BY ORDER OF BRANDON FREIN
Show me someone who thinks THE ORDER has a supremely young and supremely niche audience, and I'll show you someone who wore a pink jumpsuit and silver sneakers to Berghain...and she's not 25.
Meet Brandon Frein, professor/wardrobe stylist by day and wife/social butterfly by night. She's an adjunct professor at Columbia College for fashion styling, and has been running the style agency Kit This with longtime friend/business partner Arlene before #girlboss was even a thing.
THE ORDER thrives on defying expectations, and this woman could (and probably does) teach a class on it. She’s beautiful, she's funny, she’s sexy, she’s radically independent, she has a grey streak in her hair and she wears THE ORDER like a boss…and, she’s over 50. There's something about her that just makes you want to BE- it's intoxicating, and it's everything. She has inspired me both in heart and in style from the moment I met her four years ago, and I can only hope to be as righteously badass as she is at her age and at every age.
Piece-by-piece, she expertly incorporates THE ORDER's aesthetic into her own unrivaled style and the result is so wonderfully and unapologetically HER. As evident in the images below, Brandon proves that all you need to just fucking own it are magnetic energy, a killer pair of specs and a few jet-black pieces from THE ORDER.
Peep how fabulous she is below, and then stalk her at @thegreystreak.
FEATURED PIECES: Avarus Choker, Xenon Pant, Aether Bodysuit, Lithuim Crop.
BY ORDER OF CHAUNY X DIRTY FLAWS
Of the myriad macabre style queens and creatures of the night that decorate corners of the web near and far, Nikki of Dirty Flaws / @dirtyflawsss has always been sovereign as far as I'm concerned. Her style and eye for photography are intoxicatingly beautiful, so I was beyond thrilled when she orchestrated this stunning cocktail of fashion forces.
- 1 part Chauny (model/stylist/creative/muse)
- 2 parts Rick Owens (boots, jacket)
- 3 parts The Order (Beta Hotpant, Scioness Wrap, Exception Tunic)
- 2 parts Dirty Flaws (stylist/photographer)
Shake, stir, and see below as the high priestess of dark dressing does her thing. She's usually in front of the camera, but despite her brand name, Nikki is flawless no matter which side of it she's on. THE ORDER, by order of Chauny X Dirty Flaws.

BY ORDER OF CARLA JIAN.
As a wife, mother, AND health/fitness teacher, Carla Jian is the living embodiment of femininity and strength. I first discovered her through her beautiful Instagram feed, after she left a complimentary and encouraging comment on my own. A few weeks later we met in person, and our energies collided in the most serendipitous way: I had been searching for a new context in which to feature THE ORDER, and she thought some of my pieces would lend themselves perfectly to yoga. Add to the mix our mutual friend/insanely talented makeup artist Stephanie VanHazebroeck (her work is GORGEOUS!) and photographer Hallie Duesenberg (with whom we'd both been wanting to shoot- she's so good at capturing people in their element!), and I had a killer trifecta of Chicago talent to work with. These women joined forces to further their mission of empowering the women around them in every way, and I couldn't be more proud to share what we created together. A few favorites from our shoot are below: THE ORDER, by order of Carla Jian.
