Cookie Lyon Will Rule Saks Fifth Avenue



Saks Fifth Avenue goes to the hood. Or rather, Cookie brings the hood to Saks. I lol’d when I read that the bastion of luxury retail would curate a collection based on the hit ghetto-fabulous TV series Empire.  Saks’ edited narrative features the designs of Jimmy Choo, Alexis Bittar, Cushnie et Ochs and MCM to name a few. Not bad.

Now, we all know how Cookie dresses. It will be a feat of miracles that Saks can keep their windows from looking like an overwrought heap of knockoffs from Canal Street with a touch of 90’s era Lil Kim. The pieces look good from what I see in the press release. I only wish there was an Ode to BooBoo Kitty and Tiana, both opportunities to take advantage of Saks enviable contemporary collections. The windows will be up from September 10 through October 7 and coincides with the start of the new season for the show.
