Greats Releases an Easy Pair of Summer-Ready Slip-ons

One of the biggest reasons our spring and summer wardrobes are so deadly simple is, well, they can be. Without the chill of fall or winter breathing down your neck, you're free to slip into whatever goes on (or comes off) fastest. Which is why we're so keen on Greats' latest release, the Wooster slip-on. (Important to note: It's named after, and not designed by, the noted fashion buyer and street-style personality Nick Wooster.) The shoes share the same spirit as other slip-on sneakers, but they're made from a pretty high-quality Italian leather. They also have a cushioned footbed that see more

Say It Ain't So: Reports Claim Band of Outsiders Is Shutting Down

If the reports about Band of Outsiders shutting down are true, we're going to be really, really, really sad about it. The news that the 11-year-old brand, led by designer Scott Sternberg, would close its doors and cease operations were first reported by Fashionista Tuesday morning. But the man himself, who's been a longtime favorite of the editors here at Details, told WWD later in the day that he wouldn't be commenting on the situation. "Nobody knows anything at this point but me," he said, "and I've been advised not to comment at this time." Sternberg's fans will know he's see more

Model Joan Smalls Channels Pharrell in This Year's CFDA Awards Journal

We're less than a week out from the CFDA Awards—which is essentially the Oscars of fashion for American designers. Each year, the CFDA also produces a limited-edition "journal" that features imagery and short profiles on the nominees and honorees. This year, Pharrell is being honored with the Fashion Icon award. Unfortunately, Pharrell couldn't make the shoot for the journal because he was somewhere being iconically stylish, so the CFDA (with its creative partner Trey Laird of Laird + Partners) used model Joan Smalls as a stand-in. Smalls is styled wearing Pharrell signatures like the Adidas track jacket and Stan see more

Science Is Trying to Figure Out the Best Instagram Filters (Yes, Really)

Science has taken a break from silly matters like curing AIDS or cancer and is focusing its attention on the important things—namely, Instagram. Researchers are turning their incisive gaze to the world of social media—specifically the effects of using different filters on one's Instagram photos, reports NYMag. The study, which was helmed by four scientists and is titled Why We Filter Our Photos and How It Impacts Engagement, seeks to figure out if the filters we used had any affect on the way people interacted with them. As fate would have it, it does. They studied 7.6 million photos see more

Brendon Babenzien on Life After Supreme, Relaunching Noah, and His NYC Pop-Up Store

When news broke in February that Supreme's then-creative director Brendon Babenzien would leave the streetwear brand to restart his own label Noah, he took some of his followers by surprise. But to hear him tell it, his decision couldn't have made more sense. "The timing was really good because I just had my daughter" he told us at the site of his new pop-up shop, at 393 Broadway in New York City, which he's running in collaboration with Union's Chris Gibbs. "She's only six weeks old, and I was present for those six weeks. I've spent a lot more time see more

A Guide to San Francisco, Courtesy of Menswear Boutique Unionmade

For Todd Barket and Carl Chiara, founders of San Francisco-based menswear boutique Unionmade, their brand filter boils down to a simple formula: quality first, then timelessness. "So much of fashion now is fast and cheap," says Barket. "We believe the best things in our wardrobes get better with age. If you're going to spend more on a garment, we want you to wear it years from now and still realize how nice it is. We may not be of-the-moment, but we believe in being authentic and effortless." From Japanese Kapital scarves to Levi's Vintage to Golden Bear varsity jackets, it's see more

Will Alexander McQueen Be on Britain's Next £20 Note?

The Bank of England wants to put a visual artist on its new £20 notes, and one of the first names to pop up as a possibility is the late fashion designer Alexander McQueen. The Telegraph reports that the bank wants to replace its current £20 note figure, Adam Smith (who you may remember from your high-school macroeconomics course as the guy who gave us the term "the invisible hand"), with one of the "individuals within the field of visual arts whose work shaped British thought, innovation, leadership, values and society and who continue to inspire people today." McQueen certainly see more
