LONDON — While London isn’t exactly known as the capital of beach culture, the city is becoming more of a destination for fashion swimwear with the opening of two new shops: Pistol Panties and Biondi.
Pistol Panties designer Deborah Fleming stitched her first diamante bikini for a Barbie Doll when she was growing up in Miami Beach; she launched the brand in spring 2003. Fans of her retro-inspired bikinis and innerwear include Kate Moss, Elle Macpherson, Jade Jagger and Sarah Jessica Parker. Glamorous Fifties’ English beach resorts inspired the design of her first store, located on Westbourne Park Road in London’s Notting Hill neighborhood, a fitting location to house a collection Fleming describes as “Joan Collins-style pool chic.”
The iconic Tiffany & Co. Fifth Avenue flagship will have a whole new look come 2021, reports @mistywhitesidell . The 10-story store is being expanded and renovated under the vision of chief artistic officer, Reed Krakoff. #wwdnews

And I’m not saying I’m Steph Curry, but when you’re on [showrunner] Ryan Murphy’s team, it seems more palpable than ever,” he continues. (Criss previously starred on “Glee,” another Murphy creation, although they didn’t directly work together.) “I feel like I’ve already won the lottery.” Read more in WWD.com (📸: @lexieblacklock ) #wwdeye #darrencriss #americancrimestory #emmys2018
