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

Unknown-3

….her former assistant, Alessandro Michele.

Unknown-1

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

Unknown-2

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

Unknown-5

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.

Unknown-4

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!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Helllllllllo Sunny Gorgeous Weekend!

Very cool development on the internet – the first 1930 applications have been submitted to ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) for gTLDs (generic top level domains).  HUH?  In other words, uber cool fashion house Chanel has applied to have it’s new url end in .chanel as opposed to .com.  Other companies listed include L’Oreal, Coach, Nike, Gucci, Target, ZARA, Wal-Mart and Chloe.  Each application comes with a $185,000.00 fee, and so far ICANN has received $350 MILLIONl!

hmmmmm, reversecommuter.reversecommuter?  🙂

Seven For All Mankind is launching “Slim Illusion” denim mixed with soy protein which will deliver improved stretch and a better recovery process.  What this means is fewer women will be seen pulling up their belt hoops when they get out of the car!  The Slim Illusion Twill will be introduced in the Fall, will come in a rainbow of colors such as blackberry, ginger and lagoon,  and will sell for $168.00 US.  The process is from Japan, and the fabric supplier is top secret.

reversecommuter is off to NYC for the weekend and is SO EXCITED!!!!!!  (watch for more on that in later posts)

Have a fab weekend!

It all started on a waterfall picnic, when I realized that my Paige Denim cut-offs just weren’t making me happy.  (you know how that is, right?)
