It’s Not Too Late to Save on Amazon Prime Preorders

If you buy something through this post, IGN may get a share of the sale. For more, read our Terms of Use.

If you haven’t heard, Amazon is replacing its 20-percent off preorder deal with $ 10 credit “on select games.” That’s bad news for those of us who preordered primarily for the discount. With Gamers Club Unlocked winding down, and Amazon’s preorder pricing coming to a close on August 28, deals on preorders are going to be harder to come by.

However, if you preorder games now, and you’re a Prime member, you can still lock in the discount on a tremendous selection of upcoming titles. We’re about to turn the corner into the busiest release window of the year, so if you want to ensure your 20% savings on upcoming games through Amazon, here’s a list of the most notable eligible upcoming games and links to buy them.

Joyce Azria’s New Line Rohb Adapts to Amazon

Joyce Azria has proven adept at adaptation, having grown up in her family’s BCBG Max Azria business, then exiting in 2016 to launch her own direct-to-consumer young contemporary brand Avec Les Filles as shoppers’ preferences shifted to branded, designer-driven, omnichannel merchandise.
Now she’s delving deeper into the online space — specifically Amazon — with a new, under-$ 50 basics brand called Rohb, which made its debut in beta mode on the e-commerce behemoth this week, with its own shoppable site coming soon.

A look from Joyce Azria’s new line, Rohb

While some brands may see Amazon as a black hole or point of no return, Azria thinks it’s an opportunity to expand her retail universe, which includes occasion dresses, activewear and jewelry extensions for Avec Les Filles, a low-caffeine energy drink called Miron that’s also sold on Amazon Prime, and a podcast aptly called “Success Redesigned.”
“I’m already on Amazon buying home staples, so for fashion, I wanted to keep it uncomplicated, too. Women are already buying basics on Amazon when they’re buying diapers or trash bags,” she said.
While she stops short of calling Rohb an Amazon brand, instead noting that it’s a distribution platform and the brand will have its own direct-to-consumer

Fashion for Conservation Debuts Campaign to Protect Amazon Rainforest

Fashion for Conservation presented two collections during London Fashion Week that were inspired by the Amazonian rain forest to raise awareness about the damaged ecosystem. Each collection featured zero waste and included materials from end of bolt textiles from interior design companies and upcycled pieces from donated clothes.
Kent-based designer Kalikas Armour opened the Rainforest Runway show with a collection inspired by the indigenous tribes who are living, and subsequently suffering, within the rain forest as the ecosystem declines. He sourced ethically made fabrics from around Europe and produced the one-off pieces in his studio. The black and gold collection was focused on eveningwear including shimmery gowns in varying lengths, sweeping opera coats and sequined suits with gold floral motifs.
Houston-based designer René Garza for the Magpies & Peacocks nonprofit design house utilized off-cuts and end of bolt textiles and discarded clothes and tablecloths and gave them a new life as beautifully draped dresses — some were long and fluid while others were nipped at the waist or featured plissé detailing. The show closed with a billowing yellow gown that started life as a tablecloth.

Perry Ellis Partners With Amazon Alexa

Perry Ellis is tapping into the voice activation market.
The men’s wear brand has teamed with Amazon to create an “Ask Perry Ellis” skill, or a set of built-in capabilities, that works with the voice-activated Amazon Alexa device to offer styling suggestions for various occasions.
“Over the years, we’ve seen men’s dressing habits evolve from wearing clothes for one specific occasion to the need to wear clothes for many different occasions,” said Melissa Worth, Perry Ellis’ president, before presenting the new technology on Thursday morning at The Standard Hotel in New York’s East Village. “At Perry Ellis, we are committed to providing solutions that are going to help him feel comfortable, look stylish and be appropriately dressed for any occasion on his calendar.”
According to Worth, after surveying a group of men, the team at Perry Ellis found that 81 percent of them had challenges getting dressed and 45 percent said the biggest struggle was getting dressed for a specific event and making sure they were appropriately dressed.
Perry Ellis is hoping to remedy this with “Ask Perry Ellis,” which allows men to ask Alexa what to wear for a particular event — the skill is programmed to respond to 150 different occasions ranging

The Blend of the Traditional and Contemporary Dominates Amazon India Fashion Week

NEW DELHI, India — While the fashion  silhouette changed this season at the 29th edition of Amazon India Fashion Week Winter 2017, held in association with Maybelline New York, the shows opened with a focus on how to blend traditional craft with contemporary design.
The first show of the week, featuring 13 designers, focused on using handlooms in modern fashion. A collaborative effort between the Fashion Design Council of India and the Handloom School supported by retailer Good Earth showcased work by designers including Rohit Bal, Rajesh Pratap, Singh Suket Dhir, Raw Mango, Akaaro, Antar-Agni, Eka, Pero and Urvashi Kaur.
As Sunil Sethi, president of the Fashion Design Council of India, observed, the event dedicated to India’s handlooms and textiles did indeed make a “giant leap in the legacy to promote the homespun.”
Anita Lal, founder of The Good Earth Co., said, “We’ve never participated in fashion shows. But we realized that in order to popularize the concept of handloom it has to be seen as something desirable, something that has a certain appeal to younger people, which is why we did the fashion show and sponsored.”

CFDA Stays Positive Despite Loss of Amazon Sponsorship

New York Fashion Week: Men’s may have wrapped up its most successful edition to date last week but it’s already facing a hurdle for next season: Amazon Fashion, which has been the principal sponsor since the shows started two years ago, has ended its association.
The decision comes even though the web giant is making an evermore aggressive push into fashion, and views it as one of its fastest-growing categories.
Despite Amazon’s move, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, organizers of the shows, is putting a positive spin on things, pointing to the ongoing commitment of at least two of the other sponsors — Cadillac and men’s grooming brand Axe.
“This season of NYFW: Men’s was a creative and commercial success,” the CFDA said in a statement to WWD. “We look forward to the next season taking place July 10 to 13. NYFW: Men’s continues to thrive because of the ongoing commitment of partners such as Cadillac and Axe.”
Samsung is also a sponsor and its participation will continue, said Mark Beckham, business director of Fashion Week for CFDA.
Beckman stressed that even though Amazon’s two-year contract with the men’s shows has ended, the company continues to work with the organization on other projects. He also

Run-DMC Files $50 Million Lawsuit Against Amazon and Wal-Mart for Trademark Infringement

Attorneys for the Run-D.M.C. brand have filed a $ 50 million lawsuit against Amazon Inc., Wal-Mart Stores Co., Jet.com and a few other outlets for trademark infringement and trademark dilution, among other things.
First reported by TMZ Thursday, the legal filing was made in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
The complaint, which includes numerous images of Run-D.M.C.-inspired products as they appeared on Amazon’s and Wal-Mart’s respective sites, alleges that the retailers are advertising, selling, manufacturing, promoting and distributing multiple Run-D.M.C. styled products. Eyewear, hats, T-shirts, wallets and patches are among the items referenced, some of which are said to use the Run-D.M.C. trademark. The complaint charges that the products being sold “confuse the public and suggest that Run-D.M.C. endorses the products.”
Homegrown in Hollis, Queens by Joseph Simmons, Darryl McDaniels and Jason Mizell, Run-D.M.C. helped define hip hop culture in the Eighties. Mizell, better known as “Jam Master Jay,” was shot and killed in his recording studio in Queens in 2002. Simmons, whose brother is the serial entrepreneur Russell, is widely recognized as “Reverend Run.”
Run-D.M.C. has a registered trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The lawsuit claims that the Run-D.M.C. brand has produced revenue in excess
