Black'Up has more than 200 doors worldwide.
FINGER FASHION: When it comes to sporting the season's hottest stilettos, sometimes it's best to let your fingers do the walking. Since the Charles Worthington hair salon on London's Percy Street has started offering manicures inspired by Christian Louboutin's signature scarlet-soled shoes, dressing digits has become a snap. Manicurist Zoe Pocock paints nails whatever shade her clients desire and adds a red hue beneath the tips to recall the soles of Louboutin's designs, all to the tune of 35 pounds, or about $68.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year.
