Friends from the Floor: Why You Need to Get to Know St. John Now

“Friends from the Floor” is a series dedicated to sharing the latest product obsessions of our Nordstrom sales crew.

Lots of fashion followers know St. John as an American classic. Worn by Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail and Chrissy Teigen on the Met Gala’s red carpet, the collections are all about understated power suiting and powerfully beautiful knits.

But fashion followers might not know about the brand’s hands-on fabrication in California, its Casablanca-inspired color palettes, or its fresh and youthful appeal.

Felicia Stapleton, however, is fully schooled. Our Seattle St. John specialist just returned from an intensive course in all things knit, crystal-studded and refined, and we got her entire download—as well as a few words straight from Orange County and the St. John headquarters.

Street Style: Zanna Roberts Rassi at Tommy Hilfiger

Zanna Roberts Rassi is one of our favorite style stars here on The Thread. She has impeccable taste and a great attitude. Zanna’s shearling-lined modern moto is the perfect jacket for the season, and I love how she’s paired the rustic texture with high shine sequins. A thick, knit turtleneck and killer boots complete this NY chic look.

Street Report: Dasha Outside Balmain

The Balmain show was absolutely bananas. There were a million people running around and the energy level was at a fever pitch. Luckily, Dasha and I found a tiny space of calm amidst the screaming fans and honking cars. Dasha’s look is modern and sporty, but with a balancing dose of femininity. Her bright leather crop top is amazing, and I like that Dasha added some vibrant color to her look. The sleek lines are simply chic. Love that slouchy clutch, too!

Street Report: Aksinia Outside Blumarine

I can’t get enough of the kitschy T-shirt trend, and this quirky top is amazing! Graphic tops are quite popular currently, especially when worked into a modern luxe look. Aksinia’s leather joggers and stilettos dress up her tee, while a unique clutch with an awesome fringed wrist strap adds even more flavor to her cool-girl style.

Street Report: Ella Outside Richard Nicoll

Welcome back, Ella! This London lady (La Petite Anglaise) is a returning star to The Thread, and it’s easy to see why we feature Ella time and time again: She has an impeccable sense for color and cut. Ella’s magenta look is bright and beautiful—her modern plaid and colorful fur are right on trend for fall. As someone who can’t wear pastels (thanks to the lack of Northwest sun), I am so excited to try out a bold pink for fall!

Street Report: Ella at Marios Schwab

I am always on the lookout for Ella Catliff (La Petite Anglaise) here in London. She has an understated, vintage-inspired aesthetic and is such a sweetheart.

This autumnal palette is perfectly coordinated, and I love her subtle print mixing. Camel coats are another major FW trend, and the fur collar and sleek lines of this piece are très chic. Here’s hoping I run into Ella again tomorrow!

Street Report: Krystal Outside Tory Burch

Krystal is no stranger to the blog world, as her site (this time tomorrow) garners thousands of hits a day. Krystal has great personal style and the cutest haircut ever!

Her bright floral Stella McCartney dress is garden-party perfection. The jacket drape trend is still going strong, and it lends a cool insouciance to any look.

Street Report: Kim at Badgley Mischka

The sleek simplicity of Kim’s look is refreshing to see amongst all the wild style of the bloggers at Lincoln Center. J’adore those structured wide-leg pants and that clean white clutch. And no outfit would be complete without this season’s hero, the motorcycle jacket!
