New York Fashion Week 2015

Every major undertaking is worth a major postmortem examination, right?

WWD, the fashion industry’s must-read megajournal, conducted one the day after New York Fashion Week came to a close, and our very own fashion director called out his favorite runway trends and nodded at the designers who really nailed it. We’re sharing the Jeffrey Kalinsky scoop here because he’s always spot-on (and because you have to be a WWD subscriber to read the whole thing).

Photographer Olivia Locher’s Summer Reading List | Pop-In@Nordstrom Welcomes Warby Parker

Everyone knows all the cool girls are really bookworms—what they don’t know is what all the cool bookworms are reading. You will now though; just follow along with this series as Pop-In@Nordstrom Welcomes Warby Parker helps us celebrate the literary life well lived.

There are photographers who document the world, and there are photographers who create worlds to document. New York-based lens pro Olivia Locher has a foot on both planets—and what a foot it is. (Her super charming DIY shoes caught our eye at the Jason Wu show at fall fashion week in New York.) At work for entities such as W magazine, she captures the drama and excitement of the backstage build-up at the shows, and while at work unraveling her own narratives and concepts, she stages series such as “I Fought the Law,” in which her subjects enact the fine art of breaking totally inane American rules from coast to coast. Exhibit A: “In Texas it is illegal for children to have unusual haircuts.” Huh? Yeah.

Here she is repping some Warby Parker sunnies, and here she is schooling us on texts of conceptual photography and ’70s ennui.

Nordstrom Fashion Director Jeffrey Kalinsky Celebrates Big in New York City

Honey Dijon

Next time you want to throw the party to end all parties, consider making it disco-themed and getting the savior of New York nightlife Ladyfag to host.

That’s how Nordstrom Fashion Director Jeffrey Kalinksy celebrated 25 years of his Jeffrey boutiques, a milestone that occurred recently during New York Fashion Week: Men’s.

The party went down at Jeffrey’s Chelsea boutique; the scene centered around queen diva Ladyfag and Honey Dijon, who deejayed while models and fashion insiders danced to the sounds of disco and the clinking of Clicquot-filled flutes. There was much voguing and merrymaking.

Jeffrey was kind enough to do a quick Q&A the morning after. Read it here and check out our party pics below–and read The New York Times’ review as well.
