Ms.-steps   

Tracy Wood steps down after four months as editor in chief of the feminist magazine to focus on investigative projects.

Four months into the job as editor in chief of Ms. (see Bylines, September), Tracy Wood steps down to concentrate on developing investigative projects at the feminist magazine. Meanwhile, production on the relaunch issue, which was to have debuted in October, is shifted from Ms.' new Los Angeles offices to a consulting firm in New York headed by Anne Mollegen Smith. Smith, a former editor of Working Woman, McCall's and Redbook, is a friend of Ms. founder and current consulting editor Gloria Steinem. "Whatever happened, it's my responsibility," says Wood, a longtime investigative reporter and editor who has spent her career in daily journalism and will only give her age as "mid-50s." "We only had 12 weeks, which is just like no time" for a relaunch, she says, especially when you're also trying to hire staff and work out the bugs in new quarters. "We could have put out a magazine, but it would not have been at the Ms. top standards." Smith says the issue should hit newsstands Christmas Eve.

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.
