These are the stories making headlines in fashion on Monday.

Regina King covers Harper’s Bazaar April 2024
Regina King is the cover star of Harper’s Bazaar‘s April 2024 issue. Photographed by Luis Alberto Rodriguez and styled by Carlos Nazario, she dons an orange Polo Ralph Lauren dress on the cover — in honor of her late son’s favorite color. In the accompanying interview written by Salamishah Tillet, King opens up about dealing with her son’s death, working on her film “Shirley” and exploring characters she can connect with. “If I was told, ‘Do you want to do this again, but it’s going to be exactly the same?’ I would say yeah, just because of how much Ian gives me,” King said of her late son. “But right now, it is me trying to better understand this new relationship with Ian that the universe has chosen. We always talk about spirit: They’re always with us in spirit. But his physical absence is so loud that it’s hard to sometimes tap into that spiritual connection.” {Harper’s Bazaar}

Courrèges’ Nicolas di Felice is Jean Paul Gaultier’s next guest designer
Following Simone Rocha‘s triumphant Haute Couture Spring 2024 collaborative collection, Jean Paul Gaultier has selected Courrèges‘ Nicolas di Felice as the house’s next guest courtier. Di Felice will present his collection during Paris Haute Couture Week, scheduled for June 24-27. “I am grateful to get the chance to work with this legendary couture atelier and I cannot wait to dig into the archives,” Di Felce told WWD. “Even if I work on some more exceptional pieces for my own show, I mostly try to focus on a certain practicality and wearability at Courrèges, so it’s quite exciting for me to let that go for a bit.” {WWD/paywalled} 

Phoebe Philo speaks
Phoebe Philo breaks her silence in an interview with Vanessa Friedman of The New York Times — 10 years since her last formal interview. The designer talked about why she’s so private, her design philosophy, the time spent out of the fashion spotlight, the journey of launching her eponymous label and why she doesn’t create seasonal collections. In response to the criticism about her brand’s high prices, Philo explained, “The intention, really, is that the pieces stick around for a while. They have to be made well, and they have to be considered. And that tends to come at a price point.” {The New York Times/paywalled}
