Inspired by the French colloquialism chercher midi à quatorze heures* , noon at 2pm is your destination for “pop-culture vitamins” — bite-sized pieces of information about things going on in art, music, literature, fashion, design, culture, travel, etc.
*(Literally "looking for noon at 2 pm," an accusation that someone is overcomplicating things. We think some complications are worthwhile. You'll find them here.)
“You have to make quick decisions. Ultimately, fashion is all about gut anyway — there’s no science to what this should look like or that should look like or how many times you can redraw that or resketch that or redo that catalogue cover. The fact of the matter is, either it grabs you or it doesn’t.”
