Natalie Massenet Has a Simple Fix to Correct the Fashion Cycle

Have you ever wondered why designers are showing spring and summer clothes in September or October, and winter clothes in February or March? During a livestream interview with Imran Amed of the Business of Fashion, the question was posed to Natalie Massenet of Net-a-Porter who suggested that everyone just skip a season, bring the shows directly to consumers who would be able to purchase the clothes weeks, instead of months, later and get rid of the front row in exchange for trade shows.

Marc Jacobs is the Latest to Finally Relent to the Internet

Marc Jacobs is the Latest to Finally Relent to the Internet

The Marc Jacobs fashion label is worth an estimated $5 million, but up to this point the brand had no e-commerce store of its own. The top American fashion designer’s lack of online retail until now is actually more interesting than the recent news that marcjacobs.com will begin selling clothes this September.

We Have a Hunch About Your Twitter Followers

If you’re a technophile, you already know that Hunch is Flickr co-founder Caterina Fake’s latest company, and that it makes pretty accurate decisions about what you’re like based on how you answer a few questions. Hunch’s latest time killing, but fun, service is a Twitter followers analyzer that makes educated guesses about the people following you.

@Karl_Lagerfeld followers: prefer smaller portions of food that are arranged well, have dated or hooked up with someone they met online, choose the New York Times over the Wall Street Journal or USA Today as their free hotel paper of choice, can make reservations in 2 or 3 languages (only at restaurants that don’t overfeed you, of course), aren’t reading Vogue for the articles, think All-You-Can-Eat buffets are gross, are Mac people, and like celebrity gossip, reality TV and awards shows among other things.

Where the Wealthy Shop Online [Infographics]

In terms of volume online, Macy’s attracts more visitors earning $100,000+ than higher end department stores Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus combined (Anna Wintour’s Fashion’s Night Out appearance at Macy’s last year suddenly makes sense).  Though they probably aren’t the first name you’d associate with designer fashion, there are a massive number of people who match […]
