(Left) Prints in French fashion are fickle. One of the hallmarks of the style is its

lack of color and patterns aside from a few exceptions, including, “toile.” Translat-
ing to “canvas,” the toile pattern features almost storybook scenes amidst a beige

background. It initially gained popularity back in the 18th century during the age

of realism when people desired art to reflect everyday life but has remained popu-
lar throughout the years. To pay homage to the print, Dior Homme’s 2022/2023 Paris

Fashion Week show included a collection based upon the toile print and offered a
modern alternative. This runway show, especially because behind it sat replicas of
Paris’s iconic monuments, proves the longevity of French fashion that makes it so

alluring. The same Breton shirt Audrey Hepburn once wore is as trendy as the gar-
ments on the Paris Fashion Week runways. Model photo courtesy of Reuters.

Say Oui to French Fashion

(Above) The 2023 Paris Fashion Week began with a viral
collection from the fashion house, Schiaparelli, inspired
by the animals from the epic poem, “Dante’s Inferno.”
Though the designer used only faux fur, the feedback
has been polarizing, to say the least. Some critics,
such as model, Christie Brinkley, called the collection a,
“Huge faux-paw,” a play on the word, faux-pas, claiming
to glorify poaching. Others, including myself, believe
Schiaparelli’s work is a testament to how useless the
fur industry is. By creating hyper-realistic busts of
animals, the designer further justifies faux fur’s place
in the fashion industry. Photo courtesy of Filippo Flor.

Fake Fur Solves the Real Issue

(Above) Following a year of development, the Filipino ice
cream parlor, Sampaguita, finally opened its doors on

Colonial Drive at the beginning of the new year. Sam-
paguita, translating to Arabian Jasmine, is the national

flower of the Philippines, and is used in herbal teas
and remedies. The restaurant is the sister store of The
Greenery Creamery, and with 12 Filipino-inspired flavors,
Sampaguita almost serves as a sweet gateway to Filipino
cuisine. I visited during its soft opening. Even though I
arrived fifteen minutes early, the line already stretched
past two of its neighboring stores and, by the time
Sampaguita opened, past the block. Selflishly, I hope
the demand stays (I could do without the line though).
Sampaguita, in all of its trendiness and retro interior,
provides much needed representation in an area teeming

with other Asian restaurants.

A Land of Flavor Fills Every Bite

When you walk into Buc-ee’s, the brisket hits you first. The smell, at times nauseating, lingers with you
even after leaving. As for the taste, the overall consensus of my family was that it left something to
be desired. The meat was dry, overly seasoned, and not worth the hype. Buc-ee’s also sells, “Beaver
chips” which are kettle cooked potato chips. They have a similar thick texture to Chipotle’s tortilla chips

except smokier, and made up for the brisket.

(Above) Most pep band practices consist of two
groups: the brass section (trumpets, saxaphones, and
trombones) and the rythym section (guitars, pianos,

and drums). Mr. Fray Peralta, along with his two as-
sistants, jump between the two sections to make sure

everything sounds cohesive. Photo by Delaney Bolstein.

Sounding the Trumpets for a New Season

(Left) Situated just outside Atlanta, the Coca Cola Roxy, holding just 3,600 people became a
place filled with teenage girls screaming about exes and heartbreak. The five minute walk to the
theatre from my hotel went past the Atlanta Braves’ Stadium, and the game-day chants greatly
contrasted the giggles from concert goers. And honestly, I felt a little bit judged by the macho
ment with their loaded hot dogs and foaming beer. Photo by Delaney Bolstein.
