Once a taboo accessory reserved for tourist attire, the fanny pack has successfully staged a comeback and is now cooler than ever. From the Spring 2018 runways to the street style scene and the best dressed models off-duty, the '90s staple is having the ultimate revival this season. Whether you're looking for the cool-girl styling tricks or the best designer styles to shop, here's how to wear the fanny pack in 2018.

Valentino Spring 2018 Fashion Film

valentino-spring-2018-fashion-film-feature-image
There is a real art of cutting through the noise of fashion and the team of Inez & Vinoodh, Pierpaolo Piccioli, and Riccardo Ruini have it down pat this season in their recent ValentinoSpring 2018 fashion film. The film opens with the line ‘Am I Dreaming’ from the 1989’s Paranoimia by The Art of Noise featuring Max Headroom (aka actor Matt Frewer). That 80’s inspired vision is brought to life in the simplest of ideas, stunning makeup by Diane Kendal and motion. Creative Movement Director, Stephen Galloway, is at the top of his game  coaching models Gigi Hadid, Adut Akech, Felice Noordhoff, Oumie Jammeh, Aurora  Talarico, and Rianne Van Rampaey to gesture in drama and optimism that give this short its special sauce. Kudos to Riccardo Ruini and the team at agency Riccardo...

In Praise Of Extremely Chic Bathrooms

Magnificent BathsPhotography by Massimo Listri, Courtesy of Rizzoli

we look to two books helping to redefine the way we bathe

Sylvia Plath once wrote that “there must be quite a few things that a hot bath won’t cure, but I don’t know many of them”. Bathing is of course an age-old practice, but its benefits (as Plath knew well) are not purely functional. And, as with all good things, there is a day each year dedicated to honouring the act: January 8 is National Bubble Bath Day. What better reason to reflect on the best bathrooms that publisher Rizzoli has to offer? Photographers and interior designers have long known the power of such spaces, as two excellent books – Magnificent Baths and The Perfect Bath, published in 2012 and 2016 respectively – demonstrate. Focusing on privately owned...

Slow-Cooked White Fish With Charred Cabbage

slow-cooked-white-fish-with-charred-cabbage

Sometimes with cooking, the best thing you can do is leave a thing alone. In this case, let the cabbage leaves sit and get charred around the edges before you even think about tossing them in the pan.

INGREDIENTS

12 ounces skinless, boneless firm white fish fillets (such as halibut or cod)

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided, plus more for drizzling

1 grapefruit

Kosher salt

¼ medium head of green cabbage (about 10 ounces)

⅓ cup torn mint

Freshly ground black pepper

RECIPE PREPARATION Preheat oven to 325°. Rub fish with 2 Tbsp. oil on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Using a microplane, finely grate grapefruit directly over fish 2–3 times so each fillet is seasoned with a bit of zest; season with salt. Bake fish until flesh is...

O Come, All Ye Faithful, To Brooklyn’s First Mary-Kate Olsen Worship Service

Sing hymns from the Olsens’ divine discography and experience a fashion showcase of their formative Walmart line.

Religion is about finding a belief system that suits you. What are your thoughts on the afterlife of Cocoa the hamster? Do you believe more than one God exists, and that they may even be twins? Do you swear only on the navy side of seminal 2000s tome Influence? Pick a fave paean: “Our Dog Has Eaten Our Homework” or “Gimme Pizza (High Times Version)”? If you answered any of these questions, Mary-Kate Olsen is your God, and Brooklyn’s Cloud City your church. Tomorrow, the underground theater club is hosting a very Mary-Kate worship service — aptly titled Mary-Kate Olsen Is Our God — dedicated to America’s favorite left-handed fraternal...
