Sartorially speaking, summer tends to be more casual than other times of year, but it’s big business for The Outnet.
The online and digital retailer’s Summer Shop bowed Monday, a fully shoppable section divided into three parts: relaxation, exploration and party. In-house brand Iris & Ink on Wednesday will launch its first swimwear collection at the Summer shop, consisting of a classic black side-tie one-piece bathing suit, ruched red bandeau bikini, nautical striped halter bikini and color-blocked tankini with an athletic, sporty edge. Same-day delivery to the Hamptons will be gearing up.

Stella McCartney has been designing wedding looks for years for customers, friends, family — and herself for years.
And now, leveraging the success of the dress she designed for the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding reception in May, McCartney is launching, Made with Love, a bridal line including eight dresses and an ivory tuxedo, reports @natalietheodosi . “I feel very protective over the bride, because I know what it was like when I got married, and for me to do my own wedding dress. There are moments that are so personal and private, so emotional and loaded with many different issues,” McCartney told WWD in an interview in June. “I think we are really blessed to have the emotional trust with a woman. She’ll come in and feel the love that we put into everything. What she chooses can be conventional or unconventional. It’s a personal experience.” #wwdnews
