JONES' SPECIAL MOVE: Olivia Ziegler has joined Jones Apparel Group's career collection as senior vice president of merchandising for special sizes. In this newly created position, Ziegler will report to Mark Mendelson, president of merchandising for Jones Career Collection. Ziegler was most recently vice president and general merchandise manager for Talbots, where she was involved in planning, merchandising and developing strategy. Peter Boneparth, president and chief executive officer, said, "The extension into special sizes is a natural progression for the Jones New York label. Olivia's appointment will allow us to target this consumer segment with fresh product."MILLA TIME: Milla Jovovich has been tapped as the new face of Celine for its fall ready-to-wear campaign. The actress/model will also appear in Celine's catalogs, which are distributed to more than 80,000 customers. Hair slicked back, Jovovich was shot by Vincent Peters. Some images are head shots showing only a collar of clothing at most. Jean-Marc Loubier, president and chief executive of Celine, said Jovovich was chosen because she's an "independent, modern and provocative woman with international acclaim."TRADE TALKS SET: European Trade Commissioner Pascal Lamy will return to Washington this week to discuss with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Zoellick whether progress has been made in disputes over steel and U.S. business taxes, according to EU officials. The European Commission is poised to impose retaliatory sanctions on U.S. products, including apparel, in both cases. An EU spokesman said Friday that the World Trade Organization has pushed back the date to mid-July for a decision on the amount of sanctions the EU would be entitled to impose on the U.S., which lost a dispute over tax breaks for U.S. exporters. The EU has sought WTO permission to retaliate on more than $4 billion worth of U.S. goods. Separately, the EU has drawn up a list of products valued at over $900 million on which it is poised to slap retaliatory duties against the U.S. because of punitive tariffs the U.S. placed on global steel imports in March.
