It's finally here! For any fans of early Juicy Couture, you'll be excited to hear that the original Juicies—Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor, who sold JC to Liz Claiborne in 2003 and left the brand in early 2010—have just announced the fall 2012 launch of their new label, Skaist-Taylor.
“We created the number-one fragrance. We built a brand that changed the way people dressed. But we didn’t set out to do that. We just set out to make clothes we wanted, and we’re going to do that again,” Skaist-Levy told WWD.
What will the new clothes look like? "We are California-centric," Nash-Taylor told WWD. "The line is autobiographical." It will comprise T-shirts, outerwear, pants, and knits—great basics and cool jackets priced from $175 to $3,000 (for coats).
