The Art of High Heels

Freud famously asked: “What do women want?” Poor Sigmund, obsessively seeking an answer in the murky depths of the subconscious. Really, all he had to do was look around, and down, to realize that women want… shoes. Designer Boyarde Messenger’s hand painted collection of Charlotte Olympia pumps for Neiman Marcus is for women who want […]

Friday Fashion: Hasidic Chic

The business of fashion rests upon the notion that with every season there is a look that is new and exciting. Of course, there is nothing new under the sun. There are only old ideas dressed up to look new. Thus, it was inevitable that at some point a designer would look at traditional Hasidic […]

Friday Fashion: Being Gable

It’s often been said that every man wants to look like Cary Grant, while every man wants to be Clark Gable. A few months ago Seraphic Secret was screening one of our favorite Gable-Harlow movies, China Seas, (1935) the story of a brassy dame, a gruff sea captain and piracy on the high seas. For […]

Friday Fashion: The Female Animal

In last week’s Friday Fashion post we observed that designers frequently clothe women utilizing fur, feathers and animal patterns. For as long as fashion has existed, animal metaphors have been an indispensible part of the designer’s lexicon. Hollywood, during its golden age, a leading arbiter of taste, heightened and refined the animal analogy with brilliant […]

Friday Fashion: The Female Animal

For as long as fashion has existed, animal metaphors have been an indispensible part of the designers language.

Friday Fashion: The Exodus Edition

On Passover the Jewish people are instructed to envision that they are experiencing the Exodus from Egypt. During the Passover seder (meal) we reenact—through sacred memory animated by ritual—the passage from bondage to slavery. The Torah tells us that the Jews left Egypt with the spoils of their oppressors—compensation for 400 years of cruelty. Thus, […]

Friday Fashion: Hollywood Hats for Passover

Passover is almost here. Cleaning, changing dishes, and buying Passover food takes up a huge amount of time and energy. Observant Jews also take the opportunity to purchase new clothing in honor of the holiday in which we celebrate our deliverance from Egyptian bondage.

The great Hollywood costume designer Orry-Kelly with Ann Sheridan. Seraphic Secret likes to check out the latest fashions, scouting for beautiful but modest clothing.
