Society's fall philanthropy season is in full swing and last night's 2008 Whitney Studio Party proved that socials aren't quite ready for private anonymous philanthropy just yet. Entitled Past Present Future the evening was underwritten by Versace which provided plenty of body conscious garments for the tight and toned bodies that seemed impervious to the chill in the New York air last night.
This morning we got an email from Filson advertising their chambray work shirt. Now given the original demographic of Filson this is hardly surprising that a classic workshirt would be a popular item to send out in mailer, but the brand has been newly adopted by the Freeman's set with every creative yuppie in the LES and Williamsburg carrying their classic briefcase.
Indeed, the adoption of hearty hard living garments at designer price points has become endemic among the hipper retailers. Chambray in particular has become a fabric of choice for everything from shirts and dresses to trousers and shorts. Chambray, a fine lightweight fabric woven with white threads across a colored warp, originated in Mesopotamia around 50000 B.C in another age of intellectual flourishing so perhaps its just a fabric of the people for the next set of snobbish people. Proving that despite Sarah Palin's feeling of safety around Carharrts and steel-toed boots anyone can adopt comfortable workwear.
The weather has finally turned chilly which has had a certain unforeseen consequence on the color of our wardrobes. You see we own a lot of black sweaters from basic boyfriend cardigans to v-neck pullovers and even full length sweater dresses. This has us feeling a little bit bland and its only two a few weeks into fall. Not wanting to spend a lot to rectify the situation we have gone on something of a scarf binge.
