Dear Louis Vuitton, please put Grace in charge of menswear already!
The Wales Bonner ‘Horizon Blues’ SS23 collection is a wonderful evocation of ‘European heritage meets Afro Atlantic spirit’.

Something to look forward to in January: Pretend It’s a City on Netflix, a film series about the evolution of New York City over the past several decades, narrated by my favourite New Yorker, Fran Lebowitz with Martin Scorsese. Mark your calendar for January 8th.
UPDATE: OK I’ve started watching and if you rate Fran, you’ll love it. I didn’t realise it’s a series! Martin Scorsese is very sweet, chuckling at Fran’s rants
