PROJECT
Brooklyn Cloth
Founded in 2011, Brooklyn Cloth is the trend-driven apparel line under Icer Brands, the New York City-based parent company of labels such as Bklyn Athletics, The Narrows, Wayside, NBA licensed partner brand Unk, NFL by Icer Brands, and even Apple Bottoms, the denim line cofounded by rapper Nelly.
Brooklyn Cloth was born from the minds of Icer Brands’ owner Norman Jemal and Daron Jacob, head of creative, who witnessed the movement of trends in women’s wear and saw an opportunity to speak to those trends in men’s wear as well as through elevated fabrication, textiles and patterns.
“All of our fabrics have been elevated and have dimension to them. Today, the fabrics we make and use start from the yarn level,” said Jacob. “I’ve always loved the challenge of making things truly marketable that can touch many people, and cross over demographics, price points and distribution channels. Our lives are constantly evolving and we thought our brand will continue to evolve, as well.”

Apolis Opens Store Dedicated to Market Bags, Pivots Away From Men’s wear

Los Angeles brand Apolis has opened an entire store dedicated to its popular Market Bags, and pivoted away from the men’s wear category.
Located at 806 East Third Street in L.A.’s Arts District, the industrial-chic Apolis Print Shop offers 10-minute customization of the brand’s reusable jute Fair Trade bags, and a station equipped with paint easels and iPads for kids to join the design process. There’s also a jute garden to connect customers to the natural materials behind the bags.
The store is located in the former location of the brand’s men’s wear flagship, a pioneer in the downtown Arts District neighborhood where Dover Street Market and Phillip Lim have since opened stores.
It represents a brand pivot for brothers Raan and Shea Parton, who launched Apolis in 2004 with workwear-inspired men’s wear basics, including the indigo boiled wool chore jackets loved by Chris Pine, Leonardo DiCaprio and others that helped to define L.A. as a creative hub for relaxed men’s wear in the late 2010s.
But in the long run, it’s the bags, launched in 2011, that were driving growth for the brand with the motto “advocacy through industry,” which has been dedicated to responsible manufacturing since Day One, partnering with factories in

Adidas Seeking a Higher Profile in American Market

Adidas wants a bigger chunk of the American market.
At the end of 2018, Adidas had an 11.5 percent share of the U.S. athletic footwear retail market and a 5.4 percent share of its activewear market, according to NPD’s Matt Powell. But Zion Armstrong, the company’s North American president, wants to significantly grow its share.
In an interview at Adidas’ new 45,000-square-foot New York City headquarters in Greenwich Village, Armstrong, a New Zealand native and 21-year Adidas veteran, said the U.S. represents 40 percent of the global sports market, “so our biggest opportunity is here.”
From 2016 to 2018, he said, Adidas has doubled its top-line sales in the U.S. and “is on track for a record year” in 2019. “We’re very happy with the progress we’ve made, but we’re not happy with where we are.”
He said that with a market penetration in the low single digits, “there’s an immense opportunity. We’re moving out of the minors and into the majors.”
He hopes to raise the company’s sales in America by zeroing in on innovations in product for both performance and lifestyle, enhancing its sustainability initiatives and launching some key collaborations, including the first collection with Beyoncé, which will make its debut in mid-January.

Luxury Lingerie Brand Hanro Teams With The Little Market for Latest Collab

Retail companies and brands continue to rack in record sales from this year’s Black Friday through Cyber Monday shopping weekend. But Hanro is giving back — just in time for Giving Tuesday. 
The luxury lingerie and loungewear brand is the latest retailer to team with The Little Market, donating 100 percent of proceeds to the nonprofit when shoppers purchase The Little Market x Hanro lingerie bag. 
“It was a natural fit,” Hannah Skvarla, cofounder of The Little Market, said of the partnership with Hanro. “We are like-minded companies that prioritize quality and value conscious consumers.” 
The travel-size canvas bag, which retails for $ 15, is available while supplies last in Hanro’s Los Angeles and New York City stores, as well as at shop.hanrousa.com.

Reselling, Re-consuming: IFM Conference Highlights Strength of Secondhand Market

PARIS — “I love the idea that my thrifted worker’s pants may have previously belonged to someone named Gerard.”
This sentence was uttered by Emilie, one of the seven young fashion aficionados interviewed in “Radical Fashion Kids,” a 15-minute documentary produced by the Institut Français de la Mode, which was unveiled on Wednesday during the Fashion Reboot conference, a day of talks dealing with the fashion industry’s current challenges.
“Radical Fashion Kids” featured a range of Gen Zers, from 13-year-old Ondine, who stopped buying fast fashion after watching the documentary “The True Cost” to 19-year-old Peter, who doesn’t see the point of brick-and-mortar stores as he can scroll through resale platforms on his phone in bed. Their interviews drove home a key point: The secondhand market is stronger than ever.
According to IFM teacher Thomas Delattre, 40 percent of French consumers bought at least one secondhand item in 2019, up from 30 percent in 2018 and 15 percent in 2009. “This is true across all socio-professional categories and touches both men and woman equally,” he told the audience during a presentation named “Re-consuming: New Needs, New Strategies,” based on a study of French consumers led by the IFM.

As Domestic Market Slows Down, Pitti Uomo Boosts Italian Fashion’s Internationalization

MILAN — Internationalization continues to be key for the Italian fashion and textile sector, which is facing a significant slowdown in its domestic market.
As highlighted by Pitti Immagine president Claudio Marenzi during the seasonal press conference to introduce the schedule of the upcoming edition of Pitti Uomo, running Jan. 7 to 10, in the third quarter of 2019 the domestic business of Italian textile and fashion companies fell 8.4 percent compared to the same period last year, while the industry’s exports increased 2.2 percent. The growth in international markets was driven by increased sales of finished products, which rose 6.3 percent, while the textile sector registered a 4.7 percent decline, according to data provided by Sistema Moda Italia.
In the first seven months of 2019, the fashion and textile sector’s exports grew 9.4 percent compared to the same period last year. Double-digit growth was registered in the U.S. and the U.K., up 26.4 percent and 12.1 percent, respectively, as well as in Japan and South Korea, where exports of Italian products increased 12.1 percent and 14.8 percent, respectively. While exports to China continue to grow — they were up 6.8 percent in the seven-month period — those directed to Germany, Russia

South Coast Plaza Eyes Men’s Market With Debut Look Book

CUSTOM APPROACH: South Coast Plaza is showing some love to the male shopper.
The Orange County shopping center this evening will host a private event at the Berluti store to celebrate South Coast’s first men’s fall marketing book.
It’s a strategic move for the center as more chatter builds around men’s and the HENRYs consumer — high-earnings, not rich yet shoppers — or male Millennials.
“With the international growth in the men’s wear category, we wanted to shine the spotlight on our unparalleled collection of men’s boutiques, which represent some of the world’s most coveted names, from fashion-forward brands to esteemed sartorial leaders,” said South Coast executive director of marketing Debra Gunn Downing in a statement.

South Coast counts more than 70 boutiques that sell men’s apparel or accessories and both new and existing tenants have taken more notice of the male customer.

How to Market Yourself in the Music Industry

I’m a hypocrite. At least I think I may be.

I’ve spent the better part of 30 years in sales and marketing and actually own a marketing company. Yet, I find myself annoyed by commercials and blatant brand marketing campaigns. Perhaps being an insider in the game of marketing has tainted my objectivity and sense of appreciation for the cleverness of it all. But in the end, I fast-forward through commercials on my DVR and find product placements in TV shows and movies to be a bit tacky. I have often asked myself if I have ever really been influenced to make a purchase based on advertising.

The simple answer has to be, “Yes”.

My subconscious awareness of a brand or product puzzles me. I’ve responded to discounts or low price offers in advertisements when it involves a product I’m already interested in buying, usually a commodity like food. But if I’m not already looking for or seeking a product or service, advertising just glosses right past me. At least that’s what I rationalize.

Having said that, I do appreciate clever creative advertising. Watching the Super Bowl for the best commercials is like a holiday event. So I can admit that I am at least marginally affected by advertising.

In the entertainment business, it’s all about advertising and promotion. In fact, the industry doesn’t exist or renew apart from P & A (promotion and advertising).

An artist, actor, model, or perhaps anyone in the public eye will typically need to manage their brand and image with the public and industry. It’s part of the process. It just is.

When I consider all the ways advertisers use to promote their product, service or cause, I am overwhelmed by the conditioning we, a free market society, have been subjected to over the past 100 years or so. Think about it. Nearly everything we experience each day has some promotion or advertising connected with it. Even the most human characteristic has a form of promotion. The outfit we choose to wear, how we do our hair, the personal hygiene products we use are all simply ways we tell the world who we are in the most basic way.

In the music industry, everything an artist does, says, looks like, sounds like, etc. is a direct or indirect form of advertising. The exception being that in the entertainment industry, it is advertising on steroids. It is an industry based on the senses and emotion. Promoting an artist involves engaging the potential consumer with a sensual or intellectual appeal. Guys like me in marketing understand this nuance and we do our best to enter the psyche of the targeted consumer to create a campaign that will attract them to the product, service or cause we assist promoting.

The hardest part of advertising is knowing how to calculate investment of funds and other resources (like time, creativity, etc) versus the measurement of the payback. For business newbies, the term is called ROI, Return On Investment. The magic or silver bullet in marketing is to find the best ROI campaign.

Measuring ROI in the music business can be difficult. Some would look for direct financial returns as the best measurement. Record labels, especially, are concerned about ROI because they function more like a bank now than in the past. They are looking for their investment to make a return in literal revenues. But as a new artist trying to make your way, some marketing investments won’t have a financial ROI, but more of a branding ROI. What this means is that you are investing in spreading your name, talent and creativity to as many people as possible. You’re selling yourself, not just your CD or downloadable music, or concert tickets, or merchandise. A branding campaign is likely the most expensive and most difficult one of all because it doesn’t have a direct measurable ROI at first.

There have been many gigs, media interviews, songs, TV appearances, or just meet and greets that Spencer Kane (my 18 year old artist / actor son) has done the past three years that give him public visibility, but there has been no financial upside in the short term. It’s all been part of the branding campaign. Even having a sponsor for shoes and clothes has often been simply a branding campaign for the sponsor and Spencer at the same time. There’s no real financial upside to it.

One of the more frustrating parts of P&A in the music business involves touring and live events. There’s not really an easy formula for how to fill seats at a venue when you’re just starting out. There’s the whole friends and family angle when you’re just an infant in the process, but that gets old. Promoting your music and brand well enough to get a consumer to pay for a ticket to see you live is simply difficult. There’s no short cut, no secret method. There’s always co-branding where you attach yourself to an existing product or brand that the public already knows (think being an opener for a major headliner), but even that can cost money for a new artist (pay-to-play).

Refining your approach to marketing in the music industry is an ever evolving process. What works for one season, may not work the next. Redefining your image and brand may involve new music styles, new wardrobe or appearance, or even migrating to a different area in the entertainment business. Madonna has always inspired me regarding her ability to reinvent herself for different seasons and audiences. She is still Madonna, but somehow creates a new sound, image, or controversy to get the public to pay attention. Miley Cyrus does it all the time. It’s the nature of the industry.

People’s attention span, especially teens, only lasts so long. The “flavor of the day” mindset is very realistic for younger audiences. However, once they attach their emotions to that flavor, it stays with them for years. I recall my personal emotional tie to songs and bands from my youth. That is why the entertainment industry is so built around youth. It’s the ability to connect emotionally and sensually with your audience that creates business. This is fact.

So here’s a few quick tips about how to market yourself and measure the ROI to some degree.

1) PERFORM LIVE OFTEN

Sadly, with the advent of the internet age, artists think churning out mix-tapes or youtube videos is going to give them their big break. They offer free music for download in an effort to build their brand. While offering “samples” of the product is smart, giving away your product long-term just looks desparate. It creates the image that you don’t value your brand. Beyond that, it’s eventually costing a lot of resources that could be spent elsewhere. Once an artist has a lot of product built up, they need to focus on giving the public a live experience of the product. This is important because it does many things for your career. It helps you learn how to respond to audiences, but also allows audiences to experience more than just the music of an artist. It’s a way to build an emotional connection that is deeper than the melody or lyrics. You’re investing in your brand and building fans that will ultimately pay for your music. Sadly, social media fans don’t easily convert to buyers of your product because they have been trained to expect everything for free. When you’re trying to build a career and earn a living, free doesn’t cut it. So taking every opportunity to perform will eventually create an ROI of product sales in merch at the event or new music you release later on. Performing live may involve a lot of free shows, non-paying gigs, travel expenses, and even some pay-to-play performances. The investment may be costly up front, but it will pay off down the road in revenues.

2) SOCIAL MEDIA

Not to contradict myself, but social media does have a ROI. The investment is the babysitting of posting and upload of content, responding to fans and engaging with them, and the managing of multiple platforms and software. Hiring a social media manager may escalate the ROI, but also may cost you finances to do. The viral effects of social media are proven when the right content or post is made available. But it is important to know that it is more a marketing tool of necessity than one of financial return. It builds a long-term snapshot of the artist and their life, which will give new converts a chance to get to know the artist and their music in short order. The ROI is usually the initial exposure of your music to new fans who may eventually come see you in concert or pay for your music.

3) IMAGING

Please take the time to hire a professional photographer, graphic designer, web developer, producer for music, etc. Many artists fail to realize that their image goes beyond the music they create. It is their wardrobe, the photos they post online, the album artwork, the press photos they furnish, the music videos they create, and even their merch booth display. For a few hundred dollars, for example, you can create a very visually stimulating merch booth at a live venue. It will easily impress fans and even industry folks who attend that you’re serious about your career. Many think spending $ 100 on home printed paper CD label will save them money, but it may be costing them. Take the same $ 100 and spend it on a 5 or 8 foot banner. That visual will attract people to stop by your booth. This is especially true when performing at a large festival where you’re not alone as an artist. A good photographer can be found about anywhere nowadays. Camera gear is relatively inexpensive. Even phones have great cameras. It’s the little things you do with your image in marketing materials that make a good ROI.

4) CO-BRANDING

I mentioned this before, but any chance you get to be a feature on an established artist’s project, or have them featured on yours is brilliant marketing. Appearing at an event with an established brand is also important. This may seem basic, but it is important. The real challenge is that established artists don’t like having parasites around. They don’t want to use their fame and popularity to give you a freebie. Most will want some investment from you in exchange. Don’t be offended. They have spent years and resources building their brand. Imagine being a wannabe chef and asking a national restaurant if you can offer your gourmet recipe to their clients and potentially taking away orders from their own menu. This is the reality of co-branding. It costs money most times but the ROI can be instant popularity. Just listen to radio. Rihanna has done something no other artist has done in history. She has more number one songs on Billboard than anyone. She hasn’t done so alone, she has co-branded the majority of them by being featured or having a proven artist featured on her project. It has created a successful business ROI for her career.

5) PRESS RELEASE

It may seem trivial, but the power of a press release as it relates to marketing is very important. Having media tell your pre-planned news story can be very helpful. Writing a press release properly is very important and paying someone to do that can make a difference in first impressions with the media. You may not have the ability to craft words together or may think you’re a lyrical assassin with words, but having a professional press release writer tell your story is an important investment. Many can also help distribute the press release to the right outlets to cover your story. Sadly, the local newspaper only builds local awareness, and in the music industry, you need to have a regional impact to build serious momentum. The ROI isn’t an immediate financial one in most cases, but more of a brand awareness and can really build strong alliances with media outlets that will likely want to follow your progress over time.

Even though marketing (P&A) is essential, be careful not to get caught up in investing so much in P&A that you lose sight of measuring the ROI. At some point you will look at your bank account and music sales and scratch your head wondering why it isn’t what you expected. Being careful in your investment of P&A and deliberate about measuring the ROI along the way will help you prevent going bankrupt in resources or emotion. The other balance to this is to avoid believing your own P&A and ignoring the reality that your brand or music may just not be desirable by the masses and it may be time to pack it in and focus on another way to earn a living. Sad reality, but one that can save you and those around you some frustration.

The World Market for Base Metal Imitation Jewelry: A 2009 Global Trade Perspective

The World Market for Base Metal Imitation Jewelry: A 2009 Global Trade Perspective


This report was created for strategic planners, international executives and import/export managers who are concerned with the market for base metal imitation jewelry. With the globalization of this market, managers can no longer be contented with a local view. Nor can managers be contented with out-of-date statistics that appear several years after the fact. I have developed a methodology, based on macroeconomic and trade models, to estimate the market for base metal imitation jewelry for those countries serving the world market via exports or supplying from various countries via imports. I do so for the current year based on a variety of key historical indicators and econometric models. On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners approaching the world market face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying base metal imitation jewelry? What is the dollar value of these imports? How much do the imports of base metal imitation jewelry vary from one country to another? Do exporters serving the world market have similar market shares across the importing countries? Which countries supply the most exports of base metal imitation jewelry? Which countries are buying their exports? What is the value of these exports and which countries are the largest buyers?

The Politics of Provisions: Food Riots, Moral Economy, and Market Transition in England, c. 1550-1850

The Politics of Provisions: Food Riots, Moral Economy, and Market Transition in England, c. 1550-1850


The ‘politics of provisions’ – forceful negotiations over sustenance – has created surprising contests in world history, particularly in times of market transition. In England a ‘politics of provisions’ evolved in a dialogue between popular riots and paternalist subsistence policies from Tudor dearths to the Victorian embrace of free-market doctrines. Hence provision politics was a core ingredient of both state-formation and of the emergence of the first market economy and society in England. This book is the first full-scale critical revision of E.P. Thompson’s seminal model of the ‘moral economy of the crowd’, which has had huge influence across the social sciences. It is the first synthesis of the many dispersed studies of three centuries of marketing and negotiations by riot over subsistence. By explaining such long-term shifts in patterns of political negotiation from parish-pump to Privy Council, this study offers a new view of why food riots were a more compelling and lasting bone of contention than enclosures, wages or votes.

Dear Market Researcher, I’m Gay — Stop Sending Playboy Subscription Offers!

This offer arrived in the mail the other day from Playboy‘s Market Research Department:

2014-06-20-playboy.JPG

Dear Domenick Scudera,

To attract readers with preferred demographics, you have been selected to receive this courtesy. As a special incentive, the price is reduced down as low as we are allowed, giving you a full year of Playboy for a token $ 12.

A sampling of my friends’ responses:

  • “I hear the articles are good.”
  • “Wasn’t this on your wedding registry?”
  • “I think the label has a misprint — it should read ‘…to a token,12.'”
  • “Oh, c’mon. Everyone knows gay men love women.”
  • “Did u forget to tell us something?”

Gay acceptance has reached new heights if 49-year-old, recently married gay men are one of Playboy‘s “preferred demographics.” I feel blessed that Playboy has extended me this courtesy, one that I never would have received back in the days when gays were being denied equality.

The offer says that I will get the “beyond-beautiful women, obviously.” In addition, they believe that I will “appreciate the award-winning journalism and no-holds-barred interviews” in every “smoking hot issue.” The fine print includes this guarantee: “Playboy always guarantees that if you are ever dissatisfied for any reason whatsoever you get a full refund on all unmailed issues.”

Dear Playboy,

I am somewhat dissatisfied with my subscription. Don’t get me wrong. There is a lot to admire in your magazine: The articles and interviews are terrific, and the women are, obviously, beyond beautiful. However, I would enjoy more male nudity in my magazines. Please refund me the amount of my unmailed issues, until you are prepared to give me some smoking-hot maleness.

Thanks,
Domenick

This is not the first time I have received an offer for heterosexual porn. When I was 7 years old, I innocently opened up a plain, white envelope addressed to me. There was a series of pictures of naked women with their legs spread wide, and before I knew what was happening, my mother leaped across the room, wrestled the envelope out of my hands and appeared to have some trouble breathing. The next thing I knew, she was on the phone, complaining to someone, trying to make sure I never received offers like this again. Who did she call? The Post Office? The Better Business Bureau? President Nixon? I have no idea, but whoever it was, she was ineffective. I received more offers for years. She carefully monitored my mail until I was well into my college years.

Were 7-year-old gay boys one of the “preferred demographics” for Screw?

Most likely, these marketing departments have misidentified me. This is a problem I encounter often. For instance, when I watch television, the advertisers assume that I am a heavyset, single female on her period. I gather this from the fact that most of the commercials are for weight-loss supplements, dating sites and tampons.

About an hour after I received the Playboy offer, a pleasant young woman knocked on our front door with an offer for educational books for our children. When I explained that we have dogs, not kids, she showed me the books anyway. Did I know that flamingos are pink because they eat shrimp, and that they would be white if they did not? No, I did not. This is educational, but my nonexistent children will not learn this, because I did not order any of the books.

Am I missing out? There might be other interesting factoids in those books, and Playboy‘s “no-holds-barred interviews” might offer some insights. But for now, I think I will hold on to my gay dollars for another day.

Woman Who Says She Bought Renoir At Flea Market For $7 Challenged In Court

The question of who owns a tiny Renoir landscape of the River Seine may rest on a four-page handwritten letter penned 78 years ago by a middle-aged woman in a bad mood.

The letter, by the Baltimore art collector Saidie A. May, is reprinted verbatim as part of a 154-page motion for summary judgment filed late Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Eastern Virginia by attorney Marla Diaz on behalf of the Baltimore Museum of Art.

In effect, the motion asks federal Judge Leonie M. Brinkema to determine that the 1879 oil painting “Paysage Bords de Seine” belongs to the Baltimore museum and not to the 51-year-old Virginia woman who says she bought it at a flea market in 2009 for $ 7 as part of a box of odds and ends.

The letter by the then-56-year-old May is dated Oct. 14, 1935. It’s key to the case because it indicates that the heiress owns the tiny painting (framed, it is about the size of a piece of notebook paper) and planned to lend it to her hometown museum. May later bequeathed her art collection — including the Renoir painting — to the Baltimore museum, according to the motion.

May’s missive, replete with underlinings and multiple exclamation points, was written to Roland McKinney, who at the time was the museum’s director. The heiress — one of the art institution’s major benefactors — seems primarily interested in scolding McKinney about the sorry condition of a religious painting in the museum’s possession. (“It was never in such a bad shape and I’m sick about it,” she writes.)

It isn’t until the very bottom of the third page that May gets to the matter that has attracted interest throughout the art world for the past 15 months:

“The Modern Art Museum will be sending you very soon some small paintings of mine which I am willing to loan the Museum indefinitely if you insure them!!”

The second painting she lists as “Au Bord de la Seine” by Renoir next to this price: $ 1,010.

The peacefulness of the Seine scene, depicted on a linen napkin, belies its tumultuous recent history.

The artwork by the French Impressionist master surfaced publicly in September 2012 when Marcia Fuqua, 51, of Lovettsville, Va., who is also known as Martha, said that she bought the artwork from the Harpers Ferry Flea Market in 2009 without being aware that it was an original Renoir.

She said it was her mother, who went by the names Marcia Mae Fuqua and Marcia Fouquet and who had a fine-art background, who urged her to have the painting appraised. Fouqet died Sept. 9 of this year.

The painting was authenticated by The Potomack Company, a Virginia auction house, which estimated the artwork’s value at between $ 75,000 and $ 100,000. An auction was scheduled for two weeks later, and the inquiries began pouring in from potential buyers internationally.

But the day before the painting was to be sold, the Baltimore Museum of Art produced documents indicating that the work had been stolen from what was then known as the Polk Gallery after the museum closed at 6 p.m. Nov. 16, 1951, and before 1 p.m. the following day.

The auction was called off. The FBI seized the painting and has been holding it in secure storage in Manassas, Va., until Judge Brinkema can resolve the ownership question.

For a time, it appeared that the painting’s rightful owner might have been the Fireman’s Fund Insurance Co., which paid the BMA’s $ 2,500 theft claim. However, last month, the insurance company transferred its rights to the artwork to the museum.

Diaz’s motion doesn’t dispute Fuqua’s account of how she came to acquire the oil painting. Or, if any doubt is expressed, it is delicately worded.

“Notwithstanding the ‘Renoir’ plate on the frame of the painting and the paper on the back indicating that it was by Renoir and entitled ‘Paysage Bords de Seine,’ Fuqua did not realize that the painting was an original Renoir at the time of her purchase or in the following years,” the motion reads.

“Even if she did purchase the painting at a flea market without knowledge of its authorship and/or title, her claim must still fail as a matter of law because the painting was stolen from the BMA.”

In Diaz’s motion, she provides documents indicating that the Renoir landscape was exhibited at the Baltimore museum at least twice: in March 1950 as part of an exhibit of the May Collection, and again in November 1951, when it was included in a show titled “From Ingres to Gauguin.”

It was during that show that the painting disappeared.

To bolster her argument, Diaz cites the example of a Tiffany sword dating back to the Civil War that vanished from Brown University sometime between 1974 and 1977. The sword was purchased in 1992 from an Illinois antiques dealer by a couple named Donald and Toni Tharpe.

After Brown discovered the whereabouts of the missing weapon, university officials sued to have the sword returned. The lawsuit was filed in the Eastern District of Virginia — the same district where the Renoir case is pending. Though the Tharpes argued that they had purchased the artifact in good faith, earlier this summer, Magistrate Judge Douglas Miller ruled that the sword belongs to the university and ordered it returned.

In her motion, Diaz argues that the case for the museum’s ownership of the Renoir is even stronger than the winning case presented by Brown University.

Unlike the theft of the sword, which was never fully documented, the Renoir painting was reported to have been stolen within hours after the theft was discovered. Diaz’s motion includes four separate documents alluding to the theft.

She argues that under “well-settled Virginia law” good-faith purchasers of stolen goods are out of luck.

“Ms. Fuqua could not have purchased good title to the painting and does not, therefore, have a valid claim to possession and ownership of the painting,” Diaz’s motion argues. “Her claim to possession and ownership of the painting must be dismissed.”

Fuqua’s attorney, T. Wayne Biggs, declined to comment Tuesday, though he is expected to file a formal response to the motion for summary judgment this month.

A motion for a summary judgment can be granted only if the germane facts in the case aren’t in dispute, if they are so clear-cut that a jury could reach just one possible verdict under the law.

That’s a steep bar for any attorney to surmount — and Fuqua’s attorney has yet to make his client’s case.

But, at a pretrial conference last week, Judge Brinkema might have given a hint as to her thinking. She told the attorneys: “This is a relatively straightforward, simple case. It shouldn’t take much time.”

She will hear oral arguments in the motion on Jan. 10.
