Juicy Couture’s New Jewelry Is Surprisingly Awesome

There are two types of people in the world: those who wrote off Juicy around the same time they got rid of their Uggs, and those who look like they’re vying for a spot on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” or “Jersey Shore.” Or at least, that’s what we thought. The maker of the iconic velour tracksuit has steered itself in a new and appealing direction—you may have heard that they recently hired Erin Fetherston to design and consult for the brand—and you can already see some fresh style through the new jewelry offerings. Some of these pieces seem to take inspiration from Dior’s floral cluster designs, which is a good thing because we can’t afford Dior anyhow. As for JC, we’re loving the vintage-looking enameled flowers found on showy cocktail rings and delicate chains. Some other highlights include interwoven fabric and chain necklaces, messy cluster jewelry à la Tom Binns, and delicate hoop earrings draped with trinkets. Check out a few more of our favorite pieces after the jump! [JuicyCouture.com] Keep reading »

The Trend Maker’s Catch-22

When it comes to big retailers like Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters doing what they do best—supplying us with affordable, current trends—it might not actually be the Marcs and Wangs of the world who are really getting screwed. The Wall Street Journal asserts that it’s in fact the lesser-known, indie designers who are suffering in the knock-off war. Giants like American Eagle Outfitters are on the lookout for cute, niche items that could have a mass appeal, and the problem is that indie designers don’t possess the resources to keep up with demand: “Small designers face a particularly large burden; often, they lack deep pockets to chase down versions they find similar, and their brands are so little-known that customers often aren’t aware they’re not buying an original design.” This might explain why we’re seeing so many diffusion lines and capsule collections produced in partner with stores like Target—the smaller guys want to produce a cheaper version of their wares before someone else does and takes all the profit. So what’s to be done? Keep reading »

Fashion’s Night Out Travels Around The World

Unless you live in New York City, you probably didn’t care much about last September’s Fashion’s Night Out. This year, however, Anna Wintour‘s pet project is going global. From Sept. 7, when the event begins in France, to Sept. 16, when it ends in Greece and Turkey, 16 countries will participate in the shopping extravaganza, with the various countries’ editions of Vogue spearheading the events. Retailers in the United States that are outside NYC can sign up to participate, too. And all of this, from the largest public fashion show, held in NYC on Sept. 7, to whatever crazy stunts retailers dream up, could make it into the CBS special that’s being made about the event, the goal of which is “to celebrate and support the fashion and retail industries with full-price shopping.” [Fashion’s Night Out]

UPDATE: Fashion’s Night Out was actually global last year, too, but this year’s event has three additional countries participating. With so much focus on NYC’s festivities (we do live in the Big Apple, after all), we had no idea! Keep reading »

Can You Believe This Is Juicy Couture?

With a recent infusion of fashion credibility in the form of Erin Fetherston, the designer well-known for her ethereal princess designs and floaty dresses, Juicy Couture is working to make a new name for itself and get way from tired sweatsuits. Erin’s very first creation had a major debut on the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala. Apparently, after the announcement of her new position as guest designer and creative consultant, Erin fashioned a “Bespoke Juicy Couture” caftan out of the exact same fabric as those well-known velour jumpsuits. Her dress turned out really well given the material and the connotations that go along with it, proving that a good designer can make anything look fashionable. We have to admit, this could be a brand new start for Juicy Couture. [Racked via Styleite] Keep reading »
