Reading Into Things

Who says fashion stories aren’t riveting? I’ve been catching up on some reading, and on this Thanksgiving weekend, I am grateful for the inspiration from a few wonderful women.

Reading Cathy Horyn’s Alaïa: Double Take was like watching a film trailer for the Spring collection (the images didn’t load for me when I looked at the article…the words were enough for me to visualize).

Note the mention of not one, but two LeBons. Sigh.

Note the Japanese fabric reference. Sigh. (B is adding Alaïa to her SS11 shopping list, to be sure!).

Note the new collection/python + lace/trellis shoe reference. Faint.

I was also literally on the edge of my seat when reading Garance Doré’s account of ze Masquerade Ball. I am capitalizing it because you know the one I am speaking of – Vogue’s 90th burrs-zay fête.

That was the night I had a Parisian pout all evening, because I, unlike Garance did not receive Carine’s last-minute invitation (I know, I know, she is so busy.)

The story continues in Part Two (get a cuppa tea or a glassa wine before diving in).

I also read two wonderful profiles – one on Sally Singer by Kim Hastreiter in Paper mag and the other on Angela Ahrendts by Nancy Hass in the Wall Street Journal.

All of these pieces collectively reminded me of my absolute adoration of fashion. I am slowly starting to come back to it after months of creative pause.

Hope you find inspiration in these words also, my dears. They ignited a spark in me…
