If you can find it in yourself to muster up even the smallest shred of indignation after this week of outrage and insult and horribly offensive store names, then muster it! Because this one is a doozy.
Still trying to keep up with the Kardashians? You’re going to need a whole lot of airbrushing. In the promotional shots for their new denim line for Sears, the sisters’ legs have been whittled to mere twigs.
If all the news about increased holiday shopping had you feeling warm and fuzzy about the American retail sector, you might want to go grab a nice blanket. Kmart announced today that it would close between 100 and 120 of its 4,000 North American stores because of how badly they performed during the holiday shopping season.
We’ll understand if you’re not at all interested in hearing about any more of Kim Kardashian‘s troubles, but this totally tugs our “fashion law” heartstring. It hasn’t gone unnoticed that a lot of the bags in the Kardashian Kollection look way, way similar to some very well known designer bags, and now we in the blogosphere are questioning just how long it’ll take before some of those designer brands start suing.
So you know how whenever we have to write a headline about the Kardashian sisters, we change every letter C in it to a K because it’s hilarious? Well, the sisters themselves tried that tactic in a press release, and it didn’t turn out so well.
Yikes! The Kardashians didn’t really strike us as the stealing kind but Botkier bags changed our mind. The famous sisters’s ‘kollection’ for Sears features a leopard print bag that holds a striking resemblance to the luxury label’s 2009 ‘Clyde’ bag.
Did you know the Kardashian sisters are collaborating on a line with Sears? We didn’t either. Until today. When a notice regarding the Kardashian Kollection reached our inbox.
We thought that the deal to take J.Crew private was more or less done, but there are four companies giving some thought to countering TPG’s offer to buy the brand (and the entirety of its cool factor) for $3 billion. Two of those companies are private equity firms for whom such a deal might make sense. But the other two businesses in the running, Sears and Urban Outfitters, would make pretty strange bedfellows for J.Crew.
It’s been a week full of highs (Emma Watson‘s new hairdo), lows (Teresa Guidice‘s local tanning salon ad) and weirdness (fly legs turned into fake eyelashes). If you’ve missed any of this week’s fashion news, read on and get caught up.
It’s no secret that we love ourselves an NSFW tag at Styleite. From naked — albeit decidedly artful — photos of Kate Moss to Lea T’s arresting portrait in this month’s French Vogue, there’s no shortage of nudity on our site. But that’s fashion. (And if there’s one thing the fashion industry loves, it’s nipple.) But not everyone is a fan of bared anatomy parts, like the American Family Association, for example, who yesterday accused retail giant Sears of “selling smut.”
There’s something about sunny skies and warm weather that seems perfectly suited for a shop like Sears — what with it’s extensive Dad-friendly selection of patio furniture, lawn care equipment and Weber grills. Sartorially speaking however, I’ve always found the blue-collar emporium to be lacking — nothing against coveralls, they just aren’t my thing.
