What’s not to like about Jac Jagaciak? The Polish runway vet has certainly become a familiar face, even to those who don’t follow models. At the Style.com office, we have loved her since her start in 2009 (she was only 15!). Aside from her killer good looks, she’s always had a signature nonchalant aesthetic that keeps the street-style photographers on their toes. For example, one of her recent looks snapped in Paris included black skinny jeans, suede sneakers, a two-toned boyfriend blazer, and a classic Chanel bag. The getup and the laid-back hair speak to Jac’s down-to-earth nature, which make us even bigger fans. Re-create her look with the essentials from Acne, Isabel Marant, and more, below.

Isabel Marant’s West Coast fans have reason to rejoice. Today, almost three years after christening her first U.S. boutique (located on Broome Street in New York), the Parisian designer, whose unfussy, bohemian clothes have made her a cult favorite amongst cool girls worldwide, has opened her second stateside location in L.A. On Melrose Place, no less.
Working with Paris-based architect Frank Azzi, Marant created an atelier-like boutique that, she tells Style.com, is “all about atmosphere.” And there’s plenty of it. Fronted by a lush garden and adorned with sculptures by French artist Arnold Goron, the 1,335-square-foot space makes use of natural light, a quality that was, in Marant’s mind, essential. “L.A. has such amazing light and sky. It would be a shame not to enjoy it.” As for the tony Melrose Place address, Marant admits that it was coup de foudre, or love at first sight. “The shop is exactly where and how I wished it would be—my little cabin in L.A.,” she says, adding, “The store isn’t only a place where we sell clothes; it’s also where we share a certain lifestyle.” The Melrose boutique will house the designer’s main collection and Etoile, as well as accessories and bijoux.

“I wasn’t a sneaker kid,” admits Rupert Sanderson, “but I am fascinated by trainer-nut culture. They’re speaking an entire language out there.” For spring, the designer has learned their lingo. Taking a sharp turn for the street, England’s reigning prince of the pretty, less-is-more pump will join the ranks of fashion heavyweights to present a luxury sneaker line. But he won’t be going the way of, say, Stella McCartney’s shimmering hightops or Isabel Marant’s runaway platforms. Instead, Sanderson’s kicks boast a clean, classic look that will appeal to his loyal clientele. The design goal was simple: “I wanted to make sneakers chic.” Meticulously cut, the collection runs with its designer’s tested and true minimalism while embracing the history of the fashion trainer. For instance, Sanderson has given his signature daffodil motif a streetwise update and employed gold lamé and flashes of neon for a vintage nineties feel. Considering his sneakers’ strong, simple silhouettes, soft, quilted textures, and guaranteed craftsmanship, we’d bet that trainer-nuts will soon be fascinated with Sanderson, too.

Australian model Catherine McNeil popped up on more than a few Spring 2013 runways, walking in Paris at Saint Laurent, Hermès, Kenzo, Isabel Marant, and more, as well as Helmut Lang in New York. With her piercing stare and fresh, choppy bob, McNeil has been one to watch around the Style.com offices. But it’s not just her runway look that’s put her on our radar—her off-duty duds have caught our eye, too. Snapped in Paris by Vanessa Jackman, McNeil sported a graphic sweater and leather miniskirt with edgy motorcycle booties and an Isabel Marant jacket thrown over her shoulder. We’ve rounded up the essentials below because—minus the cigarette—this getup’s worth repeating.
