London based ASOS already offers 8 stores localized for the UK, US, Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Italy. Those stores have proved beneficial, as international sales buoyed the company against a drop-off in UK sales, but don’t look for expansion into rapidly growing emerging economies until the company has IT in order.

Using the skirt as the starting point, chime in and let us know in the comments what your style formula would look like.
We’re thankful for all of our lovely readers, and we’re sure you’re thankful for many things. While you’re stuffing away the turkey in celebration, why not pay homage to your deliciously departed feathered friend with a feather trimmed or covered purse?
Alexander McQueen’s knuckleduster clutches are always eyecatching, but we’re particularly fond of this version in tortoise shell print leather for a few reasons.
Last year we covered Fashion’s Night Out from Paris, where we caught up with Carine Roitfeld, to London and New York.
