It’s easy to feel a sense of nausea at such prices and at the idea that children, especially little girls, are being groomed to be future shoppers, though a Gucci bib is scarcely a prequel to a Gucci bag. But it’s also not a new concern, as writers and academics like Daniel T. Cook, an associate professor of childhood studies at Rutgers University, Camden, have observed.
Indeed, though The Modist, the name of Ms. Guenez’s website, is a clear nod to “modest,” it also denotes a “modiste,” a fashionable milliner or dressmaker. The conflation of references is less about wordplay than a reflection of our current reality, and the fact that these choices are not limited to a particular religious or ethnic group. After all, designers sold on the site include Maria Cornejo, Alberta Ferretti and Christopher Kane. Ms. Guenez herself, who was brought up in Algeria and educated at the London School of Economics, and who worked in private equity for 13 years before starting The Modist, did not begin dressing in a covered-up fashion until three years ago.
Despite the impressive-sounding numbers that designers say they get from children’s lines — Michelle Smith of Milly said she booked $1 million in orders her first season — the reality is that designer wear is still a garnish for the $32 billion children’s apparel industry.
The secret to Ryan Gosling’s style is also the secret to his success – he never seems to try too hard. After all, being stylish is like being funny: it doesn’t work if you force it. From his indie breakthrough Half Nelson to breakout hit Drive, to this month’s Oscar-favourite La La Land, Gosling has carved out a career by following the maxim that no acting is too dramatic that it can’t be done with the corner of one’s mouth, and the possible furrowing of one’s brow. His style follows suit: it’s caring without caring too much. There’s the evening outfits accompanied by velvet slippers (managing to be both formal and flippant); the knowledge that suits come in more than three colours (he’s rocked everything from an olive to a burgundy, while also aware that if your suit shouts your shirt should whisper); the ability to roll up a sleeve way past all the way past one’s elbow (managing to be both smart and rakish); the understanding that a haircut can be a thing that a man decides on, rather than a project that always requires an update (a left-to-right swish has never really been fashionable, and has therefore never been out of fashion either). Or, finally, that scorpion-emblazoned bomber jacket – the one Gosling himself would never actually wear, because that would be trying too hard. Stuart McGurk, Senior Commissioning Editor at GQ
If you donate your clothing anywhere in the New York City area and the items aren’t sold at a secondhand store, they’re likely to end up at Trans-Americas Trading Co. Workers at this large warehouse in Clifton, New Jersey, receive and process about 80,000 pounds of clothing a day.
Nothing too drastic, you wallflowers will be pleased to hear, but according to last September’s preemptive runways, we’ll all be embarking on a season of fanciful frills, delicate pastel hues and lots and lots of plastic.
I’ll never forget the day I tried to put a plaid shirt with plaid shorts on my son. I thought it was fine, but it seems I was very, very, wrong. Every woman I’ve ever known thought I had recently suffered a head injury, and even a couple of my guy friends thought I was somewhat visually impaired. Clearly my son’s chances at the Supreme Court were diminishing.
Mr. Weinstein was also a regular at the Met Gala, which has been co-chaired by Ms. Wintour since 1999, and at the Council of Fashion Designers of America awards. (In 2016, there were plans for the Weinstein Company to produce a television special on the CFDA awards, but it fell through, Mr. Kolb said, when they realized that the event was not paced for television.) Mr. Weinstein appeared in front rows, including those of Marchesa, Dior, Louis Vuitton and Burberry.
He introduced “Project Runway.” Along with the shoe designer Tamara Mellon he was instrumental in the revival of Halston, for which he corralled Sarah Jessica Parker, the celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe (who often dressed her clients in Marchesa) and the private equity firm Hilco as partners. He licensed the option to revive the Charles James brand the same year the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art featured a Charles James exhibition.

When A$AP Rocky broke through, he made a pitch to the fashion world: will you have me? His lyrics insisted that he was in possession not only of the right swag (“Raf Simons, Rick Owens usually what I’m dressed in”), but also a connoisseur’s eye (“I see your Jil Sanders, Oliver Peoples / Costume National, your Ann Demeulemeester”). Overtures are one thing; having them reciprocated is another – yet designers have since clutched Rocky to their bosom. These days, the Harlem rapper is as at home on the front row as he is behind a mixing desk, with a JW Anderson collaboration and Guess capsule range to his name. More significantly, in 2016, he was anointed a face of Dior Homme, the first black person to front the label. So how did he penetrate fashion’s inner sanctum? Simple: his personal style was as bold as his songs proclaimed. Whether it was his early street goth phase – essentially, head-to-toe Black Scale – his esoteric-haute-couture period or current somewhere-in-the-middle sweet spot, he has always committed wholeheartedly to streetwear trends while taking some notable risks in the process (looking at you, dress-length shirt). “I swear we gon’ have drama if you touch my tailored garments,” he raps on Live.Love.A$AP. No doubt. Charlie Burton, Senior Commissioning Editor at GQ
