Q&A: COS Designer Martin Andersson on the Brand's Cool Kid Vibe, New L.A. Store

COS, the seven-year-old London-based older sibling brand to H&M and go-to for smart, well-constructed staples (one of the few places where it's acceptable to utter the words "four hundred dollar" and "suit" in the same sentence) opens its first US location today, much to the anticipation of editors who previously, had to take $1,000 flights to buy the all those $200 coats and $75 oxfords during European fashion weeks. The 5,683-square foot, mid-century modern store on Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills, joins others like it in 22 countries where the cult of COS stocks up on slim-cut soft swirl chinos, see more

Why Your Next Financial Advisor Should Be a Robot

When LinkedIn went public in 2011, Adam Nash remembers, Wall Street wealth managers swarmed the Silicon Valley campus, pitching their services to the 100 or so early employees like him who'd just become crazy rich. "But that did little to help the other 1,400 people seeking financial advice," says Nash, then LinkedIn's VP of product management. "I thought, It doesn't have to be that way." Now it's not—for those 1,400 and their first-, second-, and third-degree connections. see more

Finally, a Fitness Tracker You Won't Be Embarrassed to Wear

We know, we know. Every day, it seems a new fitness tracker set to "revolutionize" the fitness industry magically appears on the market. But we think we may have found one that actually might make the bridge between sport and style. By designing something that looks closer to a sleek and sophisticated timepiece, the folks over at Withings Activité show that a fitness tracker can go with way more than stretchy bike shorts and even make a case for wearing it outside the gym. see more
