Céline Dion Collection Tops $10 Million Sales, Eyes Asia Growth

HONG KONG–It’s not yet been a full year since singing legend Céline Dion launched her eponymous bag and accessories line, but after an initial launch in North America, the brand is mapping out ambitions to cultivate the Asian market.
Innee-Sedona International, the Asia partner for Bugatti Group which co-owns of the Celine Dion Collection, said with sales that have topped $ 10 million after just three collections, the company is now setting up an Asian distribution network in earnest. 
“Celine, her fanbase is worldwide,” said Jennifer Chan, Bugatti Group managing director. “We can see in Hong Kong a lot of people know her and we were surprised. In China, a lot of people may not know her name but they know her songs as she was in the 2013 Spring Gala with Song Zuying.”
Dion took the stage for CCTV’s annual New Year Gala special, one of the most widely watched programs on Chinese television, singing in Mandarin.
Positioned slightly below Michael Kors and Coach, the collection is also expected to get some uplift in the region as the singer begins an international tour. Last week, she announced concerts across seven Asian cities starting in June.

Comebacks To Unsolicited Sales Callers

Here are some suggested comebacks to unsolicited, persistent telephone sales callers:

~ “I’m sorry, but I’m really busy right now. Give me your home number and I’ll call you back later tonight.”

~ In the middle of the caller’s memorized sales pitch, interrupt with: “What causes a hiccup?”

~ “Shhh. Wait a minute. I’m here robbing the house. Whoa! I think the owners just got home. Can you hold?”

~ When someone asks whether a spouse is at home: “Yes, but I never allow him/her to talk to strangers.”

~ When someone asks how you are: “Well, I’m having an existential crisis at the moment. Let me explain . . .”

~ “You want to sell me insurance? I’ve been trying to get insurance for years, but nobody will sell me any!”

~ Another response to rug-cleaners or any person offering home services: (Break into tears and say) “Is this some kind of joke? My house burned down
last night! We lost everything!”

~ To a phone company solicitor: “That sounds GREAT! Wait, can you hold for a minute?” (Leave the phone off the hook until he/she hangs up.)

~ Use your touch-tone phone to annoy the caller by playing “Mary Had a Little Lamb”:

Milly Sets Strategy With In-House Sales, Fashion Presentation

NEW YORK — Now in its 17th year, Milly is making moves to strengthen its brand.
The privately owned advanced contemporary sportswear company based here absorbed its sales agency, L’Atelier Group, which has been handling Milly’s ready-to-wear sales from the get-go and brought it in-house. Keith Nuss, owner of L’Atelier, has joined Milly as vice president of sales and has brought along one associate director, two account executives and one assistant account executive to join the firm’s existing sales staff of four people.
Over the years, L’Atelier has cultivated strong relationships with specialty stores and has handled sales for such brands as Ramy Brook, James Perse, Earl Jeans, Splendid and Chip & Pepper.
“We convinced Keith to close his business and join our business. He has rich relationships with retailers,” said Andrew Oshrin, cofounder, chief executive officer and president of Milly. Oshrin said he would usually go to every large market appointment that L’Atelier, which was based in the same neighborhood, would have.
To accommodate the rtw sales team, Milly has taken over more space at its headquarters at 265 West 37th Street. The company, which has 16,000 square feet on the 19th and 20th floors, has leased an additional 4,000 square feet on the 19th floor. Milly

Early Sales Predictions For The Game’s ‘The Documentary 2’ Are In

(AllHipHop News) It appears L.A. rapper The Game is competing against pop princess Selena Gomez for the #1 album in the country at the moment. Hits Daily Double has the early predictions for the two performer’s first week album sales.

[ALSO READ: The Game Disses Young Thug During Concert Performance (VIDEO)]

According to the industry website, Game’s latest effort The Documentary 2 is looking to sell between 60,000-70,000 albums with close to 75,000-85,000 sales plus streaming. Gomez’s Revival is slightly ahead of Game’s pace at the moment. The former Disney star’s second solo album is currently predicted to move 75,000-85,000 units, 85,000-95,000 SPS. Toby Keith’s 35 MPH Town could be in the running as well.

The Documentary 2 is being released in two parts. The first installment hit stores on October 9. The Documentary 2.5 is scheduled to be released on October 16. If the sequel to Game’s 2005 LP takes the top spot on the album chart, it will be the fourth number one album of his career.

Drake & Future’s ‘WATTBA’ Suffers One Of The Worst Sales Drops In Hip Hop History

(AllHipHop News) It appears all the hype over Drake and Future’s collaborative project What A Time To Be Alive is waning. Drizzy Hendrix had the internet going crazy as speculation something big was coming from the two stars, and when WATTBA finally hit iTunes fans gave the project one of the biggest sales weeks of the year (334,000 pure albums).

[ALSO READ: Future & Drake’s “What A Time To Be Alive” First Week Sales Predictions Drop]

However, week 2 was not as big for Drake and Future. The project pushed just 65,000 copies in its sophomore week. That accounts for an 81% drop in sales, one of the worst declines for a #1 album from a debut week to a second week in Hip Hop history.

Other top-selling albums to see a significant fall in sales its next week are Mac Miller’s Blue Slide Park (83% –  144,000 to 25,000), Kanye West’s Yeezus (80% – 327,000 to 65,000), Jay Z’s Kingdom Come (79% – 680,000 to 140,000), and Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (78% – 496,000 to 108,000).

Drake and Future were able to remain in the Top 5 in their second week. Thanks in part to streaming totals, What A Time landed at #2. Fetty Wap’s self-titled album is currently at #1.

News in Brief: Report: Increase In Gun Sales To Be Most Concrete Result Of Obama’s Pro-Gun-Control Speech

WASHINGTON—Researchers at the Urban Institute published a study Friday confirming that a sharp increase in gun sales nationwide would be the most concrete result of the impassioned pro-gun-control speech that President Obama delivered following yesterday’s mass shooting in Oregon. “According to our analysis, by far the most tangible impact of the president emotionally urging the nation to consider how their votes can prevent mass shootings like this will be a 17 percent spike in revenue for firearm vendors across the U.S.,” said report co-author Kyle Bieler, who found a direct link between the estimated $ 58 million uptick in gun sales over the next month and Obama’s use of the phrases “common-sense legislation,” “only advanced country,” and “not enough.” “The portion of the president’s remarks in which he asked for support from state legislatures and governors will, based on our projections, nearly double the number of …

Fetty Wap’s Album Expected To Open At #1; Drake & Future’s Sales Numbers Drop

(AllHipHop News) Fetty Wap is set to add a #1 album to his list of accomplishments this year. Billboard reports the New Jersey representative is looking to push around 110,000 equivalent album units of his self-titled LP. That should be enough to land Fetty in the pole position on the Billboard 200 album chart.

[ALSO READ: Fetty Wap’s Chart Domination Includes ‘Hot 100’ Milestone Not Achieved In A Decade]

According to HitsDailyDouble, Fetty Wap only sold close to 60,000 pure albums. The rest of the 110,000 units came from track equivalent album and streaming equivalent album totals.

Last week’s top project came from Drake and Future. The duo’s What A Time To Be Alive is looking to fall to #2 on the album chart. The joint effort opened with 375,000 units (334,000 pure album sales).

The equivalent album units estimates for WATTBA have not been released yet, but the traditional album sales for the mixtape are nearing 60,000 copies. That would be an 80% drop in sales in one week.

What Vogue Editors Are Coveting from the End-of-Summer Sales

MSDCLUE EC002

The end-of-summer sales tend to create a catch-22 scenario for even the most seasoned of shoppers. It is all too easy to throw caution to the wind in the face of racks upon racks (or, pages upon pages, if online shopping is your thing) of clearance items and not let record-low sale prices pass you by. Yet with the influx of fall fashion just around the corner, the challenge of delaying gratification seems an equally worthy undertaking. When it comes to confidently navigating end-of-summer markdowns, whose lead better to follow than that of Vogue editors?

It seems the key to it all is keeping your cool without engaging in total self-abnegation—close out the summer season by investing in high-style steals that prove discount indulgences needn’t be impulsive. Here, from a Dolce & Gabbana bikini to Prada pumps, see the sale pieces we scored.

How to Score the Best, Last Deals of the Season: The Ultimate Guide to the Final Sales at Barneys, Saks, and Bergdorf

Shopping

For all the joys of online shopping, sometimes you get tired of tromping to the UPS store, returning all those boxes full of dreams you clicked on with such hope and pathetic anticipation just a day or two before. There are times when you long to shop the old-fashioned way—to touch and try on a glittering prize right before you buy it, to wallow in the pure pleasure of a brick-and-mortar Valhalla.

To that end, and to celebrate the final markdowns of the season, I set out to explore the slashed priced possibilities at three iconic Manhattan department stores—Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, and Barneys New York. At Saks, my first stop, sale items are a healthy 70 percent off, which means a cherry-infused Nina Ricci slip dress is now a delightful $ 387, and a deliberately huge Givenchy polo with a flowered border and an American rainbow flag patch (bet you don’t already have something like this) is an encouraging $ 267. If I am not citing original prices here, it is because they are not always visible on the tags. In fact, the final price can frequently only be discerned by a helpful salesperson scanning the tag, which is how I learn that a silk Burberry blouse printed with a map of London is now $ 238, a pair of heavily decorated Junya jeans are $ 327, and an incredibly lovely white McQueen cotton dress—perfect for summer!—is $ 598. But there is a thorn in this garden—Saks has a Final Sale policy, which for a serial shopping bulimic myself (I have been known to buy, return, and then rebuy on more than one occasion) is a rather daunting prospect.

Over at Bergdorf Goodman, the liberal return policy we have come to associate with department stores is still in place. There is 75 percent off here, which means a Prada coat in a gray Russian Constructivist print with silver piping—a real statement piece—is now $ 1,779, still fairly hefty, but comparing well to the original price of $ 7,130. A tweedy black and white Proenza Schouler overcoat, to throw over everything you own, is $ 739, down from $ 2,950, and a Céline peacoat with big satiny buttons lifted from a tuxedo is $ 1,289 instead of $ 3,250. If you want to spend far less, there’s a white shift from The Row for $ 299, and at least two variations of silky tropical print trousers—turquoise and maroon from Dries Van Noten for $ 459, and emblazoned with chrysanthemums by Erdem, for $ 299.

At my last stop, Barneys, the tag prices—well, when one can find the tags—are 60 percent off, but a last-minute perusal of its website this morning indicates that many items have just now dropped an additional 15 percent. (However, a deep throat in the store tells me that some things are resting at 70 off.) So by the time you read this, tariffs will surely be at least slightly less than the prices quoted here. In any case, when I visit, an olive cotton knit affair by Isabel Marant, either a long tee or a short dress, is $ 99. (If, despite your best efforts, a T-shirt still makes you look like someone who forgot to get dressed in the morning, you have 30 days to return sale items.) Two Sacai dresses catch the eye—one, an elaborate gray sweater with oddly charming printed chiffon panels, experimental enough for very creative black tie, is now $ 909; another, a short tee-dress in navy with satin trim, is only $ 129. And in the event that merely keeping warm has become your top priority this week, a wooly pinkish sweater from Thakoon Addition, for a very comfortable $ 289, would be ideal for snuggling around the fireplace—or at least the space heater.
