The horrors of the COVID-19 pandemic have given rise to a wave of truly superb writing, from Sabrina Orah Mark’s lyrical, despondent Paris Review column “Fuck the Bread. The Bread Is Over” to The New Republic’s recent examination of the fleeting stability granted to many laid-off Americans by unemployment insurance benefits. Now, novelist and essayist Zadie Smith is bringing the anxiety of quarantine firmly into the Philadelphia Eagle Shirt fold with Intimations, a series of six essays detailing the daily experience of living through a global plague. Created by artist Georgia Gardner Gray, the picnic inspired print was one of the highlights of Ottolinger designers Christa Bösch and Cosima Gadient’s spring 2020 show. Modern while evoking nostalgia for carefree barbecues and days at the beach, it highlights several things this socially-distanced summer has been missing. Already a favorite with Lipa and her stylist, Lorenzo Posocco, the look seems destined to find its way into the wardrobes of cool girls everywhere.
