Behind the colorful, detailed menswear of London brand Dent de Man are the stories of designer Alexis Temomanin. We’re excited to be carrying exclusive-to-Nordstrom styles from Dent de Man in Pop-In@Nordstrom de Soleil—our sun/swim shop curated by Olivia Kim—and spoke to Temomanin about his formative Ivory Coast childhood, entrée into the fashion world and being haunted by blue patterns.

Father’s Day is perfectly timed. The holiday comes at the onset of summer, when the days are longer, barbecues are stoked and microbreweries release refreshing new ales. So what to get the guy who pitched our first tent in the backyard, built a campfire on the beach, mastered grilling salmon and shot hoops in the glow of the porch light? (He’s pretty much the best.)
We’ve got you covered with a curated list of gifts that will encourage the dad in your life to soak up the sun in style.

Although tragedy tinged the 70th annual Tony Awards, nominees, guests and presenters showed undaunted joy and unity during the night’s celebration of art and community, dedicated to the victims in Orlando. Host James Corden opened the show with a musical number that referenced theater’s appeal to kids “of every color, class and race and face and shape and size. To boys and girls and transgenders, too. To every Broadway would-be.”

Hamilton won 11 Tony Awards in an expected rout. The musical, based on founding father Alexander Hamilton’s contributions in establishing American democratic politics, was a deserving recipient of praise from presenters Barack and Michelle Obama, Common and Barbra Streisand, who returned to the Tony stage for the first time since 1970. These distinguished appearances and the content of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s sweepingly inventive musical were reminders of the importance of art in American culture, theater’s significance to the LGBT community and the heritage of a country experienced in strife but built on the inclusiveness of its people.

Talk about getting the icing and the cake: SPACE favorite Mira Mikati designed an exclusive pre-fall collection just for us, and she’s traveling all the way from London to tell us about it, and to share her ultra-fun outlook on style and life.

Central to Mira’s collection, and her entire brand, is the idea that dressing should be fun—and that wearing fun, playful clothes can really change your life. When you get a chance to chat with her (as we did during Paris Fashion Week, for instance, and in this feature last year), she talks about how her pieces are real conversation starters, and smile-makers.
But now you don’t have to take our word for it …

Last time we chatted with American-born Lady Dawn Russell (yes, she’s married to an English lord, but too down to earth to be fussy about titles), she told us all about her road to health and recovery and how that led to inventing the effervescent nutrient-packed 8G Essential Greens Booster. Now, she’s giving us a peek into life at the family Estate, Woburn Abbey, her expert travel and skincare tips plus how to make any brownie recipe better for you.
Woburn Abbey & Estate
People Magazine profiled you earlier this year and said your life and visits at Woburn are like a real-life Downton Abbey. What do you think about that?
It’s a family at the end of the day, just like any other family. So yes, there is formality and titles and a beautiful home, but there are also the same dynamics and daily routines of any other family.
What’s the biggest unexpected adjustment you had to make transitioning from living in the states to living in England?
I quickly learned that being punctual is imperative, the UK is the most punctual country and one always has to be on time. I also learned that the more you pick on someone, the closer you are as friends. And to never kiss the family butler. The first time I met Roger (the family butler) I gave him a kiss goodbye and quickly learned to tone down my American affections.

Back in the ’90s, Malia Mills hated that shopping for swimwear was a scary experience for so many women. Since then she’s been slaying the fashion game with a mission to get past the stress zone and into the #hellyes zone.
With Malia Mills’ swim designs currently featured in Pop-In@Nordstrom de Soleil—our sun/swim shop curated by Olivia Kim—we caught up with the boss herself to talk about body image in the era of the Lenny Letter, intense ruffles and the importance of getting out there and having a margarita.
