Oh No! @XoBetseyJohnson Files for Bankruptcy!

20120427-103039.jpg

Oh say it ain’t so! New York City based fashion designed label Betsey Johnson LLC files for chapter 11 bankruptcy yesterday, citing declining sales and profitability. They also cite that the economy had a devastating impact on higher end fashion, and that they’ve been seeking offers to buy all or parts of it business. Basically they have not been able to find an investor to save them from all their debt.

In the filing, the company said sales at its retail stores have fallen more than 20 percent and profitability has more than halved since 2007. The chain sells a mix of rock-n-roll, bright funky neon colors and hippie-themed clothing, tutus, frills, cocktail dresses and accessories that are targeted for the younger hipster group.

Betsey Johnson LLC, which runs over 65 Betsey Johnson retail stores worldwide and also sells products to department store operators like Nordstrom Inc and Macy’s Inc. Unfortunately,while still in this crappy economy more then 300 people will lose their jobs as the chain closes its Betsey Johnson stores. When will it end?

Fully-Stocked @Gucci Shoes @ DSW!!

Designer Shoe Warehouse

Gucci shoe fans will be thrilled to know that the DSW in Union Square, NYC has received a large shipment of Gucci shoes. DSW is promoting the discount as 40% off.
Gucci has updated their signature hardware and logo on their current style shoes. The DSW selection is nicely discounted but reflect the old styling. (So, please don’t get mad it isn’t the latest) can we say retro Gucci (the make Air Jordan Retro’s why no?). For your information: DSW is offering a large variety of styles and a full range of sizes.
Flats and pumps are priced at $299. Current versions retail range from $400 to almost $600. Summer loafers, in a rainbow of colors, are $230 from a retail price of almost $600.

Do remember that these styles are a bit dated but DSW is also known for their quick markdowns. We wouldn’t give it more than six weeks until most of the stock is blown out at $199. Also, be on the look out for coupons and additional promotions. DSW is very generous with their loyal customers.

You can browse a sampling of the selection and prices online here.
