Pieces from the Perry Ellis by Duckie Brown collection.

Perry Ellis  is Upping the Ante for Fall

The men’s department store is stepping it up this fall with a new Perry Ellis by Duckie Brown collection. The line was created for upscale specialty retailers, meant to elevate the brand for consumers and fashion insiders. A first full look of the collection will be offered during New York Fashion Week.

The collection contains thirty-two looks with more than 200 individual pieces with a focus was khaki with a modern twist. Khaki, inspired by Perry himself who wore khaki everyday, takes a palette of off-white, pink, and gray tones within the Duckie collection. Pieces are simple and are created to appeal to the “everyman” and the fashion-forward shopper. Prices begin in the 100’s and go into the low 1000’s.

Isabella Rossellini Promoting Bulgari

Isabella Rossellini will be seen in upcoming Bulgari advertisement campaigns. Within the advertisements the actress will be promoting Bulgari’s new Isabella Rossellini bags for this fall and next spring. Photographed by Annie Leibovitz at her studio in New York, the campaign pictures were inspired by British painter Meredith Frampton. This painter is known for his work as a neorealist, still life’s, and portraits that hint towards surrealism.

Within the pictures Rossellini is shown wearing red pumps while holding a red, calf-leather tote that dons a red enamel closure along with a rock crystal lock. Leibovitz mimics one of her own iconic photographs by having Rossellini wear a dark sleeveless dress that has one shoulder strap down. The advertisements will be shown in the upcoming September issue of Vanity Fair.

Discover Card Now Accepted at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman

For the small percentage that had to hide their Discover Card whenever making a purchase at Neiman Marcus or Bergdorf Goodman, you are finally able to whip it out and receive a five percent cashback bonus on all purchases made in stores. The card is only owned by about one percent of U.S. residents and totes a $495 annual fee, but the financial services of Neiman stated that the credit cards are now accepted at forty-two stores.

Neiman Marcus has had a history with the credit card, not accepting cards except their own signature charge cards until the 1980’s where they began accepting American Express. It wasn’t until nine months ago costumers could use their Visa and MasterCard in stores. Lately the store has been receiving a makeover, allowing more payment options to allow flexibility along with rebranding contemporary departments as Cusp and their upcoming partnership with Target.
