Carolina Garcia lands the executive editor’s job at California’s Monterey County Herald, after five years as managing editor at the San Antonio Express-News.

After five years as managing editor at the San Antonio Express-News, Carolina Garcia gets the chance to run her own newsroom as executive editor of California's Monterey County Herald. "I felt very strongly that I have a journalistic vision in San Antonio," Garcia says. But "there's a really different feeling about it when you can be the editor of a paper." At the 35,000-circulation Knight Ridder daily she joins Publisher Jayne Speizer, who came on board in February, in trying to figure out how to serve a readership that includes the Pebble Beach superrich, Monterey's tourist traders and a rapidly growing Hispanic population, especially in agricultural Salinas. Garcia, who turns 49 this month, is known for her work to promote diversity in news coverage and in newsrooms. The Texas native says she'll miss San Antonio--where "news just falls from the sky."

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.
