Schitt's Creek and SAG Awards, Amanda Gorman and Vogue, and Stanley Tucci and Searching for Italy
Clockwise from Top.
The final season of Schitt’s Creek won big at last week’s SAG Awards, but the real winners were Daniel Levy’s and Catherine O’Hara’s outfits:
Daniel changed mid-show from The Row into Dries Van Noten, while Catherine O’Hara was in a sequined Thom Browne tuxedo. It’s been interesting to see Daniel’s taste evolve from Tisci-era Givenchy to a loud-yet-refined Dries. We’ll be watching to see what designer he moves onto next.
We also discovered a hidden world of kitschy Schitt’s Creek merch - like this coffee mug, this Moira Rose prayer candle, this notebook aka My Schitt List, this motel room key fob, and this Rose Apothecary sweatshirt.
Our favorite National Youth Poet Laureate is on the cover of this month’s Vogue:
Gorman stole the show at Biden’s inauguration in January, and quickly signed with IMG Models. Here, she’s wearing a Louis Vuitton piece inspired by Virgil Abloh’s Ghanian mother. There is also a second cover shot in a Dior Couture dress. Maria Grazia Chiuri of Dior, one of the few women leading a couture house, is known for championing young intellectual women.
It’s not surprising to see the care and attention Vogue gave to this issue, after the backlash surrounding its Kamala Harris cover shoot (that we detailed here).
We’re big fans of Gorman, and are expecting to see a lot more from her over the coming years.
Our show for this week was Searching For Italy, which consists almost entirely of Stanley Tucci traveling around Italy eating and shouting “Delicioso” after every bite.
As you can imagine, it’s full of beautiful Italian vistas, hill towns, and carbs and cheese and pork. You’d think it gets old, but it doesn’t. We can’t wait to get back to Italy.
Pro tip: Don’t watch it on CNN.com which, despite producing the show, makes it almost impossible to find and watch on their website (though, it is free).
Italian label Sunnei released these trippy rubberized earrings that have been making the rounds. This is the showstopper image from their IG account:
Raquel calls these “taffy earrings” because they look delicious. (Side note: there is really good taffy at this place in Santa Cruz). They also have a lot of other simpler options - like a basic black option or these dipped versions. Raquel likes this lilac one most.
We’re in to the Birkenstock meets huarache look, but wondering whether the students got paid for their design work? And finally Our Legacy and Stüssy released another capsule this week. The best piece is this reversible shearling vest:
Nordstrom is adding a selection of Dover Street Market-backed brands to Olivia Kim’s Space retail concepts in NYC and LA. They make for strange bedfellows, considering both Nordstrom and DSM are third party retailers, and in theory are competitors.
James Gilchrist, VP of Dover Street Market and CDG:
The days of retailers being territorial and fighting over exclusivity are totally over and not at all interesting. DSM has always been about collaboration and sharing space with kindred spirits.
While Kim and Gilchrist are playing nice here, don’t be fooled. Nordstrom and DSM may not directly compete when it comes to the DSM-backed brands that will be participating in this pop up, including Vaquera and ERL, but when it comes to allocations of CDG Play sneakers, for example, you can bet Nordstrom and CDG argue all the time over those budgets.
Opponents of tax increases on the wealthy have forever argued that even the slightest incremental change will send New Yorkers fleeing to income-tax-free Florida. Now we will have an opportunity to see how many people making $2 million a year will really move from the Upper East Side to South Beach — a location where climate models predict two feet or more of sea-level rise by 2060 — for a savings equal to the cost of a five-year-old Chevy Malibu. These are people who essentially require grief counseling when their children are forced to go to Vassar. Are they really going to pull their children out of elite private schools that have fed the Ivy League for hundreds of years to settle down in a place with a diet named after it?
