Pat McGrath x Apple for BHM
Hello, Mother! Dame Pat McGrath is an icon on and off the runway—so it’s no surprise that the legendary makeup artist is making her mark in other fields too. This month it’s music, courtesy of a new editorial project by Apple Music to celebrate Black History Month. McGrath’s ‘Matriarchs’ playlist features tunes from Mariah Carey, Lil’ Kim, Tina Turner, and more, celebrating the range of musical styles Black women have covered over time. “Matriarch” is the first theme of the Apple Music initiative, which will continue to explore different themes with playlists, essays, and videos curated by stars like Tracee Ellis Ross and Jaden Smith.
Celine’s Menswear Rules with An Iron Fist
Calling all royals! Hedi Slimane’s Fall 2021 menswear line for Celine Homme was revealed today, and it was every bit as romantic and dramatic as you’d expect. Taking inspiration from Gen Z fashion, “Teen Knight Poem” was set in a literal castle (Château de Chambord, to be exact) surrounded by sprawling French gardens. Set to an original soundtrack by The Loom and surrounded by a breathtaking array of spires, steep rooftops, and balconies, Slimane sent his prince-like models down the “runway” in ensembles that mixed his tailored streetwear with medieval romance. Oversized coats and capes were paired with ruffled collars and an array of brooches for a true knightly look, with a dash of retro punk from Chelsea boots, studded beanies, biker jackets, and metallic and animal prints. Of course, alternative glamour bedecked every look through layered silver pendants, thick chain necklaces, and a variety of single earrings. You can now watch the show on Celine’s YouTube channel.

Blue Jacket Fashion Show’s annual event went virtual
Last week got a hefty dose of dapper flair, courtesy of the Blue Jacket Fashion Show. The annual Janssen Oncology-sponsored runway show celebrated its fifth year of raising awareness for men’s prostate cancer on February 4, with a virtual event. Even though it couldn’t take place live, the show was nonetheless star-studded with celebs in a range of sharp blue threads (plus some sharp “blue steel” to boot!). Nigel Barker donned Brooks Brothers, Billy Porter rocked Thom Browne, and Mike Woods slipped into Joseph Abboud from Men’s Wearhouse for the special occasion.
