Derek Lam x Athleta sketch

Athleta, Gap Inc.'s fitness apparel brand, is partnering with Derek Lam 10 Crosby to create a lifestyle collection., a match made in athletic wear heaven. Lam, whose own 10 Crosby line is geared toward an active lifestyle, said in a statement, "Our customer leads a very active lifestyle. Fitness is very much a part of it and we always strive to create clothing which works in her life. Athleta's expertise in performance fabrics and fibers has offered us a really exciting opportunity to create a collection which complements perfectly what we do for Derek Lam 10 Crosby." The collection will include everything from leggings to jackets to dresses, and will be available on the Athleta website and select stores, and starting in September 2015 at the NYC 10 Crosby boutique. This is the first collaboration of its kind for Athleta, and judging from the above sketch, it's going to be a good one. 

 

Bluemercury

Washington D.C.-based boutique beauty chain Bluemercury has just been scooped up by Macy's Inc. for a cool $210 million. Bluemercury, a luxury beauty product retailer that calls Sephora its number one competitor, has 60 stores in 18 states, including California and New York. Bluemercury carries top beauty brands like Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown, Trish McEvoy, Nars, and Oribe, as well as its own proprietary skincare line called M-61, which founders Mary Malcolm Beck and Barry Beck developed. The boutique chain is growing at a rapid pace, almost doubling the number of stores in the last seven years. "We are excited to continue our aggressive expansion of Bluemercury while simultaneously leveraging Macy’s leadership in omnichannel technology, supply chain and retail operations," said Mary Malcolm Beck of the acquisition. With any luck, you might just find a Bluemercury popping up in your town.

 

Andy Warhol Converse

If you're at all into Andy Warhol you'll love this collaboration between the Andy Warhol Foundation and Converse (yes, as in the sneakers). The all-star sneaker capsule collection includes both high and low tops featuring the artist's most famous works, like his Campbell soup print. "With this collection, we aim to celebrate and foster the innovative artistic expression that’s intrinsic to both Converse and Andy Warhol," said Converse All Star Design Director Damion Silver. "Andy Warhol famously created art inspired by American pop culture icons, and was a pioneer in utilizing the Chuck Taylor All Star as a blank canvas for his work. From this shared creative history grew our collaboration with Warhol." The 14-piece Converse x Andy Warhol collection, available in stores and online now, ranges from $35 to $90 and includes three T-shirts as well as the sneakers.

Kate Spade Saturday

If you're a fan of Kate Spade Saturday, Kate Spade's younger, more casual offshoot, you may be disappointed to learn that the company is shuttering all nineteen of its stores, as well as all twelve Jack Spade brick and mortar locations. The news comes as a surprise, as Saturday is only two-years old and as of late last year was still opening new stores. Still, weak sales couldn't cover the costs of promoting the label, and that's bad for business. The stores will close gradually over the first half of 2015, but there is a bright side to all of this--neither label is disappearing completely. According to the company, Kate Spade Saturday will remain its own label and merchandise will be sold in Kate Spade stores. As for Jack Spade, Kate Spade & Company's twenty-two year old menswear label, a statement from the company said the label would "pursue a new business model" and "expand its e-commerce platform." 

 

Piperlime

We suspect a major liquidation sale is on the horizon because Gap is shutting down Piperlime, both the e-commerce site and its one brick and mortar located in New York. And the sale will be taking place fairly quickly as it's being reported that Piperlime will be finito by the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2015. Piperlime is the smallest of Gap Inc.'s brands, bringing in less than one percent of the sixteen billion dollar revenue across all six of the company's brands, which include Old Navy, Banana Republic, and Athlete. The website sells designer labels such as Marc by Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade, and Haute Hippie, as well as more moderately priced brands like Tinsley Road, Eight Sixty, and its own Piperlime Collection. We're sad to see this one go; the free shipping and returns (no minimums!) made this one of our favorite shopping sites.

 

  Kendall and Kylie Jenner

Kendall and Kylie Jenner sure know how to stay busy. The teen sisters have already designed collections for Madden Girl and PacSun, and now the girls could possibly be collaborating with British retailer Topshop. Apparently the duo are in talks with Topshop CEO Sir Philip Green, although neither side is confirming or denying a design collaboration. If the rumors are true, the Jenner sisters would be joining model Kate Moss and superstar Beyoncé as celebrity designers for the retailer. Stay tuned!

Uniqlo long sleeve denim dress

On our radar lately--easy, versatile pieces that can be worn alone or layered. This Denim Long Sleeve Dress from Uniqlo definitely makes the cut. It may not look like much, but this sweet little frock can be worn in so many different ways. We love how it looks belted with chunky booties or layered under a printed sweater and worn with our favorite Chuck Taylor's. And when the weather warms up a little, we'll pair it with nothing but a pair of leather sandals and a topknot. We can already tell this is going to be one of our favorite pieces.
