On a much-buzzed-about corridor of Melrose Avenue, where labels like Marc by Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg and Helmut Lang have all opened boutiques, a retail resurgence has begun. This Tuesday, Joie’s L.A. flagship joins the fray. The label is undertaking a major rollout—in addition to L.A., a Soho shop has just opened in New York, with a Meatpacking District branch and a San Francisco outpost on the way. Still, says creative director Serge Azria, “each store embodies the true feel of the brand: effortlessly chic yet casual.” Who do you call for that? Ryan Korban, the designer whose credits include Alexander Wang’s store and showroom and New York’s Edon Manor. Korban’s vision translated into a Parisian apartment that’s been sun-kissed by SoCal—an apartment, that is, that’s 1,640 square feet large, with herringbone floors and washed gray moldings. “L.A. has always been a big part of the Joie environment—even before we opened on the West Coast,” Korban explained. “Because it is such a large part of the brand, it has always come through in the design, even when we were doing New York stores.” Although New Yorkers are famously wary of all things L.A, we haven’t heard any complaints.
Joie is now open at 8414 Melrose Ave., L.A., (323) 330-1255.

They’re card-carrying members of the Information Era, but downtown designers returned to the Industrial Age for Spring, giving railroad stripes a modern makeover on their runways. Joseph Altuzarra whipped up tailored blazers and “editors’ capes” from the sturdy stuff and underscored its utilitarian appeal with patch labels that riffed on the traditional Carhartt logo. Still, as we put it on our review

In our “Model-Slash” series, Style.com profiles models whose ambitions and drive extend beyond the catwalk.
Growing up on a cattle ranch in rural Utah—in a town with a population of 200—gave Hannah Holman a backstory quite a bit different from most other models’. Not many girls, after all, can claim to have stalked and shot a mountain lion at the age of 13 (more on that later). Now 21, Holman is the face of Marc Jacobs’ Daisy fragrance and has graced Jacobs’ catwalks as well as walking for Chanel, Valentino, and Jonathan Saunders. Holman’s forte, however, is magazine editorials, and she’s done scores of those recently for publications like Elle France, W, Love, and V. “Being in front of the camera is very meditative and I just get into this zone,” she tells Style.com. “You feed off the energy of the photographer and the crew and have the freedom to move and transform.”
Holman was discovered in a local shopping mall when she was 15, and her rise in modeling was initially difficult for her family to grasp. “It’s a hard industry to understand, especially when you’re used to such a simple lifestyle,” she says. “Now they’re all very supportive. My dad, in particular, is always bragging about me to his hunting friends.” When she was younger, the two would ride the tractor around their 3,000-acre property, bringing out baled hay to the cows and rounding them up. Being an outdoorsy girl, Holman is naturally a seasoned horseback rider, too. “We would do cattle drives four or five times a year and go hunting in the fall, winter, and spring—usually for elk or deer,” she says. Her memorable cougar experience was a one-time thing, she explained, because the government permits only a few of the cats to be killed each year. “It’s a lottery system and my name was drawn by chance,” Holman said. “So we went out with a friend who is a hunting guide and knows exactly which peaks and little valleys they hang out in. Mountain lions often hang out up in trees but this one went into a cave. I was scared it was going to attack us and took a few shots with a .30-30 rifle but ran out of bullets, so my dad handed me his pistol and that was the lucky shot.” Holman returns home as often as she can to hit the trails with her family. “When I first left to model, I thought I’d never want to go back, and now when I’m there again, I appreciate it so much,” she says.

In Portland, you can put a bird on something and just call it art. In fashion, you put a bird on something and call it Miu Miu, Givenchy, or more recently, Burberry. Though Miuccia Prada and Riccardo Tisci were early adopters of the trend, we’re finding it’s still got legs—Christopher Bailey put an owl on several pieces in his Burberry Prorsum Fall 2012 collection.
