Juicy Couture turns butts into billboards, with different celebrities offering their butts as space for Juicy Couture advertising. Gela Nash Taylor and Pamela Skaist Levy, the brains behind Juicy Couture, thought that making women’s asses a platform for advertising was a good call.
However, the two founders have left Juicy Couture. They have started Skaist-Taylor, another fashion baby of theirs that deserves its spot in the limelight. It borrows trends from California fashion, with a hint of weirdness.
Expect a lot of fur, animal skin, leather, and other details that speak of individuality. Of course, not all the details are being revealed just yet. Skaist-Taylor will soon reveal what the brand is all about, but now is not the time.
Their very first presentation is highly anticipated. The fashion world holds its breath, wondering if Juicy Couture will look anything like Skaist-Taylor. Or will Skaist-Taylor be so much better?
The space for the presentation is being designed by renowned architects Antonio Monfreda and Patrick Kinmonth. They were actually the architects behind the 45th anniversary celebratory exhibit by the giant fashion brand Valentino. In other words, Skaist-Taylor has something huge under wraps, and its unfolding is probably to die for.
Juicy Couture has been seen by many as almost tacky and very reminiscent of New Jersey’s worst fashion, but many people still wear this brand. The clothes from Juicy Couture, in my rather amateur opinion, are too loud and reminiscent of bubblegum pop movies. I don’t own a single piece of Juicy Couture clothing… And I also hate their bags.
But Skaist-Taylor is supposed to be different. I don’t know if this new brand is going to be anything like Juicy Couture, but I do hope not! I like the fact that Skaist-Taylor has a lot of leather; that is more my style.
But I’m holding off judgment until I see the first collection of Skaist-Taylor. I don’t want to be discouraged by the fact that the brains behind it are also the founders of Juicy Couture. Let’s wait and see. One thing is for sure: Skaist Taylor, unlike Juicy Couture, will not turn butts into billboards.
