Everything You Need to See & Do this Fall

If you don't do it for your brain, do it for the 'gram.

For the better part of summer, we've allowed our brains to put on their very own out of office notices, the biggest tasks they've had to tackle being chugging summer water (that'd be rosé) and trying to process our feelings on the latest Instagram update. But as Labor Day approaches, along with swapping out our crop tops and linen for wool culottes and Junya leather jackets, we're also starting to crave a little culture—it's time to eat our intellectual greens, if you will. And with fashion month thisclose, at the very least it'll make for ideal front row icebreaker talk? If you aren't doing it for your brain, at least do it for the 'gram. Here's everything we're screen-shoting and compiling in a nonsensical Notes memo (you know the kind that would make sense to literally no one else?) to see, do, listen and more. 

P.S. Are we missing something? Tweet us: @thecoveteur.

 


SEE

First up? Art n' stuff. Should you find yourself in London around fashion week, we recommend sneaking a little time to hit the Carsten Höller and James Turrell exhibits—the former at Southbank Centre (he's Miuccia Prada's favorite, with his famous slides being her preferred method of transportation around the office) and the latter at Houghton Hall (the artist has converted the manse into a neon must-see). Racking up your frequent flyer miles with a trip to Beijing instead? Try the Pace, which will have retrospectives of works from Chuck Close and Robert Rauschenberg through fall. Meanwhile, we'll be trying to squeeze in a stroll through the MoMa for the last few days of their Yoko Ono retrospective and nabbing tickets for the Hilton Als reading of an unpublished Diane Arbus essay at the New Museum.

LISTEN

 

So what should you be downloading on Apple Music this month? For us, it looks a little something like this.

Beauty Behind the Madness by The Weeknd
Depression Cherry by Beach House
M3LL155X by FKA Twigs
Badlands by Halsey
"Pretty Pimpin" by Kurt Vile
Honeymoon by Lana Del Rey (out September 18th)
Roses by Coeur de Pirate

Oh. Also: Kanye just announced that he'll be playing his 808s and Heartbreaks album in its entirety for one night only at the Hollywood Bowl at the end of September, so there's that. 

 

WATCH

Run, don't walk. This is not a drill: Judd Apatow's Undeclared, The Wolf of Wall Street, Sleepless in Seattle and High Fidelity will all be disappearing from Netflix this very month. That said, there'll be a brand-spanking-new season ofPortlandia, as well as Up in the Air, Moonrise Kingdom, Iris and more popping up in their place. 

We're also on the heels of the opening of the Venice Film Festival and TIFF, better known as ground zero for next year's Oscar pool.
