ROME — Rome wasn’t built in a day. And neither was the new Rinascente store located on the Italian capital’s Via del Tritone. It actually took 11 years to complete the project, which, along with the several bureaucratic issues the retail company had to solve, also required almost 1,852 days of construction.
“I think today we feel like athletes who won five Super Bowls or five NBA finals in a row,” said Rinascente chief executive officer Pierluigi Cocchini. “Rinascente Via del Tritone is in the city, for the city and with the city,” he said, highlighting that the new 1.6 million-square-foot department store, which carries more than 800 brands, aims to become a meeting point creating a rich exchange with Rome’s citizens and the tourists visiting it.
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.”
