A girl and a dress.

FROM THE ARCHIVE: The dress as icon. There are many reasons why in front of a campfire lacey frills and robin eggs’ blue make the image impressive. A little girl will become obsessed, refusing even to wear anything else but a dress.

The Postman Dreams.

The visceral appeal of fashion extends far beyond the runway, and luxury brands often explore this by blurring the lines between design and media. As such, a staple Prada bag captured on film becomes not only a campaign told through story, but a work of art in and of itself.

Material constructs.

Intersecting planes of unfinished plywood, fluorescent fixtures, and unsheetrocked walls define the new Feit footwear boutique.

Hackney's empire

The husband-and-wife team behind British brand House of Hackney knows how to do matching. The home furnishings and fashion label reinterprets traditional English aesthetics for a new generation.

Haute horology.

Inspired by the Great White North’s extreme weather, sisters Ashley McDonald and Jennifer Lancefield recognized a gap in the outerwear market: a lack of waterproof apparel that was both fashionable and functional.
