Fashion & Finance Friday!

The loveliest part of a long weekend might just be the super short week that follows.  Happy Friday!

Gucci announced that Frida Giannini’s replacement as Creative Director is


….her former assistant, Alessandro Michele.


uhm…that is not how you spell Tom Ford.    I even checked the Italian/English dictionary.


Converse sued 32 companies in the fall of 2014 for trademark infringement on their ICONIC Chuck Taylors.


Some of the companies include Ralph Lauren, Skechers, Walmart, Ed Hardy etc.  Ralph Lauren has agreed to a settlement agreement and will destroy 35 different styles of shoes that smack of Chuckies.


Chuck Taylor’s were born in 1917, so perhaps this imitation is just forgery not flattery.

Suddenly excited to put on my new Wildfox & follow directions!


Enjoy the weekend!

  1. That’s a whole lot of suing!! I’ve often wondered if the original copyright holder (Converse) was going to do anything about all the copying. Usually a message is heard loudly when it affects the bank account.
