Hermès takes Manhattan



Hermes AW24 New York Theo Werner

My SS24 trend report picked up on the major appetite for leather, and of course Hermès comes top of the leather lust list.

Hermès just showed the second ‘chapter’ of its AW24 collection in New York – a seductive, cinematic portrayal of wearable-yet-sexy (for straight-laced Hermès) leather trousers, jumpsuits, outerwear and abundant Mapplethorpe-esque caps that some thought dominated the show, but I rather loved. (Once a stylist always a stylist.)

Dior paid a similar tribute to Manhattan recently – although slightly less well received. Anyway, expect to see variations on the black leather jumpsuit, mariner caps and voluminous jackets flooding the market, not forgetting the all-important Hermès Kelly pocket belt. And if you can’t commit to those, there’s always a silk Hermès carré, folded and tucked into a skinny leather belt.

Quote of the day: Naomi Rea, Artnet News



Art Basel Shop tote

“Access to this world is aspirational and offering a piece of it at a more affordable price point expands the customer base significantly. Now, the casual visitors over the weekend…can say they bought something at Art Basel and can signal their membership in the art tribe.”

Sarah Andelman’s latest venture at Art Basel is a “Colette” for the art set.

It makes perfect sense.

Opening this week, the Art Basel Shop is a physical-only (aka no online presence) ‘ephemeral concept store’ for Basel-goers, selling gift-shop style art memorabilia and lifestyle products for merch lovers. Think Keith Haring x Caran d’Ache pens, David Shrigley prints and Carrie Mae Weems plates.

The culture of fashion: Go to the Nightclub with silk shirts on



Ibiza 89 book by Dave Swindells

As Ibiza season kicks in, I’m reposting my article for Faith Fanzine that was originally published in print last summer. It seems the heady, hedonistic days of 80s rave and club culture are never far from a fashion designer’s moodboard. As photographer and former Time Out clubs editor Dave Swindells celebrates his fourth print run of photobook, IBIZA 89 (above), we mused on what the scene symbolised and why it’s an eternal source of style inspo (more…)



Shop the post: double shirts in the wild



Popeye City Boy Style

Now the sweaters are off, it’s time to think about shirts. Why wear one when you can wear two (or three)? A small button-down under a bigger one worn undone. Two identical, worn unbuttoned over a tee. Two different styles, or the same style with contrasting stripes.

Take some inspo from these examples in the wild – I will… (more…)
