Do Digital Brands Need Physical Stores?
By Chantal Fernandez - January 18, 2017
As many of America’s traditional retailers struggle to attract customers and shrink their store networks, a new generation of more nimble digital players is seeing increased opportunity in physical retail. Indeed, the final months of 2016 saw a flurry of offline activity from retailers that were born digital.
Will global retailers reach beyond U.S. coasts?
By JLL Staff Reporter - October 16, 2016
Visitors to the United States. . .tend to follow well-beaten paths. Europeans tend to end up in New York, Latin Americans in Miami, and Asians in Los Angeles and San Francisco—gravitating toward the familiar, even when it means paying premium rents or waiting for the right space to become available. . . .
Billy Reid Men’s Fall 2017
Women's Wear Daily - February 1, 2017
After taking a season’s hiatus, Billy Reid brought a little bit of Alabama back to New York City, replicating his Shindig extravaganza from his hometown of Florence, AL at The Beekman Hotel.
Performances by actor Alex Sharp, singers Cedric Burnside, Karen Elson and others served as the backdrop for the designer’s softly constructed overcoats, dinner jackets and suits.
Calling the collection “lived-in luxury,” Reid used washed corduroys, boiled wools and feather-soft cashmere to create texture without overwhelming the wearer.
“I love to work with fabrics and colors, but sometimes I can get very elaborate,” Reid said. “This time I think I learned the balance.”
That balance yielded a collection that showcased the best of Reid’s essence but in a much more wearable manner than in the recent past.
