The shock of Oscar de la Renta’s death last night is still resonating. The legendary fashion line named Peter Copping as the heir to the designer’s position as creative director only a week ago. The sense at the time is that Copping would have time to find his feet with the master watching. But it was not to be.
Below the cut, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite looks, from his collections and from celebrities. He was one of the grand masters, we will not see his like again for a long time.

I was a little distracted when the firs Aphex Twin album in 13 years came out, and didn’t get a chance to listen to it. I’ll admit, I wasn’t expecting much. 2001’s Drukqs seemed the last gasp of a dying era of 90s electronica.

Unfortunately, it’s also marred by Doritos. If I’m going to have to be irritated by product placement, let’s make it an in-world way of tying in, like CapitolTV’s new series.
All that being said, this is a great trailer.
The TV teaser trailer is a single line of dialogue this week, but it;s such a fabulous Doctor-like line that it’s going above the fold.
The Next Time trailer gives us a better overview of the plot.
Just a reminder to those still working their way through school.
