Among the other notable recent shake-ups at Barney's, the brand has just debuted a shiny, newly redesigned website. Like most brands these days, Barneys is putting a stronger emphasis on editorial content and social media—social buttons abound, as do interactive possibilities like a new "favorites" feature. The blog is also featured prominently, and there's a whole section on their favorite "influencers" like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Julianne Moore. And, of course, there's no shortage of Creative Ambassador at Large Simon Doonan, who continues to hold our favorite job title in all of fashion. [Barneys]
