True Religion Files for Bankruptcy

True Religion has filed for bankruptcy protection today as the brand failed to evolved with fashion! The “high end” denim company have listed 100 million to 500 in assets and liabilities. 
I’m assuming the collaboration with NBA Star Russell Westbrook wasn’t profitable either. 
With that being said…While True Religion is blaming the decline of sales in brick and mortar stores and boom in online sales as there reason a they’ve seen a decline…NO ONE WAS EVEN BUYING TRUE RELIGION ANYMORE! 
All they had to do was go back to the drawing board and redesign the denim! Personally, I’ve never owned a pair of true religion and found the brand to be obnoxious and reminiscent of Ed Hardy but fashion is always evolving and you have to be aware of that getting into this business.

Balmain/L’Oréal Collaboration


I see myself in Balmain by Loreal! 
Loreal and Balmain have teamed up for a for a lipstick collaboration that will have us all outside of our neighborhood walgreens or rite aid. The 3 theme 12 shade collection will debut in September at Paris Fashion Week and an exclusive “jewel edition” that will be carried at Balmain.

“With L’Oréal Paris, Rousteing brings the raw creativity with which he has reinvented Balmain, from the Paris runways to his first ever beauty collection,” L’Oréal and Balmain said in a joint statement. “Accessible beauty and high fashion now have a symbolic meeting point: This new Color Riche limited collection with Balmain Paris.”

Finally they are getting it right. Not all of us have the deep pockets to buy a $40 lipstick. I’m sure sick of it!
