TOKYO — On Friday, men’s wear retailer Union celebrated its first new store since its Los Angeles location opened in 1991. Streetwear fans packed into the space and even spilled out into the street, where a food truck was parked to serve the crowd. Inside, DJs played and guests sipped on Coronas.
“The kind of family that this store came from that I grew out of is Stüssy, Supreme, Undefeated and Union, and there’s always been a really strong connection to Japan from early, early on,” said Union’s owner, Chris Gibbs. The Tokyo location is a franchise partnership with Jack Inc., which will also serve as the brand’s distributor in Japan. In addition, the company has been Stüssy’s local partner for over 35 years.
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.”
