  • Reinventing the Boring Blouse

    With inspiration from Oslo Fashion Week. This spring and summer, button-down blouses (like every other top) got an off-the-shoulder update.

  • Perfume, Power, and God

    My first connection to smell was the smell of holy water and sacrament, the second was the smell of my mother’s Buddhist temple.

    Finally, after months of creepers and furry slides, Rihanna’s debut clothing collection for Puma is about to hit stores.

  • Would You, Could You, Wear Summer Velvet?

    Kendall Jenner and Taylor Swift have been pushing the plush fabric in a major way this summer — and I, for one, am here for it. When I first moved to New York City 11 years ago, it wasn’t the promise of endless West Village brunches, Magnolia Bakery cupcakes, or nights out in the Meatpacking…

    It is, however, a fabric that says a lot about how Americans have mixed work and leisure from the 1940s to now. "I think people have an affinity for khaki because it’s traditionally been, since the 1940s, this limbo land between dresswear and casualwear," says Deirdre Clemente, professor of…
