An Impressive Final Act   

Sidney Harman's effort to resurrect Newsweek. Posted: Wed, April 13, 2011

Sidney Harman always played big.

And that was certainly true of the co-inventor of "hi-fi" in his late-in-life foray into journalism.

Newsweek was sinking fast. Harman, who died Tuesday night at 92, came along and gave it a chance.

The magazine was bleeding serious money, money its owner, the Washington Post Co., could no longer afford to lose. So last summer Harman forked over a dollar, picked up Newsweek's liabilities and embarked on providing a future for the struggling newsweekly.

It was quite a gamble. People had been predicting the demise of the newsweeklies, at least some of them, for years. They lacked a niche. Newspapers years ago had embraced the analytic, put-it-into-perspective articles that were their raison d'être. There was smart commentary all over the Internet.

Time, the big kahuna of the genre, continues to chug along. But U.S. News & World Report is pretty much gone as a print entity, and Newsweek was both a financial albatross and an artistic disappointment.

What to do? Harman decided to merge his newly acquired symbol of played-out old media with an equally vivid symbol of emerging media: The Daily Beast, an online amalgam of aggregation and original content owned by mogul Barry Diller and presided over by It-Editor-for-Life Tina Brown -- with Brown at the controls of the magazine. (Of course The Daily Beast is also losing tons of money, but whatever.)

Will this marriage last? Will Newsweek rise from the ashes? Who knows?

But give Sidney Harman lots of credit for giving it a shot.



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.
