NEW YORK — Retailers are hoping consumers will be as optimistic as New York’s designers come spring.
New York Fashion Week blew through town with easy, effortless and colorful collections, a welcome development for retailers (all except Marc Jacobs, that is). Store executives used words like “fresh” and “optimistic” to describe a host of new items women presumably don’t own and, they hope, will spur the increasingly picky consumer to buy apparel for a change rather than only accessories.
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)
