More Fall Reads

I’m trying to finish Sally Rooney’s Beautiful Life, Where Are You? before Jonathan Franzen’s new novel, Crossroads, comes out tomorrow — I’ve been asked to lead the discussion on it at book club next month.  Slim Aarons: Style, co-authored by my friend Kate Betts, is available October 19 — I can never get enough of his pictures. “In the summer of 1971, Michael Lesy and a friend found most of the snapshots in Snapshots 1971–77 in a dumpster behind a gigantic photo-processing plant in San Francisco. The photos were in the trash because the machines that printed them made them so fast — duplicates, triplicates, quadruplicates — that the people on the processing line couldn’t stop them.” I just picked up Snapshots 1971-77 and it is such a cool idea. And the second issue of Vogue Scandinavia and the new issue of The Gentlewoman are winging their way to me.

Hermès: Wear Forever Clothes

A gorgeous SS22 Hermès show and I want to really see each look, not just the video. To be continued.

Also, How To Spend It has a fantastic profile on Nadège Vanhée-Cybulski, the head of womenswear, in this weekend’s magazine.

Valentino: Pretty Please

Lots of beautiful details in the Valentino SS22 show. Sometimes I just crave pretty.

On My Radar

Totême: It’s A Cinch

I love a belted coat, but I’m not a fan of robe style — looks messy when unbelted and my coat is open 90% of the time. However, this one by Totême could sway me. Love the belted poncho, too.

On My Mind

A Brilliant Bit of Styling in WSJ. Magazine

This Celine look from the FW21 collection is a brilliant bit of styling. The asymmetric neckline is a nice alternative to a tee or button-down and I’m sure there are numerous non-cropped options. This image is from a stunning  WSJ. Magazine story by Annemarieke van Drimmelen and styled by Géraldine Saglio.

Random Bits

A good dress is a beautiful thing, and this vintage Calvin Klein on Rebecca Longendyke is my idea of perfection. Miuccia Prada’s headscarf and gold bracelet are the epitome of chic. And the belt over the untucked shirt is a nice old-school look.

Hermès Café Clogs

Do I need the Hermès clogs in café? Nope. Do I want them? Yep. But, I think I prefer them with a dark brown sole, like the ones on @alexandragolovanoff below. I suspect that hers are the runway version and were a gift from the designer.

Isabelle Huppert In This Weekend’s Financial Times

I’m a huge fan of actor Isabelle Huppert and Financial Times has a must-read Q&A with her in this weekend’s How To Spend It. The styling is really good, too.

The Perfect Poncho

One of my favorite looks in the Chloé FW21 collection is a puffer/poncho hybrid. On the runway it was too long for my liking, however, this shorter version in black and navy is pretty perfect — sigh.
