Only 7 more sleeps till NYC FNO! And it’s Friday! Gotta love a double combo of happiness!
J. Crew is getting ready to expand internationally. This is a bold move considering international and domestic economies are not exactly healthy. J. Crew is already up in Canada, with one store in Toronto (where reversecommuter has it on good authority you can get a much better selection of the highly coveted and hard to find J. Crew Collection.
And net-a-porter (LOVE LOVE LOVE all things Natalie Massenet & net-a-porter!!!)) carries a considerable amount of J. Crew (which reversecommuter found quite surprising at first but now warmly embraces).

Now the retail powerhouse is preparing to open up stores in Hong Kong and London in the next two years, and will begin to ship internationally to 107 countries! Mickey Drexler is doing a great job – not a big surprise (click here to see an earlier reverse commuter.com posting on the retail Midas, Mickey Drexler).
DuJour Magazine (click the blue to take a look at this fab new mag) – the magazine that will only be delivered to readers whose homes are over $1.5 MILLION and have an average income over $250K – is truly a gorgeous magazine (in print and online – the interactive digital version is phenom).
Jason Binn, publishing guru and founder of DuJour Magazine is also chief advisor to Kevin Ryan, Gilt’s CEO, among other projects including Niche Media which publishes 13 magazines scattered across major US cities such as Boston Common Magazine, Aspen Peak and Gotham to name a few.
reversecommuter is very excited to let you in on a little secret…I am going to the DuJour Magazine launch party on Wednesday September 5th….KIND OF EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have a brilliant, fabulous, fashion filled LOOOOOOOONG WEEKEND!
