News: Ivanka Names Top Exec, Sartorialist Gets Off The Blog, And More
3. Marc Jacobs’ publicist Tim Mark Garcia is facing extradition to the Philippines on charges of “plunder.” We’re none too sure what that means, but we know how to help Mr. Garcia beat the heat if he is indeed sent packing. [NYP]
4. Jane Aldridge, teen shoe blogger and creator of a shoe line for Urban Outfitters, faces off with her mother in Vogue. We like the spreads, but we appreciate her accessible shoe line more. [Sea of Shoes]
She may be just 17, but two weeks ago, J. Aldridge announced her partnership with Urban Outfitters on a footwear line called J. Aldridge by Sea of Shoes.
The capsule collection— a “sort of Victoriana meets gladiator warrior” — is now available online for pre-order at urbanoutfitters.com.
While we’re not particularly fond of the shoes in general, and actually find the peep-toe of this otherwise attractive lace-up boot ($158) a little nonsensical (won’t your toes get cold, wet, squished?), we don’t mind the studded gladiator ($98) to jazz up a simple dress.
