Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale Summer 2019 – Picks for Men

Heads up: Buying via our links may result in us getting a commission. Here’s why.

Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale Summer 2019

It’s arguably one of the better sales of the year. No codes to wrangle. No extra % coming off once something hits your cart. The price you see is the price you pay, and since it’s Nordstrom, everything ships and returns for free. Everything. Plus, Nordstrom is the rare department store that has curated some really nice upper scale brands, and balances those more expensive items with their more affordable, still solid quality, house-brand goods.

So what’s the catch? When they do a sale, it’s always huge. As in inventory. As in 7,000 items this time. There’s a boatload of pages to scroll through and browse. That’s a lot of clicking. And we went through all of it. As always, the picks below are limited to those with at least a decent size selection at post time.

 

Nordstrom Tech Wool Sportcoats – $ 149.49 ($ 299)

Nordstrom

A very, very nice price, for a 97% wool / 3% spandex sportcoat. Perfect, lighter shades for spring and summer, but I don’t see any reason why you couldn’t wear these in fall and winter as well. Wrinkle resistant. Extra pockets on the inside.

 

Nordstrom Trim Fit Non-Iron Dress Shirt – $ 32.90 ($ 49.50)

Nordstrom Trim Fit Non-Iron Dress Shirt

A basic, but a well executed basic in a trim fit that’s always appreciated extra-amounts when it goes on sale.

 

Calibrate Extra Trim Fit Dinner Jacket & Matching Pant – $ 198.98 ($ 398)

Calibrate Extra Trim Fit Dinner Jacket & Matching Pant

Under $ 200 for a navy, shawl collar tux? It’s pretty modern (a pretty thin shawl collar), but still. Nice. 50% wool and 50% poly. It is wedding season after all. Glad they found some pants. The jacket has been in the sale section for a while, but there weren’t any pants left, if memory serves.

 

Monte Rosso Made in Italy Lazio Cap-Toe Oxford – $ 249.90 ($ 375)

Monte Rosso Made in Italy Lazio Cap-Toe Oxford

To go with the tux. You’re gonna need some black oxfords if you’re wearing a tux somewhere. Word is they run large and you’ll want to order the next size down?

 

1901 Rowan D-Ring Leather Belt – $ 29.70 ($ 49.50)

1901 Rowan D-Ring Leather Belt

When I finally say “screw it!” and move to the woods, this’ll be the kind of belt I’ll probably wear all the time. That is, assuming I’m wearing pants. Which is far from a guaranteed. Nothin’ says get outta mah forrest quite like porky piggin’ it.

 

Bonobos Jetsetter Slim Fit Stretch Wool Blazer – $ 334.98 ($ 500)

Bonobos Jetsetter Slim Fit Stretch Wool Blazer

Spendy, but Bonobos knows what they’re doing when it comes to sportcoats. 97% wool and 3% spandex. Would look dynamite with lightweight chinos for the heat ahead, and could also pull some serious social studies teacher duty with jeans in the fall.

 

Common Projects Retro Sneaker – $ 278.98 ($ 465)

Common Projects Retro Sneaker

Unpopular opinion time: I don’t “get” the Common Projects hype. The prices are comparatively absurd. And I think the foil stamped number on the outside is dumb. “Low-Key branding” my fat arse. They’ve literally stamped their calling card in reflective gold type on the outside of your ankle. But, this site isn’t about me. And never will be. So, buy away if it’s your thing! Also, hi reddit subs who love to post deals we find and not give us credit. I see you. UPDATE: And they’re gone. I’m shocked. Shocked!

 

Cole Haan Pinch LX Sneaker – $ 89.90 ($ 150)

Cole Haan Pinch LX Sneaker

Or there’s these for almost $ 200 less. But what do I know. Why you’d name anything that’s fit-based the “pinch” is beyond my grasp, but, I think it’s one of Cole Haan’s more popular lines. So, beats me. Again, I know nothing.

 

1901 Ballard Slim Fit Stretch Chino Pants – $ 35.70 ($ 59.50)

1901 Ballard Slim Fit Stretch Chino Pants

From their younger leaning 1901 house brand, so I’m gonna assume that these are a true slim fit. 97% cotton, 3% spandex with a 14″ leg opening.

 

Levis x Justin Timberlake Colorblock Trucker – $ 88.80 ($ 148)

Levis x Justin Timberlake Colorblock Trucker

Man of the woods and all that. I heard “Bye Bye Bye” by NSYNC the other day. Goodness that was a throwback. Hard not to dance to. Or move to. Or convulse to. Or, well, whatever happens when you’re a few pints deep.

 

Smartwool Burgee Geometric Socks – $ 12.57 ($ 20.95)

Smartwool Burgee Geometric Socks

Wool is so much better than cotton, in so many ways. And Smartwool makes a REALLY nice sock. Or, socks. So much so that I got all three pairs here for myself. Prefer stripes? Here you go.

 

Nordstrom Trim Fit Mélange Sport Coat – $ 149.49 ($ 299)

Nordstrom Trim Fit Mélange Sport Coat

A lightweight blend of wool, silk, and linen, AND they didn’t fully line the back? Just butterfly lined? For $ 150? Dang Nordstrom. You tempting and then some. Want it in some check patterns? Done. They have those too.

 

adidas Handball Spezial Sneaker – $ 77.96 ($ 129.95)

adidas Handball Spezial Sneaker

Whoa. Serious 70’s sport vibes here.

 

Nordstrom Signature 58% cashmere, 42% linen sweater – $ 89.49 ($ 179)

From one of their high end lines. Not cheap, but it could be the perfect spring/summer sweater. And yes, there is such a thing as a spring/summer sweater. The weather can be unpredictable. The wind can kick up at the beach and all of a sudden you (or your date) is cold. And then there’s once the sun goes down. Huge thanks to Sean H. for sending in the tip, who said: I’ve seen this in person and it is fantastic- never pulled the trigger (despite every fiber in being wanting to) because of the high price tag but it’s now included in the sale so I was able to order one. 

 

1901 Extra Trim Fit Chambray Sport Coat – $ 83.98 ($ 168)

1901 Extra Trim Fit Chambray Sport Coat

Light and breezy for the spring and summer. And now, thanks to the sale, cheap! Cotton linen blend. Totally unlined in the back.

 

Nordstrom EXTRA Trim Fit Dress Shirts – $ 32.90 ($ 49.50)

Nordstrom EXTRA Trim Fit Dress Shirts

When someone yells “HEY SLIM!” in a crowded room, do you look up to answer? Then these shirts are for you. Not just their trim fit, but their extra trim fit. Lots of colors.

 

Criquet “Range” Regular Fit Jersey Polo – $ 50.40 ($ 84)

Criquet "Range" Regular Fit Jersey Polo

I’m pretty floored that not only are these on sale, they’re 40% off. Fifty bucks still isn’t cheap for a polo, far from it, but they’re a super popular, jersey knit polo with collar stays. Four colors to pick from. Also pictured at the top of the post.

 

Criquet Regular Fit Players Jersey Polo – $ 47.40 ($ 79)

Criquet Regular Fit Players Jersey Polo

Their flagship polo. With the pocket. Still has collar stays, so, don’t worry if that’s what you’re after. They’re here too. 100% Organic Cotton.

 

Nordstrom Leather Jacket – $ 199.49 ($ 399)

Nordstrom Leather Jacket

Sporty. Black leather, snap band collar (instead of a floppy bomber style), and a price that feels quite good as long as the leather looks and feels decent in person. And if it doesn’t? You can send it back for free. Thanks Uncle Nordy.

 

Good Man Brand Slim Fit Vintage Twill Knit Sport Coat – $ 178.80 ($ 298)

Good Man Brand Slim Fit Vintage Twill Knit Sport Coat

As super comfortable and well made as Good Man Brand sportcoats are… they are SHORT. Super chopped in the tail. Which can work with a t-shirt or a henley or something, but I wouldn’t wear this with a collared shirt and slacks. Just a heads up.

 

1901 Colton Suede Belt – $ 29.70 ($ 49.50)

1901 Colton Suede Belt

Suede! Texture for now, texture for later. Works both in warm weather and in the cooler months. And, since that texture is a purposeful break from smooth leather shoes, you don’t have to worry about perfectly matching your belt to your kicks. Any of these would look great with some white sneakers. Speaking of…

 

1901 Sloan White Leather Sneakers – $ 59.96 ($ 99.95)

1901 Sloan White Leather Sneakers

White leather sneakers have become just about an essential in most men’s wardrobes, no? Okay, maybe not essential, but they sure are versatile.

 

1901 Stripe Crewneck Sweater – $ 34.75 ($ 69.50)

1901 Stripe Crewneck Sweater

One of those sweaters that if you’re new to dressing a bit more intentionally, you might take a pass on. Why? Because of the shoulder buttons. But they were put there long, long ago so sailors could get the things over their heads, and then button them up tight to keep sea spray out. Now, they’ve hung around like epaulets on a trench coat. And they’re subtle. But still kinda cool. I wear my version from Lands’ End (sadly, long gone in terms of stock) all the time.

 

Nordstrom Athletic Fit Textured Chinos – $ 44.75 ($ 89.50)

Nordstrom Athletic Fit Textured Chinos

Yay. Something that’s not a super slim cut, and instead made for those of us on team leg day. Oxford style texture to the cloth.

 

Made in Italy Rodd & Gunn Wool/Linen Sport Coat – $ 238.80 ($ 398)

Made in Italy Rodd & Gunn Wool/Linen Sport Coat

Italian made, a seasonally appropriate shade, and a 52% wool / 48% linen blend.

 

Goodlife Slim Swim Trunks – $ 58.80 ($ 98)

Goodlife Slim Swim Trunks

Shades of the trunks Daniel Craig wore in Casino Royale? Y’know, minus the shrink-wrapped effect.

 

Made in Italy Rodd & Gunn Wool Blend Blazer – $ 238.80 ($ 398)

Made in Italy Rodd & Gunn Wool Blend Blazer

Looks to be a box-weave hopsack? Or something along those lines? Not bad for a made in Italy sportcoat. Lots of potential here. Appears to be mostly unlined as well.

 

Cole Haan Harrison Grand Cap Toe Oxford – $ 139.90 ($ 220)

Cole Haan Harrison Grand Cap Toe Oxford

Are they Allen Edmonds? No! Are they worth a shot if you don’t have AE money, you need a conservative dress shoe that’ll also be comfortable, and you’re not willing to commit to a pair of shoes for life? Of course.

 

John W. Nordstrom Italian Wool Flat Front Trousers – $ 95.40 ($ 159)

John W. Nordstrom Italian Wool Flat Front Trousers

Really, REALLY nice dress pants. Made in Italy from Zignone wool. From their higher end “John W. Nordstrom” line.

 

Nordstrom Silk Knit Tie – $ 39.75 ($ 79.50)

Nordstrom Silk Knit Tie

Most are more than fine with picking up cheap ties here and there, but the problem with cheap ties is that sometimes they can feel… cheap. Imagine that. Bad knots, weird fabric, etc. That shouldn’t be the case here. And if it arrives and you’re not thrilled? Send it back. For free. Lots of colors to pick from. Big fan of that hunter green on the left.

 

Bonobos Jetsetter Slim Fit Stretch Wool Blazer – $ 301.49 ($ 450)

Bonobos Jetsetter Slim Fit Stretch Wool Blazer

97% wool and 3% spandex. Hits a lot of right notes for the warmer weather ahead. On sale, but not final sale. Which is always a plus with Nordstrom.

 

Nordstrom “Shane” Bucks – $ 83.71 ($ 124.95)

Nordstrom "Shane" Bucks

From their mainline, men’s house line. Bucks but not super preppy thanks to the muted shades. Plus, these look to be a little sleeker through the toe, and not so bulbous like traditional bucks?

 

Criquet 93% pima / 7% stretch Players Polo – $ 53.40 ($ 89)

Criquet Polos

More Criquet. This time in a stretchy, 7% spandex, 93% cotton version. More color options here, and this is their flagship design with the pocket.

 

Nordstrom Trim Fit Dress Shirt in Cotton Texture – $ 39.90 ($ 69.50)

Nordstrom Trim Fit Dress Shirt in Cotton Texture

Basics from a trusted source at a more than reasonable price. A bit of texture. Nothing crazy.

 

Belstaff Racemaster Water Resistant Waxed Cotton Jacket – $ 329.98 ($ 550)

Belstaff Racemaster Water Resistant Waxed Cotton Jacket

A shorter version of the Roadmaster, which is the one with the belt. Which not everyone wants to mess with. Which is understandable. So they made this thing!

 

Nordstrom The Rail Payson Chelsea Boot – $ 60.26 ($ 89.95)

Nordstrom The Rail Payson Chelsea Boot

Yes you CAN wear boots in the warmer weather. Chukkas work. As do chelseas. Especially more casually constructed, suede chelseas like these form Nordstrom’s entry line house brand.

 

Bonobos Jetsetter Slim Fit Knit Cotton Sport Coat – $ 234.49 ($ 350)

Bonobos Jetsetter Slim Fit Knit Cotton Sport Coat

Another knit sportcoat, this time from Bonobos in a “Brown melange knit.” 100% cotton here.

 

Nordstrom Lightweight Overcoat – $ 99.49 ($ 199)

Nordstrom Lightweight Overcoat

The simple, navy mac is about as versatile and useful as it gets in men’s outerwear. And this one is now half off, and just under a hundred bucks.

 

1901 Marled Slub Slim Fit Polo – $ 24.75 ($ 49.50)

1901 Marled Slub Slim Fit Polo

That’s more like it. Had my eye on these, but fifty bones seemed like a lot. Now half off and under $ 25. Say it with me: Button Down Collar Polos!!

 

Cole Haan Feathercraft Grand Derby – $ 120.60 ($ 180)

There’s something about these things. Especially that gray suede option?

 

Herschel Supply Co Strand XL Tote Bag – $ 47.98 ($ 80)

Herschel Supply Co Strand XL Tote Bag

There are worse ways to carry your crap. Especially, say, if you’re a new Dad and you’ve gotta lug around diapers and what not. (Hi Adam!) Dimensions are 16″H x 17″H x 7 ½”D.

 

Made in the USA Goodlife Henley – $ 48.98 ($ 98)

Made in the USA Goodlife Henley

Spendy. But, made in the USA. So should appeal to those that want to keep as much of their style spending as possible supportive of the good ol’ US of A.

 

adidas Samba OG Sneaker – $ 53.56 ($ 79.95)

adidas Samba OG Sneaker

Another alternative to the J. Crew Nike Killshot. Sizes are a bit scattered here though, being that they’ve been cooking in the sale section for a little bit now?

 

Bonobos Peak or Shawl Lapel Tux Jacket & Matching Pant – $ 669.98 ($ 1000)

Bonobos Tux

Jeebus. That’s a lot of money. At that point, Suitsupply’s tux package, where you get a shirt, tie, and shoes (along with the tux) might be worth your while.

 

Herschel Supply Co Novel Canvas Duffle Bag – $ 59.98 ($ 85)

The compact gym bag design to end all gym bag designs? The very thoughtfully designed number from Herschel. Separate compartment for shoes. Now down to $ 60 in the camo print.

 

Nordstrom Shark Attack Socks – $ 7.49 ($ 12.50)

Nordstrom Shark Attack Socks

Amity, as you know, means friendship.

 

TBNY Benjamin Double Monk Strap – $ 234.49 ($ 350)

TBNY Benjamin Double Monk Strap

To Boot New York shoes don’t satisfy the shoe snobs. The construction and materials are good, not amazeballs. But sometimes they nail a design, and that appears to be the case here. Perfect, timeless toe. Slim sole. (Assuming its Blake stitched?) And those buckles are nice and subtle. Not some big, rigid, clunky, flashy hunks of metal. Full marks. Made in Italy.

 

TheTieBar Pocket Square Trios – $ 20.10 ($ 30)

TheTieBar Pocket Square Trios

Three pocket squares in similar color schemes (or in the case of the white, with differing piped edges). All for less for what one pocket square from a more famous brand would run you. More than a couple of color schemes to pick from. Ships free too, being that it’s Nordstrom.

 

Ledbury Jasper Tailored Fit Dot Dress Shirt – $ 97.15 ($ 145)

Ledbury Jasper Tailored Fit Dot Dress Shirt

DOTS! Dots are good. Dots are modern. And Ledbury shirts are amazing. They aren’t cheap, but they are amazing. Can’t swing the price? Understandable. You can get your fill of blue and dots via a less expensive Nordstrom house brand dress shirt right here.

 

Shoe the Bear Linden Sneaker – $ 97.15 ($ 145)

Shoe the Bear Linden Sneaker

More simple, leather sneakers. But not so simple that they’re boring. Still light years away from the “intentionally ugly” territory.

 

Topman Mac Jacket – $ 72.00 ($ 120)

Topman Mac Jacket

Sometimes you just need a mac to get around town in. And this appears to be a winner. Cotton/Poly blend fabric should keep the rain out. Perfectly placed pockets. Length = suit jacket coverage. Or, you could always spend 4x as much and get this from BOSS.

 

Hart Schaffner Marx Sportcoats in Light Grey – $ 296.98 or Tan – $ 356.98

Hart Schaffner Marx Sportcoats

Both are made in Canada. Light gray option is a 98% wool, 2% elastane fabric, while the tan is a stretch blend of 55% viscose, 44% wool, 1% elastane. Both are 40% off.

 

Gitman Regular Fit Pinpoint Cotton Oxford – $ 77.49 ($ 155)

Gitman Regular Fit Pinpoint Cotton Oxford

Not bad for a made in the USA, timeless classic. Lavender here. Not blue or white, but, lavender isn’t a bad way to step outside that blue and white box.

 

Made in Italy Rodd & Gunn wool/cotton/linen Sportcoat – $ 238.80 ($ 398)

Made in Italy Rodd & Gunn wool/cotton/linen Sportcoat

Mainly wool with a good dose of cotton and a little linen for texture. 65% wool, 27% cotton, 8% linen is the exact mix. Trim fit? Sure seems like it according to the reviews. Made in Italy.

 

Nordstrom Vincent Plain Toe Derby – $ 83.71 ($ 124.95)

Nordstrom Vincent Plain Toe Derby

Simple suede bluchers in a dress shoe silhouette. Think less clunk than your standard suede buck.

 

Nordstrom Tech-Smart Trim Fit Stretch Gingham Dress Shirt – $ 45.90 ($ 69.50)

Nordstrom Tech-Smart Trim Fit Stretch Gingham Dress Shirt

GIGGITY GIGGITY GIGGITY GIGGITY GIGGITY GIGGITY GIGGITY GIGGITY

GIGGITY GIGGITY GIGGITY GIGGITY
… Gingham.

Also available in an extra trim fit.

 

Bonobos Jetsetter Slim Fit Italian Knit Sport Coat – $ 234.49 ($ 350)

Bonobos Jetsetter Slim Fit Italian Knit Sport Coat

Dressed up but also easy to dress down thanks to it being a knit. 70% cotton / 30% poly.

 

Bonobos Slim Fit Performance Polo – $ 38.86 ($ 58)

Bonobos Slim Fit Performance Polo

I don’t have any personal experience with this particular blend (this one is 50% Drytex acrylic, 38% cotton, 12% modal), but Bonobos usually makes a solid product. And their slim fit, which is what these are, is appreciated by many.

 

Nordstrom Smartcare Trim Fit Check Dress Shirt – $ 45.90 ($ 69.50)

Nordstrom Smartcare Trim Fit Check Dress Shirt

I don’t know why checks, specifically windowpane style checks like these, don’t get more credit. They’re hugely versatile, and a nice way to mix it up but not stray too far away from the usual solid and stripe routine.

 

Nordstrom Tech-Smart Trim Fit Stretch Wool Travel Trousers – $ 64.49 ($ 129)

Nordstrom Tech-Smart Trim Fit Stretch Wool Travel Trousers

Wool that’s been woven to be extra breathable, crease resistant, and move with you. 97% wool, 3% spandex.

 

Timex x Todd Snyder Watches – $ 74 ($ 148)

Timex x Todd Snyder Watches

Still kicking around in the sale section. Half off. Ships and returns for free. Not a bad way to scratch a new watch itch for not too many dollars.

 

1901 Extra Trim Fit Wool Sport Coat – $ 149.49 ($ 299)

1901 Extra Trim Fit Wool Sport Coat

EXTRA trim fit here. 100% hopsack wool. Burgundy shade that’s farrrrr from fire engine red. So, should be not too difficult to find good looking pants (try white or off white jeans) to wear with it.

 

The Rail Everett Plain Toe Derby – $ 66.96 ($ 99.95)

The Rail Everett Plain Toe Derby

Those shoes sure are shoey! Plain toe derby = probably what you’d see in a dictionary if you looked up the word shoe. Maybe. Who knows. Depends on how fancy the illustrator was feeling that day. From a Nordstrom house line. For the less is more crowd. And warm weather, for some reason, makes simple bluchers like these look all the better.

 

NNNNNOPE! Gucci Colorblock Velour Track Pants – $ 749.98 ($ 1500)

Gucci Colorblock Velour Track Pants

Leave it to Gucci to take a style already pre-disposed to fugly (joggers) and make them in the most icky fabric possible (velour) and ratchet up the fug even more through some sort of evil design magic. Those things look like the dumpster contents of a 3rd-rate colonic shop. But what do I know, I’m just some bum who wears Old Navy from time to time.

The Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale is set to expire on June 2nd. And remember, everything ships and returns for free.

2019 Cannes Film Festival: Toni Garrn Cohosts Charity Cannes Lunch With Amend

GIVING BACK: “I first worked here when I did a Chanel cruise show up on that hill, I remember walking down was weird, walking up was weird, too. I love this location and I’ve supported a lot of amfARs here,” said Toni Garrn, slipping into her seat at a charity lunch and auction she cohosted with Amend on Friday on the terrace of the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc, with views across the Mediterranean.
Over 130,000 euros was raised at the event, with event producer Andy Boose auctioning off items including a Terry O’Neill photo of David Bowie and Elizabeth Taylor and a Chopard Happy Love watch. Guests included Remo Ruffini, John Nollet, Ellen von Unwerth and Daria Strokous, with the funds raised going to Amend’s programs for preventing road traffic injuries to children in Africa and the Toni Garrn Foundation, which supports education initiatives for girls in Africa.
In business mode, Garrn wore a pink suit by Victoria Hayes. “I feel like a Barbie,” said the model-turned-actor, whose latest roles include playing a German secret agent in “Spider-Man: Far From Home.”
“I have a very strong German accent, it’s really fun. I get to give Tom [Holland], who plays Spiderman, a new suit because

Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2019

This big, bold collection drew on the industrial north of England, Fifties ballrooms and Eighties punks, with debutante styles strolling alongside tailored, mannish silhouettes. Eveningwear was a hybrid of punk and couture, with fat bunches of tulle sprouting from under the full sleeves of silk, rose-printed tops and double duchess satin dresses with raw, frayed edges. Those dresses were often slashed, with uneven hemlines and bejeweled safety pins, or tough leather belts at the waist. Other dresses glittered with crystal chandelier style adornments or garlands of diamanté jewelry, while slimmer styles were spliced together from wool silk and thick satin.
Daywear was done in sturdy English fabrics, as in a hybrid coat that was part houndstooth, part double duchess silk, while suits came as peg leg trousers paired with jackets that had trompe-l’oeil double lapels. Other wool jackets had built-in, corset-style belts or big flourishes of fabric flaring from one side, while a trench was a patchwork of white gabardine and black–and-white Prince of Wales check. Shapely knit dresses, tops and skirts were modeled on Fifties corsetry styles, while leathers came in a dramatic claret trench or black skirt suit with short, bell-like sleeves.

2019 Cannes Film Festival: Eva Longoria On Hollywood’s ‘Sisterhood and Community of Information”

CANNES, France — “I was lucky because it was called ‘Desperate Housewives’ and not ‘Desperate Husbands,’” quipped Eva Longoria during a Kering Women in Motion talk at the Majestic Hotel on Friday.
The Time’s Up co-founder, whose activism and charitable work has taken on a sense of urgency since having her son, said that the organization is studying what role it can play in the 2020 elections in the U.S. “We’re trying to figure out how can we have an impact, not only with the presidential election, but in state governments. We see what’s happening in Alabama right now, which is crazy, archaic, not progressive, not American,” she said, referencing that state’s banning of all abortions.
On the goal set by Time’s Up to achieve 50-50 equality in the workplace in Hollywood by 2020, “The statistics are going the wrong way, we’re not improving,” she said.
The actor, director and producer who is directing her first feature, “24-7,” in which she also stars alongside Kerry Washington, talked about her efforts to surround herself with a female-led team and how she used “Desperate Housewives” as a film school.
“It was a decade of my life, I knew I wasn’t reaching my full potential, I’d go

The 6 Most Compelling Works at the 2019 Whitney Biennial, Explained by Its Curators

Every two years, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City presents a survey of contemporary work aiming to represent the current state of art-making in the U.S. Throughout its nearly century-long history, the Whitney Biennial has been a showcase for significant American artists on the rise. It has also remained a flashpoint for public protest and a stage for larger cultural tensions bubbling beyond the gallery walls.

This history is exemplified by a controversy surrounding a painting of the mutilated body of Emmett Till by Dana Schutz, a white artist, at the 2017 Biennial. Many saw the painting as a tone-deaf exploitation of black suffering, and it sparked demonstrations in the gallery, online discourse about institutional racism and even demands for the painting’s destruction. This year has seen protest, even before the Biennial’s May 17 opening, over the Vice Chair of the Whitney’s ownership of a tear gas manufacturing company.

The co-curators of this year’s Biennial, Rujeko Hockley and Jane Panetta, approached the project of this year’s Biennial with a full awareness of the exhibition’s legacy, recognizing in their curatorial statement that “fundamental to the Whitney’s identity is its openness to dialogue.” By assembling a multifaceted body of work that is forthright in speaking to issues roiling in America today, they have put together an exhibition in the spirit of productive dialogue, which neither shies away from this history nor provokes for provocation’s sake. And, featuring the work of 75 artists and collectives, the 2019 Biennial is one of the Whitney’s most diverse, with a majority of the artists being people of color, and half identifying as women. TIME spoke with Hockley and Panetta to discuss six works in this year’s Biennial that represent the breadth of the exhibition.

Born in Argentina and now based in Miami, Woodgate creates conceptual installations that function as visual allegories for sociopolitical problems. In a glaringly fluorescent room of the gallery, a row of clocks lining the walls is coordinated with an electrical interface on the opposite end of the room. Known as a “master-slave” configuration, this kind of system has been used since the Industrial Revolution to control time in schools and factories as a means of regulating the workday. “The idea is that all the slave clocks take their time from the master clock, which is itself synced to the atomic clock, so that all of these remain the same. But of course, over time they fall out of sync,” says Hockley. Woodgate has also attached sandpaper to the minute hands, which gradually scrapes away the numbers as the hands rotate. What began as a seemingly infallible system inevitably falls to entropy, rendering the clocks useless. “She thinks about the historic relationship with timekeeping and issues of labor and control,” Panetta says.

Suggested Occupation 4, Kyle Thurman

Collection of the Whitney Museum of American ArtKyle Thurman, Suggested Occupation 4, 2016.

Suggested Occupation 4 is one of several figurative works by Kyle Thurman featured in the Biennial. In this series, Thurman takes images from newspaper and other media of archetypal depictions of men, frequently soldiers or athletes. Through his process of reproducing the image as a drawing, Thurman omits the surroundings, leaving the figures isolated in a field of color. The resulting image brings attention to the figures on their own, “highlighting the strangeness around masculinity and men’s bodies being in proximity to each other,” Hockley says. Without their context, previously unseen intimacies are made visible, as well as undercurrents of homoeroticism that go unacknowledged in typically masculine spaces.

Born Athlete American: Laurie Hernandez I, Jeanette Mundt

During the 2016 Olympics in Rio De Janeiro, the New York Times ran a series of photos dissecting the winning movements of the USA Women’s Gymnastics team frame by frame in a single image. Drawn to these photos, Jeanette Mundt, whose work often addresses the scrutiny of women’s bodies, created a series of paintings inspired by the photos. “I think at first she got really interested in the tension between there being such an emphasis on the strength and power of these gymnasts, and then simultaneously on their hair and makeup that needed to be so pristine and feminine,” Panetta says. Here, Laurie Hernandez’s balance beam routine is broken down from start to finish, bringing attention to her physicality to an almost anatomical degree. The technique of layering frames side by side also echoes, as Hockley points out, the 19th-century photographs of Eadweard Muybridge documenting the mechanics of animal motion. In the midst of this technical scrutiny, Mundt still pulls focus to Hernandez’s femininity, adding glitter to her bodysuit on the painting. “You can see they are kind of broken down into pieces already by the nature of the judgment that is passed on them, both the sanctioned judgment of the routine but also this other side of, ‘Do they look the part?’” Hockley says.

Ilustraciones de la Mecánica, Las Nietas De Nonó

Raised in rural Puerto Rico, sisters Lydela and Michel Nonó, who make up the performance duo Las Nietas De Nonó, use a mixture of theatrical performance and visual art in order to address themes of colonialism and race. This photo taken from a performance of their piece, Ilustraciones de la Mecánica, shows one sister as a doctor and the other as a patient who is being prepared for invasive surgery. Performed in silence and using organic materials like grated beets and vegetable leather, the sisters reenact what resembles a hysterectomy procedure. The performance addresses the history of forced sterilization of women in Puerto Rico sanctioned by the U.S. government, which persisted until the 1970s. During the span of the exhibition, they will stage three ticketed performances that will take place in the gallery.

The Villain, John Edmonds

Edmonds, a New York-based photographer, is conscious of the history of representation of black bodies in his medium. In images like The Villain, he subverts assumptions about identity. With a sensitivity to light, color, and tonality that makes his portraits exude a gentle warmth, and informed by the work of earlier photographers like Edward Steichen and Man Ray, Edmonds renders his subjects, many whom are queer, as icons in their own right. Both Hockley and Panetta remember being particularly taken by The Villain the first time they saw it. “It’s such a striking image in its composition, but also thinking about the title, calling something The Villain when it’s a young black man with a bandana over his face, evoking banditry—all of this happening simultaneously we found to be very interesting,” Hockley explained.

Donkeys Crossing the Desert, Lucas Blalock

Lucas Blalock’s surreal digital collage is one of the exhibition’s largest works, inhabiting a billboard facing the museum that is viewable from the galleries. To make his work, Blalock composes real world objects into a still life, which he photographs and then alters through digital manipulation. The results are humorous and uncanny, like the three donkeys seen here, which straddle the line between the real and the artificially rendered. Further toying with the already tenuous boundary between the digital and the real, Blalock created an augmented reality component to the billboard that can be viewed through a smartphone by downloading an app called “Donkey Business.” Some museum-goers may bemoan the integration of smartphone technology into the experience, but there is more to Blalock’s donkeys than sheer novelty. “It’s a really interesting inversion to the way we think about technology and our phones,” says Hockley. “We usually think of them as an impediment to paying attention to our surroundings.” But here, she says, Blalock seems to be saying, “This is how we live now, so let’s use that and let’s speak to it and not pretend it doesn’t exist.”

The Playlist – May 2019

Heads up: Buying via our links may result in us getting a commission. Here’s why.

Music is a little like food and clothes. These are areas where it’s probably worthwhile for one to explore & expand their tastes. The Playlist is assembled each month by Dappered’s very own music correspondent, Tim Johnstone. Tim is a former Virgin Records Label Rep & current award winning Program Director at KRVB, which was awarded the FMQB AAA station of the year markets 50+. You can also catch his work on Fridays when he assembles the Weekend Reset. Got a Spotify account? You’ll find a link to this month’s playlist at the end of the post.

 

Beck – “Saw Lightning”

This was unexpected. Beck took a great deal of time between his last two records but apparently he was already hard at work on something new. And our first taste of it is a smile-maker. This goes back to his early sound ala One Foot In The Grave. Only on this outing he has Pharrell Williams joining him. This is all sorts of fun.

 

Nipsey Hussle – “Victory Lap” featuring Stacy Barthe

What a loss. This man worked to make where he came from a better place for everyone. He was doing good things along with making exciting music. He will be missed.

 

Taron Egerton – “Rocket Man”

Taron Egerton and Giles Martin have done something I didn’t think was possible: they produced a version of Elton John’s classic outer-space ballad in a manner that manages to not only honor the original, but arrange it such that it feels like it could have been on an alternate version of the same album. It is true to the original in ways than some covers could never be. There are familiar instrumental flourishes from other Elton songs included here. Then there’s Egerton’s vocals. They are for real. Talent. Some people get it in heaping helpings. Can’t wait to see the movie.

 

The Flaming Lips – “All For The Life Of The City”

The Flaming Lips are really great at making weird prog-pop-rock. And sometimes they bring the pretty. I’ve always appreciated their “pretty” phases. See Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots. This song (and the album it comes from) was released on Record Store Day in extremely limited quantities and will see a widespread release in July. We will get another concept album, this one called King’s Mouth: Music And Songs. This is very good news. I haven’t been able to see any of the installations the band has done for this project leading up to the album so I’m pretty excited to hear the whole thing.

 

Of Monsters and Men – “Alligator”

Well this was a nice surprise. I’d reached the anxiously tapping my fingers stage in the “where are these guys” game I play when bands I dig have taken more than a couple years in between records. I’m selfish and entitled. I admit it. When this landed on my desk a couple weeks ago I listened three times in a row just to absorb the guitars and the arrangement that takes this Icelandic band in a fresh direction for their upcoming third album. I’m good with this. I’m really good with this.

 

Ingrid Michaelson – “Missing You”

It should come as no surprise that Ingrid’s upcoming album was inspired by her Stranger Things fandom. One look at that video still above says it all. Ingrid spoke at length with Billboard magazine about how she wanted to make an 80’s inspired album. “Missing You” is exactly what you would think of in that context. There’s a little less Ingrid and a little more production than I normally prefer but I get what she’s doing. And by the second listen I was totally ok with it.

 

Gary Clark Jr. – “What About Us”

Blistering licks, pointed lyrics, and a heavy blues vibe make this one of those songs you have to actively pay attention to. This is not background music. This is not comfortable either. And that’s kind of the point.

 

Boston Manor – “Halo”

This is the kind of solid new rock that powers many a gym playlist. Melodic, crunchy, and energetic. These guys are from Blackpool, England and if you are a fan of Bring Me The Horizon, you should dig these guys.

 

Bruce Springsteen – “Hello Sunshine”

Springsteen has said that this upcoming solo record, Western Stars, is a return to an acoustic sound he mined on Nebraska (editor’s note: YAY!!!!) But “Hello Sunshine” is much more Chet Atkins than “Atlantic City.” This is not a bad thing. At all. Pedal Steel guitar and piano, brushed drums and strings provide the lion’s share of the arrangement here all of which provides a lovely base for Bruce’s warm vocals. He has already promised another E-Street Band album for the future which makes this feel like something to savor.

 

Mannequin Pussy – “Drunk II”

I had a hard time finding out much about this Philly band. But that doesn’t really matter. This is one of those songs that hit you in the gut thanks to lead singer and guitarist Marisa Dabice’s impassioned vocals. She is sharing so much here. And delivered among the wonderful cacophony of distortion and guitar fuzz, it is something you can get lost in. This band has just landed on my “must see live” list.

 

Local Natives – “When Am I Gonna Lose You”

I for one am not going to complain about the influence Fleetwood Mac has had on more than a few indie-rock bands I’ve featured here of late. LA’s Local Natives have just released their fourth album and it features echoes of Laurel Canyon as well. Heavy on hooks and harmonies, the band has a reputation for terrific live shows.

 

Rival Sons – “Too Bad”

Straight forward blue-collar rock and roll. This is what I call nod your head and sip your beer rock which is what I would be doing if I saw them live.

 

Calexico & Iron and Wine – “Midnight Sun”

If ever two bands were made to collaborate, it would be these two. Sam Beam and the guys in Calexico follow up their previous ep (2004’s In The Reins) with a new album and a tour later this summer. Calexico’s wide open spaces and Beam’s well worn folk compliment each other in the best possible manner. “Midnight Sun” is a great example of the airy sonic treats coming our way. Absolutely lovely. This will no doubt be the soundtrack for at least one campfire experience this summer.

 

Mark Lanegan Band – “Stitch It Up”

If you’ve been checking out these playlists for any amount of time, you’ve come to realize that I am a Mark Lanegan fan boy. Wait, I guess I’m a Stan. I don’t really hide it. He remains one of my favorite rock vocalists. He is back with a new single from an upcoming album. It is everything I love about his songs: it is propulsive and edgy, it’s raw and gritty, and Lanegan’s vocals bring sex and danger to the mix. This is one glorious din indeed.

 

Future Teens – “Emotional Bachelor”

I know. I’m sharing a bunch of indie-rock this month. But this is another example of a song that brings the feels. Part of it is the duo-vocals from Amy Hoffman and Daniel Radin and the melancholy of the music. But part of it is the sense that you are being let in on a personal experience that maybe you can relate to. These Bostonians bring to mind some really great mid 90’s sounds and, well, nostalgia. Also, I may have played this four times in a row on first listen.

 

THE CLASSIC: Robert Palmer – “Johnny And Mary”

Robert had bigger hits (here, here and here) but this one always stuck with me. I’m sure it has something to do with the fact that MTV played this a great deal when it came out. But I was always drawn to what is basically the story of a relationship dealing with ennui and angst served up in a digital soundscape.

 Johnny’s always running around/Trying to find certainty
He needs all the world to confirm/That he ain’t lonely
Mary counts the walls/Knows he tires easily”

There’s a chance you may be familiar with this song via one of several covers that have come out since Palmer’s original. Another artist who died far too young.

FASHION DEAL UPDATE:

Who is representing Russia at Eurovision 2019? Meet Sergey Lazarev who will be performing Scream

SERGEY Lazarev is returning to Eurovision in the hopes of not just making it to the grand final but also taking home the winner’s title.

Having last represented his country in 2016, who is Sergey, what will he be singing and when will he be performing? Let’s find out…

Eurovision Russia Song Contest 2019 Sergey Lazarev
Sergey Lazarev will be representing Russia in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest

Who is Russia’s 2019 Eurovision entry Sergey Lazarev?

Sergey Lazarev was born in Moscow on April 1, 1983.

From a very young age, the Russian singer became a big fan of artistic gymnastics, which he would stay committed from ages six to nine.

By the time he turned 10 years old, however, Sergey grew a passion for singing and acting, having held his first performance with the Lokteus Children Choir.

His first award came at the age of 14, which followed with the several accolades in children’s song contests, before becoming a member of child group Neposedi.

It was the same group where Yulia Volkova and Lena Katina first met each other before venturing to form their chart-topping girl group t.A.T.u.

Sergey landed his ultimate big break when he became part of the boy band Smash!!, a Russian duo act – alongside Vlad Topalov – in 2000.

Over a million records were sold in Russia with the release of their debut album Freeway, leading the boys to tour the country together for the majority of 2003.

And despite the awards and accolades achieved while being a duo, following the release of their second album 2Nite, Sergey and Vlad parted ways a week later.

It was revealed that the duo simply wanted to focus on their solo careers instead.

He made his solo debut with the album Don’t Be Fake in 2005, selling a whopping 300,000 copies in Russia alone and going on to win Best New Act by MUZ TV.

T0 date, Sergey has released six albums as a solo act and two records with his former group member.

In December, 2015, the singer confirmed that he would take on the duties of representing Russia in the Eurovision Song Contest for the 2016 edition of the annual occurrence.

He went on to reach the third place with his song You Are the Only One, accumulating a total number of 491 points.

And on February 7, 2019, it was announced that Sergey would take on the duties yet again, making his return to the live music competition to do it all over again.

But this time, he’s hoping to win.

What else has Sergey done?

In 2006, Sergey starred in the Russian version of Dancing on Ice.

There, he showed millions of viewers just how much of a great dancer he is by eventually being awarded the runner-up prize during his season on the TV programme.

Then, in 2008, Sergey took part in the reality show Circus of the Stars – but this time, he ended up winning the contest.

In December 2016, the musician announced to his fans that he had fathered a two-year-old son named Nikita.

It was unclear whether Sergey had just found out about the child at the time or whether he simply didn’t want people knowing about his personal life.

Soon after sharing the news, he decided to feature his son in the music video for his song Так красиво in 2017.

What is Russia’s Eurovision 2019 song called?

The song Sergey will perform in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 is called Scream.

The accompanying music video for the track has amassed over 3 million views on YouTube, showing clear signs that fans are liking the record.

Despite its title, Scream is actually full of melancholy.


When is Eurovision 2019?

The Eurovision Song Contest 2019 kicked off its first Semi-Final on Tuesday, May 14 and will crown its winner on Saturday, May 18, 2019.

The second Semi-Final will commence in Tel Aviv on Thursday, May 16.

Meanwhile, the Grand Final will take place on Saturday, May 18.

If you’re not sure how you can catch it on TV, tune in to BBC Four on May 16 to catch Sergey live in action.

BBC One will cover the final from 8pm on May 18 – it will all be broadcast live.

The show will go on until around 11.40pm when the winner is expected to be announced.

Christopher Kane Pre-Fall 2019

Marilyn Monroe captured Christopher Kane’s imagination for pre-fall, in particular images of the late actress shot by John Vachon in the Canadian Rockies when the actress was filming “River of No Return” in 1953. The designer fused this Hollywood glamour girl aesthetic with his love of diamanté sparkle, flashes of lace and latex, and the result was an arty, color packed. It was filled with full skirts or midi-dresses with deep V-necks covered in big, scribbled black dots, and jackets with strings of diamanté snaking across the front. Kane built lace into chain-mail tops or whipped it into long-sleeve blouses and dresses adorned with white pearl fringe. There was latex galore, including a feather-light lime green dress with a high collar and diamanté adornments and wacky shoes with inflatable latex straps. The collection took a surreal turn with octopus-inspired sweaters and skinny dresses with multiple arms and then circled back to Marilyn in the form of a candy pink sweatshirt with thrusting Eighties shoulders, adorned with an image of the actress cuddling a white cat.

FIT Students Make Strong Statements in 2019 Future of Fashion Show

NEW YORK — Protection from both the elements and the news of the day was how one judge described many of the looks that paraded down the runway at the Fashion Institute of Technology’s 2019 Future of Fashion Runway show.
The show, held Thursday night at FIT, showcased some 99 looks from this year’s students graduating from the school’s Fashion Design BFA program.
In addition to featuring knitwear, sportswear, intimate apparel, special occasion and children’s wear on the runway, this year FIT introduced a Street Style and Athletics Capsule Collection that was presented at the end of the show.
The show, professionally produced by Jack Rich, is supported by a $ 2 million, multiyear gift from FIT alumnus Calvin Klein through the Calvin Klein Family Foundation, as well as the company he founded, Calvin Klein Inc. The show was also supported by Brother International Corp., which supplied FIT with more than $ 100,000 worth of sewing, embroidery and electronic cutting machine products.
The presentation was chockablock with craftsmanship and embellishments, including a chunky handknit coat, a hand-printed bomber jacket, a reflective puffer jacket, a “spaceman” sweater, a gray industrial felt dress, denim patchwork handknit coat, a black shearling bomber with parachute straps, a self-embroidered canvas “Overpopulation” coat,

Link Love: The Met Gala 2019

The theme for this year’s Met Gala, which took place this Monday, was camp. W Magazine delves deeper into the meaning of the word.

If you missed the coverage, here’s an overview of what many celebrities wore to the “fashion event of the year.”

Janelle Monáe and Michael Urie were two of my favourites. Did you have a favourite look?

The Best Camp Culture References on the Red Carpet is worth a look too.

The Podcast Playlist – May 2019

Heads up: Buying via our links may result in us getting a commission. Here’s why.

As much as this website encourages people to disconnect, podcasts are one of those things that are an exception to that rule. They’re incredible. And they can make the mundane (doing laundry, riding the bus, ironing or shining shoes) nothing short of extraordinary. Each month our resident podcast connoisseur, Dave I., finds three podcasts worth your time and ears. 

 

Business Wars

Adidas vs Nike. XBox vs Playstation. McDonald’s vs Burger King. These are just some of the iconic business battles covered in the Business Wars podcast, a podcast dedicated to exploring the economic battles between major corporations and/or consumer products. What makes Business Wars a fascinating podcast is each corporate battle is handled over five or six episodes, allowing the show to dive deep in to the the socio-economic challenges each company or commodity faced as it drove to be dominant in a particular industry. Told in a lighthearted and entertaining way, Business Wars will interest those listeners who are curious to know why, for example,  Netflix came to be the dominant streaming service for movies.

 

Blackout

Ever stop to think what would happen if all technology, including household electricity, one day just stopped? Blackout posits this reality in a vivid audio drama, lead by Rami Malek of Bohemian Rhapsody and Mr. Robot fame. The podcast is serialized, so listeners need to start at episode one and make their way through each episode. The good news is episodes average approximately 30 minutes and the show creators do an excellent job of putting the listener right in the center of the cast of characters, making each episode fly by.

 

Heavyweight

Have you ever had a friend who is good at solving problems? A friend who identifies the root of a problem between you and someone else, and then aids in resolution? If so, then the premise of Heavyweight will be familiar to you. Host Jonathan Goldstein (of CBC Wiretap fame) works with friends, family, and strangers to help them overcome conflicts from their past. Be it feeling guilty about never writing a research paper for a college professor who paid you to do so (episode #20 Soraya), or sitting on a jury and feeling guilty about the impact of the verdict on the accused life (episode #18 Sven), or being angry at your Mom for preventing you from playing basketball (episode #11 Christina), Jonathan is there to help the person achieve peace and set things right.

Tyra Banks Comes Out Of Retirement For The 2019 SI Swimsuit Cover

Tyra Banks is not playing with y’all today!

The 45-year-old super model came out of retirement to rock the cover of the 2019 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. And man, does she look better than ever!

 

 

“Since Tyra’s first cover in 1996, she’s transformed herself into nothing less than a mogul, a cultural force and a supernova of inspiration and empowerment,” SI Swimsuit Editor MJ Day told PEOPLE.

“She’s kind of the SwimsuitIssue ethos come to life, everything we know this franchise can be.”

Tyra said that for this issue, she tried to recreate her famous shoot she did back in 1997 during her Bahamas photoshoot.

“We couldn’t find the exact one in the archives — it was the polka dot bikini so we recreated that bikini,” she said. “I recreated it [the shoot] — 25 pounds heavier.”
