DICK’S SPORTING GOODS EYES BID FOR FORMER RIVAL – ChainStoreAge
“In June, Dick’s acquired the intellectual property of the bankrupt Sports Authority. Dick’s is now preparing a bid for the U.S. business of Golfsmith International Holdings Inc., according to Reuters.”

EDDIE BORGO INTRODUCES HIS FINE-JEWELRY LINE FOR TIFFANY & CO. – Vogue
“A disruptive spirit is felt in the collection. The draped-collar necklace and bracelet play to Borgo’s punky sensibility as much as to Whitney’s obsession with the classical muse (one of her most prominent works is the Titanic Memorial, dedicated in 1931 in Washington, D.C.).”

ZAC POSEN PRESENTS NEW UNIFORMS FOR DELTA – TheNewYorkTimes
“Zac Posen is a designer known for dressing celebrities like Reese Witherspoon and Claire Danes in fantastical Cinderella extravaganzas.

EBAY MAKES BID FOR YOUNGER SHOPPERS WITH REVAMPED IMAGE – TheWallStreetJournal
“EBay Inc. wants people to think of it as a first stop for all online shopping, not as an auction house of stuff from grandma’s attic. The e-commerce site is trying to redefine itself to capture new, younger consumers who shop on their phones and don’t have time to scroll through thousands of listings.”

HERE’S WHAT VETEMENTS’ FIRST-EVER SNEAKERS LOOK LIKE – GQ
“But the buzziest item is by far the brand’s first pair sneakers, a take on the iconic Reebok Pump Fury. The sneaker, seen above, retails for $350.”

LVMH IS IN TALKS TO BUY A BIKE BRAND AND THAT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE – TFL
“LVHM and Hermès are not alone. In 2012, famed trunk maker Moynat introduced the $33,000 Malle Bicyclette, largely as a means of selling its new picnic basket.”
