Retailers talk about what went into the decisions behind bringing on their latest designer latest and what lines they have their eyes on.

The inventory experts have traditional jewelry merchandising down to a science: Fill the right categories with the right price points, and reorder fast turners. But when it comes to designer jewelry, it’s not so simple. There is no “right answer” for any given store. A new purchase could depend on the marketplace, customer preferences, the current designer mix, price points, styles, trends, and the list goes on. With that in mind, there may be nothing more valuable to a retailer than hearing “word of mouth” from other retailers about which lines are selling in their stores — and what they

RENOV PREPWORK

An architect gives an overview on how to prepare for a home renovation

People renovate for a variety of reasons. “They need extra space and they want to update the design of their home,” says architect Love de Leon. The extent of the renovation depends on the homeowner, whether it’s simple re-painting, or a home overhaul that entails tearing down walls.

Renovations require careful planning. Usually, a home renovation creates a “domino effect” where the other areas of the house eventually get renovated as well. Next, the homeowner needs to coordinate with a designer to figure out a theme for

Nathan Yong admits that he has a thing for shoes. The first thing he looks at when he meets people is what they wear on their feet. «Are you wearing flats made of rubber?» he asks a female journalist. «Yes!» she exclaims. «Interesting. But I bet they squeak when you walk in the rain,» he says. «They do,» the girl replies. «They are comfortable, though.»

If one of the hallmarks of a good designer is his acute sensitivity towards the characteristics of a

A custom-made wooden daybed makes the fourth-floor guest room warm and cozy. The designer combined two side tables to make a center table. The leaf-patterned area rug, pillows, and woven Designers Guild wallpaper complement the room’s rustic vibe, while a painting by Carlo Magno adds a bit of bright color. This room will soon be converted into a nursery.

MAGNATE OF TASTE

THE Visionary President OF RALPH PUCCMNTERNATiONAL DISCUSSES THE INSPIRATIONAL POWER OF ART, THE BEAUTY FOUND in imperfections AND THE NEXT Big Thing.

WHEN I JOINED THE family mannequin business in 1976, all the other companies were doing very ladylike and elegant mannequins. So we sprayed ours out in high-gloss colors. We went where someone else wasn’t, and that became the design philosophy of Pucci from there on out.

I LOOK FOR PIECES that are unique, simple, timeless and, most importantly, that have soul. I don’t look for furniture that’s been mass-produced; I look for special pieces that have been touched

Approximation to the truth

In the film «Poem of Wings» retained the name of the hero, Andrei Tupolev, and the portrait likeness with him. It is safe! I cited to meet with Tupolev, unfortunately, rarely, but enough to argue that the way to get close. Sociability, ease of use, deliberate coarseness, some forgetfulness and at the same time focus. It — Tupolev!

But to show the creative process (what, apparently, the authors sought in part) and ten series is hardly possible. I remember, as a group of researchers working on a collection of articles about Sergey Ilyushin. It was possible, apparently, to show

GRACE NOTES

For a renowned fashion designer, home is a cool, calm, and collected Manhattan retreat.

When designer Adrienne Vittadini bought her Upper East Side apartment with husband and business partner Gianluigi Vittadini in 1486, the couple pretty much gutted the place and started over. In the almost 30 years since, Vittadini has, she says, «continually fiddled,» but the one thing that always remains constant is the serene palette: a cream with «greenish yellow undertones» she likens to the color of hay, and which defines much of the living space.

Ironically, at her eponymous design label, which Vittadini left in 1998, the
