show of forces

ON OCTOBER 10 AND 11 at Spring Studios in Manhattan, we will be holding our third Forces of Fashion summit, Forces for the Future. It will be a moment for us, as it has been in previous years, to have a series of animated, intimate, and (I hope) highly opinionated discussions with some of our favorite designers and figures of substance and style. As I write this letter, we already have a wonderful lineup confirmed: Tom Ford; Tory Burch; Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing, soon to appear in a forthcoming and (so I gather) emotional documentary about his life and work; Kim Jones of Dior Men; Wes Gordon of Carolina Herrera; Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez; and Virgil Abloh, surely one of the busiest people in fashion, what with his…

only disconnet

Toward the back of my top dresser drawer—the one for pajamas—I have an iPhone 4 in a lime-green case. I bought this now-obsolete phone, refurbished, years ago, as a gift for my son on his 11th birthday. But it was never charged, never turned on, never brought blazing to life as I hoped it would be: with group texts, Instagram, Super Stickman Golf. So the phone sits among my nightgowns, essentially deceased. I only recently acknowledged that it will never be what a phone should be—someone’s steadfast companion, a guilty pleasure, a fetish object alive with the hallucinatory wonders of the entire angelic and demonic internet. What happened is my son rejected my gift. He simply said no to the present I’d bought and wrapped for him. He didn’t want a phone.…

FASHION Given its meteoric rise over the last few years, you’d be forgiven for thinking Ganni was a brand-new label. Not quite: It’s been around since 2000, when gallerist Frans Truelsen set out to create the perfect cashmere sweater. Nine years later, he brought in Nicolaj and Ditte Reffstrup to scale his little knitwear company, and the husband-and-wife duo have spent the past decade building Ganni into an international business, dressing a few influential women (Gigi Hadid, Beyoncé, Kendall Jenner, and Rihanna among them) along the way—all from the hygge-filled enclave of Copenhagen. The Danish capital is, of course, central to Ganni’s charm: If you had to choose one look to define the #GanniGirl (it’s a thing), it would be a printed dress and “sneaks,” as Ditte calls them, all the better…

the must-have: cult creams

FALL SKIN-CARE GUIDE WHEN SHE’S NOT BUSY LIFTING and toning the jawlines of Amber Valletta and Naomi Campbell, Danuta Mieloch, the facialist and founder of Rescue Spa in New York and Philadelphia, can be found in the workspace of her Bucks County, Pennsylvania, farmhouse. After more than 15 years as an in-demand aesthetician, Mieloch is endlessly tinkering with her first product: a stand-alone, milky-smooth cream of her own design. “I’m obsessed with finding that potion that does it all,” she says. She’s not the only one. Following inevitable fatigue from multistep skin-care routines popularized by Korean beauty imports, and viral tutorials on YouTube and Instagram, there is a new demand for streamlined, do-it-all moisturizers. At her spa’s boutique, Mieloch is consistently reupping her supply of Biologique Recherche Creme MSRH to balance dry,…

the professional: rosemarie ingleton, m.d.

FALL SKIN-CARE GUIDE As one of the country’s most prominent dermatologists of color, Rosemarie Ingleton, M.D.—an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York—knows a thing or two about pigmentation. “Discoloration is the number-one complaint I get from my patients who are people of color,” says the Jamaican-born Ingleton, whose clients have included Chrissy Teigen and Iman, as well as Ashley Graham and Adriana Lima. Now she’s combining 23 years of experience and her Caribbean heritage into a just-launched skin-care range that features a signature moisturizer plus four boosters to combat discoloration, fine lines, breakouts, and irritation. But Rose Ingleton MD Skincare, as the streamlined system designed for all skin tones is called, isn’t your average dermatologist brand. “I wasn’t seeking to do prescription-grade products,” says Ingleton,…

the it ingredient: bakuchiol

Dermatologists have come to a consensus on at least one viable solution for delaying the aging process: “Retinol is the holy grail,” Mona Gohara, M.D., an associate clinical professor of dermatology at Yale University, says of the vitamin A derivative known for increasing collagen production and reducing collagen breakdown. But its less desirable outcomes—peeling, dryness, redness, and the fact that it’s classified by the FDA as a category C drug, which carries potential risks for expectant mothers—can often outweigh its benefits. Enter bakuchiol, a plant-based retinol alternative gaining traction in skin-care circles. “It has vitamin A’s benefits without the side effects,” says Gohara of the botanical distilled from the seeds and leaves of the Indian babchi plant, which has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine to treat skin conditions. Clinically…
