Juicy Couture's founders, Gela Nash-Taylor and Pamela Skaist-Levy—a.k.a The Juicies—don't have anything to do with Juicy Couture anymore. So, word on the street has it that the delightful duo may launch a new fashion venture—just as soon as their non-compete with Liz Claiborne (who bought Juicy and subseuently installed Erin Fetherston as its consulting designer) expires in a few months. WWD reports: "'It will reflect the way we dress now,' said Skaist-Levy, who was dressed in a vintage Dior full-skirted houndstooth frock at a recent ladies lunch. 'We have outgrown our track suits and grown up.' In addition to a myriad of vintage pieces, Skaist-Levy and Nash-Taylor also favor furry jackets and vests by Lanvin and Burberry, black leather pants and leggings, and sky-high heels. No doubt a seamstress is hard at work stitching up some posh-meets-rocker samples for an imminent debut." We can't wait! [WWD]
