Georgia May. In case anyone missed her on the Rag & Bone runway,or was too engrossed with the clothes, the name of Mick Jagger’sdaughter was embroidered on the back of the crepe bowling shirt shewore. Joan Smalls and a couple other models got the same personalizedtreatment, a touch of Fifties kitsch in a collection that otherwisefirmly adhered to the line’s ethos of cool.
The retro thing wasreal but thankfully not literal. “Frank Sinatra meets Fifties bowlingand English Teddy Boys,” said Marcus Wainwright, noting some of thetight, lace-up high-waisted pants and cropped jackets. As the seasondictates, outerwear was important, and the lineup had ample to offer inthe category, whether the giant gray leather and shearling coat, thefluffy buffalo-checked parka or the crazy, hairy knit jacket that wasreprised as festive hobo bag.
There were also moments of Englishmilitary, Coogi sweaters — remember them? — grunge and an all-Americanspirit in the forest-green plaids, shearlings and cowhide motifs, whichWainwright and his partner David Neville savvily finessed into asingular point of view. Wainwright filed the look under “cool clothesfor cool girls.” We agree.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia
