From the new collections hitting the slopes, pardon stores, to the closing one of your favourite stores. And tech beauty. To what to buy, in what to invest, yes some IPO news, too. Check the latest, fashion business buzz news everyone is talking about this Monday morning.
As so many of you keep asking me how come I know so much about what is going on with our favourite fashion brands and fashion business in general, I decided to add a special category to my posts and share a little business buzz on Mondays. Fashion business buzz to be exact. Well and some other business news that you shouldn’t miss too. Don’t worry I’m reading everything for you and adding a little op-ed under each link to save some time for you.
Ps. Let me know in the comments if you want to read slightly more entertaining news from the world of movies and celebrities, too. My team is cheering for this and hoping I add some celebrity news too, but I really want to know from you first. Or do you perhaps prefer financial tips. After all, a girl needs to know where to get money to buy those stunning shoes and bags. On the other hand, it’s only Monday and we still feel some weekend vibes. Anyway, let me know in the comments.
FASHION INVESTMENT NEWS
VERSACE IN “NO RUSH” TO LIST ON THE STOCK MARKET
This wouldn’t be Brunette from Wall Street if I didn’t start with the stock market first. This Monday we are talking about Versace. The rumours were that Versace is in need of capital. But according to the Reuters, Versace is in no rush for the initial public offering.
In short, you won’t be able to buy Versace shares for a while. But you can buy their vintage clothes. Surely, their price won’t rise as quickly as an IPO would, but given the spotlight, Versace got with the new FOX series about Gianni Versace murder, Versace is the hot brand right now.
Ps. Shop some of my favourites vintage Versace pieces in the widget below. As said, these are an investment.

ONE OF YOUR FAVOURITE STORES IS CLOSING. OR IS IT FAKE NEWS?
WILL NEW LOOK CLOSE UP TO 60 STORES?
In short, the rumours are that New Look might close up to 60 stores in the UK. But as said, these are only rumors for now. New Look hasn’t confirmed the closure yet. Also, nobody really knows yet how bad New Look’s sales during the Christmas were. Have you bought anything from the New Look lately? I haven’t. But I found some promising pieces. Check them in the widget below.
H&M STORES TRASHED IN SOUTH AFRICA OVER AD PROTEST
Even after the official apology, the ad situation is still not over. In case you don’t know what ad are we talking about, H&M recently published an ad which featured a black child wearing a T-shirt with a slogan “coolest monkey in the jungle”.
Anyway, seems like the apology didn’t do much as the Economic Freedom Fighters tear down shop displays and threw clothes around in 6 H&M stores in Gauteng province (South Africa).
No, I’m not adding any H&M items this time. Not that I approve of the attacks, but any racism should stop once and for all. And what H&M did is simply outrageous.
BEAUTY GONE TECH
NO MORE FACE SHEETS, NO MORE SCARY LOOKING MASK MONDAYS – FOREO LAUNCHES THE SMART FACE MASK
Finally, Mondays, and other days when we walked around looking like monsters while nourishing our skin, are finally over. My favourite beauty tech brand Foreo just launched the new Smart Face Mask. And it’s raising money on the Kickstarter. How can a face mask be smart? Well, it actually doesn’t look like a mask you would spread over your face. It looks similar to Luna but not for washing face. Apparently, the cream or mask is inside this little gadget you use like you would use Luna. Anyway, read more about it on the Kickstarter. Link below.
By the way, they already raised over a $1 million so far. I’m definitely getting mine. And no, not just because I want to enlarge my Foreo family. But because I truly believe in Foreo. Ps. Find my pink Foreo family in the widget below.
L’Oreal’s NEWEST WEARABLE TRACKS SKIN’S SUN DAMAGE AND SELLS SUNSCREEN
Not a recent news anymore, but in case you missed it, L’Oreal has gone tech too while trying to sell you a sunscreen. In short, L’Oreal made a UV patch that you tape on your skin (you can actually wear it as a tattoo), connect with your smartphone, and the app tells you if need a high-SPF or you can go away merely with sensitive skin-care products. In my opinion, this is something that you don’t really need as it’s quite obvious you should be using a high-SPF always. At least on your face. Ps. This is my secret for a beautiful, radiant, healthy, white skin. Read more about how I take care of my skin here.here.

SHISEIDO GAINS PIONEERING SKINCARE TECHNOLOGY WITH ACQUISITION OF OLIVIO LABORATORIES
Another beauty brand is embracing technology. This time its Shiseido. In short, these two companies, Shiseido and Olivio Laboratories are about to create skin shape correction products that dry instantly and offer enhanced results. In case you don’t know Olivio Laboratories, this company is known of the layer that forms an invisible, breathable, elastic, occlusive long-lasting film on the skin.

MORE FASHION MORE NEWS
I intentionally left the news about Testino and Weber being accused of sexual harassment as this is more of celebrity news. Whatsoever I do have to say I despise anyone who sexually harasses others. But I prefer to distance myself from this case for now as I don’t really know if you want to read celebrity news on Brunette from Wall Street, too. Let me know if you do, in the comments below. By the way, which fashion business news you liked the most?
