The piece: Juicy Couture Leopard Mitt Gloves
The price: $98
Why we want it: Wintery weather has caught a lot of us by surprise (it's not supposed to dip this low until I've had my Thanksgiving dinner, thank you), and when I went to dust off my collection of mittens and gloves, I was disappointed to see boring black pair after boring brown pair. So, when I spotted this pair, I knew it would infuse the proper level of print and color into my outerwear accessories. Yes, there's the typical black faux-leather gloves, but they're attached to a fun leopard-print knit — a perfect two-for-one that adds not just an extra layer of warmth but a bold style statement to heat up any cold day.
Before she was a trendsetter, Jamie Chung was a child of the '80s who spent the holidays on the slopes with Mom and Dad. As she preps her ultimate holiday outfit on Juicy Couture, she's taking time out to share an exclusive snap — if you ask us, Jamie had style even back then — and one of her favorite holiday memories . . .
"Learning how to ski! I was about eight or nine when my parents took me on my first ski trip to Tahoe! They bought my sister and I matching hot pink jumpers which really came in handy. I was going down a hill and veered off course into the powder snow. I got stuck. My mom had to trek up the hill and into knee-deep snow in between the trees to get me out! Thanks to the hot pink jumper she was able to spot me! For the next 10 years it became a family tradition to spend our holidays skiing in Tahoe."
OK, Kate Moss. You win. Your Halloween costume beats our efforts for Day of the Dead. So unless you are loaning us Jamie Hince as arm candy, we've gone out to find our own solutions to celebrate the iconic post-Halloween holiday. If you want to go as bold as Kate, we don't blame you, but that keychain below is looking mighty good to us.
Whether you're counting down the minutes until kickoff or are more of a begrudging guest, there's an undeniable fact about a football game: you've gotta wear something. The tailgate alone can involve a span of activities that requires a look that's practical but cute, and the mixed audience means it's not the time to break out your most fashion-forward purchases.
Juicy Couture has finally found a new owner. On Monday, Fifth and Pacific (the firm that used to be called Liz Claiborne) announced that it sold the company to Authentic Brands Group for $195 million, according to WWD.
ABG, which owns everything from Judith Leiber and President Obama's favored clothier Hart Schaffner Marx to the brand rights for Marilyn Monroe, was among a number of firms that competed to buy Juicy Couture. Even the brand's founders, Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor, had been working with a private equity group to try to bring the label back under their control.
This sale is part of a long-term plan for Fifth and Pacific to focus solely on its Kate Spade brand. It still has Lucky Brand, a denim company, to sell now that the Juicy Couture transaction is complete.
