JOHN ELLIOTT JUST BROKE ALL OF HIS OWN RULES – GQ
“When most brand’s would be happy to keep serving up the bread and butter of their business season after season, Elliott decided to take a hard left for Spring 2017. Breaking away from the dusty-hued, downtown brand of off-duty (and in this age of zero dress codes, on-duty as well depending on your employer) gear, the designer’s newest collection was a game changer for his four-year-old label.”

IN MENSWEAR, WHAT COMES AFTER ATHLEISURE? – TheCut
“Yesterday, on his menswear runway, Coppens presented an innovative way to take athleisure — a motif that, while undeniably going strong, is running low on novelty — in a new direction. While his own UA designs have yet to be debuted, Coppens combined pieces from the main Under Armour collection with his own, more tailored designs. So models wore compression shirts under blazers or sported UA sunglasses on the backs of their necks, hiking-dad-style.”

EILEEN FISHER, INC. DEBUTS LIMITED-EDITION “REMADE IN THE USA” COLLECTION AT BROOKLYN POP-UP SHOP – PRNewswire
“The shop will host the exclusive launch of “Remade in the USA” – the limited-edition 500-piece collection created by the CFDA Social Innovator Award Winners. The pop-up shop will open the last two consecutive weekends of July.”

FROM MULBERRY TO INFINITY: EMMA HILL LAUNCHES HER OWN HANDBAG LABEL HILL & FRIENDS – Forbes
“For quite a few years, the Bayswaters and Alexas were the only bags that mattered: they were practical, they were hip, they were simply the must have accessories for all It girls. Emma Hill, being the former Creative Director of Mulberry, the much talked-about and celebrated key figure who not only turned Mulberry into a major player in the fashion industry but also managed to achieve an all-time high stock price in 2012, has launched her own handbag label Hill & Friends together with former Mulberry Brand Director Georgia Fendley.”

A FIRST LOOK AT KIM JONES’S NIKELAB COLLABORATION – Vogue
“Inspired by the lifestyle of jet-setting athletes, Jones and the activewear behemoth have partnered to launch a range of performancewear and sneakers that are every bit as functional as they are easy to stuff in a carry-on. Oh, and they’re pretty freakin’ cool, too.”

THE RESULTS ARE IN FOR AMAZON PRIME DAY – RetailingToday
“According to official figures from Amazon, this year’s Prime Day was the e-tail giant’s biggest single day ever. Customer orders surpassed Prime Day 2015, Amazon’s previous top sales day, by more than 60% worldwide and more than 50% in the U.S. It was also the biggest day ever for Amazon devices globally, as well as a record Prime Day for each Amazon device category including Fire TV, Fire tablets, Kindle e-readers and Alexa-enabled devices.”
