Balenciaga launched its fall 2020 collection on a flooded runway with images of fiery blazes and rushing waves projected across the ceiling. The first few rows of seats were empty because they were almost entirely underwater, and models strutted through the swampy raised stage in drapey oversized raincoats, Matrix-like full-length black leather jackets, and bodysuits that look straight out of the Black Panther wardrobe trailer, complete with knee and shoulder pads. One model was styled as a walking mace, his jacket flanked with sharp spikes.

The leather ski boot played an important role in getting the Limmer business to where it is today. For the elite members of Harvard’s outing club, the top-of-the-line ski boot was a status symbol. “If you didn’t have a pair of his [ski] boots, you weren’t anybody,” says the present-day Peter Limmer. But then, Robert “Bob” Lange, founder of the Lange ski boot company and creator of the plastic molded ski boots still used today, glued strips of fiberglass cut from his boat to his pair of Limmers in order to further fortify and stiffen them. It was the first pair of plastic-reinforced ski boots ever made.
Do you carry a laptop on your daily commute? All it takes is one crowded train ride to realize you need ample protection. But, laptop security doesn’t need to come at the price of style. You need a bag that can handle your commute, offer total peace of mind, and store all your stuff, all while looking good doing it.
Stains are the bane of many a designer bag addict’s life – they are impossible to completely avoid unless the only reason you bought that pricey tote is to keep it in its dust bag at home.
While nothing beats a professional cleaning, sometimes, a few common household items may be all you need to save that expensive purchase from being marred by makeup, ink, food or wine.
