Why Are All the Fashion Brands Starting Podcasts?

Podcasting is finally in fashion. Not fashionable—fashion-adjacent personalities, as well as publications like the Business of Fashion and your very own GQ, have already made podcasts stylish. But for years, podcasting circled luxury fashion itself like a shark with a too-refined palette. Everyone else in the world seemed to have a podcast—but the field remained largely free of capital-f Fashion.

Until, quite suddenly, now. Designers have taken to their microphones (well…sometimes), with their favorite talkers chatting away across from them in the proverbial studio. Balmain, Dior, Versace, Chanel, Gucci: all have started podcasts. Your favorite fashion brand has something to say!

Before we delve into what, precisely, it is that they are saying, we must bow in deference to a pod maverick. Each season, since June 2016, Maison Margiela creative director John Galliano has offered a rhapsodic behind-the-scenes narration of his collections. Like a Club Kid bouncer

Inside Tony Duquette’s West Hollywood Home and Studio from 1965

125 years hb

For House Beautiful’s 125th anniversary this year, we’re rewinding time by exploring the best spaces from our archive—including, so far, decorator Sister Parish’s New York Apartment, and the timeless appeal of skirted furniture. Next up, we’re visiting the West Hollywood home and studio of designer extraordinaire Tony Duquette, as seen in a 12-page spread first published in our June 1965 issue, where we dubbed it “the house of a magician.”

To truly grasp the significance of—and explore the history behind—the former residence of one of the design world’s greatest visionaries, we spoke to Hutton Wilkinson, who worked alongside Duquette on both interior and jewelry projects for nearly five decades. He now serves as the president of the Anthony and Elizabeth Duquette Foundation for the Living Arts, which is, in part, committed to preserving the legacy of Tony Duquette.

Woman leaves secret note about cheating boyfriend in bathroom

A woman on TikTok suspected her date may be a cheating boyfriend after she snooped around his bathroom.

The video was uploaded by user Molly Sharpe, who has since made her account private. In the clip, Sharpe explained that she came home with a guy she met at a bar — all while under the impression that he was single. After a few casual meet-ups, Sharpe decided to snoop around his bathroom.

“His roommate is single, and I thought he was, too,” Sharpe posted on TikTok, according to the Daily Dot, “But if this is your man, he’s cheating.”

Sharpe films the guy’s bathroom and zooms in on a pile of hair ties, makeup remover wipes and a full cosmetics bag of makeup brushes. Sharpe added that if the guy she was seeing did have a serious girlfriend, then she didn’t want that woman to find out
