What 9 Instagram Employees Wore to Their New Offices


Instagram has a sunny new home in New York City. The social media giant now has its own floor at 770 Broadway, where its corporate parent Facebook also has offices.

The 80,000-square-foot space features lots of new media clichés: shared desks, cheekily named conference rooms and freebies galore (think juices, gelato and an open bar). Yes, there are Instagrammable nooks, too, including a vertical garden, a rainbow dome and a tiny Versace-designed room. Some 290 employees work here, and here are nine we “liked.”

Age: 27

Occupation: Curator

You look like you’re dressed for a day at a hipster beach.

Today, it’s like camp counselor who also works at a burger joint. A little “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” Season 6 meets thrift.

You can curate me anytime.

Oh my God, thank you.

Age: 34

Occupation: Co-founder and chief executive

You’re one of the more conservatively dressed people here.

I grew up on the East Coast, in Boston, and I went to private school and I think that always stuck with me. I like wearing collared shirts and being a bit more preppy.

Age: 35

Occupation: Technical program manager

You’re dressed more adult than many of the people here.

That comes with a little bit of age.

Which brands do you really like?

For my shirts I like Brooks Brothers. Pants are Bonobos.

The trousers are very preppy.

Nantucket red. I like the color. It’s the summertime.

How many different pairs of pants are in your wardrobe?

The ones that fit — seven or eight. There’s quite a lot more at the bottom of my wardrobe.

Are those too big or too small?

A little too small. You’ve seen the gelato bar and all the food around here, right?
