DOWN with the Velour and Terry Tracksuits!

Juicy, a company which makes those track suits we all used to love, is
having some problems. Saks, Neimans, Bloomingdales, Bergdorfs, and
Nordstroms have dropped the Juicy line in a few of their stores. We
all knew that something was wrong, just nothing this bad. At first the
co-founders and co-designers Gela Nash-Taylor and Pamela Skaist-Levy
gave up their leadership roles and moved down to "nonoperating
creative roles" at Juicy. Then the company got Erin Featherson to do a
holiday collection for them.
To the loss of Saks Juicy replied "We have a 17,000-square-foot [Juicy
Couture] store at 52nd Street and Fifth Avenue. We’re committed to
Saks, but at the moment, we’re doing everything we can to build up the
business again.” Which is true, why need a Juicy department at Saks
when the Juicy store is right across the street? Bloomingdales along
with Nordstroms and Bergdorfs will all contain some assortment of
Juicy Couture accessories or the Bird collection. In my opinionm they
wont go back to carrying the brand again.
