Welcome back, everyone!
Welcome back, everybody! It’s a lovely summer day here in NYC, but fall is coming! This week we wanted to let you all know of a big title change coming our way. The popular series Collezioni Close-Up has a new publisher and several new names.
All of the titles that used to be known as Collezioni Close-Up Man or Collezioni Close-Up Woman are now either Fashion Focus Man or Fashion Focus Women. The list of classifications that will be published for women, under the new title, includes:
Fashion Focus Women:
Bags, Beachwear, Bijoux, Outerwear, Evening & Cocktail, Jeans & Sportswear, Knitwear, Leather & Fur, Print & Embroidery, Shoes, and Skirt & Pants.
We are just receiving the first issues of these titles, and they will be processed and available to all by early August.
Fashion Focus Man:
Bags & Accessories, Denim & Street, Formal, Knitwear, Outerwear, Shirt, and Shoes. I wrote about these titles as last week’s Mag of the Week.
Fashion Focus Kids will be the only childrenswear title published now.
All of the Close-Up Runway titles for both men and women will now be Fashion Gallery: “City”. For women, these titles cover Paris, Milan, London, and New York.
A complete listing of all the Collezioni Close-Up titles that we have, plus all the new Fashion Focus and Fashion Galleries titles can be found in the PERS Research Guide to Forecasting and Trends.
The new publisher has stopped publishing the following Close-Up classifications/titles:
Accessories: Women, Fashion Textile: Women, Leather & Fur: Men, Runway Berlin, and Runway Bridal.
All of these new titles will live at the PERS desk on the 6th floor in the library, as did their Close-Up predecessors. Come up and take a look!
