Kate Spade New York announces new brand, new store

BY Katherine Boccaccio

New York — Kate Spade New York said Tuesday it is unveiling a new apparel and accessories brand, Kate Spade Saturday, which will officially launch in Japan in February 2013 through e-commerce at Saturday.jp and a flagship store in Tokyo.

The company said the brand, which is based on the spirit of Saturday seven days a week, is expected to launch exclusively online at www.saturday.com in the U.S. in spring 2013. A selection of product from the spring 2013 launch collection will be sold on fab.com prior to the U.S. launch.

Kate Spade Saturday is expected to arrive in Brazil through e-commerce and stores in early fall 2013, said the company.

To achieve its objective of having an innovative approach to retail both online and in-stores, Kate Spade partnered with digital agency Huge Inc. to produce a website that features product-focused editorial content integrated seamlessly throughout and includes fans’ tweets and images online.

For its retail spaces, Kate Spade Saturday worked with architects Work Architecture Co. to design a store concept that celebrates the social side of shopping while still keeping it a simple grab-and-go experience. iPads will be strategically stationed throughout the shop, featuring marketing messages, blog content, campaign videos and user-generated images. As a special nod to the brand’s American roots, flagship stores will each house a cafe featuring rotating American food vendors. New York City pretzel shop Sigmund’s Pretzels has signed on to partner with Kate Spade Saturday for the flagship in Tokyo.

“Through ongoing research, we saw an opportunity in the market to engage a new customer base – one that aspires to be a part of the Kate Spade New York brand. Kate Spade Saturday is born from the core values of Kate Spade New York, but is realized in a new and exciting way for this younger customer," says Craig Leavitt, CEO of Kate Spade New York.

The number keypad idea is better because of stronger connection between physical layout and virtual layout, but most of the Macs don’t have num keypad. 3 star hotels in manali

We do not need to be contributing to the pollution problems anymore, we can change our ways and encourage a better quality of packaging from the companies who make the products we use everyday. hardware keylogger

Wal-Mart hit by lawsuit over temp agency overtime hours

BY Katherine Boccaccio

New York — Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is being hit by yet another lawsuit, as a proposed class action was filed Monday alleging that the world’s largest retailer and its staffing agencies broke federal minimum wage and overtime laws. The suit, filed in the U.S. District Court of Illinois’ Eastern Division claims that Wal-Mart and its staffing firms Labor Ready and QPS required temp workers in the Chicago area to arrive early for work, stay late, and work through lunches and breaks without pay.

The suit also alleges that the two firms neglected to provide workers assigned to the Wal-Mart stores with required employment information and that the retailer also failed to keep accurate time records.

In 2008 Wal-Mart agreed to pay as much as $640 million to settle dozens of federal and state class-action lawsuits alleging it deprived workers of wages. In a separate 2011 lawsuit, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that women suing Wal-Mart for gender discrimination could not proceed as a national class action.
