Uniqlo and Lemaire Have a Winning Weekend Launch

Already committed to making the Uniqlo and Lemaire collaboration more than a one-season wonder, Uniqlo has added production runs for fall in advance of holiday sales.
Lines formed outside Uniqlo’s three Manhattan stores for Friday morning’s launch and some stores sold out of select items by lunchtime, according to Justin Kerr, director of merchandising. There were also lines intermittently throughout the weekend as stock was replenished, and a velvet rope was set up in the SoHo store to keep everyone orderly.
“It was our best example of how high the demand was. With this launch, we put up a special landing page 30 days before. It received such a strong reception from so many different people. We were really excited to see so much engagement before the collaboration started. That carried through to the online sales,” Kerr said. “We launched it at midnight on Thursday, and by 8 a.m. Friday there were very exciting results even in those eight hours when everyone was presumably sleeping. Some must have missed some sleep to order Lemaire.”
Knitwear and outerwear were the strongest categories, with a $ 170 cashmere blended robe coat and a $ 70 cashmere blend square sweater being two bestsellers. An assortment of the 31-piece

Winning The Long War: Amplifying Muslim Challenges To Al-qaeda

Winning The Long War: Amplifying Muslim Challenges To Al-qaeda

Criticism and condemnation of al-Qaeda that originate from the worldwide Muslim community present the most formidable challenge to its existence and legitimacy as an organization and movement. There is ample literature that questions whether or not there are Muslim challenges to the ideology and harmful acts of violent extremists such as al-Qaeda. However there is a growing body of literature from the worldwide Muslim community that challenges al-Qaeda. Consequently, challenges to al-Qaeda that originate from the worldwide Muslim community are critical because they are a component in any strategy to defeat al-Qaeda. The identification, amplification, and exploitation of these Muslim challenges will serve to defeat al-Qaeda. The purpose of this monograph is to determine the nature of this Muslim challenge to al-Qaeda. This is accomplished by analyzing the recent revisions of the former mujahid that helped create al-Qaeda and developed its jihadi ideology, Sayyid Imam. In these revisions entitled Rationalizing Jihad, Sayyid Imam criticizes and condemns al-Qaeda and other violent extremists. To determine the legitimacy of his revisions, the major themes of Rationalizing Jihad are compared to the prescriptions in classical Islamic jurisprudence. Sayyid Imam''s stature and influence within the mujahidin community is so great it prompted an immediate response from al-Qaeda''s intellectual leader and second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahiri. His response and that of nine other former and current mujahidin are analyzed in order to examine the rift in al-Qaeda''s jihadi ideology and challenges to its tactics, strategy, and ideology. Finally, five recent initiatives by respected and prominent members of the worldwide Muslim community are analyzed to demonstrate the Muslim challenge to al-Qaeda. These challenges from Sayyid Imam, the ideological rift among mujahidin such as al-Zawahiri, initiatives from the worldwide Muslim community, and the identification, amplification, and explo

When Losing Is Winning


“Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose
And most times you choose between the two.” – Carole King

I love my sister, Laura. After 34 years as a school social worker, she’s finally retired. Part of her bucket list is to attend the annual Martha’s Vineyard Agricultural Society Fair in late August. Previously, this wasn’t possible because she always had to be back at school in the early part of that month. This year our families’ summer trip to the island will include experiencing the charm of the Ag Fair for the first time.

Last March, when Laura read about the Ag Fair poster contest, she urged me to enter. If I won, it would be so much fun to see posters, featuring my art, hanging all over the island to advertise the fair. I was already envisioning how cute my grandsons would look wearing t-shirts displaying my design. The best part of all would be giving the framed original to my sister as a retirement gift.

I worked around the clock on my illustration to get it to the judges before the April 1st deadline. I was pleased with what I came up with and felt I had a real chance of winning.

On April 7th, I got a call letting me know that although my entry was a runner-up, it wasn’t chosen to represent the fair. At first, the news stung more than a little bit. After awhile, it came to me that this was not a loss. Granted my poster won’t be showcased around the island, but who cares? The important thing is the original art would be hanging on Laura’s wall. I knew all the hours spent creating it would make it even more special to her. As for the t-shirts? There was nothing stopping me from having them made for my favorite people, so I did.

Today, I’m even more sure that even though the poster competition didn’t go my way, it still worked out perfectly. None of our efforts in life are ever wasted. We can’t always see the reverberations of good intent, but they ripple forever outward just the same. Doing something out of love for another is no small thing. Winning and losing are all a matter of perception.


Getting a good photo of my grandsons wearing the Ag Fair t-shirts wasn’t easy.


My poster was designed around a snapshot of the ponies that live down the street.

Still Not Sure What to Get Dad for Father’s Day? You Can’t Go Wrong With These Winning Grooming Gifts


This article was written by Ahmed Zambarakji and was originally published on AskMen.

Still waiting on that nod of validation from your dad? You could be waiting a long time… but with Father’s Day around the corner, there are countless ways to bribe him into bonding with you again with these great father’s day gift ideas. Express your gratitude with a luxury shaving set, a fine fragrance or one of the other straightforward, upmarket and dad-friendly grooming options we’ve picked out.

Ultra-light Bai Ji Hydrator by Molton Brown


Molton Brown’s guy-friendly — and, crucially, age-appropriate — bestseller gets a rethink in time for Father’s Day. The Bai Ji moisturizer now comes in three different versions (an ultra-light cream, an extra-rich cream and a as an anti-fatigue eye gel), all formulated without parabens. Better yet, go the extra mile and get one of the beautifully packaged gift sets for men.

Incense & Cedrat Cologne by Jo Malone


Jo Malone juxtaposes smoky incense with a luminous citrus accord to striking effect in this new release. Elegant and deeply sensual, this fragrance has an oriental air to it that won’t go unnoticed. In order to protect the Boswellia Sacra (Frankincense) tree, which has been harvested for incense for thousands of years, the brand employed a new technology called NaturePrint to capture the scent without harming the environment.

Oliver Peoples Box Set by Byredo


Cooler (potentially younger) dads will already know about niche fragrance house Byredo and optical enthusiasts Oliver Peoples. The two brands have collaborated in a “synesthetic” project that demonstrates the influence of color on smell.

The new Oliver Peoples box set includes a pair of limited edition specs along with a bottle of Byredo’s new eau de parfum (also named Oliver Peoples — natch). The specs are available in three different photochromic lens colors including Indigo, Champagne and Green; the bottle will match the lens color you chose. The idea here is that the color you pick out will invariably have an effect on what you smell most in the multi-faceted fragrance. Weird but true. You may pick out anything from the juniper berries and Californian Lemon in the top of the fragrance to the musks, warm sand and patchouli that are deeper in the mix. And if the sensory illusion is completely lost on you, you can always buy the fragrance separately — it smells just as good without tinted specs.

Queen Sonja of Norway Meets Winning Printmakers

DESIGN BY NORWAY: Her Majesty Queen Sonja of Norway breezed into Scandinavia House Thursday to meet with the winning printmakers and founders of the award named in her honor. An artist in her own right, she spoke enthusiastically about the importance of art and design — at times standing near the numerous prints that she herself had created, including one called “Gala” and another entitled “Lightening.”
Andy Warhol painted Her Majesty in his heyday and she has amassed what is said to be an impressive art collection since that time. Standing with Svend-Allan Sorensen near his Henry David Thoreau-inspired work, she said she suggested he add ducks to the piece. The three thought-provoking frames carried the message, “The Bird is Gone and There is no Trace Beyond.”
The queen spoke with WWD about what New York-based designers might glean from Norway’s design brigade. “We are very aware of the whole attitude of design and design is very important. The Scandinavian look is very important — clear-cut, fresh colors, brave. There is something quite clear about Scandinavian art, as also in Finland’s glass, Norway the same, all the Scandinavian countries are obsessed with design really.”
As for what role art, fashion and design can alleviate people’s

11 Treats That Prove Japan Is Winning The Quirky Snack Food Game

It’s no secret that the Japanese have a penchant for over-the-top, verging-on-absurd creativity. This creativity can yield both bizarre and magical results.

Japanese snacks are no exception. Over the years, Japan has come out with some of the most interesting snack foods we’ve ever encountered. Some treats have stood the test of time, while others are limited edition treasures. The flavor combinations defy reason and the cuteness is off the charts, so Japan is basically like the mad scientist of the snack world.

We found 11 treats that prove Japan takes first prize in the quirky food game. Check them out below.

1. Happy Kitchen Cheeseburger

Move over Easy-Bake Oven, Happy Kitchen is in town. This DIY mini meal is completely edible. It will take you some time to create (some elements originate as a powder), and comes with a tiny, fizzy soda to quench your thirst after all your hard work.

2. Animal Donuts

Step your game up, Krispy Kreme. We want pink piggy donuts, and we want them now.

3. Kit Kats

Kit Kats in Japan have been taken to the next level. Refusing to settle for plain chocolate, customers in Japan have been able to enjoy creative flavors over the years, including green tea, soybean, blueberry cheesecake and grilled potato. If your taste buds are feeling particularly bold, go for the wasabi version.

japan kit kat

4. Moko Moko Mokolet (Also Known As…Toilet Candy)

Building a plastic toilet, filling it with fizzy candy liquid, and drinking said liquid out of the toilet bowl sounds a little weird. But it looks surprisingly delightful.

Exhibit A:

5. Pepsi

Pepsi seems to be quite experimental with its limited edition flavor releases in Japan. Salty Watermelon was short-lived but sounds potentially life-changing to us.

6. Mountain Dew Cheetos

Gamers, this one goes out to you.

7. Every Burger

It’s a tiny cookie sandwich with a chocolate “burger” and white chocolate “cheese.” The cute factor is through the roof. We’ll take 500, please.

8. Eel Soda

At one point in time, Japan had the perfect drink for those hot days when you’re just like, “Dang, I could really use an ice cold glass that tastes like liquid eel right now.” It was said to taste like (SURPRISE!) broiled eel.

eel drink

9. Kanikko

Don’t let the adorable (albeit cannibalistic) packaging deceive you, you’re eating scores of candied baby crabs who never stood a chance. Apparently they’re sweet, salty and majorly crunchy.

10. Cream Collon

In theory, this snack sounds pretty perfect. It’s a cookie tube filled with sugary cream — what could possibly go wrong?

The name. The name could go wrong.

11. Basashi Ice

This is ice cream made with raw horse meat. We’re not even going to pretend we’d give this a try.

Winning by Losing: Drop the Weight, Change Your Life

Losing has never felt better than with Jillian Michaels, the female fitness guru on Network Nine’s hit show The Biggest Loser, who presents a unique and comprehensive health and fitness program that will keep the pounds off for good. Jillian Michaels knows a thing or two about getting people to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle. In her new book, Winning by Losing, Jillian offers a comprehensive and integrated program that provides readers with a clear-cut path to total health. Unlike other popular diet books, Winning by Losing works from the inside out, combining a behavioral makeover with a unique diet plan and a no-gimmick workout. The book is divided into three parts: "Self," "Science," and "Sweat." "Self" focuses on behavior patterns, and shows how unchecked urges and emotional roadblocks lead to unhealthy eating habits. Jillian will help readers address and overcome these issues completely, an accomplishment that is the first and most crucial step towards leading a healthier lifestyle. "Science" is the book’s nutritional facet, in which Jillian teaches readers how to create their own personalized diets. This section will help readers identify their own unique biochemical and metabolic needs, arming them with the knowledge they need to formulate a diet plan far more effective than generic ones offered in other books. "Sweat" utilizes Jillian’s expertise to give readers an integrated workout program that combines the most effective elements of different training styles. It doesn’t promise to be easy – but it works and lasts. While there are several recognizable men at the top of the fitness guru chain, including Bill Phillips and Jorge Cruise, this category has yet to see a new female occupy the spotlight. Jillian Michaels is attractive, knowledgeable, and dynamic, and is the perfect candidate to be the next big thing in fitness/health books.
