Marquee Brands has breathed new life into Ben Sherman since acquiring the label two years ago. And on Sept. 1, the brand known for its bright British-inspired men’s wear will reenter the New York market with a store in SoHo.
The 2,000-square-foot store at 130 Greene Street will be open through the holidays and will offer monthly programming and activations ranging from a speaker series and influencer dinners to concerts. In terms of merchandise, it will carry the entire Ben Sherman collection, which ranges from ready-to-wear and bespoke suits to footwear and jewelry, as well as limited-edition pieces. There will also be a full-service shirt bar that harkens back to the history of the brand, which was founded in Brighton, England, in 1963 as a young men’s, “Mod”-inspired shirt line. It has since evolved into a lifestyle brand targeting men between 25 and 40 years old.
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
