welcome to the issue

If you’re dreaming of a mid-winter escape, you’ve come to the right place. In this issue, we travel the world at lightning speed in “Global Style” (page 126), and dance among the clouds in “Peak of Chic,” our ski-jump-assisted salute to the latest in luxury skiwear (page 142). Back on terra firma, we mull the difficulty of choosing between statement stilettos and souped-up sneakers (page 136), among other timely conundrums, and offer our thoughts on the new season in Runway Report (page 152). Enjoy the issue. Dries Van Noten earrings, $990. Forty Five Ten, Dallas; 214-559-2280.…

editor’s letter

ON NOVEMBER 18, the legendary designer Azzedine Alaïa passed away at the age of 82. Like so many others in the fashion world, I will never forget his exquisitely crafted clothes—or the wonderful spirit behind them. Being invited to his atelier for lunch or dinner was always a highlight of the collections. Even though I don’t speak French and he didn’t speak English, we somehow found a way to communicate. Fashion, after all, is an international language. A true sculptor of the female form, Alaïa knew exactly how to accentuate the good and de-emphasize the bad. His virtuosic dresses—worn by everyone from Michelle Obama to Lady Gaga— influenced countless designers, including Nicolas Ghesquière. “Discovering the genius of Alaïa when I was young made me want to become a part of the…

my best friend’s wedding

IT’S IMPOSSIBLE to sum up my friend Ally Hilfiger and what the island of Mustique means to us. Ally’s family and mine have houses next door to one another there, and growing up we became like sisters. There’s nothing quite like the friends you make and the adventures you share on the island. Ally holds Mustique—which is just over two square miles, and as intimate as it is beautiful— in the same place in her heart as I do, so it was no surprise that she wanted to have her wedding there. Ally and I were both living in New York seven years ago when she introduced me to her new boyfriend, Steve Hash. At the time Ally was working hard on her fashion line, NAHM. She was fiercely independent and…

knit wit

I’ve always loved Madame Rykiel’s Dictionnaire Déglingué, her dictionary that’s filled with wonderful definitions like “Romantic: A woman in a man’s suit, with a flower in her hair.” It demonstrates an intense joy in its wordplay and in its wit and lightheartedness. So it was only natural to launch a year of celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the house with a Manifesto capsule collection themed around a Sonia Rykiel vocabulary. The first word I chose was “s’aimer,” to love oneself. At the risk of sounding clichéd, it seemed pertinent in a world where there is so much insecurity and unhappiness. I wrote s’aimer boldly across the front of a boyfriend sweater, giving a nod to our monogram with the “S” and “R” falling on the sleeves. The Sauternes dress is shaped like a…
