I asked my colleague living and beauty editor Ella Riley-Adams, who had gone to the Cat Quarantine And Chill T Shirt Telluride Mushroom Festival in Colorado in September 2019, about the intersection of the fashion world and mycology. People attended in funky costumes, some in gothic incarnations of the shroud-y dead-man’s-finger or the fire-engine red, white-dotted fly agaric. One man even carried a mushroom cane topped with a morel! I wanted to transport myself to the festival, pre-COVID-19, and dress up with a portobello hat. And maybe that’s why mushrooms are having a moment, because they can symbolize transportation and transformation, which is in perilously short supply at the moment.
