Name in the news: Shein

Here’s a statistic that surprised even me, a follower of fashion and retail trends: The most downloaded shopping app in the U.S. in May 2021 was not Amazon. It was Shein, an online-only retailer of cheap fast fashion for women and men (plus beauty products, plus home products) founded in 2008 in Nanjing, China, by Chris Xu, a search-engine-optimization specialist with no previous experience in fashion or retail. Today, Shein (often styled as SHEIN) is a “quindecacorn”*—its gross merchandise ...

Chanel Marine, Or Antique, Noir Intense Stylo Yeux Eyeliners Reviews & Swatches

Sol Body Shimmering Body Powder Review & Swatches

Catwalk Sol Body Catwalk Shimmering Body Powder ($10.00 for 0.18 oz.) has a medium pink base that wasn’t quite as warm-toned compared to the lighter, golden shimmer and larger sparkle running throughout. The texture was denser and stiffer to work with, and it wasn’t a surprise to me to find that the brand recommend application with fingertips as a result–one really needed that pressure to dig into the product. It had semi-sheer, build...

Anastasia Hot Sand Stick Highlighter Review & Swatches

How James Bond’s Look Evolved for ‘No Time to Die’

The 16th-century Dutch theologian Desiderius Erasmus famously proclaimed “Clothes make the man.” This is categorically true of James Bond, Ian Fleming’s swashbuckling secret agent, whose costumes through the years — from the Savile Row suits worn by Sean Connery in “Dr. No” and “Diamonds Are Forever” to Pierce Brosnan’s dapper duds courtesy of Italian couture […]

Podcast #746: The Confucian Gentleman

When you think about the word “gentleman,” you probably think about the kind of well-mannered, well-educated, civil, virtuous, self-controlled fellows who lived in England and America during the 19th century. But there was also a not-entirely-dissimilar conception of the gentleman that grew out of the East, though it arose quite a bit longer ago. This gentleman was described by the Chinese philosopher Confucius in a text called the Analects, which my guest says might be thought of as a 2,500-...

England played a bunch of cricket matches in the summer of 2021.

So much happens in international cricket these days that much of it becomes transient and ephemeral.

Out of style: Will Gen Z ever give up its dangerous love of fast fashion?

As a generation, they care deeply about the environment and sustainability - but are also under pressure to change their wardrobe constantly. Which impulse will win?Alessia Teresko, a 21-year-old student from Nottingham, seldom wears the same outfit online twice. Which is why, last month, for a friend’s birthday, she bought a minidress: a 70s-style Zara dress in a swirling print, for which she paid £27.99. On Instagram, she posted a photograph of herself in her new dress, with a caption that rea...
