This Friday afternoon’s eccentric editorial is brought to you by StreetWinker from the minds at Ted Baker London. Take a tour through this August/Winter ’13 digital campaign with your consummate (and cheeky) host Redge Blaker.
We’re crazy for these quirked-out GIFs (a.k.a. “Winks“) and the street-style-inspired section, “Teditorial.”
And we have to give a nod to the series of videos in “Baker’s Dozen.” Watch Redge’s trick to tying a perfect bow-tie knot every time—one of the most confounding dressing skills to learn. No doubt it will come in handy next time you happen on a man in a helpless state of dishabille.
As The Thread archives thousands of photos taken at Paris Fashion Week, one thing we’re seeing over and over is the Valentino ‘Rockstud’ collection. From handbags to shoes, the ‘Rockstud’ made a lasting impression on the sidelines of runway shows and on the streets of Paris.
Rebecca Minkoff was looking for the next big thing in creative talent–a designer, a model and a photographer to all bring a Nordstrom-exclusive tee and tote to life in a national campaign and then to walk the runways at Fashion Week. Announcing the winners: designer Anjni Raol of California, photographer Anna Cone of New York and model Sarah Cousins of North Carolina.
With Raol’s winning t-shirt and tote design as the centerpiece, photographer Cone and model Cousins took the spotlight as part of the collaboration’s national campaign. Opting for a street-style look, Cone photographed Cousins in the heart of downtown New York City – the quintessential Rebecca Minkoff backdrop.

Krista, one of our web production designers, gave us a serious case of dress-envy with her nearly-ethereal, mixed media maxi dress. In a stroke of style genius, she added a thick, woven-leather belt and brown wedge sandals—making a classic 1970s look refreshingly modern.
Krista says, “Being fairly short, this dress style helps to elongate my body—especially when paired with some high wedges. To offset florals, I like to pair many of my dresses with a leather jacket. This gives my outfit just the right amount of edge!”
