>> And another one bites the dust. Just shortly after Milla Jovovich laid Jovovich-Hawk to rest, Jane Mayle has decided after ten years to call it quits on her contemporary line Mayle.
The holiday-resort collection will be Mayle's last. The closure is not for financial reasons — the designer told WWD her business is healthier than ever — but rather due to the accelerating fashion calendar:
The customer gets tired before the collections even hit stores . . . That mystery and remoteness and insouciance have disappeared from fashion in order to accelerate the product. I feel I have just become another cog in that machinery.
Mayle wouldn't disclose what she has in the works next, but hasn't ruled out fashion altogether.
