Forbes journalist Lauren Sherman wrote an interesting piece on the buying power of hipsters as seen by the booming sales of Urban Outfitters and the attendance of certain Fashion Week happenings. It's bit jumbled to us, the fact that trendsetters are described as those wearing stovepipe jeans and flannels and then everyone from Jefferson Hack to a person who shops at Urban Outfitters a la the mall are included in this grouping. But the point is that the young, left-of-center fashion kids want to spend money on clothing because being different all the time means shopping often.

New York Mag is the closest we come to any kind of celebrity-centered journalism and this morning there's some instant gratification on the front page. Someone put together a slideshow of Anna Wintour's possible successors and it's a whopping six slides long. We're not suggesting that there are more out there, but six slides isn't going to add up to a ton of pageviews which is why, we assume, the darn thing was created in the first place. Anyway...speaking of Anna Wintour and Carine Roitfeld there's a New York versus Paris exhibit uptown

Uniqlo's Japan sales are up by a whopping 20 percent for the month of September. The Japanese retail climate is just as stifled as all of those Western brick and mortars but the company attributes the jump to an early drop in temperatures and their aggressive advertising strategies. We think a brand like Uniqlo is just the kind of place people shop when they've stopped consuming from other retailers, but yeah, maybe it's just the change in weather.

As far as Great Britain mass market retailers go, Vogue has taken a moment to lament their continued decline. Most significant is that of Miss Sixty who is facing a hefty and unmanageable debt to their Italian parent company.
