    sorry!

    TOKYO–Uniqlo said Tuesday that it has tapped French fashion brand Lemaire to design a special men’s and women’s collection for its stores.

    The Japanese fast-fashion giant said the new collection will launch for fall-winter 2015. A Uniqlo spokesman said the results of the debut collection will determine whether or the collaboration will continue for future seasons. He declined to release further details on the partnership.

    “Lemaire’s approach to design respects individuality and merges perfectly with the Uniqlo LifeWear philosophy, aimed at making life better,” said Tadashi Yanai, chairman, president and chief executive of Fast Retailing, Uniqlo’s parent company.

    Lemaire designers Christophe Lemaire and Sarah-Linh Tran said they have always dreamt of working with Uniqlo.

    “Uniqlo designs qualitative and made for all garments for everyday life. It is also our approach to fashion, and the philosophy of Lemaire,” the designers said.

    The latter is almost assuredly true.


    What killed Detroit is that in the end the cars could be built by anybody, but this is already true in the tech industry. Apple designs stuff in Cupertino and then sends the specs off to China for production.

    I wouldn't worry about technology shifting either. Keep in mind that Silicon Valley has reinvented itself several times over the past 40 years. Probably what they succeed at best is creating new technology and then adapting that technology in response to how people want to use it.

    What the Bay-Area Tech Industrial Complex (BATIC) really has to worry about is losing its edge in terms of recruiting the world's talent. So long as the United States is able to maintain a world class (mind you I didn't say "the best") university system that can attract the best math and science students, this probably won't be too big of a concern. Once they can get the people into the U.S, it's pretty easy (though not as easy as it used to be) to keep them here.

    Most of the incumbents are well aware of this risk - that's why they all run on-site labs in those countries where there's talent. China is interesting (see Qualcomm and Intel) but I'll assert that the West will continue to win until the other countries trying to compete truly embrace immigrants/engineering talent in the same way. When the MIT kids start talking jobs in China rather than the Valley you know you're fucked. But that's not happening anytime soon.

    Automation is a good thing. Adapt or be left behind.

    That, and American cars suck, in general. I'm still amazed by what is passed off as functional design.

    Am I wrong in preferring brown RO sneakers to black?

    Brown really brings out their Steve Madden-i-ness.

    How much would that industry be worth if it didn't generate the absurd exuberance it does now? 10% of it's value, less?

    I'd guess, as a whole, a lot more. But we'll see. If we actually knew, we'd probably have a much better chance of being jabillionaires.

    This is right after it was done. After I've worn them a bit the new sole blends right in.

    The current backlash against and distrust of science and technology in the states is baffling and depressing.

    As Fok said: software/IT, energy, materials, biotech etc. should all be worth even more than they are now.

    The only problem here is that pigs are intelligent, but bacon is delicious.



    I would assume she could teleport wherever she wanted to go. Either that or levitate and fly.



    It depends on the quality of the tomatoes used in the sandwich.
