Legs and feet are forewarned: Next year, the mini and the pump are poised to make their big comebacks. Both were on full display Friday at Prada’s spring ’22 show, a runway event that took place in both Milan and Shanghai simultaneously for an IRL-meets-digital extravaganza that presented the women’s show look-by-look in two different cities across the world (a sign of the times not just in pandemic travel restrictions but also of the bifurcation of China and the rest of the world, in more ways than one).

Dean and Dan Caten are great showmen, but as much as they love putting on extravagant events, this season they skipped Milan’s spring catwalks in favor of a video presentation. It was actually staged as a proper fashion show and filmed in an abandoned warehouse. Even if there was no audience in attendance, it was a big production and quite challenging, according to what they said at a showroom preview. “Lots of bumps and hiccups, but the great thing about technology is that you can correct mistakes.

During the Tudum fan event, Netflix released a new look at “Don’t Look Up,” the upcoming climate change-inspired satire from writer-director Adam McKay about a trio of scientists trying to convince world leaders to take action before a deadly comet destroys the earth. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, and Rob...

Imaginary friends have one huge plus – they never let you down. In that glorious way that modern life works, a phrase rarely uttered outside therapist’s dinner parties has breached the border wall and has now spread itself thickly across the internet. Like “gaslighting” and “narcissism” before it, this week the “parasocial relationship” is the subject of every third online conversation, and every fifth IRL.

While most of the fashion world has embraced the renewed possibility of IRL events this season, Moncler Genius has opted to keep its digital arms wide open. Today, the Italian house showcased its newest offerings via a live-streamed online experience, titled MONDOGENIUS. Hosted by the Grammy award-winning musician Alicia Keys, the event brings together the worlds of fashion, film, music, art, sport and beyond in a multifaceted celebration of community and culture. (Think: a performance by Victoria Song, art by Erwin Wurm and a cinematic contribution by Luca Guadagnino – and that’s just for starters.)

Video games felt like our only entertainment last year, but now that many of us are out and about again, it's time to slash the screen time and enjoy living IRL.

Do you consider yourself a good listener? The odds are that you do. Most people do. You might do a little eye roll when you hear that because you know so many people who are * not * good listeners.
