Busted! What The Great and Bridgerton reveal about cleavage | Fashion

Posted on

Can cleavage ever be a plot device? The 18th-century Russian court, as visualised in The Great, a bonkers new satire from Hulu and Channel 4, is a hotbed of moral iniquity, vodka and bears. But, like most costume dramas, it is also about breasts.

Take Lady Svenska, a courtier hellbent on ousting Catherine the Great. We know from her decolletage that she’s a baddie long before she calls Catherine “a bitch” for refusing a biscuit. Then there’s Georgina Dymov, the mistress of Catherine’s husband, Peter III, whose libidinal interests are crystallised by the gold-plated pendant pointing directly towards her

Posted on

The photo, leaked over the weekend, has been a topic of heated discussion for days. Shot by Tyler Mitchell, the first and still only black photographer to shoot a Vogue cover since his beautiful 2018 portrait of Beyoncé, the incoming vice president is pictured in her famous converse Chuck Taylor sneakers.

Brands Want In on the Archival Fashion Boom

Posted on

The turmoil of the last twelve months seems to have eliminated trends from fashion, with moods and desires almost impossible to track on a global scale. But one phenomenon still seems poised to dominate 2021: vintage clothing, or “archival fashion,” as the cognoscenti call it. (Funny, that, because “vintage” was developed as the snob’s alternative to “used” and “thrifted.”) Archival, a notch above vintage, is distinguished by the piece’s place in fashion history–it appeared on the runway, started a trend, or has been highly influential. And most importantly, it was created by a historically significant designer.

Posted on

The frothy Regency era rom-com series (produced by Shonda Rhimes) drops us into London high society during a “season,” a yearly tradition in which debutantes are presented at court to signal their readiness for marriage.

Naturally, they’re dressed to the nines. The series’ costume designer, Ellen Mirojnick, brings the fashion of 19th century England back to life with vibrant colors; airy, era-specific silhouettes; tons of embroidery and lots of outlandish prints.

“It’s like a big ice cream sundae with all the toppings,” Mirojnick told WWD in a preview of the costumes in mid-December.

It is not easy to stand against a mega-giant like Amazon. But preparing a well-thought-out strategy and working on it day and night can mean promising results.
