What happened today in Racked cities around the country:
NEW YORK—The French fashion label Maison Kitsuné, slated to open in ultra-trendy Nomad Hotel, plans to stock "cultish brands that suggest well-traveled luxury." We're pretty sure that doesn't mean jet-setting Druids of a certain means.
LOS ANGELES—The contest is over. Alaia Rose Barbier, daughter to stylist Monica Rose, just won the Cutest Baby In LA award. With swag like that, no other pint-sized fashionistas stood a chance.
CHICAGO—Racked caught up with Bibhu Mohapatra at the W Hotel's Fashion Next program to chat about his women's wear influences, how to pack for a vacation to Maldives, and which celebrities make him starstruck (Spoiler: It's no one in Hollywood).
