Jun Takahashi, the Sorcerer of Fashion – New York Times

Thursday, August 17, 2017

On one arm, in swirling English script, is the word ‘‘chaos’’; on the other, the word ‘‘balance.’’ ‘‘That’s hard to get,’’ he says, looking down at each tattoo in turn. If some of Takahashi’s shows are reminiscent of McQueen’s, it seems important to remember that there is, by contrast, a whimsical and sometimes even seriously hopeful quality to his…

Thursday, August 17, 2017

Stylist Leesa Evans: Clothing makes us more confident and happier on a daily basis – Los Angeles Times

Thursday, August 17, 2017

While some stylists focus their work on the flashbulb-fueled moments of the red carpet, costume designer and personal stylist Leesa Evans is just fine delving into the contents of a client’s suitcase or the psychology behind sweatpants.

Thursday, August 17, 2017

Fall also signals change to come, and sometimes change is a good thing. If you’re feeling the “back to school” vibes, you’re probably ready to do the grownup version of BTS shopping (unfortunately, mom’s not here to pay for everything you need to look cool around all your peers). If you haven’t taken advantage of pre-fall events, like Nordstrom’s anniversary sale, to get your hands on fall goodies before the…

Android Wear now belongs to fashion brands, not gadget nerds … – The Verge

Thursday, August 17, 2017

It may seem like Android Wear is dead. Google’s smartwatch platform has lost a lot of its supporting partners, been plagued with bugs and update issues, and isn’t nearly as popular as Apple or Samsung’s smartwatches. Except, Android Wear’s not quite dead. It’s just not alive where you expect it to be: with the Motorolas, Asuses, or LGs of the world. It’s alive in the display cases of department stores…

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

While strolling through a Macy’s the summer before the 2016 election, Maddie Redder was instantly infatuated with a white, long-sleeved lacy shirt. It was beautiful. It was classy. It was also by Ivanka Trump. Initially, the brand didn’t bother Redder, a 67-year-old real estate agent who emigrated from Colombia to Florida.
