PARIS — In retaliation to U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs, the European Commission adopted on Wednesday rebalancing measures that target a list of products worth 2.8 billion euros, including fashion, beauty goods, footwear and jewelry. The hike in duties levied on certain U.S. imports at the EU boarder, which ranges from 10 to 50 percent, goes into effect on June 22.
“By putting these duties in place the EU is exercising its rights under the World Trade Organization rules,” the European Commission said in a statement.

“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
