Street Style: Julia at Fendi

Julia may be young, but she knows how to dress. Her outfit for the Fendi show is so chic and crisp. Shirting is having a major moment and I love the simple contrast of white shirt and black vest. A sleeveless, belted blazer vest is an unexpected, but very cool addition. To brighten up the minimalist palette, a bold, red lip is a classic choice.

Street Style: Kerry at Roksanda

Another day of Fashion Week, another killer outfit from Kerry Pieri! A nautical striped turtleneck and light leather pencil skirt look fresh and springy. Kerry’s chambray denim trench is a great update on a classic cut and the perfect layer for the crazy London weather. Snakeskin footwear is everywhere, and these platform booties add some refined edge to this casual-cute look.

Street Style: Natalie Suarez at Tommy Hilfiger

Blogger powerhouse Natalie Suarez (Natalie Off Duty) is so good at adapting current trends to fit her personal style. Today’s ’70s-inspired look hits all the right notes for the season: suede jacket, fur scarf, modern bells and denim. Natalie looks like she walked straight off Led Zeppelin’s tour bus, which is just about the highest praise I can give!

Nicky Hilton Gives Us Her 5 Must Haves

Hero

What is it like growing up in the fashion industry? Ask Nicky Hilton. A lifetime of Fashion Week front rows, strutting the catwalk and red carpets and eventually designing her own collections made Hilton a connoisseur of clothing. Having never employed a stylist, Hilton climbed her way up the best-dressed lists all on her own, trusting her own sartorial moxie to get her there. Now Hilton passes her secrets along in the form of a new book called 365 Style, which details her special formula for developing a signature style.

Hilton visited our Bellevue Square store on November 14 to give fans the inside scoop on her new book and answer a few of our burning questions. Here she gives us a crash course in personal style, including her five must-have items of the moment.

CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund treasure&bond Boutique Recap

New York’s fashion crowd headed to our treasure&bond store in SoHo for an intimate evening to celebrate the 10 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists. This special boutique presentation toasted the next generation of American fashion, which included:

Andrea Lieberman, A.L.C.
Greg Armas, Assembly New York
Sofia Sizzi, Giulietta
Justin Salguero, Daniel Silberman & Alina Silberman, Illesteva
Jennifer Fisher, Jennifer Fisher Jewelry
Jennifer Meyer Maguire, Jennifer Meyer
Max Osterweis & Erin Beatty, Suno
Tabitha Simmons, Tabitha Simmons
Greg Chait, The Elder Statesman (winner)

Starting Monday, you’ll be able to snag items from these very talented finalists for the first time when you visit one of our 6 pop-up shops, opening in Nordstrom stores in Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles (The Grove), Chicago and Dallas (Northpark), as well as in New York’s  treasure&bond store.

Jeffrey Kalinsky (center), Nordstrom’s EVP of Designer, is part of the Fund’s judging committee and shared why he’s proud to be involved. “Nordstrom has been a sponsor of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund for seven years. We were one of the first big stores to get involved with the fund, kind of early on. I’m really proud to be part of a store that felt it was very important to support emerging creativity in the United States.”

Steven Kolb, the CFDA’s Chief Executive Officer, discussed the impact of our partnership and how it furthers the the Fund’s goals. “Fashion Fund is really an industry movement to further the success of American fashion. Particularly with Nordstrom, Jeffrey has such a great insight into talent and what sells. He has brought this experience to his work on the committee,” said Kolb, who is pictured right with Jeffrey.

“What we love especially is the evolution of Nordstrom’s relationship with the Fashion Fund. This pop-up shop now brings another type of experience and lessons learned on dealing with delivery, buyers and merchandising. It’s really bringing the skill and knowledge that Nordstrom has and sharing it with people who need it and want it.”

The Fashion Fund was established to help emerging American design talent develop their business in the areas of marketing, public relations, production and sales as well as offer a tailored mentorship from industry luminaries.

“You learn so much from all the judges. To be judged by such great, established industry giants is invaluable,” said Tabitha Simmons (pictured left), who cited Jeffrey as the one who pushed her the most during this experience. “Jeffrey was so brilliant, and he really gave me his honest opinion about my brand and business.”

Jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer Maguire (wife to actor Tobey Maguire, pictured right) is being mentored by Diane von Furstenberg. “The other nine designers were some of the nicest and talented people I have ever met in my life. Being able to work with them and watch their process was truly inspiring.”

“Getting to know people that you normally wouldn’t get the chance to know was a highlight of this experience,” added accessories designer Jennifer Fisher, pictured above, who said she counts Andrea Lieberman of A.L.C. and Jennifer Meyer as her new close friends. “The process was like a sorority rush. We had to go through everything together, and then you come out and it’s like a big reunion. I feel like I am seeing everyone from camp.”

Treasure&Bond: SoHo’s Newest Resident


We want to send our congratulations and best wishes to everyone at treasure&bond (our newest independently operated addition) in New York City after a fantastic grand opening last Friday and a great article in the New York Times. We also wanted to catch up with Store Manager Paige Boggs for an insider’s glimpse and to find out about her favorite items in the new store.

Where did you source the merchandise for treasure&bond, and what were you looking for?
All over the world! I looked for things that stood out to me. Everything we chose has a story—including a bit of sleuthing to track down some great items we saw in magazines and blogs. We wanted to create a selection that appealed to a variety of tastes, interests and budgets to give customers a sense that they were shopping a carefully curated mix in a fantastic place that feels like a boutique-meets-bazaar.

Which charities are the proceeds going to?
We have a total of eight for our first year: The New York Public Library Programs for Children and Young Adults and NYC’s Young Men’s Initiative for our first quarter. Then the Coalition for the Homeless: Camp Homeward Bound Sleep-Away Camp and After School Services and the Children’s Health Fund. After that are Friends of the High Line’s Family and Education Programs and the Edible Schoolyard NYC for February through April of 2012. And we finish our first year with Pediatric Cancer Care, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and the Association to Benefit Children (ABC).

What’s it like being the new kid on the block?
The people in this neighborhood are amazing. I think they’re happy to see something open in this location—it’s been almost 18 years since there was a business here.

Any favorite discoveries in the area?
Let’s just say I know where every hardware store in SoHo is.

What are your five favorite things in store?
Any necklace by Akong London. The briefcases by Seventy Eight Percent in Hong Kong, a tennis shoe coloring book, the Eco Can, and the Further soap products.

What excites you the most about treasure&bond?
I guess the short answer is seeing what is possible for the store…on so many levels—from the partnerships and the product, to the experiences we can craft for customers. I’m excited to push our boundaries and see how much we can learn.

Visit treasure&bond in person at 350 West Broadway or online for more information. Connect with treasure&bond on Twitter and Facebook.
