Clippings: Juicy Couture Co-Founders Jump Ship Edition



    - Gela Nash-Taylor and Pamela Skaist-Levy, the co-founders of the much-mocked-but-ridiculously-profitable Juicy Couture, are officially leaving the company. The duo sold the brand to Liz Claborne in 2003 and have made a fortune (more than $200 million) since then, but apparently they're looking to "do other things." The rumor was that the two weren't happy with the new direction the company's been taking under the parent company, which has been struggling of late, but the two insist the're working on a TV show, a book, and a movie.

    - A tipster reports a Target sign facing the FDR in East Harlem that reads "opening July 2010," but also wonders: "Can Costco hold out that long?" We wonder, too. [Racked]

    - Cindy Crawford's latest cover for Harper's Bazaar proves the supermodel's not only still got it, she blows pretty much everyone else away. [Fab Sugar]

    - J. Crew is selling men's Levi's 501 jeans in exclusive washes online and in stores. We've got to admit, Levi's is just one of those classic brands that we'll never, ever get tired of. We're considering snapping up a few pairs in the smaller sizes for ourselves! [J. Crew]

    - We're not entirely sure what the next act will be for wunderkind Olivier Theyskens, but apparently he has three or four collections completely ready to go, down to the chosen fabrics. [WSJ]

    - Fashion Week hasn't even started yet and the Post is already naming the club that everyone will be going to: soon-to-open Good Units at the Hudson Hotel. [NY Post]
