NEW YORK – “Bespoke, fast design.” The words Christiane Lemieux used to describe direct-to-consumer startup The Inside are two adjectives rarely used together when it comes to home furnishings and fashion. But in the case of the furniture e-commerce site, which launches today at theinside.com, they work.
In Lemieux’s world, made to order goes hand-in-hand with speed – and fashion – where the finished product arrives at a customer’s doorstep within two weeks of an order being placed. To be exact, the entire process takes anywhere from six to 14 days, depending on where in the country something is being sent, Lemieux told WWD during an interview at the brand’s TriBeCa headquarters here.
“I’m looking forward to jumping into the creative process and exploring fashion through a different lens,” said actor Michael B. Jordan exclusively to WWD about becoming the first face of @coach ‘s men’s business. Not only will the actor appear in its global ad campaigns, but he will also create a capsule with designer Stuart Vevers. Tap the link in our bio to learn more. #wwdfashion
“The name of the show is GP — giant pockets,” said Karl Lagerfeld pre-show, in his backstage meeting room at @Fendi to Bridget Foley. @Bellahadid was one of the many famous faces who graced the catwalk including @Gigihadid, @Adwoaaboah, and yes, even @Kendalljenner. #wwdfashion

“We are obsessed with Fendi and we want to share this obsession,” said CEO Serge Brunschwig to WWD. @Fendi will be releasing a new capsule collection Oct. 16 centered around the Fendi/Fila logo created by Instagram artist @Hey_reilly. Further proving the logo trend isn’t going anywhere. Link in our bio for more details. #wwdfashion
