Introducing Our New Home Page

Style.com's New Home Page

Good afternoon. If you’ve just logged on, you will have noticed a new look to the Style.com home page. That doesn’t mean a redesign of the site as a whole, but we thought now was the right time to apply a couple of key structural improvements—and a fresh coat of paint—to our front page.

There were two main things we were looking to address. We wanted to better showcase the lush fashion imagery that accompanies many of our features, and we wanted to provide clearer access to the wealth of content our editors and contributors produce every day. At the top of the page, you’ll now find a beautiful extra-wide rotating unit that cycles through our street-style bulletins, trend and shopping guides, party reports, and other daily features. Below that, you’ll see clearly marked, automatically updated feeds for our fashion and beauty news stories as well as the Style Map posts from our sixty global correspondents. The page also has dedicated spots for new sections like The In Cloud, our real-time rankings of the fashion universe’s brightest stars, and popular favorites like our runway show coverage. We aimed to make the new Style.com home page easier on the eye and easier to use.

As we approach our fifteenth birthday next year, we’re committed to keeping Style.com as fresh as ever. In addition to Style Map and The In Cloud, we recently introduced The Fashion Tracker, Clique to Buy, a number of new video series (do not miss Throwback Thursdays with Tim Blanks), and—better late than never—a proper, lightning-fast mobile site. And there’s more to come in the next few months. We welcome your feedback about the new home page and the rest of our new initiatives below. And we’d love to hear about other new features you’d like to see on Style.com in the future.

Sibling Scores Woolmark’s European Prize

-------

A look from Sibling's Spring '14 Menswear collectionProps to Sibling‘s Joe Bates, Sid Bryan, and Cozette McCreery, who, WWD reports, have won the European leg of the International Woolmark Prize. Selected by a panel of judges that included Angela Missoni, Godfrey Deeny, Susanne Botschen, Franca Sozzani, and Style.com’s Tim Blanks, Sibling will take home $46,108 and will now compete for the overall prize. For the next six months, the London-based trio, who launched their quirky, colorful range back in 2008, will work on a merino-wool-centric capsule, which will be judged alongside those of other international finalists.

And don’t think Woolmark has forgotten about the good ol’ U.S. of A. The U.S.-based competitor will be announced on July 9 (finalists include Altuzarra, Creatures of the Wind, Wes Gordon, Whit, Bibhu Mohapatra, Daniel Vosovic, Ohne Titel, Timo Weiland, Tucker, and Giulietta), and the international honoree—set to be revealed early next year—will receive $92,210 and the chance to be sold in retailers like Harvey Nichols, Saks Fifth Avenue, Joyce, and 10 Corso Como.

Peter Lindbergh Shoots The CFDA’s Big Book

Tim Blanks by Peter Lindbergh

The CFDA Awards—in all their glittery glory—are set for June 3 (tune in on June 4 to see our broadcast). Each year, the Council compiles a mega-watt journal, including portraits of and information on all the nominees and honorees, which is handed out to guests at the event. Last year, Craig McDean had the honor of shooting the portfolio, and for 2013, the CFDA and the journal’s art director, Trey Laird, tapped Peter Lindbergh to lens the 150-page tome (the book was styled by Vanity Fair‘s Jessica Diehl and written by Max Berlinger). Here, black-and-white snaps of honorees Riccardo Tisci, Vera Wang, and Oscar de la Renta make their exclusive debut (below), as does a portrait of our very own Tim Blanks (above), who, having been named the Eugenia Sheppard Media Award honoree, is featured today on Style.com in an in-depth interview with our deputy editor, Matthew Schneier. To celebrate Blanks’ win, the likes of Raf Simons, Mary Katrantzou, Dries Van Noten, Thom Browne, and more came together to talk all things Tim in our exclusive video, A Change in Perspective.
