How ’bout we brighten up the skyline next, Ishknits? | Photo (sans bikini) via Shutterstock.
If you don’t already know of Ishknits, take a walk over to the sort of creepy sculpture at 16th and Vine. It’s wearing a knit jogging suit. A neon knit jogging suit. My friends over at Ticket alerted me to it, and I’m loving it. But I want more.

For those affected by or have loved ones affected by cancer, we have good news that comes in the form of cozy, brightly colored kimono-style robes. And it’s all possible because insanely awesome people like Brenda Jones exist.
During Jones’ own battle with cancer back in 2008, the South Jersey resident started making her own unique robes to avoid the unsightly hospital-issued gowns worn during radiation. The robes caught on, and suddenly everyone wanted their own, to which Jones happily obliged. It was her “Vera Wang moment,” she says.

Sometimes it can be tricky to gauge the extent of a sale, particularly a sale announced via email blast. Is it a store full of markdowns? Just a rack? Maybe a bin? Are there coupons and a secret handshake involved? You only really know what’s in store until you’re, well, in the store. So I did some recon at Erdon on Friday afternoon. Let’s put it this way: There’s an entire room dedicated to discounted designer merch.
Photographic evidence ahead.
It’s rare that Philly is gifted with brick-and-mortar access to limited-time designer collaborations. It usually warrants some super-quick online ordering come release day, or worse, begging an NYC boutique to mail ‘em to you. So if the announcement of the 3.1 Phillip Lim x Linda Farrow collaboration had you booking Greyhound tickets, don’t fret! You can buy the sunglasses right here in Philly. Joan Shepp for the win!

Over on Naked Philly, there are the beginnings of rumblings about a Banana Republic opening at 1911 Chestnut Street, right across from the Boyd Theater. This news comes from very reputable sources, i.e. “two dudes sitting on coolers outside the space.”

It’s heeeere: Jonathan Adler’s long-awaited warehouse sale. And, even better, it’s online, so you don’t have to make a mid-day dash to our Old City Adler outpost to score the deals. (But go anyway, because being in that store just makes you happy.) Last year’s warehouse sale actually crashed the site. Don’t worry: This year, the team assures us that they’ve “beefed up our servers and souped up our system to handle the chic-est stampede of shoppers around.”

When it first occurred to me to do to a roundup of embroidery for The Edit this week, I found myself reciting a Miranda Priestly a la The Devil Wears Prada line: “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” (Except in my head it was, “Embroidery? For summer?”) Embroidery isn’t exactly a trailblazing summer trend, but the typical iteration is more likely to be seen on a pair of ancient Levi’s than on a polished jacket or a pair of barely-there d’orsay flats. Here, 9 ways to make embroidery look polished and chic this summer. Miranda Priestly be damned.
