In effort to bolster digital payments, Visa has announced its new features for connected, payment-enabled devices that deliver sensory confirmations via sound, animation and vibration once a transaction has been completed. The updates come at a time when consumers are increasingly shopping via mobile devices — even when in a physical store.
“As payments become increasingly embedded in commerce, the notion of ‘Everywhere You Want to Be’ takes on even greater meaning for our brand. As new payment experiences continue to take shape in the world, this suite of sensory branding elements will give consumers the assurances we know they want every time they use Visa,” said Lynne Biggar, chief marketing and communications officer of Visa.
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.”
