PARIS — He set out to disrupt the license-dominated eyewear sector with the launch in 2006 of a niche sunglass-focused collection, and for his latest move Thierry Lasry has his sights set on the optical market.
The debut optical line of the New York-based French designer is to bow at the Silmo trade show here on Sept. 28. “It’s a complete game-changer for us. It’s almost as if we’re starting again, only we know our business and have the brand recognition,” Lasry said during a preview of the collection at his Paris store.
Super-influencer @chiaraferragni doesn't miss a beat— or a party. Last night, she inaugurated Pomellato's newest boutique on Rodeo Drive, decked out in bling from the jewelry brand. At the event, Ferragni took some time to sit down with us to discuss motherhood, being a newlywed, and the hotly-anticipated documentary she is currently filming.

As the conversation around sustainability only grows stronger in fashion circles, Everlane has made a new declaration: it’s saying goodbye to virgin plastic. The company, whose ethos is all about “radical transparency,” in terms of pricing and ethical factories, plans to be completely free of virgin plastics by 2021. “We’re producing millions of units and every unit that goes out is wrapped in plastic,” said founder and CEO, Michael Preysman. “At the beginning, it was like, ‘Hey, let’s just take off all these plastic bags.’ There are a lot of complications to that. Everything you buy in the world comes wrapped in plastic when it comes out of the factory.”
