Rihanna to lead new LVMH fashion house
May 10, 2019 | Financial Times | by Harriet Agnew in Paris.

Pop star will launch a new line of ready-to-wear luxury clothing, footwear and accessories brand named Fenty, becoming the first woman to create an original brand at LVMH. This is significant because it is one of the most high-profile creative tie-ups to date between a celebrity and a luxury group, and illustrates the lucrative potential of celebrities to draw attention — and sales — through Instagram (Rihanna has 70.5m followers). .....LVMH said Fenty would be “centered on Rihanna, developed by her, and takes shape with her vision . . . including commerciality and communication of the brand”....Rihanna joins other singers such as Beyoncé in launching her own clothing line.....

Growing a Different Apple - The New York Times
January 2, 2017 | NYT | By Vindu Goel

Founded in 2014 by three former senior managers from Apple’s iPod and iPhone groups, Pearl has tried to replicate what its leaders view as the best parts of Apple’s culture, like its fanatical dedication to quality and beautiful design. But the founders also consciously rejected some of the less appealing aspects of life at Apple, like its legendary secrecy and top-down management style.

The start-up, which makes high-tech accessories for cars, holds weekly meetings with its entire staff. Managers brief them on coming products, company finances, technical problems, even the presentations made to the board....Pearl’s siren song was appealing: Make the roads safer by giving tens of millions of older autos the same high-tech safety features that the newest models have.....Like Apple, though, Pearl is playing the long game. Engineers are already testing self-parking technology and other driver-assistance features for future products. So far, the company has raised $50 million from prominent venture capital firms, including Accel, Shasta Ventures and Venrock, but Mr. Gardner said it would need to raise more money in 2017.

Statement Socks | Dapper Discourse
keep in mind these few rules-of-thumb for sock buying and care:

-First and foremost: Don’t buy cotton. Either buy wool or a synthetic blend. Cotton is moisture-absorbant, which dampens the socks and increases the rate of wear (Not to mention the inevitable foot odor).

-Wool has the advantage of being moisture-wicking. Also, throw the notion of wool being a “winter-only” material out the window, it’s dated thinking. Modern advances in the textile industry provides us with high-quality, fine/ultrafine wool that won’t choke your feet. Itchy wool is just cheap wool.

-Despite popular belief, socks aren’t actually one size fits all. They are typically 1 or 2 sizes larger than your shoe size. Poor fit will wreck your socks so mind the fit. Additionally, poor shoe fit can actually ruin your socks quicker as well.

-Always hang dry your nicer socks. The heat from the dryer will wreck the elastic and will unravel the knit. For ultimate longevity, hand wash them as well.

Have Configurator, Will Sell Accessories
August 2010 | Ward's Dealer Business pg. 29 | by Steve Finlay
A study at more than 120 car dealerships indicates selling
accessories to new-vehicle buyers is enhanced by the right timing and a visualization of potential enhancements. In izmocars' study, car buyers were much more likely to buy accessories when using an online configurator allowing them to interactively customize their new car at the time of purchase.
One in two buyers using izmocars' AddOnAuto configurator purchased accessories, up from one in 10 before, the study indicates.
Dealers historically have struggled to
sell accessories. Dealership accessory sales account for 10%-17% of total sales in a S32 billion accessories market heavily dominated by independent chains and mail-order/online outlets.
"Dealerships actually have powerful, built-in advantages to 'own' far more of the accessories market than they do," says Sidney Haider, president of izmocars accessories division.
"Psychologically, consumers are far more likely to spend on enhancements at that exciting time of purchase, and the customer is physically in the showroom at that sweet-spot moment," he says.

I'll Be Back -- Delaying Retirement -- Future Planning |
Feb 1, 2008 | Inc. Magazine | By Leigh Buchanan |

Business owners may dream of kicking back, all the way back, after years of full-throttle company building. Yet many return to the fray, suffering adrenaline withdrawal and lured by new opportunities. No one has quantified this breed's failure rate when it comes to permanent retirement. But numerous entrepreneurs tell the same tale: "I sold the business and figured I had it made, so I retired. That lasted about three months."...Running a company leaves scant opportunity to personally assist immunization programs in Africa or build irrigation systems in rural Latin America. Yet those are the sorts of experiences that change people and supply direction for meaningful lives, according to Marc Freedman, founder and president of Civic Ventures and author of Encore: Finding Work That Matters in the Second Half of Life. "Join the Peace Corps. Live in a part of the world where there's tremendous need," advises Freedman. "This is your chance to lift yourself out of your comfort zone....For more ideas and insights on creative ways to recharge, take a look at the following books: Encore: Finding Work That Matters in the Second Half of Life, by Marc Freedman; Don't Retire, Rewire!, by Jeri Sedlar and Rick Miners; and Retire Smart, Retire Happy, by Nancy K. Schlossberg.

Mad for hats
Written by Derek Dotto

It's good news, then, that modern-day milliners like Frenel Morris at
Still Life in New York and Stephen Temkin of the custom Leon Drexler
label in Toronto handcraft and block old-school trilbies, fedoras and
the like from quality fur felts - for men and women - lining them in
butter-soft silk. Have a look at Still Life's bestselling Langston with
its strong pinch and teardrop crease, and its band made from a swatch of
banker's suit fabric. It has a shallower crown than its hat
predecessors of the mid-20th century, which makes it fresh for 2011, the
kind of hat a hip-hop mogul and a Bay Streeter could bond over. Let us
raise our pinkies in a ring-a-ding salute.

Shoes, Handbags, Sunglasses, Accessories: The Changed State of Luxury
September 9, 2009 | WSJ. Magazine | By Lisa Bannon.
World-wide accessories sales, the engine driving the explosive growth of
the luxury-goods industry over the past decade, are projected to
decline 10 percent in 2009, according to Bain & Co., the first real
decline since Bain began tracking the sector in 1995. “Consumers have
lost 40 to 60 percent of their assets broadly in the U.S. Long-term,
they’ll start spending again, but not at the levels they spent before,”
