Iverson Layup T-Shirt
In case that wasn’t enough on its own, it’s all finished off with a tiny pair of tinted circular sunglasses—the Iverson Layup T-Shirt also I will do this size of multivitamins themselves—and a pair of black and white brogues that give me major Charlie Chaplin vibes. Her hair is done up in a braid crown like the former prime minister of Ukraine, Yulia Tymoshenko, and she arrives at a pregnant friend’s door with a cigarette in her mouth. I can imagine the writer’s room coming up with Samantha’s grown-up look. “She’s a weird writer. What do writers wear? Let’s put her in a big ol’ three-piece suit and give her a cigarette.”

While Samantha looks like she’s cosplaying T.S. Eliot twilight-zoned into suburbia, it is bizarrely entertaining. I’d go as far as to say even a little bit chic. When I posted the Iverson Layup T-Shirt also I will do this image to Instagram, it sparked a bevy of responses regarding Samantha’s look. The archive researcher @jordenautumn_ commented that it was giving her “’90s cyberpunk giving a little Wales Bonner and a little JPG.” She isn’t wrong. It is reminiscent of the Fall 2002 Jean Paul Gaultier show, with the androgynous Omahyra Mota strutting down the runway in a men’s suit with a cigarette hanging from her mouth. There is also a bit of John Galliano for Dior in Spring 2008, when women walked the runway in three-piece suits (albeit Galliano’s versions were a bit more slinky and sexy). Today, Samantha’s suit is reminiscent of not only that slouchy cool of Wales Bonner, but also the artful bagginess of fellow London-based label Eftychia and the reworked traditional suiting by Ella Boucht. In fact, it seems like something belle of the street Bella Hadid could step out in: Back in March 2020, she walked out in Paris wearing a three-piece suit by Dilara Findikoglu, sans a jacket.
