Newtown Native’s Fashion Newsletter is a Massive Hit in the Industry, With Several Celebrities on the Mailing List
A Bucks County fashion enthusiast is running one of the industry’s most popular newsletters, with a slew of celebrities subscribing to the list. Lauren Cochrane wrote about the newsletter’s author in The Guardian.
Erin Wylie, a Newtown native and design talent scout for Apple, started the fashion newsletter Blackbird Spyplane with culture journalist Jonah Weiner in early 2020. Taking influence from modern internet aesthetics and older fashion magazines, the duo have built their letter up to a high amount of subscribers, making them one of the biggest in the fashion industry.
Their newsletter also seems to be causing changes in the ever-changing industry. Posts about old and oddball fashion trends have caused them to become real trends. Along with this, the newsletter is read by a variety of famous figures, including Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, John Mayer, Lorde, and Mark Ruffalo.
“Last November we did a thing about silver sneakers, the running Y2K era kind of aesthetic,” Weiner said. “There was something that felt almost gross to put in the newsletter … Now one of the hottest sneakers out is the Asics Gel Kayano, which is exactly that kind of shoe.”
