1. In case you missed the memo: we’re heading back to L.A. for a couple of Work Parties (and maybe some party parties, too…) Venice is sold-out but there are still a couple of tickets left for our Hollywood session with Adi Goodrich, the set designer extraordinaire behind The WW Club’s first ever space (see above). Get yours here!
2. Last week was Equal Pay Day and Tamara Mellon (founder of Jimmy Choo) marked the occasion with a strong piece for Forbes on what she did when she found out she was earning less than her male employees. (Thanks to Ala for sharing.)
3. “There’s a painful distance between the chipper narratives surrounding labor and success in America and the lived experience of workers.” A great piece on the perils of the gig economy, via The New Yorker (discovered through my lovely friend Anna Z Gray’s charming newsletter, to which you should also subscribe).
4. I can’t wait to read Durga Chew-Bose’s essay collection Too Much and Not The Mood, which comes out tomorrow. In the meantime, I’m pondering her thoughtful Q&A on Hazlitt and revisiting her Recommended Reading List from 2015 from The WW Club blog.
5. An introduction to the extremely talented (but often ignored) Women of the Bauhaus School.
6. Whatever your opinion is on Lena Dunham’s Girls, it’s almost certain that you have one. As the controversial show reaches its finale, here’s an article that gives a BTS insight into its inception and development.
7. If you’re a long-term thinker, you might enjoy this easily-digestible breakdown offive key trends (and we’re not talking nail art styles, here) that will affect us over the course of the next decade, via Man Repeller.
8. I’m greatly enjoying Joan Juliet Buck’s The Price of Illusion, which documents her fabulous career as a writer, essayist, and former editor of Vogue Paris. The writing is wonderful and the name-drops are juicy. Another recommended read (especially if you’re lucky enough to be heading off on a beach break sometime soon).
9. If you’re desperate to harness the energy of the new season but still feeling stuck in your tired winter ways, Anya Hindmarch’s career advice to “fire yourself every night” in the latest Lenny letter might help you breakthrough the fug.
10. Last but not least: don’t forget to lock into our livestreamed mentor sessions withShelley Kleyn Armistead (April 13) and Adi Goodrich (April 19) at 10.30am PST on ourFacebook page - and send in your questions while you watch!
