“Perfection can sometimes be the enemy of good,” said Allbirds founder and chief executive officer Joey Zwillinger, who opened the inaugural ReMode conference last week with a fireside chat alongside the event’s founder Pierre-Nicolas Hurstel. “Start with something you think is best in class, and as long as you are up front with people that you are trying to make products that are authentically tied to that, you can have great success.”
ReMode gathered industry leaders and innovators at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Nov. 13 and 14 to spark ideas on new ways of investing, designing, marketing and approaching fashion, from raw materials to the in-store experience. Among the companies represented were Kering, H&M, Google, Target Corp., Tmall, Lacoste, Farfetch, Alice + Olivia, The Real Real, Westfield, Levi Strass & Co. and Shopbop, as well as leading financial investors and technology providers.

“Sand, summer, sea,” is how designer Sarah Staudinger describes of the beginnings of her latest collection for Staud, writes @elmercer.
Summer was encapsulated through an array of adorable picnic inspired garb in poppy hues like tablecloth gingham compact knit playsuits and matching sets and plenty of crudite-emblazoned offerings. The best foodie-looks included a salad printed waffle minidress with matching cardigan or a matching neon green knit set with fringe made of mini glass lemons (and matching croakies). #wwdfashion
