H&M'S SALES GROWTH CONTINUES TO SLOW

Is fast fashion starting to peak? After slowing sales numbers lead to closures of Uniqlo stores earlier this year, H&M released its first half-year report of 2016 on Wednesday, and the numbers are not what they once were. 

Blaming cold spring weather and a strong U.S. dollar for a slow second quarter, H&M CEO Karl-Johan Persson says, "The sales increase in March and April was significantly below our plan." Sales were up just 5 percent for the second quarter — the weakest in three years — with profit reaching about 7 billion kronor ($850 million). That's quite a bit less than the company's projected 7.23 billion kronor. This follows a steep decline in profitfor the first quarter of the year.

Of course, it's not all bad news for the fast fashion sector: H&M rival Zara is experiencing huge global sales increases, perhaps due to its ability to turn inventory around more quickly as climate demands it. Uniqlo, though it may not be growing as rapidly as it hoped, recently brought on Christophe Lemaireto serve as artistic director. H&M still plans to complete its roll out of 425 new stores this year, in addition to expanding e-commerce into new markets: Canada and South Korea will be next.

‘Dangerous Woman’ singer Ariana Grande graces the May 28, 2016, cover ofBillboard Magazine wearing white-framed Chanel sunglasses, an H. Stern necklace, Tacori rings and Harry Kotlar earrings. Inside the magazine, Ariana poses for Joe Pugliese in towel clad looks while rocking her signature high ponytail.

In the interview, Ariana Grande talks about feminism, pointing out how a UK radio station praised Justin Bieber and Zayn Malik for going shirtless but criticized MileyCyrus and Kim Kardashian for doing the same. “If you’re going to rave about how sexy a male artist looks with his shirt off,” Grande says, “and a woman decides to get in her panties or show her boobies for a photo shoot, she needs to be treated with the same awe and admiration. I will say it until I’m an old-ass lady with my t°°s out at Whole Foods.”
