Davis shoes

When a marketing executive from Ugg, Simple and Reebok goes out on her own, you know it will be interesting.  Buth Ruthie Davis' new line, Davis, is sporty, dressy and fashionable, and very high-tech.   Titanium and carbon fiber create high heels and wedges that are both strong and lightweight.  The unique look is finished off with metallic, patent leather and rubber.

New Shop in NYC

Emerge NYC, below (in a New York Times photo), is said to be a new concept in department store shopping.  Each brand is the focus of a booth or display case.  The catch is that these aren't established brands, and instead are the creations of emerging designers.  Nothing has been mass-produced (designers are sometimes working away on-site) and apparel, accessories, art, cosmetics, flowers and limited-edition books are included in the offerings.

Carrier has a padded back panel that fits the shape pf any adult body while comfortably holding kids up to forty pounds.  Like Kelty's real hiking gear, the pack has a sternum strap and thick waist belt to shift some of the pressure off of the back.  A pouch that zips out of the back of the pack carries diapers and toys.
