MILAN — The growth of the U.S. economy may be grinding to a halt and dragging Europe down with it, but Italian fashion houses are still upbeat about business in 2008.

Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
