Unsung Heroes   


Really liked your story on media in New Orleans ("The Ties That Bind," August/September), but I was sad to see you didn't include my former paper, New Orleans CityBusiness, which is also chronicling the rebuilding. Its corporate parent, Dolan Media, made a commitment to stay open in New Orleans and sent key staff members to offices in Baltimore and Baton Rouge until they could get back to the newsroom in Metairie. I know obviously it's not on par with what the Pic reporters went through, but it would have been worth a mention as would have WWOZ, the most important community radio station in New Orleans, which relied on archived recordings from its fans around the country to fill the very empty air in the months after the storm and has far fewer resources than the corporate-owned stations you mentioned.

But aside from all that, very, very good piece.

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.
