Labor Day is right around the corner (as is my birthday, which I’m not sure I’ve mentioned). We may be living and working in London, but we’ve been slow both to adopt bank holidays and to drop American holidays like Labor Day. So while the rest of London is at work on Monday, we’re going to do as W Magazine suggests and settle in with a few of these fashion films.
Making W’s list are Saint Laurent, Iris, Unzipped (Where has Isaac been lately?), and Devil Wears Prada. However, with Bill’s recent passing, rewatching Bill Cunningham New York seems fitting. And it’s been too long since I’ve seen Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s. Attention span permitting, we might be able to squeeze in Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel.
Travel. Now, there’s a good idea. We don’t have to watch these at home…
