We’ve got boots (and pearly white sneakers) on the ground at London Fashion Week! Our Global Trend Reporter, Crystal Nicodemus, is back with more exclusive street style snaps from across the pond.
Our Director of Creative Projects and Pop-In Shop curator Olivia Kim offers up daily inspiration, favorite products and things she’s super in love with right now.
“Everyone knows I love a good tie-dye! This line is inspired by a group of friends’ surf trip to Costa Rica. (Also two of my fav things, surfing and Costa Rica!) They hand-wax each piece and it takes two to three hours. That is dedication!”
With Moschino’s top-secret runway show just a few days away, it’s no surprise that creative director Jeremy Scott—fashion’s most irreverent and buzzed-about designer—is already stirring things up. The big news? Hot off Thursday’s catwalk reveal, Moschino will release an exclusive capsule collection, guaranteed to be snapped up by celebrities and street style stars alike. Cooler yet, we’re one of the chosen few to make these instant icons available on September 21.
We invited a handful of our favorite NYC Instagrammers to collaborate with us on our fall trend accessories and shoes campaign. They joined us at an Instameet-style shoot in the Big Apple because, party! We filled the studio with next season’s shoes, handbags, jewelry and hosiery, and let them do what they do best. It was a photo shoot match made in heaven, and we’re in love with the results. It’s a little bit of catalog and little bit of Instagram. We’re calling it Instalog! Here’s our partnership lineup:

It’s National Hispanic Heritage Month and, as with the other heritage months we’ve marked, we’re celebrating the many unique and diverse people who make up the communities we serve. We asked our employees around the country to tell us who inspires and influences them the most as they commemorate this month. Their responses highlight just a few of the many extraordinary people who remind us what this heritage month is all about.
“Gabo inspires me because he is one of history’s most celebrated Latino writers and won a Nobel Prize in Literature. Even though he wrote in Spanish, his work has been translated into dozens of languages.”

How amazing does Spanish actress Laetitia Casta look in this bold noonday sun? She practically radiates grace and glamour. I love vintage, and this fifties-inspired look is beyond beautiful.
The full, patterned skirt is a must-have this fall, and burgundy is going to be the must-wear color, so Laetitia is right on point. Her simple pastel blouse is an understated complement to the statement skirt and heels.
I’ve never been much of a fan of ruffles, but Jessica has converted me. Her cascading one-shouldered blouse is heavenly and her loose, wavy hair is an excellent complement. Jessica’s pairing of an extremely feminine top with tailored menswear trousers is an unexpectedly lovely case of “opposites attract.” The all-black palette keeps this look clean and evokes modern elegance.

No question about it: Margaret Zhang is one of my favorite Fashion Week girls! This blogger (Shine by Three) dresses with a confidence and deftness that belies her years. Still a student, she also manages a successful blog in Australia.
I adore suiting on women, and Margaret’s black and white look is pitch-perfect. I love the contrast, the sleek cut and the relaxed draping of her blouse and blazer. A cool leather backpack is an unexpected but totally clever touch.
Cosmopolitan magazine’s illustrious Fashion Market Editor, Shiona Turini, was gracious enough to let me do a mini photo shoot with her today. It was blazing hot, but she was a trooper! Shiona’s style is pure NYC femme. White is still one of the most popular colors of the year, but I like that Shiona added a little flavor to her look with a sleek snakeskin pencil skirt. But, I have to admit, my real obsession is that gorgeous patchwork Dior purse!
