The day after Barneys New York named Daniella Vitale its first-ever female chief executive officer, the store launched a new campaign devoted to women’s empowerment. Titled “We Will Be,” the initiative is done through the Barneys New York Foundation, the retailer’s charitable arm that was founded in 2016 as a way for the store to advocate for human rights, the arts and education. For the campaign, Barneys commissioned videos done in partnership with the High School of Fashion Industries and MAKERS, a women’s media platform, that highlight strong women. They were installed Feb. 3 in Barneys’ Madison Avenue and downtown New York windows to coincide with New York Fashion Week.
The timing could not be more apt, considering the heightened cultural focus on the protection of women’s rights under the Trump administration and the arrival of Vitale as the store’s first female ceo. The initiative was her idea.
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.”
Meet Flamingo. The direct-to-consumer brand is Harry’s first foray into products designed specifically for women. The line goes beyond shaving, venturing into a space that is typically relegated to darker corners of the drugstore — at-home waxing. #wwdbeauty
