Good Luck Zac, you might need to call in Nina Garcia & Heidi Klum to tap some of the creativity from Project Runway!

Oh Solo Mio!  That is a little reversecommuter joke, as Brunello Cucinelli’s head office is located in a small Italian village called Solomeo (insert hysterical laughter here!!).  Brunello Cucinelli recently created a trust in his 2 daughters’ names and transferred the entire company’s money into the trust.

Brunello created the trust to “ensure unified management” within his company but also to ensure the philanthropic and environmental focus of the company continues into the next generation of leadership.  Click here for more on Brunello and how much reverse commuter LOVES his luxe cashcash.

Wishing you a stupendously fabulous weekend filled with amazing outfits and endless champs!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

OHEMGEE!!!  Friday is here again!

J.C. Penney has some rather influential friends in it’s corner.  Nina Garcia tweeted a positive message regarding the retailer and KERPOW the stock ticker popped up 10%!  Nina signed on as the JC Penney “Style Voice and Fashion Collection Currator” on July 18th (see full press release here).  But it was the power of her tweet that sent the JC Penney stock waaaaaay up – bet the executive team that brought in the mighty Nina Garcia are pleased as punch with themselves!

Joe Fresh (Canadian H&M-esque retailer) has signed on to be part of the instore boutiques to be launched in the new & improved J.C. Penney stores.

Seems as though JC Penney wasn’t kidding around about completely changing the way they deliver retail.  reversecommuter is intrigued and thought it might be interesting to casually track the stock’s performance.

The ticker is JCP.  This should be fun!

Diego Della Valle, the owner of Tod’s (Italy’s butter soft luxury shoe and bag company) is shelling out 21 MILLION Euros to restore the Colisseum in Rome.

I wonder where he is going to put the little nobs?

Happy Happy Weekend!
