Yoox and Net-a-Porter Back in Merger Talks

Yoox Website

As of late, there have been many rumors surrounding the fate of Net-a-Porter. Late last week, the e-tailer made headlines over a possible purchase by Amazon. Now it seems that the luxury online fashion destination could be joining forces with Yoox, another high-end website owned by parent company Richemont.

A rep from Yoox has confirmed to The Wall Street Journal, that they are negotiating with Net-a-Porter on a “business combination,” restarting talks that fell flat in 2013. A merger between the two companies could be good for Richemont, which has been struggling to make a profit off Net-a-Porter. The e-tailer’s distribution centers are part of the reason why Net-a-Porter has been so expensive for Richemont, so perhaps combining the sites will help remedy some of these issues.

Yoox’s shares have already experienced a jump in the stock market since the announcement, increasing 9.4% to €23.07 (roughly $24.97) a share.

Iggy Azalea Went from One Extreme to the Other for This Weekend’s Red Carpet

Iggy Azalea has been a busy bee this week trying to promote herself and her new single “Trouble”, hitting the red carpets for both the 28th Annual Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards and the 2nd Annual iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles over the past couple of days.

For Nickelodeon’s orange carpet on Saturday, March 28, Iggy opted for something a lot more polished and girlie than we’re used to from her. The rapstress wore a textured floral-print maxi skirt, choosing to not bring her usual amount of attention to the butt area. By teaming the statement piece with a white crop and a slicked-back pony, Iggy could’ve easily been confused for another pop sensation like Swifty. (more…)

Shanina Shaik is far too hot to ever look innocent in a pair of thigh highs. This we know, but it made all the more obvious when she stepped out for Radio City’s New York Spring Spectacular on March 27.

Even though the Victoria’s Secret model wore a fairly modest frock by Gabriela Cadena, featuring a red-and-black pattern, long cut-out sleeves and a high neck, the lace-up heels instantly took her into sex-bomb territory.

TOME NYC Confirmed as Opening Show at MBFWA 2015

New York-based, Australian-born label TOME NYC has been confirmed as the opening show for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. If its New York shows are anything to go by, this is going to be a hard act to follow.

Designers Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin made the decision just last Wednesday, with the official announcement released this morning. The showcase, which is an unseen Pre-Fall collection, will take place on Monday, April 13, during the 10am time slot.

“It’s a very, very tight schedule but you’d be surprised what you can do in three weeks,” Ramon told ELLE Australia. “I think it’s going to be a beautiful collection, it’s perfect for the Australian market.”

Zayn Malik has quit One Direction. ZAYN MALIK HAS QUIT ONE DIRECTION. We know. No matter how many times we hear or say it, it still doesn’t seem like real life. One person for whom the struggle is incredibly real is pop singer Samantha Jade, the support act during 1D’s Australian tour last month. She’s just as dumbfounded as the rest of us when trying to comprehend Zayn’s departure.

Talking to The Daily Telegraph at the Australian Hair Fashion Awards last night, the ‘Cheap Cheap’ singer said she was “shocked” and found the news “really upsetting”. Here, here, sister. You’re not in this alone. (more…)

70-Year-Old Carlos Falchi Passes Away

Legendary handbag designer Carlos Falchi passed away on Friday at the age of 70. During his career, starting in the late 60s and stretching over several decades, the Brazilian-born bag maker’s unique patchwork method garnered attention from some of the industry’s most influential tastemakers, launching him from obscurity to the creator of some of the most coveted bags in fashion. His work has been seen on the arms of such iconic clientele as Jackie O, Tina Turner, Blake Lively, Mary J. Blige and Rihanna. 

Falchi’s bags have been sold at retailers like Henri Bendel and Saks Fifth Avenue, and his work has won him accolades from the Independent Handbag Designer Awards (2007), the Accessories Council of America (2004) and more. 

The designer has had his share of ups and downs in his career. After enjoying overwhelming popularity in the 80s, Falchi expanded his business too quickly and began to lose money, causing him to shut down his company in the 90s in order to get back on his feet. His label was purchased in 2009 by Windsong Brands LLC and Marvin Traub Associates, who resurrected his line as Falchi Holdings LLC, taking the designer on to once again serve at the helm of his own label.

Falchi will always remain one of the most iconic handbag and accessory makers of his generation and will be forever remembered and sorely missed.
