Emilia Wickstead RTW Fall 2020

No one does ladylike like Emilia Wickstead. And for fall 2020, not only did she fully embrace her identity but kicked things up a notch. Referencing Mexican actress Dolores del Río and her flair for drama, she let her audience into her polished, glamorous world, where the art of dressing up and all things lady are always celebrated.

Models carried the trains hanging off their cowl-draped tops; accessorized their voluminous black lace dresses with matching lace-trimmed hats, and matched their charming, wallpaper-printed cocktail dresses to their clutches and gloves.

In a modern world where dress codes are becoming less relevant and casualwear is king, Wickstead’s approach felt refreshing.

“This whole ladylike vibe has been so true to my brand, so I thought why don’t I just really punch it up this time?” Wickstead said.

But as much as she loves dress-up and drama, Wickstead isn’t one to rest within the confines of her fantasies and forget her end consumer.

That’s why she also looked to the more controlled aesthetic of Del Rio’s husband, the art director Cedric Gibbons, who inspired her to look to the Nineties and sprinkle cleaner, more practical silhouettes into the range. Here were fitted jumpsuits in neutral hues; cropped knits and mannish tailoring, as well as a growing new range of accessories from square totes to flat leather boots that grounded each look.

    ‘The worst is behind us’ — the most attractive risk-reward in years means it is time to buy stocks, Morgan Stanley says

    The worst may be very much ahead when it comes to the virus but Morgan Stanley's chief U.S. equity strategist Mike Wilson says that for stocks and investors the worst was behind us. Wilson said Sunday bear markets end with recessions and that stocks had reached a good entry point for investors. “With the forced liquidation of assets in the past month largely behind us, unprecedented and unbridled monetary and fiscal intervention led by the U.S. and the most attractive valuation we have seen since 2011, we stick to our recent view that the worst is behind us for this cyclical bear market that began two years ago, not last month,” Wilson said in a note.

    Big OPEC+ oil output cuts depend on U.S., others joining: sources

    Saudi Arabia, Russia and allied oil producers will only agree to deep cuts to their crude output at talks this week if the United States and several others join in with curbs to help prop up prices that have been hammered by the coronavirus crisis. Global oil demand has dropped by as much as 30%, or about 30 million barrels per day (bpd), as measures to prevent the virus spreading have slashed demand for jet fuel, gasoline and diesel. On top of sliding demand, Saudi Arabia and Russia have been flooding the market with extra crude after the collapse last month of a three-year-old deal on limiting supplies between OPEC, Russia and their allies, a group known as OPEC+.

    Luckin Coffee’s alleged fraud has some silver linings (and even more bad news too)

    Chinese coffee chain super-brand Luckin Coffee has been in the spotlight the past week after the company revealed in an SEC filing that it has undertaken an internal investigation into an alleged $300 million fraud on the part of its former COO. The stock is down another 15% today as investors continue to comprehend the company's disclosure and its positioning in the competitive Chinese coffee market, where the company displaced Starbucks as the retail and delivery leader in just a few short years. On Monday, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. said a group of lenders is putting 76.3 million of Luckin's American depositary shares up for sale, after an entity controlled by Luckin Chairman Charles Zhengyao Lu defaulted on the terms of a $518 million margin loan.

    Investors should prepare for a coronavirus-induced ‘vicious spiral’ more than twice as bad as the financial crisis, says J.P. Morgan

    There is a widespread view on Wall Street that the stock market hit its lowest level of the bear market last month, and that a combination of an ebbing of the coronavirus in late spring and unprecedented fiscal and monetary stimulus will set the stage for a sharp rebound in corporate profits later this year. What's particularly troubling to Matejka is that the current recession has been triggered by a shock to the consumer — which makes up 70% of GDP in Western economies — as workers around the globe are prevented from earning a living by the closures of nonessential business. This dynamic has led J.P. Morgan economists to predict “only a gradual bottoming out in activity, such as seen after the Great Financial Crisis, and not a V-shaped one that we see, for example, after natural disasters.”

    Gilead Generates Street Skepticism Ahead of Covid-19 Results

    Results from a study of Gilead Sciences Inc.'s experimental Covid-19 medicine are top-of-mind for Wall Street as cases surpass 1.35 million and deaths approach 76,000. With a potential vaccine more than a year away, Gilead's antiviral remdesivir offers one of the nearest-term hopes for a treatment in the pandemic that's sweeping across the globe and putting many countries, including most of the U.S., on lockdown. After the company's valuation surged more than $20 billion from late January to early March, some Wall Street analysts are cautioning there may not be much more room for shares to gain.

    U.S. Stocks Extend Rally; Bonds Decline: Markets Wrap

    The three main American benchmarks all jumped after the S&P 500 Index on Monday closed at its highest since March 13. If the gains are sustained, the S&P 500 may end the day back in a bull market, and likely take the MSCI All-Country World Index with it. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index also advanced, led by travel and leisure shares, after the rate of new infections slowed in France and in Italy, the original epicenter of the continent's outbreak.
