J.Crew does barnhand-meets-banker at their new Upper East Side location which opened earlier today at Madison & 79th Street. The interior is less stuffy than most UES men's boutiques, a welcome change for the shopaphobic men. Featuring weathered wood recovered from old barns, the interior blends perfectly with tailored wool blazers and its signature clean, prepster look. The building is actually a former bank, and the lower level of the shop has the vault still intact in the back, this time filled with bags, vintage finds, and shoes. (One can argue that these are the only goods worth really protecting anyway!) Maybe the banker set will channel their inner barnhand with the Quoddy chukka boots that look too comfortable not to be worn on a weekend jaunt (city or country).

Natasha Poly takes no nonsense for the Corps d’Elite editorial in the September 2010 issue of Vogue Paris, as shot by Terry Richardson. The super plays the role of a tough-talking drill sergeant sending her trainee, Jamie Dornan, through the ringer. If Poly demands, “Drop and give me 10!” we will obey!

With a brand built on tongue-in-cheek fashion industry quips splayed across tees and other basics, Henry Holland definitely knows how to have fun with his line House of Holland. He's at it again with an exclusive line of acronym dresses, tees, and hoodies for British retailer Browns. Trying to figure out what abbrev "I.Y.F" means? In your face, of course.

We're endlessly impressed by the Cocos, Karlies, Constances and more who take the runway nearly 100 times each season; the quick-changes, running from show to show, and ravaging hair and make-up regimes make simply writing about the shows look like cake. In Korea, however, the girls have upped the ante with a fashion show under water. (Yes, you read that right.) The Underwater Hanbok Fashion Show hit Seoul yesterday as part of a promotional department store opening, featuring designs by the likes of Park Sul-Nyeo. At least you know the clothes aren't dry clean only! Now who's up for a swim?
