SOLANGE ON HER ALBUM, ‘SEAT AT THE TABLE’

In her interview, Solange talks about her critically acclaimed album ‘Seat at the Table’. “I did want to create this juxtaposition, politically, of having these very hard, messy conversations but having them stylistically in a way that you can really hear me, and not the yelling, the rage,” she ruminates. “I wanted to project in my delivery what I was not achieving at all: peace and having a certain lightness and airiness that could maybe help me get closer to having more light and airiness in my life.”

TOMMY HILFIGER OUTDID HIMSELF WITH TOMMYLAND IN LOS ANGELES

Fashion

Ain't no party like a Tommy party.

Short of space and/or time travel, I'm not sure anyone will ever stage a runway show on a larger scale than Tommy Hilfiger's second consecutive consumer-facing, "see now, buy now" Tommy x Gigi spectacle — this time held in Venice Beach, Calif., on Wednesday. (Even if someone did, there's no way it wouldn't be a waste of money.) The thing about this show is that it wasn't just a show — it was essentially a geographical location, called Tommyland, that I half expected to come up as an Uber destination when I made my way there. 

Tommyland is a place where boredom is impossible, because there are eight million things going on at once. The goal seemed to be to erect a miniature Coachella: Our tickets were made to look like backstage or VIP concert passes; we got wristbands when we walked in; the clothes on the runway were very "festival"; there were merch booths, food stands, rides, screen-printing stations, VIP sections, live music (by Fergie, now a fashion show go-to), (decriminalized) marijuana and an overwhelming quantity of young humans. According to the brand, 3,000 people were present — 2,000 of them consumers and 1,000 press, influencers and buyers, approximately. And all told, the most impressive aspect of the event, to me, was that despite the clear potential for an unmitigated clusterfuck, things ran pretty smoothly. KCD deserves some kind of medal for producing a successful event 3,000 miles away from home, for as many human beings, with so many moving parts, collaborations, VIP guests and activations that a pre-event press release literally gave me a headache. The show only started about 35 minutes late — which is typical of the most simple NYFW runway. (Kanye West, take note?)

The front row met all expectations: All of the Hadids who weren't on the runway were present — Anwar (next to rumored girlfriend Nicola Peltz), Yolanda, Mohammed, those other Hadid girls — as well as Kaia and Presley Gerber, Cameron Dallas, Machine Gun Kelly, Sofia Richie, Kris Jenner, Lisa Rinna and her daughters (important if you watch "RHOBH") and, somewhat inexplicably, Lady Gaga.

Like last season, the clothes were the least important thing; seemingly aware of that, Tommy Hilfiger actually released the whole Tommy x Gigi lookbook over two weeks ago. Still, it was fun to watch an assemblage of top models jaunt down the outdoor runway to throwback tunes like Tupac's "California Love." And then to watch said models and celebrities dance and eat Korean tacos on the Tommyland grounds afterward, to be quietly shuttled into the VIP area once the Hadid family and Kristen Stewart had safely made their way in.

Tommyland really did have everything... well, except maybe one thing: originality. The brand definitely borrowed some ideas — "see now, buy now," the destination runway show, the low-brow music festival theme, the branded airplane shuttling models across the country in branded merch — and tried to do them bigger and better. I couldn't stop thinking about how much money this must have cost and whether it was worth it. Most guests cleared out after Fergie's performance (probably to beat traffic) and when I checked out the Tommy x Gigi booth then, most items appeared to be fully stocked in all sizes. A sales associate said only that people were shopping and the accessories were selling particularly well. Online, a few items have sold out but most appear to be available in at least a few sizes. To facilitate the instant shopping, Tommy actually partnered with visual search technology developer, Slyce, to allow people (who downloaded the app) to shop from photos of 3D moving images on the runway. There was also a shoppable livestream.

While the brand may have used others' ideas (and lots of money) to get consumer attention, there was one movement it may have helped pioneer — this season's exodus to Los Angeles. There's no question that at least some of the other designers who staged events here instead of New York this week — including front-row guest Rachel Zoe — felt more confident in doing so because they knew this Tommy Hilfiger blowout would bring at least a few editors and buyers to the West Coast pre-NYFW.

HOW VICTORIA BECKHAM ELUDED THE TYPICAL CELEBRITY CLOTHING LINE TROPE

Fashion

Victoria Beckham chats with Saks Fifth Avenue Fashion Director Roopal Patel at the Saks flagship location.

The consistent stream of celebrities launching eponymous fashion brands (and fragrances and athleisure lines), exists as a sort of omnipresent bane of existence for many people in the fashion industry. And while many of those lines turn out to be vanity projects that never succeed in reaching the floors of luxury department stores, Victoria Beckham is a sharp deviation from that trope. The designer's label evolved from sunglasses and denim to offer accessories and a full range of ready-to-wear; she'll soon release a collaboration with Target and was awarded Brand of the Year by the British Fashion Council in 2014— and she's just getting started. 

"I quite like being told something's not been done before or that it's not possible," said Beckham to Saks Fifth Avenue's Fashion Director Roopal Patelat a recent talk hosted by the New York-based retailer. "[When I started my company], I didn't know very much about the industry and I was very aware that people were going to have preconceptions, and that was okay. I just stayed focused and very honest; it was [always] about me creating clothes that I wanted to wear, and that I felt had a point of difference to anything else that was out there." 

And that's exactly what she did. Nearly a decade later, Victoria Beckham is still excited about her position in the fashion industry, and it shows as she speaks animatedly to Patel on the second floor of Saks's flagship location. "Fashion has always been my passion — this has always been what I wanted to do," said Beckham. "I want to make women feel like the best version of themselves. I always say that [my career] started with girl power, and it's no different now."

And for all the fashion skeptics and/or purists out there who doubt Beckham's commitment to her brand, think again. This is a mother with four children whose method of quality control involves her wearing the clothes herself: "It's very important that I wear the clothes. I want to see if I'm going to put this white shirt on, how is it going to look by the time I get off the airplane? I'm taking all that into consideration because I am my customer. If that is what I need in a collection, then that's what my customer needs." Yet, even with a busy schedule and her next show at New York Fashion Week swiftly approaching, she and her husband, David, still prioritize their roles as parents and make sure to coordinate travel accordingly to ensure that they're still "very present" in their childrens' lives. "I may make it look easy, but the reason I wear sunglasses all the time is — because let me tell you — I'm up every night with the children!"

As for what's next for Beckham? Well, everything, but in due time; "I’d want do everything right away, but that’s not sensible," she said with a laugh to the audience. "I recently got into beauty, and I loved working very closely with Estée Lauder, so I'm very, very passionate about that. I'd love to do childrenswear at some point, [and] I'd love to do menswear!" It's a natural next step, given that she has some very stylish inspiration for both categories within her immediate family. "For me, it's about being honest and I think that's why my collections have done well. It's very believable. It's me — I wear the clothes. I wear the makeup. Women can tell when something is not honest, and this is very much so."
