TSA Considers Spiked Loubs "Weapons": Some guy named Taz Arnold was traveling with his $1,245 Christian Louboutin Rollerboy Spike shoes and according to his twitter account, the TSA deemed them weapons. {Yahoo! Shine} Get Ready For Snooki the Brand: Snooki--though she recently told the NY Daily News that she prefers to be called Nicole--has hired NY firm SRG Ventures to manage various Snooki-licensed gear to be rolled out over the coming year. Up first? Slippers, jewelry, oversized sunnies, and then possibly denim, sportswear, lingerie, handbags, personal care, beauty products, fragrances, swimwear, bedding and home goods. What about solo cups, Snooks? {NY Post} WWD Devotes New Section To the Boys: WWD has launched a new section devoted to men's fashion and style called Mensweek, that will appear in the paper every Thursday. "We wanted to amp up our men’s coverage," a WWD spokesperson told us, " looking ahead it’s such an important market and continues to strengthen." Today's section features a story that credits the recession with the recent spike in menswear retail and another that ranks quarterbacks (really). {WWD subscription NOT required this time}
