It only makes sense the editor and creator of Man Repeller, Leandra Medine’s new office space is just as chic as she is. An urban retreat that evokes a sense of calm, her main focus was on clean and minimal details. “I’d seen an image of a white room with rustic wood floors and a ladder positioned somewhere that didn’t lead anywhere. It made me laugh/feel comfortable so I wanted to approximate that vibe,” says Medine. A fresh retreat, Medine’s Soho office is perfect for getting down to business.

Season after season the arm party continues to reign. It’s clear dressing your limbs has never been more fashionable- some even call it a form of art. It’s the creative process of stacking, layering and displaying jewelry on your fingers and wrists that make the most basic ensemble brilliant. When considering how much attention is placed on the wrist and arm these days, it makes sense that people are stacking everything they own up to their forearms. A fad born in the streets, this over-accessorizing phenomenon has feigned prosperity and permeated fashion scenes around the world. We suggest if you haven’t jumped on board yet, it’s definitely time to give it a try!
Life is busy when you’re a mom and a designer, but that doesn’t mean Alexis Barbara doesn’t find time to style her own designs. This week she keeps our Olivier skirt classic and simple by pairing the hi-low with our Gavan leather jacket, Fendi mules and a Chanel purse.

Where have all the eyebrows gone? We’re not really sure and frankly we aren’t that interested in finding out. Whether they’ve been bleached to oblivion or completely shaved off, this new trend has cropped up fashion innovators around the globe. The “browless” look first arose last fall on runways and models like Lara Stone and is now reflected in magazines and designer advertisements. “Everything is possible right now, and that’s a great way to look at this moment,” says Sarah Brown, the beauty editor of Vogue. Not everyone is as open-minded on sacrificing their eyebrows but if you’re interested in shaking things up, maybe this cutting-edge look is for you. On the right face there is no denying its chic attraction but we kindly request to please proceed with caution.
