news flash



I rang in the new year in bed, with my right ankle massively swollen from a tennis injury, reading Puck's Line Sheet, the fashion-oriented, insider info-steeped newsletter, written by former Business of Fashion journalist (and my former co-worker at Lucky Magazine) Lauren Sherman. It comes out twice a week, and each dispatch makes me 10x more knowledgeable. Her last one touched on everything from Unilever's acquisition of  K18, a three year-old line of science-based, superhero hair products (which prompted me try the hair mask that reverses damage in 4 minutes!) to Sporty & Rich's founder Emily Oberg (and her $30M a year in sales). While most of her writing is objective reporting, she did reveal her bias for Reformation jeans, explaining that they're designed by denim expert Benjamin Talley Smith who also designs/consults for Khaite, Ulla Johnson, Re/Done and Everlane, and feature zero branding and flattering fits. (P.S. They're also under $200.) Sold on her rec, I snapped up the wide-leg pair, below, and then further pursued the (new) denim beat and bought these on-sale Nili Lotan jeans, the slim-fitting H&M, below, and the pleated, gold-buttoned English Factory, last pic. New year, new jeans!
