Behind the Brand: A.L.C. Founder Andrea Lieberman Wants All Clothes to Feel as Easy as a T-shirt

Interviews Style Video

It’s pretty clear pretty quickly that A.L.C. founder and creative director Andrea Lieberman is what you might call a cool chick. She likes music—mostly hip-hop and reggae. She runs her own business. She digs—and designs—clothes that are confident, relaxed and modern.

We briefly spoke with Andrea about her design principles and the brand that bears her name—well, her initials.

Any working woman not already familiar with the label Tibi is at a serious professional disadvantage. Amy Smilovic’s line of sophisticated, modern styles could be our uniform—and we wouldn’t mind a bit. The designer understands what women need to feel empowered; it dates back to her first splurge on a DKNY power suit.

Hear about her design ethos and what excites her about the next generation of customers in the video below.

Big Facts with Luka Sabbat

Interviews Men's Fashion Music Style

Luka Sabbat has taken the fashion world by storm these past few years as a model, stylist, tastemaker and all-around creative person. So it wasn’t enough for us to simply shoot photos for our men’s trend campaign. We had to sit down with the man and have a proper conversation.

Read our interview to find out his views on the title “influencer” (often used to describe him), what he’s listening to, his emerging brand/not-brand Hot Mess and where he sees himself at 40 years old—which still seems light years away when you’re 19.

First spotted backstage during Milan Fashion Week, M·A·C Girls’ “personality palettes” had us talking and waiting in anticipation. They’re finally here—multiple palettes curated to express your personality. Are you a Rockin’ Rebel? Prissy Princess? Unapologetically Power Hungry?

Each palette comes with eight eyeshadows and a highlighter to create a range of looks, from soft and shimmering to full-on smoky. The formulas are better than ever—and two sets are limited editions. Our editors will tell you which ones they are—and help you pick the palette that fits your style.

From the Editors of Who What Wear: Plus-Size Summer Style

From Our Friends at Who What Wear: 3 Foolproof Summer Styles for Plus-Size Women

Style

At Who What Wear, our editors get major outfit inspiration from fashion girls and celebs, and we love spreading the word about everything from affordable pieces we’re freaking out over to what’s trending now. Keep an eye on our guest posts for street-style looks, editor-approved must-haves, expert how-tos, fashion news and lots more.

Staying cool and put-together in blazing summer temps can be tricky for all of us, no matter our size, shape or style. Our foolproof summer strategy: pick a few go-tos to grab when we have absolutely no idea what to wear. We like to choose pieces that fit a certain set of criteria. First, they have to be effortless. Who wants to fuss with complicated clothing in high humidity? Second, these favorites need to be versatile. They have to have the ability to pair with lots of items already in our closets (including accessories) for endless outfit options. The more mix-and-matchable, the better. Third, these items have to be on trend. They should feel fresh and of-the-moment without trying too hard.

Sound like an impossible trifecta of style? Not to worry, curvy girls, we’ve done the work for you! See our top three plus-size pieces to wear now through early fall.

Our Dinner with Jason Wu—Plus a Sorbet Champagne Cocktail post image

Our Dinner with Jason Wu—Plus a Sorbet Champagne Cocktail

Food & Drink Interviews Style

Jason Wu isn’t exactly the flashy party boy so often associated with the fashion scene. The mild-mannered, impeccably polite and fundamentally sweet designer would be better cast as a gentlemanly dinner companion. Jason is, in fact, known for the beautiful dining experiences he creates for his nearest and dearest. We’ve profiled a few of the past shindigs that he’s thrown to celebrate his sibling label, GREY Jason Wu. And just last week, he hosted a dinner in Seattle. It was as perfectly planned—down to the gorgeous garnishes and centerpieces—as you’d expect from the detail-oriented fashion designer.

See the menu and images, plus read about the details—like his sorbet champagne cocktail—as described by Jason below. Two scoops, please!
