Tiffany and Co. Announce New Tokyo Experience
This week as Tiffany and Co. announced the opening of a "concept store" publications were quick to investigate what this one of a kind store will encapsulate. Said to include a Japanese style cafe, a Tokyo themed photo booth, customization counters and a vending machine, this store won't be your average Tiffany and co. What's more, it was reported by Super Yachts that employees won't be told to stand behind counters but instead mingle with the guests in an effort to appeal to younger audiences. We love this concept, and can't wait for its official launch.
John Elliott Drops Pre-Fall 2019 Look Book
John Elliott dropped his Pre-Fall 2019 look book and it's a streetwear dream. This essential and wearable collection is the perfect transition from Summer to Fall, holding a range of colors and tie-dye patterns. In an interview with Hype Beast Elliott delved into his inspiration for this iconic collection explaining that he wanted to “tell a story about my childhood, my teenage years playing basketball, and creating product that was appropriate for the warmest months.” With a ton of great layering pieces and fun colors, we argue you could even rock this collection during the summer.
