In the wake of days and even weeks of physical distancing to stem the spread of Covid-19, it is not always easy to find ideas for activities to pass the time. Fortunately, the internet has many suggestions as to how to while away hours of quarantine, including some from major players in fashion. Here's a roundup of what is on offer.
A model's book club
American top model Kaia Gerber has launched her own online book club to help people who feel isolated to connect with the outside world via social networks. The principle of the club is quite simple: the young woman announces a title, and the following week, she organises a real-time exchange on Instagram s either solo or accompanied by a guest – to discuss the work in question. The first book on Ms. Gerber's list is Normal People by Sally Rooney.
Fashion players and icons, including Billy Porter, Simon Porte Jacquemus and Jennifer Lopez, are increasingly issuing challenges to their followers to stimulate their creativity and help them to get more out of this period of social distancing. Porter has notably called on his fans to recreate the outfit that he wore for the 2019 Met Gala, while Porte Jacquemus asked his following to create a face from materials they could find in their homes. In both cases, internet users responded enthusiastically with surprising results.
