Want To Succeed In Fashion? Take a Tip From Google’s Top 10 Most Trending Fashion Brands of 2017

04-gucci-spring-18-backstage-corey
The days of fashion as an elitist and exclusive niche industry are done—just look at Google’s list of the most trending fashion brands of 2017 for proof. Every brand in the top 10 made headlines in 2017 for boundary-crossing collaborations, innovative ad and marketing campaigns, and projects with creative upstarts that reflected the pulse of the world at large. The number one spot on the list goes to Gucci, a brand that’s been on the rise since Alessandro Michele was named creative director in 2015. This year, though, Gucci has really been on fire. Not only has every one of its fashion shows outdone the last, but it’s also racked up new celebrity fans, from Rihanna to Harry Styles, and managed to...

Pasta Flyer Wants To Start The Next Fast-Casual Lunch Trend

healthyish-pastaflyer-lead
Mark Ladner has one goal: to make me a bowl of al dente pasta in under three minutes. Three minutes is a comically short window, but he’s determined. He plunges his index finger into a 205° pot, then lifts it to his mouth to test the salt levels. In approval, he dunks a pre-portioned knot of pasta into the water. Thirty seconds later, a timer beeps, and perfectly al dente fusilli emerges. Also, it’s organic. We’re at Pasta Flyer, the streamlined Greenwich Village restaurant that Ladner opened with partner Nastassia Lopez after a long stint helming fine-dining icon Del Posto. Everything is pre-portioned; everything is timed. It’s an exacting ballet and the key to Pasta Flyer’s mission: $7 bowls of pasta, prepared fresh with sauce and toppings,...

Hailey Baldwin Works Out In Lingerie And Pigtails Just Like Us

hbz-hailey-baldwin-love-index-1513178802

Though this year's Love Advent Calendar has featured less lingerie and more workout sessions, Hailey Baldwin's video for Day 13 combines the best of both worlds.
Hitting the model-favorite workout spot, The Dogpound, Baldwin trains wearing a white lingerie set, pigtails (with white scrunchies, nonetheless), tube socks, and sneakers—as any workout aficionado does.

The workout routine is so relatable, in fact, that you will probably ask yourself, "am I watching Hailey Baldwin workout, or is this lost footage of me at the gym last week?"

Bella Hadid Gives Her Birkin Bag The Ultimate Cool Girl Makeover

spl1635880_036
Bella Hadid is upping her accessory game. Earlier this week, the model pushed the envelope in next-level ugly-pretty Nikes with a crushed velvet yellow finish, only to follow it up by sporting another transformative add-on with a twist the next day: a silver Birkin. She carried the bag to dinner at Zuma last night in New York, instantly breathing new life into the most classic of wardrobe pieces (and it did wonders for her off-duty style, too). Hadid kept the shine in check with a compact version that was small enough to fit right alongside her growing collection of micro bags. She was smart to go low-key with the rest of her attire in faded jeans and an unapologetically tiny crop top, braving...

This Mailroom Is Serving Up Chic Cocktails And We’re Obsessed

hbz-mailroom-nyc-05-1513114228
The Financial District is known for classic establishments like Delmonico’s and Harry’s Bar, but the downtown area around Wall Street has begun to move away from the stuffy banker’s bars of decades past, heralding new trendy spots that would make any New Yorker relinquish the Lower East Side and move even further downtown. Case in point: Mailroom. Situated beneath WeWork’s latest concept, WeLive, the space acts as part mailroom to the residents that live above, and part speakeasy bar to the fashion set and young professionals alike. While WeWork has become known for its shared office spaces that foster small businesses and freelancers, WeLive aims to create a living space that fosters community, flexibility and those looking to forgo the traditional living environment. Their New York City location, right on...
