The Story Behind Kanye’s Latest Style Obsession

And as Weston notes, Kanye’s affinity for Dunhill is a sign that what the brand is doing is working. Dunhill was founded in London in 1893, and became known for its luxury motoring accessories and, later, tobacco products and classic tailoring. Its identity is deeply, almost psychotically British. When Sean Connery introduces himself as “Bond, James Bond,” in “Dr. No,” his lips wrapped around a cigarette, he’s lighting up with a Dunhill lighter.

Dunhill creative director Mark Weston

The Richemont-owned brand began to shake its tweedy, Jaguar-driving associations in 2008, when a young designer named Kim Jones joined as its first creative director, establishing the label’s fashion ambitions before leaving three years later for Louis Vuitton. After a revolving door of designers failed to leave a mark, Weston landed at Dunhill in 2017 from Burberry, where he had spent nine years working under the beloved Christopher Bailey.

I’m Predicting Nordstrom’s Next 23 Cult-Favorite Items

You might have noticed that we do a lot of stories based on customer reviews. From five-star drugstore dry shampoos to the best-reviewed items at Urban Outfitters, we do these roundups because it’s always helpful to see what shoppers are saying before you take the plunge. However, this time around, I’m taking a different approach. You may know about über-popular items like Levi’s skinny jeans with over 11,000 reviews on Amazon or Zella leggings that boast over 6000 Nordstrom reviews. But what are the next cult-favorite items? That’s what I’m about to predict.

These newer arrivals or trending items don’t have thousands of reviews yet, but I predict that these items below will be the next big things. In due time, they will be cult favorites—just watch. Scroll down to shop my predictions about the next cult-favorite pieces at Nordstrom.

This Is the Prettiest Color Combination Trend of 2020

Feel free to disagree with me (which I don’t think you will), but Elsa Hosk is one of the most stylish models of our time. So when I spotted a style Q&A on her Instagram Stories last week, I admittedly watched it several times. There were lots of gems to take in (and don’t worry—she saved it in her highlights), but the one that caught my eye was her response when someone asked what her favorite color to dress in was. Her response was pink and purple, and she had plenty of photos of herself wearing the combination to back it up.

During these times, doing little things to cheer yourself up is certainly a good idea, and I don’t know about you, but wearing the pretty combination of pink and purple does that for me. (Plus, it works with loungewear too, as Hosk displays below.)
