Josh Goot “Confident” Of Surviving Voluntary Administration

Prepare your heart to break a little. Josh Goot’s eponymous line is going into voluntary administration, in a bid to save the business he founded over 10 years ago.

Goot revealed in a statement (via The Australian) that the company needs “to take some time to restructure to protect the long-term interests of the brand and all involved,” but has not pinpointed any specific challenges that the label is facing.

He did, however, admit that there were “well-documented external factors at play within the domestic industry” including the Australian dollar, domestic production costs, and international competition.

But unlike recent fashion-label casualties like Lisa Ho and Kirrily Johnston, Goot has been able to keep his label’s head above water during the toughest of times in our fickle landscape. “The retail market has witnessed a prolonged downturn since the GFC in 2008 and we are proud that we have been able to sustain and grow the business throughout the challenging period, while manufacturing exclusively in Australia,” he said.

Goot’s also hinting at many more years of dressing his devoted customers, like his girlfriend, Vogue Australia fashion director Christine Centenera, Lara Bingle and Kim Kardashian, in his label’s sought-after digital prints, sharp cuts and luxurious fabrications. “We’re confident that we can emerge from the voluntary administration as a better business,” he said.

“We are (as a brand), I think, unique in the Australian landscape and that doesn’t necessarily make our experience easier, but I also think that it does give us a real future and that’s what we’re going to be working to secure,” he added.

As for the upcoming collections, business is going about as usual with the Autumn 2015 collection launching next month (look out for it at tonight’s David Jones fashion launch) and design and production for Spring 2015 in the works.

We’re crossing our fingers for a speedy recovery, because our wardrobes just won’t be the same without a little Josh Goot injection.

Karl Lagerfeld and Cartoonist Tiffany Cooper Team Up for a Capsule Collection

Karl Lagerfeld is getting animated this season. The designer has tapped cartoonist Tiffany Cooper to create a capsule collection for his namesake brand. These days, nothing with Lagerfeld’s likeness is truly complete without the presence of Choupette, so Cooper has drawn images of both the kaiser and his fluffy white pet for a collection of apparel and accessories due out this April.

Cooper announced the partnership on her Instagram and says that we can expect more “very exciting” projects from the pair in the near future, so we will be watching to see what unfolds.

The range will bow at Colette on April 1, and will be available at Lagerfeld boutiques starting April 4.

Bruce Jenner Reportedly Opening Up About Transitioning to Diane Sawyer

There has been a lot of talk in the media as to whether or not Bruce Jenner is currently transitioning to become a woman. His stepdaughter Kim Kardashian told Entertainment Tonight last week that Bruce was the “happiest I’ve ever seen him,” and said that as far as his personal life, Bruce should “tell his story his way.” Kardashian added, “He’s our dad, so we support him no matter what. And I think when the time is right, he’ll talk about whatever he wants to talk about. I guess I’ll kind of let everyone be curious, and I feel like that’s his journey to talk about.”

While it is still not confirmed that Bruce is actually transitioning, judging by Kim’s comments, it’s clear that the Olympian turned reality dad has something he needs to share with the world, and according to Page Six, he’s going to get Diane Sawyer to help him out. Word is that Bruce will sit down with the journalist for a special coming out in May. Sources say that they will start filming the story this week.

Bruce’s alleged transitioning has been a hot topic as of late. In Touch Weekly magazine recently published a grossly insensitive cover picturing Mr. Jenner in women’s clothes and makeup with the headline, “My Life As a Woman.” Hopefully, Bruce gets the chance to do exactly what Kim hopes — tell his story his way.

Stop Panicking: Lip Smackers Aren’t Going Anywhere

Get ‘em while they’re hot! Lip Smacker Party Pack, $9.69 at Rite Aid

Last week it was reported that after nearly 90 years, family-owned Bonne Bell Company was shutting down manufacturing and distribution operations at its Westlake, Ohio headquarters and as a result, 91 employees were expected to be laid off. From vanilla and mango to cotton candy and the famous Dr Pepper flavor, Lip Smacker lip gloss was all the rage for any beauty obsessed girl growing up.

The news of the cult favorite brand broke our inner tween hearts and hit close to home for our social media manager. “Lip Smackers were a gift bag staple at every Bat Mitzvah and were a go-to present for Valentine’s Day,” Meg reflected. The fun, cheeky glosses are hallmarks of our youth and were present for many first kisses, but before you start freaking out — don’t.

Thanks to an acquisition by California-based Markwins International Corporation, the folks behind Wet n Wild and Physicians Formula, Lip Smacker will continue to remain in our lives. Yesterday, Lip Smacker tweeted this message, which eased our minds:

Phew! Let the nostalgia live on.

Kanye West May Be Showing His Adidas Collab at NYFW

We’ve been waiting forever to finally see what Kanye West whipped up for his much-hyped Adidas collaboration and finally, we may get to see what the rapper has been working on all this time. 

An image of the invite for the Kanye West x Adidas presentation leaked on Instagram earlier today, and sources say Adidas and Mr. West will be making the big reveal on February 12. It’s interesting that he may choose New York Fashion Week to show his latest, especially since Kanye has been so partial to staging shows in Paris.

Adidas hasn’t confirmed the date, but it has been promoting the collaboration in tandem with the release of its new Confirmed app, so there’s reason to believe that Kanye’s collection will be on shelves soon. Of course, we will be patiently waiting to see what Kanye offers up for Adidas. If his previous collaborations are any indication, this latest range should do rather well.
