Drumroll, please! Madewell, beloved for making dressing down look really darn good, is now at with Nordstrom. You’ll find their casual cool on our site as of today, and by March 6, we’ll be rolling into selected stores with the line as well. We spoke to designer Somsack Sikhounmuong about the Madewell look and how to get it.
Generally speaking, we need no excuse to daydream about Puerto Rico. The beaches…the food…the rich history and culture. But now that we can add the new Nordstrom to that list of Puerto Rico goodness, well, let’s just say the Caribbean archipelago is front and center.
To celebrate this exciting launch, we had Issa tell us all about Morocco, the source of inspiration for many of these looks. We even got her to share some of her own vacation images—and a few of her inside travel tips.
The star of all-star jam “FourFiveSeconds” is definitely Rihanna, singing hard and being a badass and crying, performing with Sir Paul McCartney and the current King of Pop, Kanye West. Not the first time McCartney has collaborated with a K.o.P, BTW.
But from a style POV? The star is Rihanna’s jean jacket and leather-belt-tied-like-a-tie combo. Kanye West did the styling, selecting vintage Sean Jean denim. Which means for all you retro trend watchers out there, it’s time dig up your late-’90s/turn-of-the-millennium hip-hop gear like Fubu and Karl Kani.
Okay, so depending what part of the world you’re in, spring either feels like a next-door neighbor or a very, very distant relation. Regardless of whether the weather is on the sunny side, our new arrivals certainly are.
Design duo Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters could’ve played it straight when they left the School of the Art Institute of Chicago to launch their line in 2008. “Gabier and Peters” has a nice ring to it, but give the original Johnny Mathis version of “Wild is the Wind” a listen. It’s got a certain ring, too—one that works very well as an abstracted, somewhat undercover reference point for the beautifully moody and hauntingly romantic line that we’re psyched to welcome to Nordstrom the Grove,Nordstrom San Francisco Centre, and Nordstrom.com this month.
To celebrate the launch, we talked to Shane Gabier about the music, climate, and concepts of their current Spring collection.
Kanye wears him, the press adores him, and now, we carry him online. Haider Ackermann is a man of the world—Columbia, Ethiopia, Chad, Algeria, France and the Netherlands have all been home—and his clothes carry a sort of global consensus and quiet urgency.
Easy. No question. Can they make these harder, please?
The brand newfringe-front boots from Huntertake the fever for vintage-riffing, decorative edging out in the elements where, we have to assume, they help make the most of stomping in puddles and powering through urban snow drifts. Pair them with a ’20s frock or a pair of skinnies—either way, you’re vibing with Atlantic City showbiz hopefuls and aristocratic ice queens, and showing the weather who’s boss.
Studies show shopping is at least twelve times more fun en masse. Our Try This On series is all about the camaraderie of sartorial group projects—and this special Wellness Realness episode makes it all about looking good and feeling good, too.
The question of balancing both life/work and life/workout is really a matter of form vs. function, and where modern-day gym gear is concerned, the answer is definitely not one or the other but both. Innovations in textile technology as well as street and runway sportif trends yield a wide open door for dressing one way, all day—give or take a jumpsuit here and a racer-back tank there.
Here, we step into the Personal Styling dressing rooms at the Seattle flagship with a supremely flexible fitness guru to show you how she manages a 24/7 mix of Zella and ready-to-wear basics.
’Twas the season to indulge, friends, but now ’tis the season to atone. Throughout the month of January, we’ll be bringing you all sorts of Wellness Realness—information and inspiration you can use to get out of lax mode and into good-for-you mode. Or at least stop eating cookies for lunch and skipping your morning run.
In the eight cities listed here as well as online, we’re blowing out the best exercise looks for men, women and girls as Zone Zella celebrates strength, wellness, courage, power and style throughout the month of January.
Also this month: free yoga inside our Zella offerings. Don’t miss the scoop on that at the end of this post. But first: as part of the Seattle kickoff to this month-long event, local Zella PRO and yoga teacher Vanessa Garibaldi gave us the inside track on her three favorite Zella pieces before chatting with us about her philosophy, and then leading a crew through a special TGIF set of moves.
