So much has been going on so I thought I would do a quick round-up of the biggest fashion stories out there.
1. New CEO Appointment for Jimmy Choo
Pierre Denis has been appointed as the CEO of Jimmy Choo after what has been a number of upheavals for the company- former CEO Simon Holloway and former chief Tamara Mellon both left the brand shortly after it was bought by Swiss company Labelux. However, Denis has impressive fashion credentials, recently holding the position of CEO at John Galliano SA and was previously managing director for Christian Dior Couture in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and India.
2. Coach Awarded Multi-Million Dollar Payout
Congratulations to Coach who have just been awarded a multi-million dollar payout due to counterfeiting. Coach's third fashion brand to be awarded as a result of counterfeting in as many months with both Hermès and Burberry each awarded £63 million in similar counterfeiting cases in April and May.
Linda Allen, in Syosset, New York, worked with her daughter, Courtney, to sell fake Coach handbags via two websites - Bellafashions.net and MyClassyFashion.com - as well as online auction site eBay. The judge ruled that the pair had violated Coach’s trademarks on 11 types of goods.
The efforts of YSL creative director Hedi Slimane to reinvent YSL from Yves Saint Laurent to Saint Laurent Paris have finally been revealed with the first images of the fashion house’s rebranding. The images reveal the new ‘Saint Laurent’ typography, as well as another picture feature a black product box with the new branding on it. However, the brand will continue to use its iconic overlapping YSL logo.
4. Stella McCartney Launches Everyday Lingerie Range
The latest addition to Stella McCartney’s brand has been revealed with ‘Stella’, a collection of everyday lingerie. The new range aims to be more practical, and affordable, incorporating innovative and cutting edge technology to create the thinnest, lightest and one of the most invisible collections in the market. It is said to offer a "nearly nude wearing experience". ‘Stella’ will be available from August in Stella McCartney boutiques and online at stellamccartney.com as well as select department and speciality stores including Harvey Nichols, Harrods, Net-a-Porter and Matches.
