In honor of its 30th anniversary, the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. is throwing its first-ever fashion exhibition. For its foray into the fashion scene, the museum selected Rodarte as the subject of its special exhibit. The brand has a unique approach to designing clothes and connections to both the film and art worlds, so museum director Susan Fisher Sterling thought Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy would be a perfect fit for the job. "They work a lot like artists in the sense that they're almost artisanal in the way they produce their work; they somewhat go against the grain of having a really huge schedule of shows. They tend to take time with their collections...

Now, Cianciolo is revisiting Run Restaurantfor the 2017 Whitney Biennial, setting up her own artful atmosphere inside the museum’s Untitled restaurant on the ground floor. The first dinner in the series will take place this evening and run until Thursday.

landscape-1492530408-hbz-proenza-bag-index
With a knack for creating cult bags, Proenza Schouler isn't willing to rest in its PS1 laurels. Next up for Pre-Fall is the Curl bag, an homage of sorts to the brand's bags past, that leverages a more is more approach with grommets, rings, and in the case of the above, a very cool palm tree print that has us wishing for summer. "For the Pre-Fall 2017 collection we wanted to create a bag that would consolidate all the design elements we have been using on our accessories in one place – grommets, rings, paneled constructions and bonded leathers," the designers explain, "The Curl Handbag takes all these Proenza Schouler codes and uses them on one bag. The result is a...

Tory Sport Goes To The Amalfi Coast In Languid New Video

landscape-1491330210-hbz-tory-burch-index1

Tory Sport partnered with Nico Guilis of Find Your California on a new video—but instead of hitting up the left coast, the brand time traveled back to the 1970s and the Amalfi Coast in Italy. There, the Spring collection gets the la dolce vita treatment on model Pamela Katz as she spends her day boating, lounging in the sun and practicing yoga. In other words, looking chic in sporty nostalgic wears while doing not much of consequence—the ideal way to spend time on the Mediterranean.

What To Buy From Victoria Beckham For Target, According To Celebs

image
The wait for a Target collaboration to actually drop can be excruciating: We get the designer reveal and then have to wait months for a peek at the result of the pair-up — and then another few weeks for a full lookbook, and then another handful until we can actually shop. We may be used to it at this point, but it doesn’t get any easier year after year, especially when the end-game is wallet-friendly Victoria Beckham dresses. But as we gear up for the Sunday morning debut (which assures that we’ll actually get to brunch on time), we must finalize the game plan for what we’ll actually be gunning for at Target stores and online. Sure, the models very...

Jenna Lyons Is Reportedly Leaving J.Crew

image
Over the past 26 years, Jenna Lyons has reshaped and refashioned J.Crew into the sleeve-cuffing, denim-loving American brand we know and love today. This chapter of the retailer's history is apparently coming to a close: Business of Fashion revealed that, after more than two decades, Lyons will be departing the company. The brand confirmed the news this afternoon in a press release. Lyons' most recent title at J.Crew was president and executive creative director — a big jump from the assistant menswear designer gig she began with when she joined the company in 1990 as a recent Parsons grad. Ever since Mickey Drexler joined J.Crew in 2003 as CEO, she began to play a much more public-facing role at J.Crew —...
