Bill Blass Officially Closing

>> Bill Blass has been on its last breath for a while now, particularly since Peter Som departed due to the brand's financial constraints in October.  Parent company Nexcen has been unable to sell the brand, and late last month, the brand was liquidated.  Now, reports come that the company will close its showroom and the remaining staff will leave this week.

The company canceled its Spring 2009 collection due to a severe cash squeeze, and Som was never replaced; Nexcen, who is still trying to sell Bill Blass in hopes that the runway collection will be revitalized, is to the point of selling samples from the Bill Blass archives at discounts of 90 percent.  A sad place for the iconic American brand, indeed — all we can hope for is that a buyer will come along and allow Blass to pull a Rochas.
