In Memoriam   

Brian Dickinson, a Providence Journal columnist who kept writing after Lou Gehrig’s disease immobilized him, dies at 64.

Brian Dickinson, 64, who for years wrote eloquent columns for the Providence Journal after Lou Gehrig's disease left him unable to move anything but his eyes, died on May 4. "Faced with the cold reality of this awful illness, what was I to do?" Dickinson once told AJR (see "Writing for His Life," March 1997). "I could turn toward the wall, steep myself in self-pity and thus compound the misery of my situation.... Or...I could take a deep breath, and with the loyal support of my family, resolve to make the best of a cruel situation, trying to gain some benefit from what time remained to me." Dickinson started with the Journal as a reporter in 1964 and became editorial page editor in 1981.

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.
