In This Golden Age of Indie Magazines, Interview Folds?

Almost half a century after it was founded by Andy Warhol, Interview magazine, the arts and fashion publication, has shuttered. We are in a golden age of indie magazines, so it’s even sadder and weirder to me that one of the earliest groundbreaking publications was struggling. Farewell, Interview.

Resort 2019

Givenchy’s New Bag

Givenchy creative director Clare Waight Keller’s royal wedding dress completely overshadowed the Resort 2019 images released last week. The designer’s fifth collection for Givenchy is probably my favorite so far and I’m getting a better sense of her vision for the house.

A few years ago I did a major handbag clean-out and gave away all of my Chanel and Hermès bags, save two. These quilted ones in both beige and green have zoomed to the top of my wish list—the hardware and shape make them modern and completely covetable.

Net-A-Porter

Sale On!

The Net-A-Porter sale launched this morning and there are a number of really good items left.  I’ve yet to buy a dress in a print and this one is kind of perfect except it needs either a slip dress underneath or a jacket on top. I have these pumps in grey and love them and this bag is a classic.

Fave Re-Run

Daria in Sweden

Daria

Interview has shuttered so I thought I’d re-run one of my all-time favorite stories from the famed magazine.

Mikael Jansson photographed Daria Werbowy in the Swedish archipelago for the September 2014 issue of Interview. The story is stark and breathtakingly beautiful.

Long Over Shorts

Thank you, KL, for the heads-up on this great dress by Frame—would be super over black shorts, too. Maybe a pair of Saint Laurent slides in saddle…

To-Do

Rainy Saturday Ahead

I’m okay that it’s going to rain tomorrow, there are only indoor activities on my to-do list. Good thing I’m an early riser even on the weekend, I’d like to see a bit of the royal wedding. Then Claiborne Swanson Frank is doing a book signing here in town at The Locust Valley Bookstore from 11-1. Several of the women and their children featured in Mother and Child are out here. And “Deadpool 2”, can’t wait.

P.S. The book signing was cancelled and my daughter gave “Deadpool 2” a tepid review. At least Givenchy creative director Clare Waight Keller’s wedding dress is beautiful.

Cool Collaboration

Launching Tonight: Tomas Maier x UNIQLO

Tomas Maier, creative director for Bottega Veneta and designer of his own eponymous line, is the newest collaborator with UNIQLO and the collection launches tonight at 9pm. “The essential beach-inspired collection” is packed with off-duty staples. This easy-breezy dress is cute in white, too.

Tom Wolfe

Author Tom Wolfe will always be remembered for The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby and his white suits. One summer while in college I read all of the books that he’d written up to that point and loved them all. Thank you for the wonderful stories and style inspiration, Mr. Wolfe.

Simple Swim: Rihanna in June Vogue

There are a lot of simple black one-piece swimsuits right now, I will put some of my favorites into the kic shop (and identify these two in the June issue of Vogue).

I agree with Margot’s comment, Eres makes good-looking and very wearable swimsuits.

Marie Claire Italia October 1998

Timeless: Twenty Years Later

When this Marie Claire Italia story came out in the October 1998 issue, I tore out every page and pinned them to my inspiration board—I literally thumb-tacked the pages to a cork board over my desk. Twenty years later they are still some of my favorite pictures and the clothes are the epitome of timeless.

As I write this I’m cocooned in sweaters while getting emails announcing that spring/summer merchandise is going on sale. Pre-Fall will be in stores soon. I’d more likely be wearing pieces from the latter right now than the little dresses and sandals being marked down. My point is, like the fall clothes in this story, it’s about buying evergreen items and wearing them even when it’s 50º in May. Truly seasonless dressing.
