ability to be easily slipped on and off. In addition to Hilton, stars such as Miley Cyrus, Kendall Jenner and Dua Lipa have also worn Chanel, Coperni and Miu Miu sandals in recent weeks.

Though her affinity for pointy heels — especially Manolo Blahnik’s — is legendary, Hilton is no stranger to laid-back style. The star wore a pair of similar flat sandals – also with a flowing floral dress – while posing for a pregnancy photo shoot earlier this season.

When it comes to footwear, Hilton’s styles are glamorous and chic, with a nod to her early 2000 years in the spotlight. The star often favors pointed-toe, platform pumps in neutral tones from Valentino, Chanel and Dior. Her red carpet looks feature similar styles adorned with bows and crystals by Mach & Mach, Giannico and Rene Caovilla. When it comes to dressing outside of work, Hilton wears pointed flats from her own French Sole line, as well as Adidas sneakers.

While you and your SO were already sharing t-shirts, shorts, hoodies, sweatshirts and pants, there has also been a global fashion movement to lower prescriptive beauty standards and promote self-love and confidence for all body types and genders. Read: Unisex clothing is legit and here to stay. It’s progressive, inclusive, and hopefully the future of fashion. From fast fashion giants to high-end brands, everyone got it, which is why you now see so many celebrities indulging in comfy, oversized sweatshirts or t-shirts and biker shorts. Once considered rebellious or androgynous, you don’t have to be Harry Styles, Billy Porter or Ranveer Singh to jump on this trend – now you can just walk into a store and not have to ask “Where’s the men’s section?” /women ?” ”


That’s because streetwear, at its core, is an ideology as much as a fashion style. Some of the most exciting developments in this ideology have occurred around the world, and “a new version of streetwear designers is emerging in India with the same ethos of creativity, community and attitude today in India as well”, notes fashion designer Nida Mahmood.


Get the normcore look (outfits by six5six; boots by Mango)


Stay Normcore

Normcore subculture style simply means basic, functional and unassuming clothing to help you fit into the crowd. Think comfy tees, sensible sneakers, baggy jeans, oversized silhouettes and baseball caps, or coordinated unisex outfits with no bling, no red carpet glamour, just staples.

have the look

Opt for boyfriend jeans, looser at the hips but with a normal waist. The cowboy pants seen here are inspired by illustrations seen in children’s books, while the barcoded pants are a little funkier – scan them and they’ll send you to the brand’s website.

Graphic tees add cozy comfort; leather belts and metal chains add a dash of punk-rock glamour. Stick to the norm and complete the look with patent leather shoes.


“Inspiration for streetwear can come from anything on the streets: street culture, street music and even phrases; fashion is just the way to express it,” says Avni Aneja, co-founder of six5six.


Prints have no gender (Outfit by Huemn; Shoes by Zara)

Gender Fluidity in Print

Brands are launching collections that are not limited to specific colors or distinct cuts for girls, boys, men or women. Instead, they are “genderless” in that the fashion is fluid, not inherently masculine or feminine, and the styles can accommodate all body types.


have the look

The term “gender fluidity” may now have replaced “unisex” and refers to garments that can transition smoothly from men’s to women’s wardrobes, regardless of craftsmanship, prints and colors.

If you want to add some feminine chic to a look like this, opt for polka dot mules, bling highlights and pendants, along with the crop top and leggings, and you’ll be set to pull off a streetwear luxe look that’s all carpet. red.

“We are creatures of change, and fashion has to be exciting or it will lose its purpose. But it should also be a perfect addition to your wardrobe,” says Pranav Misra, co-founder and creative director of Huemn.


Gendered Fashion Isn’t As Hard As You Think (Outfit by Huemn; Pants and Shoes by Mango)


Jhe looks kind-bender

Gender-neutral fashion redefines self-expression. Designers use this gendered storytelling to add a distinct brand language to their brands.

have the look

Stick to a black and white ensemble and you’ll never go wrong achieving a gender-specific look.

A printed t-shirt with ankle-length pants or culottes is very trendy.

“We perceive clothing as independent of trends, seasons and gender. It has more to do with the wearer’s individualistic expression and how they want to represent themselves. When choosing an outfit, you have to think about the message they want to project through their clothes,” says fashion designer Rahul Misra.


Couple goals? (On Deepu: Icho shirt; H&M t-shirt; H-Star pants. On Akshita: Icho shirt; H&M t-shirt; Zara pants)


The twinning phenomenon

Pairing couples no longer squeal. Now, couples who make the same clothing choices and wear matching color combinations are actually trending!

have the look

An oversized shirt and matching bottom is an easy, pre-planned outfit that can be worn with any shoe you desire, whether it’s sneakers or slip-ons.

Always opt for comfortable silhouettes and simultaneously allow movement for different body types; sparkling prints add a fun element to the design.

“Unisex clothing has become the need of the hour because it is easy to carry and practical, but also versatile to style. Especially street style, because the silhouettes are the most comfortable and easy to change to match a taste. and wardrobe requirements,” says fashion designer Kunal Anil Tanna.

The arartistic streetwear

Many new brands are working towards sustainability, recycling dead fabrics into something usable.

Designer Dhruv Khurana fell in love with abstract impressionism and conceptual art and eventually spawned an artistic streetwear brand called Almost Gods.


have the look

The powerful imagery of natural disasters of erupting volcanoes and wildfires is captured in printed pants. He is clubbed in a black and white cobweb print t-shirt. A sturdy pair of sneakers rest the eyes from the powerful visual drama.

The look was created from the collection inspired by a quote from Edward O. Wison, an American sociobiologist: “We have paleolithic emotions, medieval institutions and divine technology.

“Streetwear is a kind of casual wear, but if handled with high craftsmanship, it can be turned into fashionable wear,” says Nida Mahmood.


Take your cause, literally. (Crop top and skirt by Almost Gods)

Socially Conscious Fashionistas

Designers are trying different ways to educate fashionistas about climate change and other issues through their craft. Heat mapping is a data visualization technique used to show the magnitude of a phenomenon as color in two dimensions. The color variation can be hue or intensity, giving the reader obvious visual cues as to how the phenomenon is clustered or varies in space. Do you remember the weather report on the news showing the temperature around the world in red and blue?

have the look

Go for printed heat mapping details and show that you are an aesthetically and socially conscious fashionista.

Tell the world about the consequences of climate change: pair the Heat Map stretch crop top with a long bodycon skirt. Balance this with a solid stocking in fine jersey. Finally, a multi-layered silver string choker adds bling to the look.

“It’s important to invest in pieces that will remain relevant to us for many years to come and will have their own story to tell. Eventually, these pieces become stories themselves, and that’s the best thing,” explains fashion designer Rahul Misra.

Jay-Z and Blue Ivy made the ultimate father-daughter pair in San Francisco for Game 5 of the NBA Finals. Ahead of Father’s Day, the duo sat courtside yesterday to watch the game at Chase Center, where the Golden State Warriors took on the Boston Celtics.

For the occasion, Jay-Z went casual in a black t-shirt with white corner graphics and black joggers. The Tiffany & Co. campaign star finished her look with a gold watch, white socks and monochrome white lace-up Puma sneakers with perforated toes. Blue Ivy was equally dressed to complement her dad, similarly dressed in black joggers with a graphic tee. However, a leather moto jacket and big hoop earrings — a signature mum Beyoncé — along with black and white leather Nike sneakers gave her an edge.

However, Blue and Jay-Z’s pairing moment wasn’t the only superstar moment of the night for the 10-year-old. Blue also met Stephen Curry at the game, congratulating the basketball star with his dad after the Warriors’ win over the Celtics.

When it comes to shoes, Jay-Z is a renowned shoe collector with a colorful array of stylish styles from Puma, Air Jordan and Reebok. For formal occasions and the red carpet, the star typically swaps sporty styles for pointed loafers or lace-up brogues from luxury brands like Tom Ford and Santoni. The rapper is also a star in the fashion world, collaborating on merchandise with Ford and becoming the new face of Tiffany & Co. alongside his wife Beyoncé this year.

On the footwear front, Blue Ivy is already becoming a footwear master in its own right. Often seen in sneakers that complement her ensembles, styles previously worn by the star by Converse and Jeremy Scott x Adidas over the years, as well as casual shoes like Fendi combat boots and Marc Jacobs flats. On the red carpet, the same silhouettes gain glamor with accents like sequins and crystals, sourced from top brands like Ruthie Davis and Giuseppe Zanotti.

Elle Fanning looked utterly stylish in Santa Monica, Calif., as she attended American Cinemathique’s tribute to her career this weekend.

The ‘Girl from Plainville’ star arrived at the organization’s Aero Theater on Friday for a Q&A between screenings of two of her projects: an episode of the Hulu drama series ‘The Great’ and the musical drama of 2018 “Teen Spirit”. For the occasion, Fanning wore a floaty black Khaite dress with long balloon sleeves and a flowing skirt. Fanning’s ensemble was cinched with a studded leather belt and completed with delicate gold bracelets.

“Thank you @am_cinematheque for this retrospective. A big word for a 24 year old, but it means a lot!” Fanning captioned a post from the occasion on instagram. “I absolutely loved being able to answer questions tonight and share a TV series and movie that both mark significant moments in my career so far.”

Fanning’s ensemble was completed with square-toed shoes with black leather uppers. The pair gained an extra edge with the studded inserts at the top of their toes, also creating a complementary moment alongside Fanning’s dress and belt. Although the heels of the shoes weren’t fully visible, the pair added an edge to the actress’ outfit while remaining sleek and contemporary.

That’s not Fanning’s only bold moment in recent weeks. The actress recently posed for Gucci as she attended the brand’s ‘Cosmologinie’ 2023 fashion show in Puglia, wearing leather and metal platform boots.

Fanning has her favorite shoe rotation for red carpets and appearances. Platform sandals and pointy-toe pumps are the ‘Maleficent’ star’s usual pairings, hailing from brands including Miu Miu, Christian Louboutin and Marc Jacobs. In recent months, her feminine style has also acquired a more elegant touch and amplified glamor thanks to towering platform pumps and artistic heels from Cristahlea, Loewe and Mach & Mach.

Ottessa Moshfegh is on Depop, just like you https://kedsshoesforwomen.com/ottessa-moshfegh-is-on-depop-just-like-you/ Fri, 10 Jun 2022 14:14:12 +0000 https://kedsshoesforwomen.com/ottessa-moshfegh-is-on-depop-just-like-you/ Here’s a fun hypothesis for you: what if your favorite novelist sold vintage clothes at the Brooklyn Flea?

Here’s a fun hypothesis for you: what if your favorite novelist sold vintage clothes at the Brooklyn Flea? What if she now had a Depop account where you could see vintage outfits from the 60s and vintage Coach bags? This hypothetical is a reality for fans of Ottessa Moshfegh, author of surreal and disturbing novels like My year of rest and relaxation and Eileen, who started a Depop under her own name during the pandemic, selling her own clothes she wore to photo shoots and readings, as well as gems she found while searching through thrift stores.

The account has just over a thousand followers right now, a small enough number of followers that it sounds like something to those in the know. It also comes at a time when people are obsessed with the Depop lives of celebrities. People can’t get enough of seeing Bella wearing low-rise Von Dutch jeans she bought on the app (and trying to figure out what her account is in the app). treat). This writer can’t get enough of Ottessa sale the dress she wore to accept the PEN/Hemingway Award for Eileen. But make no mistake, Moshfegh throwing a Depop is more than a pandemic hobby, it’s something she’s been doing for years. In fact, more than a decade ago, before writing any bestsellers, she was a graduate student at Brown University and came to Brooklyn on weekends to run a booth.

Moshfegh fell in love with vintage like many of us: she had a cool older sister. His sister Starvi, Moshfegh says on Zoom, was the original maverick in his life who took Moshfegh on a trip to his local vintage store, The Garment District, just outside of Boston. The two would rummage for hours through a pile of big dollar-a-pound clothes. Moshfegh got some of his first big plays there. She also developed an obsession with hunting. “I was totally addicted,” she laughs. From then on, she always had her eyes open, often going to estate sales, relishing in the excitement of discovery. “From a very young age, I was rummaging through people’s clothes,” she says, “As a person who loves stories, I would feel like a detective walking through their house, rummaging through someone’s closet and trying on her evening coats and shoes.”

In her twenties, she took her obsession with finding clothes for herself and turned it into a source of income. It was out of necessity. Moshfegh fell ill with cat-scratch fever and was too sick to stand all day at a standard job. She opened an Etsy shop called No Makeup, and started figuring out what was selling quickly, then continued buying trips to meet that demand. She realized that people loved vintage Coach jumpsuits and bags, so she started buying all the vintage Coach jumpsuits and bags she could find. As she had more business, she hooked up with a friend with a booth at the Brooklyn Flea. Her friend offered to share the booth, and Moshfegh began selling her clothes to women in Brooklyn. “Every weekend I would pack up my shitty Volvo with all my wares and go to Brooklyn and sell it to you know, cool girls in Fort Greene,” she says. She was selling everything and kept buying trips to replenish her stock. Like many sequined evening wear she bought at an auction in Providence. She once bought a vintage wedding dress and sold it to a bride-to-be. “It was this spontaneous wedding dress shopping experience. Her girlfriends were there and they were like, ‘Oh my god.’ I had the feeling that he was destined to find her.

WNBA players are keeping it on their courts with serious style and adding neon colors to their summer fashion.

As the WNBA season progresses, each game becomes an opportunity for exciting news. This week’s program ended an impressive seven-game winning streak and several players with outfits dominated by neon green clothing. If a game’s geographic location influences fashion, it seems that games in Los Angeles inspire gamers to wear their brightest colors.

In the sixth edition of “The W in Designer: Flyest Fits of the Week”, several players pay homage to the W’s history, such as San Antonio Stars player Nikki McCray, through clothing. Other players keep it on their home courts while wearing graphic tees and local designers to give their city a shout. As some rookies begin to make an impact on their teams, returning veterans approach pre-game fashion with the mindset of a true champion and the designer drip that goes with it.
