Randa Reiterates Commitment to Acquire Perry Ellis

Four days after the special committee of the Perry Ellis International Inc. board reaffirmed its support for George Feldenkreis’ offer to take the company private, Randa Accessories laid out why it believes shareholders should line up behind its offer, which is slightly higher: $ 28 a share, as compared with Feldenkreis’ $ 27.50 a share.
In a letter sent to the special committee this morning, Jeffrey Spiegel, Randa’s chief executive officer, wrote: “We were disappointed to read of your decision not to engage with us regarding our compelling proposal that would provide superior value to your shareholders than your existing merger agreement with George Feldenkreis (the insider transaction).” 
Spiegel said the deal with Feldenkreis “expressly permits the special committee to engage in discussions to clarify the terms of any unsolicited proposal it receives and, further, to engage in negotiations with regards to such a proposal that is reasonably expected to lead to a superior proposal.”
Yet the committee has “not once directly contacted us or our representatives.” Instead, the committee’s decision has been delivered via press release, Randa said.
As a result, Randa said it would address what it said were inaccuracies in the committee’s statement last week. That included the committee’s questioning of its financing ability. Spiegel said

George Feldenkreis Reaffirms Offer to Acquire Perry Ellis Shares

PUSHING AHEAD: Former Perry Ellis International Inc. chairman George Feldenkreis in a letter dated March 9 reaffirmed his offer to acquire all shares of the company he doesn’t already own in a “going private” transaction. As reported, Feldenkreis is working with Fortress Credit Advisors on an offered valued at $ 430 million, or $ 27.50 a share.
The letter was disclosed in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Monday, a Schedule 13D/A.
Feldenkreis also is seeking a 30-day extension of the deadline to submit shareholder nominations of directors at the company’s 2018 annual shareholders’ meeting later this year. He also indicated that he would still nominate a slate of directors for election to the board in the event his request is denied.
Feldenkreis’ non-binding offer of Feb. 6 came six months after he was pushed out as executive chairman. He led the company for more than 50 years and served as chairman and chief executive officer since 1993. The family’s ownership stake in the company is valued at more than $ 100 million. His son, Oscar, is currently ceo at Perry Ellis.
The Perry Ellis board on Feb. 26 authorized a special committee to evaluate the proposal. At the time, the company said there was

Perry Ellis Shares Down After Q3 Report

Shares of Perry Ellis International Inc. fell 3.4 percent in midmorning trading Thursday after the company posted third-quarter results that essentially met Wall Street’s expectations.

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

Tracee Ellis Ross Looks Like An Angel In This Playfully Sheer Gown

There’s sheer, and then there’s sheer perfection.

Tracee Ellis Ross followed up a fringe-tastic showing earlier this week with a stunning, transparent mock-neck gown with a tiered skirt and bustier-style bra at Essence’s Black Women in Hollywood awards on Thursday.

Ross, who joined the likes of Viola Davis, Issa Rae and Janelle Monae at the star-studded event, one-upped her own style with a flawless hair and makeup look. We love this combo of updo, pink lip and fierce brow. 

The look’s playful nature was not lost on Ross, who captioned a photo of herself from the event “#DollBaby .”

Louis Vuitton Designs Case for Rugby World Cup 2015 Webb Ellis Prize

CASE WORK: Louis Vuitton is making its debut on the rugby pitch with the creation of a bespoke case to hold the Webb Ellis Cup, rugby’s greatest prize. Vuitton’s latest trunk will make its debut at the Rugby World Cup final on Oct. 31 in Twickenham, England.
Handmade at the brand’s Asnières workshop near Paris, the travel case has been designed to contain the sterling silver and gold-plate trophy. It is covered in Louis Vuitton’s monogram canvas and has been fitted with the company’s signature brass lock and corners. It opens from the front and at the top to allow the trophy to be easily removed.
The same Vuitton workshop also made the trunk that holds the world’s oldest sporting trophy, the silver ewer of the America’s Cup, which dates to 1851. More recently, Louis Vuitton designed the trophy case for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Trophy.
World Rugby chairman Bernard Lapasset called the Webb Ellis Cup “the most coveted prize in rugby,” and “a symbol of unity, enjoyment, participation and excellence. We are excited about our collaboration with a fashion house as renowned as Louis Vuitton and delighted with the stunning, modern-classic case.”

Perry Ellis Men’s RTW Spring 2016

The lineup notes may have said “Very Perry,” but Michael Maccari’s collection was anything but.
 
While he definitely drew from vintage Perry Ellis designs for the knit offerings, Maccari made his own mark by adding an array of relaxed sportswear pieces and athletic references.
 
“I was inspired by guys coming to and from the gym,” he said, pointing to the open shirts, compression tights under baggy shorts and cropped bombers.
 
Playful prints in sweaters and jackets ranged from explosive weaves to painterly graphics, while the suit silhouette was very structured. The shoulder became more powerful, pants were fuller and the jackets were elongated. “I’m tired of seeing short jackets,” Maccari said.
 
An array of slouchy iridescent anoraks were a highlight of the show and displayed Maccari’s ability to blend the old and the new.

The Ellis Island Snow Globe

The Ellis Island Snow Globe


In The Ellis Island Snow Globe, Erica Rand, author of the smart and entertaining book Barbie’s Queer Accessories, takes readers on an unconventional tour of Ellis Island, the migration station turned heritage museum, and its neighbor, the Statue of Liberty. By pausing to reflect on what is and is not on display at these two iconic national monuments, Rand focuses attention on whose heritage is honored and whose obscured. She also reveals the shifting connections between sex, money, material products, and ideas of the nation in everything from the ostensible father-mother-child configuration on an Ellis Island golf ball purchased at the gift shop to the multi-million dollar July 4, 1986 Liberty Weekend extravaganza celebrating the Statue’s centennial just days after the Supreme Court’s un-Libertylike decision upholding the antisodomy laws challenged in Bowers v. Hardwick.Rand notes that portrayals of the Statue of Liberty as a beacon for immigrants tend to suppress the Statue’s connections to people brought to this country by force. She examines what happened to migrants at Ellis Island whose bodies did not match the gender suggested by the clothing they wore. In light of contemporary ideas about safety and security, she examines the “Decide an Immigrant’s Fate” program, which has visitors to Ellis Island act as a 1910 board of inspectors hearing the appeal of an immigrant about to be excluded from the country. Rand is a witty, insightful, and open-minded tour guide, able to synthesize numerous diverse ideas—about tourism, immigration history, sexuality, race, ethnicity, commodity culture, and global capitalism—and to candidly convey her delight in her Ellis Island snow globe. And pen. And lighter. And back scratcher. And golf ball. And glittery pink key chain.
