TOKYO — As Japan’s capital city prepares to host the 2020 Summer Olympics, its ever-quick rate of development has reached new levels, with renovations, refurbishments and construction sites seemingly on every street. Evidence of this can be seen in a handful of new large-scale, multipurpose developments that are drawing crowds into what are already popular shopping areas.
Tokyu Plaza Ginza in 2016 opened with 16 floors and 538,195 square feet of floor space. It was followed last spring by Ginza Six, which quickly became quite possibly the most luxurious shopping center in the area, as well as the largest, sitting on two full blocks of land in the city’s most expensive neighborhood. It has 241 stores and spans more than 1.6 million square feet. If all that square footage weren’t enough, this year the latest multiuse real estate complex to join the ranks, Tokyo Midtown Hibiya, bowed.
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.”
