The Dream

I have a five-year-old daughter, and while inequity and empathy have been a topic of conversation in our home since she was old enough to hear me speak, this is the first January of her life that we had an honest conversation about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. On Thursday evening, I sat with her at dinner and played King’s speech from the 1963 March on Washington, and we talked about his work, his life, and the fact that he was murdered by a man who felt threatened by King’s pursuit of equality for black Americans (and all Americans). What stuck out the most for my daughter, who lost her own father two and a half years ago, was that King was taken away from his children forever by someone whose heart was filled with hate.

The Fall/Winter 2019/2020 Milan men’s collections represent a playground of high intensity sartorial games. When you walk through next season’s Milanese-style park, you get a clear sense that designers came out to play. I imagine some of them in their studios sharing giddy moments with their textile designers after a trip to a fabric mill that has recently developed some geek-worthy technique to create relief patterns. Or experiencing a euphoric high when the print test came back exactly how they imagined (ok, euphoric maybe an exaggeration, maybe just an acute sense of excitement.) Whatever the case, there was a feeling of experimentation throughout the collections that freshened up the Milanese vibe.

Whether you’re still riding high on new year’s resolutions or you’re already counting down to the 2020 New Year New You, sometimes some proper motivation and positive messaging are just what the doctor ordered to keep us focused and ready to tackle each day. At a time in which we seem to be so focused on the superficiality of the past (if I see another #10yearchallenge I may quit Instagram altogether), it is so much more inspiring to look forward to the road ahead, share our journeys with each other and fight collectively for a brighter tomorrow.
