How to Use Fashion and Jewelry As Home Decor

Schiaparelli’s gilded aviator eyeglasses have been living in my head rent-free since I first saw them on Instagram late last year. I’m fascinated by their surrealist design, intrigued by their Dadaesque appeal.

The Politics of Fashion: A New World Order

The easy etiquette dodge about “not talking politics” is out — consumers are pushing companies to take a stand.
