Lauren Conrad Is Launching a Maternity Line for Kohl's [People]
Soon-to-be first-time mom Lauren Conrad is launching her own maternity line for Kohl's. The collection will be an expansion of her LC Lauren Conrad label, and will drop on Wednesday with an offering of dresses, jeggings and tops. Prices have yet to be disclosed. "One of the things I really struggled with when I was shopping was that I wanted to maintain my everyday style, but I had trouble finding the types of pieces available in maternity collections," Conrad told People. "So I wanted to cater towards our existing customer who just happens to have a new shape, but still wants to dress in line with her style that she has had for years."
Puma Loses First Round of Infringement Case Against Forever21 [WWD]
A federal judge in California has refused to order a preliminary injunction against Forever21 after the retailer was accused by Puma of ripping off Rihanna's Fenty x Puma footwear designs, including a suede creeper, a faux-fur slide and a satin bow slide. The judge claimed that there was no "actual evidence of irreparable injury." After Puma filed the suit in April, Forever21 filed a request for dismissal, calling Puma's suit "thinly veiled anticompetitive intent."
Thom Browne Covers Surface Magazine [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
Thom Browne covers the sixth-annual American Influence issue of Surface magazine, which celebrates the influence of American designers and creatives in the art world. Browne, who is based in New York, opens up about not finding fashion until after college (he attended Notre Dame) and a brief attempt to become an actor in Los Angeles in the '90s. He added of his current creative process, "I don’t reference fashion for my collections, and I consciously don’t stay up and pay attention to it. For me, I feel like it just keeps it easier when you don’t know as much. Ignorance is bliss."
