Clockwise from Top.
ALT passed away last week. He was truly a media pioneer, paving the way for many people of color in the industry.
Raquel and her family bumped into ALT and Karl Lagerfeld at the Tribeca Nobu (also RIP) in the late 2000’s. He was gracious and friendly, and was wearing a large robe with a repeat print of naked men. Lots of photos were taken, and Raquel took it as a sign to move from California to NYC.
Combing through our phones and the depths of Facebook, it seems that the photos have been lost. Do celebrities take their photos with them when they pass?1
Last week was a busy week for shows. Jil Sander had plenty of tailoring-meets-crochet moments. Lots of brooches on the models. And they played Panda Bear and Animal Collective at the show. (Raquel wants to buy this leopard coat.)
Referencing the infinite possibilities and absurdities of the Metaverse, Loewe had a number of WTF looks - transparent leather coats, teddy Uggs, Seussian finger fringe and bags as shoes. Not to be outdone, Rick Owens walked lighting fixtures down the runway.
Prada closed its meditation on workwear with noted Prada-phile Jeff Goldblum. Pretty corny and self-referential, but it got lots of press coverage. His campiness probably would have been a better choice for a resort show!
Finally, something about this image at Dries Van Noten. ❤️
Lots of footwear on the runways.
CDG x Nike (sorry gross leg on model)
Bottega took a different tack - emphasizing the house’s strong color sense by pushing the color tangerine, which is linked to success and happiness in Chinese culture.
They also took over parts of the Great Wall with a digital installation. It’s a great example of localized culture meeting brand consistency.
