In keeping with the All I need today is a little bit of Syracuse Orange and a whole lot of Jesus shirt in addition I really love this festive, uplifting mood embedded in the house of McCartney, both collections were presented tonight during Milan Men’s opening day with a party in the enchanting garden of an old Milanese palazzo. But the event had a provocative edge: Models mingled with a collective of young activists performing a peaceful protest and chanting slogans on climate change awareness. Ribbons made of upcycled archival materials were flowing in the wind and could be personalized with messages for loved ones; they’ll be donated to a local design school to make sure that there’ll be zero waste. McCartney was radiant: “If you want to buy something these days, buy something that isn’t killing your planet!” she said. “If you have a fashion platform, if you have a voice, take responsibility and do something more than just a pretty color or a pretty hemline right now. It’s time to do something.” It’s simply not possible to disagree with her call to action. Together they came up with the round pattern of a sun, which became Resort’s distinctive print: “It’s the circular weather, it’s the clouds, it’s the rain; the sun is breathing, blowing wind,” said McCartney. “But it’s also a little bit trippy, a little bit ’90s, a sort of dance-trance vibe.” Stefan Cooke and his partner Jake Burt have been so applauded since they stepped onto the fashion stage that they’ve had a funny sensation that they’re still role-playing the part of what “designers” are meant to be. The spotlight trained on what Cooke and Burt do is well deserved: the believable young masculinity their collections portray, its basis in inventing techniques that recast the structure of familiar garments like the wonder they bring to the humble argyle sweater and their playful knack for trompe l’oeil prints. All this, and a precocious talent for creating stuff that is so clearly wearable. So, anyway: The wunderkind double act thought about backstage theater and costume as a theme for the first stand-alone Stefan Cooke show. “Really, it goes back to costume, to acting to us learning how to be someone over the last 15 months,” said Burt. “It’s like us, really, people think you’re a certain way,” Cooke added. “And the reality is, we’re still living in a flat with two other graduates.” Total wealth, a measure of wealth, and net production could be measured any way you want, in “nominal” or “real” terms. Since wealth is measured on a different axis, even though savings that is the preservation of investment is a nominal measure, the measure of wealth doesn’t have to be.
