OK Taps Richard Spencer... Jack Griffin's View... Fashion Intellectuals...

Mark Pasetsky's reign at OK has ended. Also, Jack Griffin spoke at the American Magazine Conference, and Maria Cornejo talked at a New Yorker panel.

FASHION INTELLECTUALS: New Yorker writer Judith Thurman touched on the more cerebral side of fashion on Saturday afternoon during a panel at the magazine’s annual three-day festival, where she read from Yeats to explain the origins of the phrase Rag & Bone and asked Naeem Khan to deconstruct the semiotics of a dress. Khan and Rag & Bone founders David Neville and Marcus Wainwright shared the stage with Maria Cornejo and Phillip Lim, who had a more literal take on the intersection of fashion and literature. “The worst thing to do is to put your heart and soul into something and find it on the sale rack. That’s tragedy,” Lim said. Cornejo won the intellectuals in the house over after an audience member asked the panel if they’d rather dress Michelle Obama or Carla Bruni-Sarkozy.“I think Michelle Obama any day,” Cornejo said. “I’ve met Carla Bruni, and there’s not much up there.”
