    American Ivy: Chapter 1

    American Ivy: Chapter 1

    A trend forecaster follows up on a trend report from 2016. A prominent fashion buyer tells me his trends for fall 2022. And I wonder why one particular trend, against all odds, seems to come back over and over again

    American Ivy: Chapter 2

    American Ivy: Chapter 2

    So where does Ivy begin? The short answer: Princeton University. The long answer is a spiral that takes us from a 1940s Chinese prison camp, to the raucous party culture of 1920s London, to the docks of downtown New York City after The War of 1812.

    American Ivy: Chapter 3

    The look of the elite somehow becomes the look for everyone. And as more and more people are taking on Ivy, it only becomes cooler and cooler. Which goes against everything I thought I knew about trends.

    American Ivy: Chapter 4

    American Ivy: Chapter 5

    American Ivy: Chapter 5

    Ralph Lauren ascends. And so does a slender little joke book that no one expected to be a colossal, massive bestseller. Just in time for the secret fashion revolution of the 1980s that no one ever talks about.

    American Ivy: Prologue

    Articles of Interest is a show about what we wear. And for a long time, one particular look has come back in style again and again and again. Or maybe it never went away. Season 3 will get to the bottom of it.

Highly recommend!

A self-contained spin off of 99% Invisible, this is a wonderful podcast about clothing with a slightly historical bend. The host is an excellent storyteller. This series has the same magic of making the mundane interesting!

Avery has out done herself!

This series absolutely is deserved of its five star rating.
Beautifully pieces together, audio is fantastic, stories are captivating and I learnt so much.
I can’t look at clothes the same anymore.
Thank Avery. You’ll be deeply missed by from the 99PI line up.
Good luck
