In 1811, the Commissioners’ Plan laid out the grid system of streets and avenues between 14th Street and Washington Heights that would become the literal skeleton of New York. A year later, New York City Hall was built, and five years after that, the New York Stock Exchange was unveiled.
All those dates show how nascent the future metropolis of Manhattan was in 1818, the year the 45-year-old Henry Sands Brooks opened a men’s haberdashery, H. & D.H. Brooks & Co., in a small wooden storefront on the northeast corner of Catherine and Cherry Streets, within blocks of the East River and the site of the future Brooklyn Bridge, which wouldn’t be built for another 52 years.
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.”
