NEW YORK — Nordstrom is leading the way for department stores in the digital space.
The Seattle-based retailer took the top spot in a study by New York University think tank Luxury Lab, or L2, which ranked 40 global department stores using metrics from their Web sites, digital marketing, mobile and social media efforts.
Nordstrom was one of four organizations to receive a “Genius” label — Macy’s followed in second place and Saks Fifth Avenue and Marks & Spencer tied for third. Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, Net-a-porter, House of Fraser, Bergdorf Goodman and John Lewis rounded out the top 10, with the latter pair tied for ninth. The study was released Tuesday and counted online retailer Net-a-porter as a department store.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
