Now the mini is back is it time I finally embraced black tights? | Jess Cartner-Morley
I’ve always been a fan of going bare-legged, cold weather be damned, but it seems black tights are having a renaissanceBlack tights are fashion Marmite. If you love them, you look forward to the first brisk September or October day when it is acceptable to stop pretending that “late summer” exists on these shores and layer a thick pair of tights under your dress. You have strong views on optimum denier count and can debate the relative merits of Falke and Wolford at length. You could happily give a Ted talk on the whether the Edie Sedgwick modern jazz vibe of a matte pair is more chic than the lustre of a velvet or satin finish.The other camp – my camp – would sooner brave horizontal snow and sleet bare-legged than be seen dead in a pair. In fashion, not wearing tights has long been a badge of honour. Around the time that tottering around in high heels all day stopped signalling elegance and began to make you look a bit deranged, going bare-legged took over as the style set’s equivalent of a club tie. Going bare-legged through winter requires a high tolerance for windchill and, depending on your skin colour, a time-consuming fake-tan habit. Still, the bare-legged brigade eschew tights because we think it looks better.I suppose this is all an elaborate justification for the fact that I stopped wearing tights because no one else on the front row was wearing them and they felt kind of scruffy. Going bare-legged made me feel like a contender. Style is a way of insisting on something, as Susan Sontag said, and black tights felt like giving up, like throwing in the towel.In the noughties, when Prada was all about a knee-length skirt, and through the 2010s, when the midi skirt ruled, going bare-legged didn’t mean being cold. I could wear ankle boots with socks, a long-ish skirt and a coat, and I was technically bare-legged but only a tiny bit of flesh was exposed. Continue reading...

The fightback starts now! Here’s how the BBC can survive the Tory assault
Its flagship shows are looking shaky, its branding is blurred and its payroll is bloated. But as Nadine Dorries and Boris Johnson close in on the BBC, there are ways the Corporation can emerge from this crisis stronger and freerDebates on the future of the broadcaster that hits its 100th birthday this year always become Hamlet-like: BBC or not BBC? With centenary celebrations muted this week by the culture secretary, Nadine Dorries, freezing the licence fee for two years and threatening to axe it completely by the next BBC royal charter in 2028, the familiar standoff resumes between those who argue for no state-dominant broadcaster (Conservative politicians and media) and those who advocate no change (broadcasting unions, liberal columnists).Realistically, though, the BBC’s future lies in a third way the Prince of Denmark didn’t have – being very different. Trying to “save the licence fee” or “leave the BBC alone” (though understandable slogans, given its long and vast contribution to national culture and education) is like aiming for immortality; regardless of strategy, time will beat you. Licence fee purchases have fallen by around a million in the last year. With Dorries effectively promising to end prosecution of non-payers, this trend will only accelerate, and digital consumption makes compliance harder to police. Continue reading...

The HIV epidemic wasn’t curbed by data alone – and Covid won’t be either | João Florêncio
In the 1980s we learned that public health messaging divorced from people’s values simply doesn’t work Since the beginning of the pandemic, communication from the government, epidemiologists and health statisticians appears to rely on the belief that if people are shown enough graphs, enough models, enough statistics, enough information, they will all act rationally and do the right thing. Even when that is deeply at odds with the way people live: closing oneself at home, potentially alone, ceasing all intimate contact with people outside, locking down.This was surprisingly successful in 2020, as a response to a sudden disaster, but it isn’t a realistic long-term strategy. The cultural, social and political history of the HIV pandemic taught us that this epidemiological approach of trying to protect a population chiefly by focusing on ideal individual behavioural guidelines doesn’t work.João Florêncio is senior lecturer in history of modern and contemporary art and visual culture at the University of Exeter Continue reading...

Klein review – composer explodes convention into brilliant fragments
The White Hotel, SalfordStraddling classical music and a clubby experimental sound, the Londoner’s expertly weird performance feels like falling through a trapdoorAcross just five years of recorded output, south London outsider-composer Klein has journeyed from oblique, downer electronica redolent of Burial to a unique and singular warping of classical tropes. Befitting an artist who has released music on both cutting-edge dance labels and legacy European classical imprints, ahead of a milestone show at London’s Barbican next week Klein is performing at a club space in a Salford industrial estate.The first sounds you hear – under pulverising strobe lights – is the clattering club rhythms of Klein’s work performed by a lone percussionist hitting a large kick drum at the side of the stage. Reflecting Klein’s direction of travel, sounds that were once sampled are now far more likely to be organic; last year’s critically acclaimed album Harmattan had been composed for orchestra before the pandemic intervened.Klein is at Barbican, London, on 30 January.
