Style Advice I Learned from My Father
Dads. They get some pretty funny ideas about style. Like that wearing Hawaiian shirts is acceptable year-round. Or that socks with sandals is a totally cool look. But, though they may not be the most obvious style icons in our life, they've certainly passed down their own brand of sartorial wisdom--for better or worse. So, in honor of Father's Day, we asked our favorite fashion and celebrity friends--from Leandra Medine and Olivia Palermo to Wyclef Jean and Richard Chai--to share the most memorable style advice they ever got from their dad.
First Look: Kirna Zabete and Odin for Target
The second installment of Target's new "The Shops at Target" retail format, wherein the retailer taps "off-the-beaten-path" boutiques to create limited collections to sell in a shop-in-shop format, will hit stores pretty soon. We already told you what to expect, like collabs with a couple of our fave NYC boutiques Kirna Zabete and Odin, and now we finally have pictures!
Fashion's Most Stylish Guys Give Mark Zuckerberg an (Almost!) Hoodie-Free Makeover for Facebook's IPO
Mark Zuckerberg is having quite a month. The Father of Facebook just turned 28, bought out Instagram for $1 billion and is now facing the most lucrative point in his career: Going IPO on Friday. We’d offer him a congratulatory “poke” but sadly, that option’s no longer available. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the IPO acronym, it stands for Initial Public Offering-- meaning that the company will finally be open to stock holders where the likes of Wall Street—-and even you!—- can purchase a part of the social media company. But with the estimated $100 billion that’s supposedly coming his way, we’re wondering whether the Harvard dropout will invest in a new wardrobe. Will he finally change out of his usual uniform consisting of dowdy college hoodies, sweat-drenched Adidas shower flip flops, and tattered baggy jeans, into something more uh, dapper? Better yet, the question posed is this: Can all the money in the world transform someone from HTML geek to sartorial chic? Fashionistas can only hope! To give him an extra boost, we’ve enlisted the help of several fashion experts from designers like Carlos Campos, Alan Eckstein from Timo Weiland and Simon Kneen of Banana Republic, to editors from GQ and Esquire, to buyers and the likes to see what kind of advice they’d shed onto Silicon Valley’s hottest star. And regardless of whether he takes our suggestions or not (note to Marky Mark: you really, really should!), happy IPO Day! We’d definitely like to send you a congratulatory poke soon—- this time, live and in-person.
What to Expect from the Shops at Target Round 2: Kirna Zabete, Odin, the Curiosity Shoppe and Patch NYC
Target held a press preview today for the second installment of The Shops at Target, and yet again the retail giant delivers affordable goods with serious street cred. For those of you not in the know yet, the concept is this: Target taps off-the-beaten-path, often high-end boutiques from around the country to collaborate on collections that are sold in a “shop within-a-store” feel. The "shops" have replaced our beloved Go Target designer collaborations--but there's no reason to be sad about it. Following the success of the first round which included collections from The Webster (Miami’s go-to for luxe shopping) and Cos Bar (Aspen’s premier beauty boutique), Target revealed a second round to hit stores September 9th. The biggest buzz surrounds Kirna Zabete, the Soho boutique that has helped foster the careers of heavy hitters like Rick Owens and Proenza thanks to savvy owners Sarah Easley and Beth Buccini.
