Cher fronts Marc Jacobs fall campaign
Well, now we know why Cher accompanied Marc Jacobs to the Met Gala.

In the campaign, which was shot by David Sims, we see Cher modeling one of the gowns from Marc Jacobs's fall 2015 collection. {Fashionista}

Inès de la Fressange returns to retail
Arbiter for Parisian chic, Inès de la Fressange, has opened a new store in Paris on the Left Bank. The return of her own brick-and-mortar retail space comes 16 years after the loss of her store and eponymous brand and, more recently, the launch of a collaboration with Uniqlo. The new store will sell her branded products alongside a selection of handpicked merchandise. {WWD}

North American sales slow for Michael Kors
North American sales for Michael Kors slumped in the first three months of the year. Analysts are blaming low sales on a number of factors, including low mall traffic, lower than usual tourism, shipping delays on the West Coast and a decline in watch sales. There is, however, some positive news. Sales in Europe grew nearly 60 percent and there was also a 65 percent spike in sales in Japan. {Fashionista}
