On August 16th, each Styld.by partner, including Refinery29, WhoWhatWear, Lookbook, Rue and Stereogum, will host in-store events to celebrate the launch of the fall collection.
Shine will appear in September issues of national magazines including Vogue, Lucky, InStyle, Glamour, GQ, Men's Health, Rolling Stone and Nylon and outdoor in key markets including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago.
