Why designer Reed Krakoff walked away from his brand
To the general shock of the fashion community, Reed Krakoff (former creative director of Coach) announced that his namesake brand would halt production in March of 2015, and then promised a relaunch with a "completely new look and feel" in August. In a new profile, Vanity Fair interviewed Krakoff and several fashion insiders, including Vanessa Friedman and Fern Mallis, about the designer's career and why he might've walked away from his brand. Krakoff explained: "It wasn’t working on any level. And I felt irresponsible asking people to support it... I saw it getting worse, and I decided to go to my investor group and talk about it. And we agreed to not go forward." The designer's new discount line will debut at Kohl's next month. {Vanity Fair}
