So you didn’t make it to Milan for the Salone del Mobile this year…
Neither did we—but thanks to the magic of the Internet we were able to get in on the action and take a peek at the coolest new chairs, chandeliers and other outlandishly good-looking design being unveiled this year.
We managed to get our hands on an advanced copy of next month’s T Magazine—courtesy of Friend Of Kempt, PR guru and devil-about-town Steve Rojas—and we couldn’t help but notice one of our favorite labels getting the star treatment. Actually, make that three of our favorite labels.
T’s designer spotlight features old favorites Commonwealth Utilities and Seavees, but the big surprise is Corpus, a weatherproofed nautical line that landed at Barneys this month, and is just starting to show up in glossy mags. Of course, it’s well-timed with the nautical trend, and we’re building up our raingear supply just like everyone else—but it’s still pretty impressive that they nabbed the pole position.
Naturally, if T had asked us, we might have had a few more suggestions…but there’s always next issue.
The style arbiters at the New York Times’ T Magazine have revealed what was behind the artful dishevelment of recently deceased pundit William F. Buckley Jr.: dressing up was simply beneath him.
Buckley adopted the blueblood uniform of The Millbrook School, the sort of upper crusty institution where the preppy look was born back in the day, they write, and never grew out of it.
We’ve often wondered where impeccably-tailored restaurateur Jack Lamb gets his togs; naturally we assumed he zips over to London to patronize one of the hipper Savile Row offshoots. The extra flair in his ensembles should have tipped us off however to the hand of New York’s own [Duncan Quinn](http://www.urbandaddy.com/nyc/189/Duncan_Quinn_(UD_Profile), whose clothes are “constructed to celebrate days of glory and nights of excess.”
