Editorial director James Fallon’s take on which retailers are succeeding this shopping season.
The winners and losers of third-quarter earnings, according to WWD.
The chain is relying on the sale of striped items by everyone from Balenciaga to J. Crew to undermine Gucci’s trademarks.
The Madewell business continued to expand rapidly, but not enough to offset weakness at J. Crew.
Buyer’s remorse is partly responsible for the bumper crop of new garments with tags sent to online resale sites.
Despite a bigger loss, J. Crew Group executives see progress in repairing the business.
The J. Crew brand continues to struggle while Madewell gains ground.
The retailer said allegations surrounding its recent debt restructuring aren’t worthy of further litigation.
