Blame it on Austin’s SXSW Festival, which begins this week, but we have a sudden desire to add some Southwestern flavor to our look. In lieu of Stetson hats and roper boots, however, we’ll be sticking to more city-friendly options, like an Étoile Isabel Marant embroidered cardigan or a sweet cotton dress by Ermanno Scervino. Who says country can’t be chic? Shop our picks from Balenciaga, Kelly Wearstler, Golden Goose, and more, below.

Animation, designer duds and the power of instant purchasing come together in Barneys’ latest endeavor—a shoppable spring film called Wild Things. Created by filmmaker and photographer Barnaby Roper under the direction of Barneys creative director Dennis Freedman, the film stars Kinga Rajzak and follows her through a black-and-white cartoon land while she wears looks by Isabel Marant, Acne, Carven, Rag & Bone, and beyond. And when it goes live on Barneys’ Web site tomorrow, viewers will be able to point, click, and buy as they watch the short, thanks to Liveclicker technology. “The movement, special effects, and graphic treatments Barnaby created work because there is also a sense of humor and wit, which make them Barneys,” said Freedman of the project. Naturally, in addition to being practical (and pretty persuasive), the film has that classic Barneys quirk (think playful, primitive drawings with a vintage Pop art edge).
According to Barneys, the video, which debuts exclusively above, is part of the retailer’s ongoing push to expand its presence in the digital space. For instance, the department store has launched the Barneys Warehouse website—its first permanent off-price e-commerce destination (not unlike the famed Warehouse Sale, the site features past-season items at up to 75 percent off). Other digital milestones include the recent website redesign, a focus on The Window—Barneys’ editorial site, and, of course, last year’s holiday Disney film and corresponding scavenger hunt, which was conducted via Twitter. To accompany the spring film, Barneys will be launching mini videos, designer interviews, and more as a part of its increased focus on digital content creation.
The final day of Stockholm fashion week began with AltewaiSaome, a young label designed by Natalia Altewai and Randa Saome. For Fall, the pair was inspired by a trip to New York and showed a luxe take on streetwear. Featuring embellished dresses, emerald-green hooded silk jackets, and relaxed silhouettes, their wearable urban collection had an easy, sporty tone.
J.Lindeberg’s Fall ’13 (above) was all about traditional tailoring with a modern twist. Inspired by the Stockholm City Library, the men’s collection was filled with well-cut suits and coats, as well as a few splashes of color and playful prints. For women, the brand (which is sold in more than thirty-five countries worldwide) offered sophisticated separates in black, navy, and olive.
Over at Diana Orving, there were earth tones, metallics and flowerlike sheer organza appliqués. A few dresses were shown in a script print, which the designer wrote in her own hand, but the long lace dress paired with a transparent off-the-shoulder cardigan was the highlight of the show.
Tiger of Sweden—which some have come to call the Burberry Prorsum of Stockholm—closed fashion week with a standout show (a show that, it should be noted, included model Kirstin Liljegren, pictured above). Tweed coats and caps were mixed with color-blocked silky looks in black, deep purple, and neon. The outerwear, however, was the crowd favorite—a big fuzzy fur coat made front-rowers look twice.
Stockholm fashion week may be finished, but the Swedes still have two more local brands to look forward to: Acne Studios will be showing in Paris this season (they formerly showed in London), and Rodebjer has recently started presenting their collection in New York. Indeed, we’re excited to see what they’ll bring to the international fashion stage.
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.

In recent seasons, some of our favorite designers—like Proenza Schouler, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Nina Ricci, and Balmain—have played with denim.
