Accessories: Charles Albert Jewelry

January 29, 2010

By far Charles Albert Jewelry is one of the most unique collections I have seen in a long time. Each handcrafted piece is made with unique stones like citrine, amethyst, quartz, and crystal. The necklaces and pendants command attention, so shy women steer clear. These jewels are definitely conversation pieces.

Fashion & Style News: Bigger is Better for Victoria’s Secret Flagship

November 11, 2009
Victoria’s Secret main sales floor in the SoHo store.

Size matters for Victoria’s Secret. The brand is getting ready to launch its newly expanded 24,000 square-foot flagship store located in SoHo. The new store replaces the old one, taking up more than five times the size of its previous space.

The bra salon.

The new Victoria’s Secret space is the result of the merging of two former retail properties that were 16,000 and 8,000 square feet respectively. The brand has also opened a similar store in Chicago to expand on its fun and flirty image. The brand’s Pink label has become quite popular with VS fans, expanding to include sportswear, accessories and gifts.

Signature pink and white stripes adorn a corner.

The SoHo store is decorated with pink and white stripes as well as solid pink. Elaborate lamp fixtures and displays are also on hand to contribute to newly revamped decorum. Victoria’s Secret has even created mini-sections within the store that include a bra salon and a panty boutique. Fitting rooms are more glamorous and now have call buttons for summoning staff.

The cash wrap and beauty sections.

A special treat customers will find at the Victoria’s Secret flagship is a body scanner that captures images to ensure a perfect fit. Only this store, the Chicago Michigan Avenue flagship and one other store have this technology. The brand’s fans are sure to be captured by this unique concept.

The SoHo store opened this past Friday.

Fashion & Style News: Juicy Couture to Open Airport Shops

November 10, 2009
Juicy Couture airport shop prototype.

Frequent flyers will be getting a fashionable, retail surprise just in time for the holidays. The contemporary fashion brand, Juicy Couture, will be opening stores in the U.S. and international airport terminals across the globe beginning in December. The airport shops are a part of Juicy Couture’s plan to grow the brand internationally and transform itself into a multi-billion dollar business.

The concept for opening retail stores in airports was inspired by Juicy Couture’s co-founders, Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor’s, love of travel and shopping. Juicy Couture’s senior vice president of global licensing and international, Ellen Rodriguez, views the airport stores as a great business opportunity to capture their customers business while they are traveling. In addition to opening airport retail stores, Juicy Couture merchandise will also be featured in aircraft catalogs. Their jewelry line has already appeared in the October issue of the United Airlines catalog and their watches appear in catalogs for Cathay Pacific, Dragonair, Delta, and U.S. Airways airlines.

Another version of the airport store.

Juicy’s new airport retail stores will vary in size from 200 square foot corner spaces to large scale stand-alone boutiques. They will sell Juicy’s most popular items such as the tracksuits which will be carried in an array of colors for traveler’s convenience. Other popular items include jewelry, sunglasses, watches, logo T-shirts, and baby merchandise. The first airport store will open in Miami International Airport’s American Airlines terminal this December. Subsequently, the second store will open in the British Airways terminal at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport in January. In February, the third store will open in the Taiwan TaoYuan International Airport’s Terminal II. The fourth store is planned to open in Greece’s Athens Airport during the latter part of spring 2010.

The next time you find yourself in an airport waiting to board a flight, indulge yourself in some retail therapy courtesy of Juicy Couture.
