As we walk around, I realize the magic of seeing Korn's pieces up close. Ziwe points out a few bags that are hanging. B Corp's rigor has likely dissuaded many fashion brands from even trying. But it's what appealed to Hearst and Chloe's CEO, Riccardo Bellini, especially given the industry's lack of guidelines and standards.
In a moody autumnal palette of olive green, vermilion, denim blue, khaki, and ivory, the collection takes the workwear staples she Golden Goose Sale loves to wear and gives them a dose of Rihanna flair. If perhaps that aesthetic felt a little stiff in earlier drops, the strictness has been let out here, with slouchy army jackets, quilted cargo pants, and asymmetric sweaters emphasizing a more laid-back mood.
It's a well-known fact in the fashion industry that if you want a dress that is romantic, sophisticated, but not too infantilizing, you go to Brock Collection. And for many, that is the exact chord they want to strike on their wedding day. Ziwe doesn't opt for the scenic purse, but instead ends up grabbing a beaded red bag in the shape of a massive bow, lending a delicious pop of contrast to her black puffer coat. She also snags one of the micro-beaded purses in a cow print and a matching headband.
But brands are getting smart with their puffed-up designs, especially over at Everlane, where a sustainable puffer coat arrives ahead of the coldest months of the year. Crafted with 60 renewed plastic bottles and recycled insulation, Everlane's puffer is extra-warm and water-resistant.
