Each design sent down a runway has significance to its designer. Even so, some looks are more personal than others. In January, when Virgil Abloh paid tribute to his Ghanian roots in Louis Vuitton’s fall/winter 2021 men’s collection, he introduced a distinctive kente cloth into the house’s repertoire of prints. Model Levi Mankessi wore a look with the Vuitton monogram woven into its stripes and bands the fabric. Draped over Mankessi’s hooded sweatshirt bearing the words tourist vs. purist and his logo’d jeans, it made for a meaningful statement, one that merged the symbols of Abloh’s past and present. “My personal story is in that collection,” Abloh shared with Vogue via Zoom. “My parents are looking at these Vuitton shows. They’re reading the BBC News articles about my use of kente cloth, [but] I’m looking at a photo of my grandmother in full kente that inspired the look.”
Indeed, for all the impressive cultural literacy that underpins Gorman’s style choices, at the end of the day, it’s really the simple yet palpable sense of joy she finds in clothing that radiates strongest. Whether the joyous sunburst of canary yellow of her coat at the inauguration, the opalescent sparkle of a Chanel jacket in an Instagram post by her stylist, or the regal, Kente cloth-inspired Louis Vuitton dress she wears on the cover of Vogue, Gorman understands and embodies the chameleonic possibilities of clothes to shape who we are and how we present ourselves to the world. It’s this balance of creativity, intellect, and good old-fashioned fun that makes Gorman a new kind of American style icon.
With Gorman’s remarkable attention to sartorial detail, then, it came as little surprise to see her stake her claim as a style star in the months following. Appearing at the Super Bowl in February to recite her poem “Chorus of the Captains”—one that saw her become the first poet ever to perform in the sporting event’s seven-decade history—Gorman opted for a shiny sky blue coat with crystal embellishments by Moschino, this time topped off by a headband crafted from shimmering pearls. And even while posting to Instagram, Gorman has offered plenty of fashion inspiration: most memorably, perhaps, with a dramatic Alexander McQueen gown she wore for a fitting with her stylist Jason Bolden. “Queen tings,” Bolden captioned the post; “dressed up for whattttt,” Gorman cheekily replied.
