R.I.P. Canal Jeans


Canal Jeans, where we spent our formative New York years buying countless Army bags, vintage 501’s and camel overcoats, has shut its doors. An impromptu trip to the store’s latest location near NYU shocked us– doors locked, store nearly empty and a sad handwritten “Closed” sign taped to the door. *Sigh.*

What’s Black and White and Read All Over?

Rugby Window

Okay, dumb joke, but it popped into our heads when we saw the new Rugby Ralph Lauren windows on East 12th Street this afternoon. We love the glamourization of books and libraries (though we hardly read anything but magazines any more) and anything black and white is going to last you for years and years.

Roberto Cavalli For H&M


H&M has announced that Roberto Cavalli will be their latest partner in their ongoing designer collaborations. The line will consist of 20 menswear designs and 25 womenswear pieces, including lingerie and accessories. The collection is expected in store by November 8th.

“I love fashion very much. Fashion is in my DNA. That is the reason the collaboration between H&M and Cavalli makes me excited. I try now for H&M to make pieces that are more Cavalli fantasy that you can’t recognize from any other pieces in the world, and that is it; so every girl can have Cavalli. We create for H&M one collection, is not big for sure. Not many pieces but every piece is style.”

H&M just announced that third quarter profits are up 31% and will open 95 new stores by the end of the year.
