Style.com’s iPhone application made headlines last season for putting our exclusive fashion show pictures and reviews—not to mention our up-to-the-second Style File blog and runway videos—in the palm of your hand. As if you needed another reason to download it, we’ve now added party pics to the mix, as well as coverage of the men’s shows. Which means hours more front-row fun for you and your friends. What are you waiting for?
Note: If the Fall 2009 shows fail to display on your device, you may need to download the latest iPhone software update from iTunes.
Last season Style.com was the first to bring full-screen slideshow viewing to fashion show coverage. Now we’ve added to the experience by introducing enhanced navigation. You can still move in sequence from one runway shot to another by clicking the “previous” or “next” buttons, but our new thumbnail browser also allows you to jump back and forth quickly between different sections of the collection. And the “click to view latest shows” link lets you access the rest of our coverage without leaving the full-screen environment. To launch a full-screen slideshow, just click on the link located beneath the main image on the review page. Trust us, this is going to be huge.
*And for once it’s not his own. More fashion week notes from the editorial director and publisher of Dazed & Confused
No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. Style.com has a whole new look—clean, airy, and modern, with bold, eye-catching graphics throughout every section of the site. But we like to think that this is one makeover that’s more than skin-deep. We have made significant improvements to the architecture of the site, from a better organized homepage to helpful navigational elements, like a New on Style.com module, that now appear on every page. The net result: It’s quicker and easier to find the wealth of content our editors produce every day.
Talking of which, we’ve not only improved popular existing features like our up-to-the-minute fashion show coverage, photo-packed party reports, behind-the-scenes videos, and user-generated lookbooks, we’re also introducing several new ones. Please check out our all-new Beauty Counter blog and our all-improved Style File blog. On September 2, look for Shop Now, a new feature in which our fashion editors will be scouring the Web sites of the world’s top designers and retailers for the best online finds. And come New York fashion week (which begins September 5—not that we need to tell you that), there will be lots more. A full-screen slideshow option will let you see runway photos in even more glorious detail, and our “virtual front row”—your favorite models, editors, and socials in avatar form—will provide instant feedback on the latest shows and backstage intrigues. We’re also happy to announce that model Coco Rocha is joining Style.com as our new video host.
Please leave comments or questions about our new design below. Unfortunately, we can’t promise that Coco will answer them personally, but we will read them all carefully.
