Hello-Hello and welcome to a Thursday Friday!
Many thanks to all for their lovely comments on yesterday’s post, we appreciate the support more than you may realize.
Back to today, there is lots and lots going on! In an effort to jam it all most of it into this post, we’ll do some of the newsbytes headline-style
Other bullet points today:
- Jimmy Choo is doing a line with Uggs. No, we did not make this up. (However, another individual here in the office did ask if this makes the new collection “Chuggs”.)
- Word is that Bloomingdale’s is working on opening outlet stores to better compete with Neiman’s Last Call and Saks’ Off Fifth. Lord & Taylor’s first outlet store opens in February.
- Women’s Wear Daily also has a story about the future of Martin & Osa, the concept store American Eagle Outfitters debuted in 2006. The story quotes retail analyst Liz Smith:
“The older customer AEO attempted to target with M+O proved hard to please and AEO has struggled with fit, design and building awareness for the new brand,”
WWD also has the news about a new face at Polo Golf:
Webb Simpson has been signed by Polo Ralph Lauren as a brand ambassador.
If interested in seeing precisely what looks Mr. Simpson is wearing, he is currently playing in the Sony Open in Honolulu. (Pssst, if in need of any polos from the Women’s Golf line, these are on sale!)
That pictures looks like a pile of ice cream sherbet to us. Yumalicious.
We have an early look at the Zac Posen for Target collection via Refinery 29 and Fashionista.
The collection is slated to be in stores April 25.
Fashionista has images of all the looks.
But that is not the only designer line for Le Boutique Targét we have photos from – Refinery 29 snagged pictures from Jean-Paul Gaultier’s upcoming collection.
This group launches March 7.
From their story on the collection:
“At times the looks can look sweet, ranging from prim floral A-line skirts to bustier tops with a chipper, sailor’s neckline. But other times the looks can be positively head-scratching.”
And finally, Fashionista is reporting that Target’s next designer collaboration will be Tucker by Gaby Basora. Below a few looks from that line:
We leave you with two delicious looks, the first a different take on a classic. Regular readers know are familiar with our completely irrational devotion fondness for Hello Kitty; below, the Hello Kitty LOVE Pendant in sterling with Pink and White sapphires/diamonds. It is available at some Zales stores.
The second item is related to someone’s addiction to appreciation of a certain snack food:
The Hershey’s Kiss Pendant in sterling is rather cute, perhaps a little something for a Valentine on your list.
With that sweet thought we say g’bye for now, hoping everyone enjoys a simply splendid weekend.
