Sean John Takes Macy’s by Storm

Designer Sean Combs has recently inked an exclusive deal with Macy’s Department stores to carry his Sean John men’s line starting this October. Macy’s will also establish Sean John shops in its flagship stores in New York City, Miami, Chicago, and California as part of the deal. The deal was announced in NYC at The Standard Hotel by designer Sean Combs, Macy’s chairman and CEO Terry Lundgren, and Macy’s chief merchant Jeff Gennette. Sean John is currently in 400 Macy’s outlets and through this deal the line could possibly go to all of the stores in the chain. If so Sean John will join the ranks of other exclusive brands carried by Macy’s such as Tommy Hilfiger, Diesel, and Ellen Tracy just to name a few. Combs is quoted as saying that his Sean John line has made a billion dollars with Macy’s and he wants to make billions more. He also went on to say that he got his start at Macy’s selling shirts and ties at 16 in the New Rochelle, NY store and that to come full circle like this is a dream come true. His Sean John Fifth Avenue flagship store will of course continue to carry his men’s line as well.

W Goes Gaga for Yaya

In 2004 America’s Next Top Model introduced us to a stand out, jaw dropping beauty with a name that was as unusual as her soft subtle features. I am of course speaking about Yaya DaCosta who in spite of coming in second place in the (ANTM) competition left a far greater impression than the victor.  Fast forward to 2010 where Ms. DaCosta is now practically a household name or at least a familiar face who has repped popular products such as Garnier Fructis, Dr. Scholl’s, and Olay, and Izaac Mizrahi.  She has also graced the pages of such publications as Elle Girl, Jewel, and Essence magazines.  She has also shared screen time with Antonio Banderas in Take the Lead and currently with Mark Ruffalo in the 2010 film The Kids Are Alright.  She just recently joined the cast of the popular daytime television soap All My ChildrenW Magazine just paid homage to her as one of 2010’s fastest and talented rising stars on the move.  We found the piece to be especially appealing as Yaya chose to be her all natural self, hair and all.  We at NETERAL thought that she outshined the pages of W with such beauty and grace that we had to also pay homage to this sister on the rise.  Our message to Yaya “no sky, no limit”.
