Inez Feltscher Stepman joined Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss the devolution of fashion and its relationship to political populism. Feltscher gave her opinion on hot topics ranging from Kanye West's deal to sell Yeezy at Gap and its impact on Gen Z style, to whether a Joe Biden presidency would affect fashion.

Feltscher argued that the new athleisure trend, which has popularized dressing in more casual, loose-fitting clothing, could be the result of an effort to hide a women's body as seen in the "Billie Eilish style" of big jackets, Bermuda shorts, and sneakers.

They also touch on topics like: Is normcore high fashion? Should you buy Gucci slides? Does the pandemic's acceleration of the work-from-home revolution mean athleisure is here to stay?
