Google searches are showing rival business directories in Europe

Google searches are showing rival business directories in EuropeGoogle seems to be taking extra steps to please EU regulators worried that it's abusing its search dominance. Search Engine Land has discovered that Google is highlighting rival directory services like Yelp when you search for businesses in European countries like France and Spain, placing prominent "find results on" cards above Google's own. Clearly, it's hoping this will fend off potential EU criticism that it's favoring its own results in local searches over those of competitors.

Designers Return to Showing, Selling Twice Year — and It Makes Sense

LONDON — The endless fashion week cycle and the physical waste it generates — between samples produced, runway show costs, plane tickets purchased, and time spent to-ing and fro-ing to showrooms — is old news. Everyone realizes it has to stop, but few are brave enough to make big changes in an inherently wasteful industry.
Designers, particularly smaller, independent brands with budgets to manage, are slowly starting to address the issue by showing two large collections a year, that can then be divided into multiple drops. This is particularly relevant for accessories, as the brands don’t have to stage fashion shows or participate as actively as their rtw-focused counterparts.
They are finding that producing two comprehensive pre-collections — and hosting showrooms during the January and June pre-collection markets — makes a lot more sense.
“Most retailers allocate 70 percent of their budget to pre-collections, which makes designing a whole new collection for ‘main’ wasteful in sample production costs,” said Estelle Orilland, who recently founded the handbag label Stee Atelier and who previously worked for the likes of Chloé, Stella McCartney and Marni as an accessories designer.
“Encouraging retailers to make two bigger orders a year instead of four smaller orders cuts delivery costs, and therefore emissions,

What to Watch: Tailored Brands Is Showing Signs of Improvement

There are green shoots beginning to emerge for Tailored Brands.
Earlier this month, the country’s largest men’s-only public retailer raised its projections for the second fiscal quarter, which will be released on Sept. 11. It now expects net sales in the range of $ 787 million to $ 789 million, GAAP diluted earnings per share in the range of 64 cents to 66 cents and adjusted diluted EPS in the range of 78 cents to 80 cents, which is above the projections made on June 12 of adjusted EPS of 65 cents to 70 cents.
This is the first positive sign that the new management team is having an effect on a business that has been under strain since paying a whopping $ 1.8 billion to buy Jos. A. Bank in 2014, saddling the company with debt. Add to that a shift in the men’s market with tailored clothing — Tailored Brands’ bread and butter — undergoing a precipitous decline in favor of streetwear and athletic wear.
In the past year, the once high-flying company has seen most of its top executives exit and a new slate of officers at the helm. In March, Dinesh Lathi was elevated to chief executive officer, replacing longtime chief Doug

Men’s Wear Makes Strong Showing at African Fashion Weeks

Mercedes-Benz Cape Town Fashion Week bowed last week, the third fashion week in Africa for the month of July alone. Perhaps indicative of the growing popularity of men’s wear in the African market, MBCTFW opened at its new venue at The Watershed along the V&A Waterfront with a show by Goose Homme Prorsum, a new label from young Cape Town designer Snorley McLarean. Other men’s wear designers who showed strong collections during the three-day event included Ruald Rheeder and Adriaan Kuiters.
According to Sizwe Nzimande, group marketing executive of African Fashion International, which owns MBCTFW, “We always look to provide a platform for up-and-coming designers to enhance and drive their careers in fashion.” Goose Homme Prorsum was, along with XIPIXI, one of the two designers who made their debut in Cape Town.
“I wanted to create a collection that would have people at the edge of their seats, and I think I’ve achieved that,” McLarean said. “I am still in shock that I was asked to be the opening event.”
Using fabric he’d been storing since 2010, including a chain-and-rope scarf print reminiscent of Gucci and Hermès that was tailored into a shirt-and-shorts ensemble, the former architecture student-turned-fashion designer explained that he was
