Paris Haute Couture Week: Video won’t kill the catwalk say critics of first digital fashion week

Video may have killed the radio star, but on the reaction to the first ever digital Paris fashion week, the queens of the catwalk can breathe easy.Forced online for the first time in its history by the coronavirus pandemic, brands both in haute couture and the Paris men’s fashion week presented videos of their collections instead.While some had seen this as the advent of a long overdue opening up the cliquish salons of the fashion elite to the masses, the digital revolution has somewhat fallen flat. “The runway can’t reopen for business soon enough,” quipped Bridget Foley of the industry bible Women’s Wear Daily, who like many felt the online shows -- which end Monday -- lack the buzz and razzamatazz of the real thing.“Oh Lord, how pretentious are some of these film shorts...

The open letter, published in Tuesday’s ‘Harper’s Magazine’‘, acknowledges the Black Lives Matter movement and other powerful protests for racial and social justice, which are leading to overdue demands for police reform, along with wider calls for greater equality and inclusion across our society.“But this needed reck...

Review: Sin of Semantics by Saima Afreen

Poems that don’t yield themselves after a few readings most likely don’t warrant further study. Such poems are usually obscure, private figments of a poet’s imagination, perhaps comprehensible only to the poet — and his or her little clique. There is now an unspoken trend that suggests that the more difficult a poem is the wiser and ‘deeper’ it is. This is, to put it mildly, debatable. Poets are not the sentinels of arcane secrets, revealing tantalizing clues after every word, line break, comma or semicolon. While it may be a secretive art needing nothing more than paper and pencil, it must have some semblance of public appeal, no matter how sparse the audience. It is not the art of wilful mystification and neither is it a pop song revelling in repeated encores. It is a pr...

Black Lives Matter: Kylie Jenner’s Instagram post propels Jedidiah Duyile’s Black-owned fashion label, LoudBrand Studios

If Kylie Jenner can eradicate more than $1 billion from Snap Inc.’s market value in one tweet about her lack of interest in the platform, then surely the mega-celebrity’s promotion of a Black-owned fashion label over multiple social media posts can have the opposite effect.Such was the experience of Jedidiah Duyile, a London-born designer of Nigerian and Ghanaian descent, who saw her collection at LoudBrand Studios sell out after two posts from Jenner racked up more than 13 million “likes” on Instagram.“It’s great when you already believe in what you do, but it’s really nice for the world to see it,” Duyile said in a Zoom interview with Bloomberg News.Kylie took to her Instagram on Monday and posted photos of herself from her Utah trip, with her friends and daughter Stormi...

Review: Breasts and Eggs, a Novel by Mieko Kawakami

Translated from the Japanese by Sam Bett and David Boyd; 432pp; Europa EditionsBorn in Osaka prefecture in 1976, Mieko Kawakami lives in Japan and started out as a singer and songwriter. Her first novella My Ego, My Teeth, and the World came out in 2007 and won the Shoyo Prize for Young Emerging Writers.

She has authored two other novels, Heaven and The Night Belongs to Lovers, both slated to be published in English translation.
