There’s no better time to revive Cut Lines than the start of New York’s fashion week. So let’s get to it.


The tee. 

There are some delightful Milwaukee and Wisco-pride shirts out there (many can be found at Bay View’s Sparrow Collective), but an interesting collaboration has now brought us something totally new. Former Wisconsinite Gabrielle Pedriani, the delightful style blogger behind Look Sharp, Sconnie, has teamed up with T-shirt company Sconnie Nation for a stylish take on the Wisco-loving tee. It’s more abstract than the average Badger-game gear, and the fit is wholly modern.

Pedriani says that the stripes on the shirt’s sleeve are an empowering aesthetic element. “I remember feeling really powerful when I’d wear clothing with bands or
stripes – and I thought it would be cool to add that touch to contrast the
flowey [sic] nature of the tee itself.”

So there you have it. And you don’t even need a game day excuse to wear it. 

The Milwaukee Film Festival will be screen
Advanced Style, which reveals the secrets of New York’s chicest women of a certain age. It’s on the top of my list of must-see films for the fest, which runs Sept. 25-Oct. 9. 


 

In tangentially fashion related (fashion illustrators?) news, Mount Mary’s Starving Artists show kicks off on Sunday, and everything there can be had for $100 or less. It’s a grand deal for original art.

Lastly, Mayfair Mall is adding an Athleta store “later this year,” which will be the second Milwaukee location of the Gap, Inc.-owned athletic-wear store. The first Milwaukee-area store opened at Bayshore Town Center about a year ago.
