Harrods And Dior Do It Again

The well-known London department store, Harrods and iconic fashion brand, Dior have been linked for nearly 60 years now, and time hasn’t seen to slow them down one bit. The two companies are once again partnering up for a month-long collaboration that begins this week.

Dior at Harrods is marked by “nine separate pop-ups spanning an exhibition, displays of savior-faire, dozens of exclusive products and even a 50-seat cafe serving lobster club sandwiches and Dior cupcakes iced with illustrations of its iconic fashions.”

A series of pop-ups across the globe have been set up with key retailers. This can be seen as Dior’s way of ringing in a new regime under Raf Simons.

This exhibit will collect works of art from various artists who were asked to display their interpretation of the world of shoes.” Among the others, writers and poets Hamid Ziarati, Michele Mari and Elisa Biagini wrote new fairy tales; Argentino-Italian composer Luis Bacalov created a score for the exhibition overture, and Milanese visual artist Liliana Moro looked at Charles Perrault’s Donkeyskin for her creation.”

An Illegitimate Partnership

Costco Wholesale Corp. is firing back at the lawsuit that they were served with by Tiffany & Co., after the high-end jeweler claimed that the Corp. was selling unauthorized Tiffany-branded engagement rings in its stores.

Costco denied ever being involved in the selling of unauthorized Tiffany-branded rings. They claimed that the words “Tiffany setting” were used to describe the type of ring setting that was being offered. They also claimed that the term was “generic.” As stated in their counterclaims, Costco said “the word Tiffany is a generic term for ring settings comprising multiple slender prongs extending upward from a base to hold a single gemstone.” The wholesale retailer also said that they have been selling unbranded rings with Tiffany settings for sometime now.
