Thank you for joining me for Line Sheet’s year-end mailbag. For this issue, I endeavored to answer questions about the complicated world of celebrity styling and the fate of exiting creative directors, while unraveling the mystery disappearance of a once well-regarded LVMH brand. I’ve also shared my controversial take on the quality-clothing debate, a story of mood-board brands, middling and major, and a quest to find a replacement for a standby pair of Rag & Bone jeans, which turned into a broader examination of the brand itself, and its place in the market. Let’s get started…
