LOS ANGELES — Lest you think Basic Terrain, a new women’s wear line from actress Joy Bryant and her husband, stuntman David Pope, is a vanity project, consider this: The couple are funding the line themselves, and until recently, their dining room doubled as their office and design studio. The pre-fall capsule collection consists of low-slung, wrap-front cotton pants in two lengths and six washes.
Bryant, a former model, is no stranger to fashion, but her utilitarian husband is the one with the sewing skills. “My mom taught me how to sew when I was around 10, and I took home economics in eighth grade,” said Pope, 42. “By the time I finished middle school, I had made several pairs of shorts.”
WWD asked a handful of creative directors to evaluate the September covers of leading women's fashion magazines. How do they think the covers this year compare with years gone by, and what do they say about the current status of the publication? Link in bio. (GIF by @hypebreast)
"Stephen King is such a master, but I don't like being scared - there's enough that's really scary. How about the morning's news?" says Holland Taylor in an interview with WWD.
