Tier’s Latest Collection Is the Black Joy We Need Right Now

If there’s one word that captures the spirit of New York City-based brand Tier, it’s family. Drawn together by their Brooklyn roots, the Tier trio—Nigeria Ealey, Esaïe Jean-Simon, and Victor James—are longtime friends who evolved their brand from word-of-mouth startup to celebrity favorite in six years. But following a long period of divisiveness that took root in our country and an ongoing pandemic that isolated us from loved ones, the term resonates more deeply than usual this year.

Tier’s newest collection offers a palate cleanse: If you could bottle Black joy and splatter it on a series of knitted sweaters, sweatpants, dresses, and jackets, it would be the brand’s Project 3: Joy to the World. Tier collaborated with Brooklyn-based Haitian artist Pierre Jean-Baptiste of P Studios on pieces that “evoke the true joys and triumphs of the Black experience.”

Their labor of love looks like a figure hugging an

Everyone Is Wearing Daytime Nightgowns Now

style points

Style Points is a new weekly column about how fashion intersects with the wider world.

I have always been supremely jealous of people who slumber like the proverbial log. I’ve never been able to, but especially not now. Not when my brain is an arid desert and my dreams are peopled with a Robert Altman-sized cast of secondary characters. Sleep, when it finally visits, doesn’t feel like a relief so much as it does an extension of the day-in, day-out limbo that is quarantine life.

I feel like I’m alone in this, though, because when I open my feed these days, it’s filled with people in nightgowns. Brands like Sleeper and Dôen offer their own chic versions. The $125 “nap dress,” the breakout product of the bedding brand Hill House Home, has become an Instagram favorite. Everywhere I look, it seems, there are people lounging in eyelet.

The Full List of Nominees for the 2020 CFDA Fashion Awards

The 2020 CFDA Fashion Awards are moving ahead, but with a few changes. Earlier this year, the Council of Fashion Designers of America announced that it had postponed the in-person ceremony (dubbed by industry insiders as “fashion prom”) as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The new date is September 14, when winners of the design categories will be announced on CFDA.com and the CFDA’s social media channels.

“In this time of unprecedented challenge and change for our industry, we feel very strongly that it is important to recognize the nominees representing the best of fashion creativity,” said Tom Ford, chairman of the CFDA, in a statement. “We look forward to returning to an in-person celebration honoring the American fashion industry in 2021.”

Indeed, the 2020 edition will strictly focus on awarding the top fashion creatives in American womenswear, menswear, accessories, and emerging talent, along with global design‚ which,

Gucci Starts a New Story with Its Epilogue Collection

Transparency is top of mind of Alessandro Michele. This morning, the creative director of Gucci released a video of his latest collection, titled Epilogue, which serves as the final chapter of his “trilogy of love.” In the 12-hour livestream, the Italian brand filmed a sizable crew at Palazzo Sacchetti in Rome, Italy, where slowly but surely, all were working tirelessly to build Michele’s vision. And for him, this meant changing the rules of the fashion industry, slowing down the process, and focusing on the labor that not only goes into making the clothes, but also the images created to sell them. To wit: What goes on behind the scenes is just as thrilling as the unveiling of the final product—if not more.

This outlook (or three-part fairy tale, as Michele calls it) began in February during Milan Fashion Week, when he staged his show at the brand’s headquarters, formally
