Handoff in Houston   

Jeff Cohen, editor of the Albany Times Union, takes the helm at the Houston Chronicle, as Editor Jack Loftis retires.

Jeff Cohen, editor of the Albany Times Union since 1994, returns to his hometown to lead the Houston Chronicle, the only surviving newspaper of the three he grew up reading. He succeeds Editor Jack Loftis, who retires in July after 15 years in the job and 37 years at the paper. "It's really just an honor to be able to give something back to the community that nurtured me," says Cohen, 47. He began his career in 1976 as a sportswriter at the now-defunct San Antonio Light. Loftis, 67, who is also associate publisher, became editor after Hearst bought the Chronicle in 1987. He says he's proud of having helped transform it into a "more objective" source of news than it had been under the previous owner. One thing he'd like to do over: the Enron story, where the paper reacted too slowly.

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
