In the “New Releases” section on a flight from New York to Los Angeles, there is a selection of movies written and directed by men, starring men: Brigsby Bear, All Saints, Baby Driver, Overdrive, and even Captain Underpants and Despicable Me. In this male-dominated majority of films, only three films tell the stories of women: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Megan Leavey, and Wonder Woman. Renowned actress and now writer and director, Heather Graham will make a significant contribution to the underrepresented world of female storytelling. Heather’s new film, Half Magic, comes to theaters in February. A lover of books and literature, Heather was inspired to title the movie after one of her favorite children’s books written by author, Edward Eager. Our cover star sat on a couch a few minutes after our photo shoot in the penthouse of Hotel Indigo on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The views of New York City from the penthouse are so spectacular they appear almost unrealistic. “Magic,” Heather explained, “is about being grateful and it’s about supporting other people in what they want to do. It’s kind of like, The Secret. Tell your friends, family, and the universe what you’re grateful for and what you want. If you think about those things enough, they grow.”

Their initial meeting took place at an annual camp staff reunion in North Carolina - Jake had just recently moved to town from Florida to be closer to his sister’s family who were also employed at the camp.

I found it very difficult to approach writing this story for someone so exceedingly self-aware of his position in our current culture that delivers eloquent lectures, holds panel discussions that clearly outline his approach to design, and is able to describe his work in the context of preexisting and current culture. In plain words, Virgil is hyper-conscious of all that he is doing and why it’s effectively met with high praise.

This season’s shoot was inspired by the contentious relationship we have with winter. Winter can be dreary and when faced with subfreezing temperature functionality and form often clash. On the other hand, winter is liberating, our most treasured and weathered outer layers can come out and breath, we can play with layers upon layers of unique cuts and silhouettes. In this shoot we embraced the cold and showcased two distinct looks that demonstrate the capabilities for expression and individuality in this season.

For retailers and consumers alike, sportswear in 2018 is a time of much excitement. Everyone from emerging designers to classic fashion houses is taking what’s happening on the streets and the runways and moving it into stores.
