We caught up with designer Wes Gordon on the hottest day of the summer and trekked to the top floor of his apartment building. You can probably imagine the disastrous impact on our tresses by the time we arrived—our hair resembled the frizzy manes of the models’ from Alexander Wang’s S/S ’12 show. That being said, we were primarily just overheated with excitement to get inside his closet; word on the street was that Gordon's closet was full of 'monoglammed' goodness. Besides, Gordon’s amazing collection of Corgi socks and cable knits made us instantly forget the unbearable heat outside.
If you haven’t heard of Gordon by now, let us be the first to tell you that this is a name to remember. Running with all the cool kids including Cov-alum, Annabelle Dexter-Jones
, Gordon’s come a long way since his days as a Georgia Peach. After making the move across the pond to enroll in the renowned Central Saint Martins in London, Gordon got his groove on in the workrooms of Oscar de la Renta and Tom Ford. It didn’t take long for his namesake line to be picked up by Harrods and Saks, and recently, Bergdorfs and Kirna Zabête. But you’ve got to admire a kid who rocks a customized Croc-banded Cartier and decorates his home with silver fox pillows that his furrier whipped up. Like we said, Weston Marshall Gordon—don’t forget it.
