New Yorkeur

Fashion, culture, and stories from the city.

Mood board, early 2014
Post-holidays winter months can be challenging. One experiences the emotional slump after a full month of social engagements, gift-giving, rich foods, and (probably) stress. And the payoff can be hard to find! The days are still short, dark, and cold. No wonder wellness resolutions fall apart pretty quick, eh?
Still, I find something cleansing about the frigidity of a New Year, in this part of the world where January is typically snowy and dark. The pastels on the runway this past season—along with the prevailing love of the 1990s going on lately—have brought me back around to pinks. How perfect, then, that Pantone would pick Radiant Orchid as its color of 2014.
Last year for me was a lot about reds and Flemish details, but I feel something decidedly softer may be in the forecast this year. I took advantage of the after-holiday sales to pick up some beautiful calf-hair and leather gloves from Banana Republic (they’re on sale and still available!) in a fuschia pink, and one of J. Crew’s wonderfully-fitting boyfriend sweaters in a neon coral. 2013 was a big year for me in experimenting with fashion, so 2014 is about continuing to find new ways to be expressive, with a more editorial eye. Right now: a color pallette of black with minty greens and pinks. Black over-the-knee boots with green silk blouses peaking out from a black cocoon coat, and these sweet pink gloves for a pop of color, like dormant bare trees reminding you that they will bud and flower in a few months. Until then, brew some tea and rest up.

"When I started going to shows in the early nineties, when I was at British Vogue, nobody could see the clothes except the buyers and the press, and then the customer saw it when it came out in the magazine and the stores. Now, you have a show, it’s on Style.com, and as a consumer, I can look at those pictures for six months before the product gets into the store. When it finally does get there, I feel like it’s been overexposed. There’s sort of a fatigue to it. By the time it’s in the stores, she’s already seen the next collection, so she wants that. I want to create that excitement for the customer again, and also put clothes in the right season: what you want to wear when you want to wear it."
Tamara Mellon talks her new namesake collection and shaking up the fashion industry with STYLE.com

I share concern for the emasculation of black men in our country today. But I don’t see it happening in instances of creative men stepping outside of the box and expressing themselves through fashion—to me, those are defiant acts of freedom. Instead, I see emasculation through the outlandish prison rates of black men in America or oppressive policies like stop-and-frisk that target young black men and turn them into statistics.

Cheap garment-factory labor doesn’t always equal cheap clothes.

The availability of low-cost workers has sent mass-market clothing labels of all stripes—H&M, Gap, Wal-Mart, Zara and others—into Bangladesh’s $20 billion garment industry.

But designer brands including Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren and Hugo Boss also have outsourced manufacturing to Bangladesh, where worker safety has become a huge issue following several fatal accidents. Indeed, high-end labels often use the same factories as their discount peers.

What Do Armani, Ralph Lauren and Hugo Boss Have in Common? Bangladesh,” by Christina Passariello, Tripti Lahiri, and Sean McLain, Wall Street Journal
