In Case You Missed It: What Happened in Art, Fashion, Pop Culture
Chanel Opens First Shoe-Only Store; Maddie Ziegler Debuts Clothing Line; Abercrombie & Fitch Sto...
Entertainment 21 Nov 2016

It was a week of ups and downs for many lifestyle companies. The tongue-in-cheek cosmetic brand Too Faced was bought by Estée Lauder last week. Such a change has got loyal Too Faced fans worrying about the brand’s vow to produce cruelty-free makeup. Meanwhile, trouble is on the horizon for Abercrombie & Fitch. Major stores in Asia including Hong Kong and Seoul are expected to be closed down due to a sink in sales.
Contrarily, things are starting to look up for leading luxury fashion labels. Ferragamo has a new creative and design trio, while Chanel and Loewe are both expanding their empires.
More details below…
 
#1  14-year-old Dancer Maddie Ziegler Is Now a Designer

The dancing sensation behind Sia’s music videos, Maddie Ziegler can now add “designer” to her CV along with dancer, actor and model! The young teen has recently debuted her eponymous new clothing line inspired by actress Millie Bobby Brown, who played “Eleven” in the popular hit series “Stranger Things”. With over 30 piece available, the collection hints towards a “tom boyish” feel with casual denim, comfy and stretchy joggers, and sweatshirts.

#2   Trouble ahead for Abercrombie & Fitch?

Ever since A&F’s launch, it rapidly rose to prominence, attracting all teens and young adults. How could it not? It offered casual yet stylish clothes and fit half-naked men on billboards who also stood at the entrance of each store.  Yet, like any shooting star, the hype quickly fades away. According to various news sources, A&F ’s sales are in serious decline, sinking to 13 percent for the third quarter, possibly due to their incapability to rebrand.
#3  An All Chanel Footwear Boutique Has Opened? 
Chanel's first shoe-only store opened in Ala Moana, Hawaii.
Chanel fanatics rejoice! The luxury label has recently inaugurated its very first shoe-only store in Hawaii, expected to measure up to 1,100-square-foot. This is what we call shoe heaven! #thisisreal

This is a must-see!
