How Virgil Abloh shaped the course of visual culture

How Virgil Abloh shaped the course of visual culture

By the age of just 41 years old, Virgil Abloh had irrevocably shifted the course of visual culture, bringing the tropes and ideas that define contemporary design as we now know it to life.

Lady Gagas inauguration dress designer rewrites the rules of haute couture

“It all happened at the very last minute,” says Schiaparelli’s Texan creative director Daniel Roseberry over a Zoom from the house’s headquarters at 21 Place Vendome. “We had no time, so we dyed the fabric here in Paris, found the navy cashmere locally and we had no time for a fitting. It was, as always, an example of the gifts of the atelier. We would be on our knees without them.” He’s talking, of course, about the gown he made for Lady Gaga to perform the national anthem in, at the Biden-Harris inauguration last week. Such is the power of...

Executive Produced By Meryl Streep, Sarah Jones Film Sell/Buy/Date Seeks Answers About The Sex Industry

Executive Produced By Meryl Streep, Sarah Jones Film Sell/Buy/Date Seeks Answers About The Sex Industry

More From ForbesFor as long as she can remember Sarah Jones has been captivated by the disparate messages she was fed about the sex industry and female sexuality. “From Pretty Woman to Mighty Aphrodite to Taxi Driver, depending on who was framing the narrative, the idea of men paying for sex was simultaneously taboo, shameful, stigmatized, but also romanticized and sensationalized,” observes Jones. A Tony-winning performer, writer and comedian, Jones is known for playing a mosaic of richly developed characters of all ages and backgrounds in her one-person shows, like Bridge and Tunnel. Sarah Jones' new film Sell/Buy/Date debuts in...

The Urwerk UR-120 Has A Message For You: Live Long And Prosper

The Urwerk UR-120Urwerk What’s better than the UR-110, the award-winning Urwerk that clinched a forever-loyal fan base for the brand when it launched in 2011?

As Urwerk explains it: “Hand up, palm forward, fingers parted in the middle, and then...
