100: Bottega at SSENSE, JPG on Ending Soon, and Yuhan Wang from Maimoun
A pair of Colorful Standard Organic Cotton Socks sets today's mood.
Named for the large, vertical newspaper format, think of this weekly supplement as a shopping cheat sheet cribbed from far-reaching corners of the internet.
Happy 100th issue to all who celebrate 🤸🏼 An item to set today’s mood: Colorful Standard Organic Cotton Socks.
Funny to me, but these Colorful Standard socks might be the most DM-ed-about item I’ve posted. So here you have it: the result of a many weeks’ long journey to finding a source for pairs I love and, at $11, can afford to buy in bulk. They scratch the Comme Si itch (bouncy, perky, soft) with Uniqlo fingernails (again…$11). This cornflower-y set gets a lot of wear with my MNZ Olympias but as you can see here, they sing with an ever more princessly pair of kitten heels (and also speak fluent loafer). The rainbow of advanced, theory-obsessed shades can convey more moods than our current emoji lexicon.
After lamenting its absence just days ago, the Bottega leather “flannel” is now here and, as confirmed by Marcus Allen who wore it to his Society Archive book launch this week, it is as phenomenal to behold as it is difficult to perceive—the least you could ask of a $6,800 shirt; a The Row slip dress that’s presumably meant as an underpinning but seems to me like a complete summer outfit is on sale for $356; I’m not certain I’ll bring my holding pattern of sheer-everything-all-the-time full-force into 2023, but this practically nonexistent MNZ slip skirt would look so mysterious and flirty layered under a dress ever slightly more cropped; I previously shared these Agmes glass earrings, prompting someone to share with me their blue glass jewelry obsession (what a great, granular object to fixate on), and anyway they’re on sale for $115 now; and a pair of Gabriela Coll brutalist babouches that look like they were hand-hewn in an iron mill housed deep inside of Berghain.
Since seeing Pina Bausch’s Agua at BAM on closing night, I’m completely overtaken with flippy, swingy summer dresses (they’re all I’ve worn for days)—this old Victoria’s Secret slip dress is as if pulled right off the stage; not to fear monger, but we are MINUTES away from gaudy-bikini season, and if you wait much longer to act, all of your options are going to be $1,000+, unlike this Galliano-era Dior triangle-top-skirt set for $260 (you can complete the set with a pair of matching bottoms for $56); a Khaite trench jacket that was the crown jewel of my Rent the Runway era going for $375; Ending Soon’s very major vintage clearance is virtually all in-store this weekend, but a couple of pieces like these JPG Junior wool shorts for $100 are on the site; and a visit to the Mugler exhibition at Brooklyn Museum has me turning over Thierry’s softer side in my mind—his 100 lb costumes stand opposite pastoral fantasies like this layered linen jacket in his signature hourglass silhouette.
and everywhere else.
The latest Luar bag release is IMO the most convincing: a spacious leather hobo for only $340; J.Crew’s having a sale that brings these loafers down to $150 in cart; I love these three girls here…like your friend’s cool older sister who wears eyeshadow and tells you not to open her door…the first one is a new Paloma Wool off-shoulder top, an update to the winter-dominating olive version; I’ve been thinking about this Yuhan Wang spliced lace top since Mina Alyeshmerni shared it in Monday’s Nowruz edit, so naturally I had to buy it from her store, Maimoun; and Proenza Schouler’s Archive Sale includes possibly the best dress the brand has made—this inverted-umbrella-looking number in an excellent two-tone.
