Company Press Release?   

By Unknown
     


Your article on the San Diego Union-Tribune spinning off its investigative unit is almost surreal in the way you simply buy wholesale the official line of Editor Karin Winner and Lorie Hearn, the head of the new Watchdog Institute. First, I worked there for 35 years before retiring as television critic in 2006. Winner and Hearn have long shared a close friendship, and many in the newsroom believe this arrangement was created to save Hearn's job during layoffs at the paper. And you did not ask why, if Karin and the U-T were so determined to keep investigative reporting alive, she laid off Dave Hasemyer, who for 25 or 30 years has been the paper's single most dogged, determined and productive investigative reporter. Your story could easily be the company's own press release on the subject.

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.
