    Who’s Buying J. Crew’s New XXXS Clothes?
    BY AMY MERRICK | The New Yorker
    What’s happening at J. Crew can be difficult for Americans to grasp: as the U.S. has become a less attractive place to open stores, retail isn’t solely about their needs anymore. The triple-zero and extra-extra-extra-small clothing is not designed for the average shopper in Houston, Miami, or even Manhattan. Instead, J. Crew said that the sizes are a response to the requests of petite Asian customers, particularly at its new stores in Hong Kong, who had trouble finding Pixie pants and boyfriend jeans that fit them.

    10th Annual Fashion On The Square Kick Off
    by Robert Silver
    (July 19th, Yerba Buena Gardens) Robert Silver - It was a picture perfect sunny San Francisco day when a flash mob dance crew began a  coordinated group dance. As more and more dancers joined so did the crowd. Before you knew it you had a mob of dancers to the front of you and cameras, cell phones and onlookers to the back of you.

    Haute Couture Fashion Week: A Combination of 21st-Century and Historical Antecedents
    The Independent
    Every July, a funfair lands smack-bang in the middle of Paris’ Tuileries Gardens – it’s flashy and brash, with a lot of neon and noise. It’s a bit like the illuminations that transform the Eiffel Tower as soon as the sun sets: history gussied-up with fancy lights and all the attention-deficit tricks of the 21st century to become a hot tourist attraction.

    Raf Simons is revitalising Christian Dior - and the rarefied world of French haute couture
    ALEXANDER FURY | independent.co.uk
    He is one of the most important designers working today. His own label, which turns 20 next year, has helped define the contemporary menswear landscape.
     
    Simons is often characterised as a minimalist. He's not: he's a realist, who wants his clothes to be worn. "I'm trying to bring a lot of reality [to Dior]," says Simons, "which relates to how women live their lives today."

    Why Women Are Flipping for Kate Hudson’s New Athletic Line
    HowLifeWorks.com

    One thing is certain when it comes to high-quality athletic wear — it's expensive!

     

    Take a single pair of Lululemon yoga pants. They average more than $90, while a simple pair of Nike running shorts can easily cost you $50.

     

    It makes sense that you want to look and feel good when working out, but by the time you get an entire outfit together you could spend $200.

    Op-Ed | Luxury Brands Are Wrong to Ignore Africa
    JOHANNA COLLINS-WOOD | BoF.com
     Earlier this year, Nigeria became Africa’s largest economy and the 26th largest economy in the world, valued at $509 billion, based on GDP figures that were recalculated using a base year of 2010 instead of 1990. Given Nigeria’s new status, as well as its new crop of millionaires and billionaires, who have become wealthy through oil (Nigeria is the 11th largest oil-producing nation in the world), Nollywood entertainment and other business ventures, one might assume that major luxury good companies would turn their attention towards Nigeria, as well as other emerging markets in Africa, as an important source of opportunity. That, however, is not the case.
