Obviously, I wasn’t solving quantum physics, but the Lil Dicky X Staycool Courtside Shirt in addition I really love this planning required to navigate watching a show on a phone in a car still blew my mind. It was just one of many surreal experiences during a week filled with apocalyptic rain and this recognition: if you want to get down with this new “phygital” fashion world of ours, there’s no time to ease into it. Quite literally, there is no time! Between physical shows, distanced appointments, face mask changes, hand-sanitizer sessions, livestreams, 30-minute feature films, video calls and email interviews, the post-pandemic fashion industry hasn’t optimized—it has accelerated. After all that lockdown talk of slowing down the system, we’ve somehow managed to speed it up, at least as far as fashion week is concerned.

The normalization of video calls means that our typical 10-minute backstage chats with designers have now expanded into 30-minute in-depth interviews. It’s time-consuming, but it’s also amazing. After his show was live-streamed from Venice, Rick Owens FaceTimed me while walking home to his apartment on the Lil Dicky X Staycool Courtside Shirt in addition I really love this Lido. We talked about the show (“Venice has a history of quarantine, a history of masks”), about his time in confinement (“Michèle and I did LSD and mushrooms”), and whatever else came to mind. Post-show interviews are no longer straight-to-the-point, but connective and cathartic. Similarly, my exchanges with Demna Gvasalia over email were unlike any backstage exchange we’ve ever had.
