Brian Atwood makes retail debut with flagship in New York City

BY Staff Writer

New York — Brian Atwood, designer of luxury footwear and handbags, opened its first flagship, in New York City. The company was acquired by The Jones Group Inc. last June.

The store, designed by William Sofield of Studio Sofield, in collaboration with designer Brian Atwood, spans 1,500 sq. ft. of retail space and houses the largest selection of Brian Atwood footwear and handbags in the world. Select items are labeled with quick response (QR) codes, allowing customers to use their smartphone or an in-store iPad to activate a series of videos in which the designer shares insider details like his inspiration and other anecdotes.

Designed to convey the glamorous lifestyle synonymous with Brian Atwood, the salons feature satin upholstered cylindrical displays, mirrored panel walls and rock crystal ornament detailing. The store’s color palette ranges from aubergine and violet to sea foam and mercury.

Brian Atwood, creative director and designer of Brian Atwood, said: "I wanted the store to be the chicest luxury haven – where beauty encompasses you from the moment you walk in, like a Faberge egg."

Other brand-centric design details include stiletto heel facade window displays and shelving with mohair and antique bronze trimmed shoe trays. The Sofield-designed custom furniture, such as the curved settees in violet mohair with bullion fringe trim and the satin scroll benches, is a mix of Regency and French flourish.

Kodak ready to talk reorganization with shareholders

BY CSA STAFF

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Kodak is moving forward with its plans to emerge from bankruptcy and said Friday it is ready to discuss reorganization plans with certain key creditor groups.

To facilitate these discussions with the widest possible group of interested parties, including holders of publicly-traded securities, the company is publicly disclosing certain forward-looking information showing its cash flow forecast and financial projections for Kodak’s commercial imaging business, which is focused on commercial, packaging, and functional printing solutions and enterprise services, and will form the company upon emergence.

These projections include forecasts of its U.S. operating cash flow through June 2013, as well as pro-forma projections of the company’s combined operating cash flow after taking into account previously announced portfolio strategy decisions, such as the intention to divest the document imaging and personalized imaging businesses, as well as its intention to wind down the sale of consumer inkjet printers and focus on servicing its installed base of customers.

Kodak chairman and CEO Antonio Perez said, “As we move forward to emergence and explore an array of financing options, we believe there is confidence and interest among the financial community in our commercial imaging business and its future business plans. We are gratified that there appears to be interest among several potential lenders to finance this business and its emergence, and with this disclosure, we are now better positioned to explore these funding opportunities.”
