You are who you know — a truism forcefully demonstrated this week when Kristin Juszczyk, who happens to be married to the San Francisco 49ers fullback, Kyle Juszczyk, signed a deal with the N.F.L. to use its logos on the football jersey-like puffer jackets she designs.
That agreement, first reported by Sportico, came on the heels of Taylor Swift wearing one of Ms. Juszczyk’s puffer jackets to a Kansas City Chiefs game last month. On the jacket was 87, the number worn by her boyfriend, Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce. Brittany Mahomes, the wife of the Kansas City quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, has also worn a jacket by Ms. Juszczyk.
With San Francisco and Kansas City facing off in Super Bowl LVIII on Feb. 11, Ms. Juszczyk, Ms. Mahomes and Ms. Swift are likely to be cheering there from the sidelines. Want to bet on what they’ll be wearing?
Moschino Starts New Chapter After a Tragedy
Adrian Appiolaza, who has been a design director at Loewe and at Chloé, was appointed as the new creative director at Moschino this week. His predecessor, Davide Renne, died suddenly in November, just nine days after starting the job.
Born in Buenos Aires, Mr. Appiolaza, 51, emphatically looks the part. A photo distributed with a news release announcing his appointment shows him wearing a kinetically patterned floral-print shirt and cuffed jeans, his get-up garnished with ear gauges and suspenders. The look recalls the cheeky style of his predecessors at the Milanese fashion house — Jeremy Scott, in particular — as well as its baldly ironic heritage.
How Mr. Appiolaza puts his stamp on that heritage will soon be revealed: His first collection for Moschino will be shown on Feb. 22 during Milan Fashion Week.
Mob Wife Aesthetic? Try Mob Boss.
TikTok has shown us that these days anyone can dress like a mob wife. But in the new Netflix miniseries “Griselda,” which premiered last week, Sofía Vergara attempts to channel the style of a rarer breed: the female mob boss.
She plays Griselda Blanco, the Lurex-and-lamé-clad chieftain of a Miami cartel. While her flashy costumes for the series evoke the aesthetic being feverishly documented on social media, they also seem to dial up gangster power. As Griselda rises in the underworld, she seeds her wardrobe of slinky charmeuse, spangles and mink with the occasional piece by Halston, Thierry Mugler or Diane von Furstenberg.
Sarah Evelyn, who created the costumes with Safowa Bright Bitzelberger, said that a focus was on items that deliberately showed off curves.
“Griselda’s body-conscious silhouette was powerful in itself,” Ms. Evelyn said of the look favored by the drug lord. “It says, ‘I’m going to take the way you objectify me and turn it on its head.’”
Makeup of Dreams (or Nightmares)
It has been a full week since John Galliano’s Maison Margiela Artisanal show at couture week in Paris. But the buzz goes on, thanks in part to the makeup wizardry of Pat McGrath, who transformed the show’s models into porcelain dolls.
Though Ms. McGrath has yet to comment on how she gave their faces an eerie latexlike sheen, some — including Bratz dolls — have already attempted to imitate it. In an Instagram post, the toys known for their pouty lips and tart attitudes debuted a new look inspired by Ms. McGrath’s otherworldly paint. One user who shared the post wrote in a caption, “I realized that I never wanted a Bratz doll more.”
The Manhattan Vintage Show Gets RealReal
At the latest installment of the Manhattan Vintage Show, which runs through Feb. 4 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, a chunk of space will be full of items from The RealReal.
The online purveyor of used luxury goods is a new partner and vendor at the event, which was recently taken over by Amy Abrams and her husband, Ronen Glimer. As the new owners of the two-decade-old show, they have attempted to court a wider audience to the event, which has long been a spawning ground for old-is-new-again trends. “We are opening our doors to students, designers and shoppers of every stripe,” Ms. Abrams said.
What styles in the past does she think will most excite present-day shoppers? Some will pursue Y2K fashion, she said, but she thinks the savviest may gravitate toward items that channel Jackie Kennedy in the 1960s.
Ms. Abrams herself will revisit the early ’90s: She is planning to attend in a black Jiki Monte-Carlo cocktail dress with a fox collar, a frock she likes for its coquettish effect. “A friend recently told me, You look like a cross between ‘The Nanny’ and ‘Pretty Woman,’” she said. “Don’t you love it?”
