Coming soon: a Lauren Manoogian store



Lauren Manoogian pre-spring 24

Spring is almost here but it’s still cold AF and I’m not quite ready to give up the four-ply. Good news for NYC readers; Lauren Manoogian (above) is getting ready to open her first store in Broome Street, where you can envelope yourself in her signature alpaca sweaters, robe-y cardigans and humungous scarves. Closer to home, we Brits can get them from Harrods*, Selfridges*, Net-a-Porter* and Couverture*.

Meanwhile, Paris Fashion Week has kicked off with a show of MA graduates’ work at the Institut Francais de la Mode, attended by Brigitte Macron, including Kira Zander’s sculptural, textural knits (below). I’ll take them all.

Costume designer Wendy Chuck on cinematography, colour choices and cultural references



The Holdovers costume designer Wendy Chuck

“Sometimes things happen on the day and I remember the day that Angus sits in the background reading in a tan sweater and noticed the chair was the same color and I brought it up to Alex and Eigil and they were happy to leave it as it was and it actually works that he’s blending into the chair as he’s starting to feel more comfortable there.”

Never not fascinated by film costumes designers.

Classiq has a great interview with The Holdovers costume designer Wendy Chuck, who talks about cultural references, colour choices and her relationship with cinematographer Eigil Bryld. I was a big fan of Angus’s (played by Dominic Sessa) knitwear that worked so perfectly with his 1970s collegiate surroundings.

Miuccia Prada is a Vogue cover girl



Miuccia Prada Vogue March cover 24

UK Vogue had 40 celebs on its cover, but US Vogue has Miuccia Prada. I know which one I’m more thrilled about!

TBF, I don’t get excited about Vogues these days, but I do love a Miuccia profile. The cover is fresh and casual and of course I’m loving the inside shots of Mrs Prada (as she prefers to be known) in her uniform of prim skirt, boxy short sleeve knit and trademark slither of white tee to uplight the face.

There are also accompanying images of Gigi Hadid wearing archive Prada, although as someone at The Fashion Spot suggested, I’d have preferred an OG like Carolyn Murphy.

Read the profile here.

Ballet-core meets actors-in-rehearsal at Altuzarra AW24



Altuzarra AW24

“I wanted it to feel like walking into someone’s wardrobe that they’ve collected over a long period of time, where things feel like they say something about the person’s personality.”

Joseph Altuzarra* celebrated his 15th anniversary with an intimate salon show that mixed the cosplay romance of ballet and theatre – the clothes that actors wear in rehearsal – with upscale wardrobe longevity. To that end, there were long, roomy girl-about-town coats layered over fluid, calf-length skirts, flat pumps and opaque dancers’ tights, peacoats and duffles, Deborah Turbeville-style cuffed knit joggers, plus great styling from Pierrot doll collars and toque-style hats.

The result: the kind of real-life fashion that you see in a Becky Malinsky or Leandra Medine Substack that’s easy to put your own poetic stamp on. See more here.
