"i love the way the minute you walk in the store you are engulfed in the ln-cc universe," describes vogue art director jaime perlman. "the interiors, the merchandise, the sounds, are all curated in a way to clearly articulate a unique visual architecture for the ln-cc shopper, that feels quite personal in a way. i also like how each room has mixed price-points, the way a real shopper would most likely wear the merchandise."
