Jill Stuart Celebrates Debut of Diffusion Collection

Retailers, media and influencers gathered Tuesday night at Primo’s in New York to celebrate the introduction of Jill Jill Stuart, a diffusion ready-to-wear line that launched for spring.
Jill Jill Stuart features Stuart’s feminine aesthetic in dresses and separates at a more accessible price point. The collection’s sweet spot is between $ 269 and $ 369, and it is being sold at retailers such as Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, Shopbop and Nordstrom.
Jill Stuart’s main collection, which is priced 50 percent higher, has completely different distribution and is sold at specialty boutiques.
Jill Jill Stuart, which covers many of the sportswear categories, hopes to eventually expand into knits and denim. The spring collection features Stuart’s signature floral prints, flowy feminine separates, flirty eyelets and a variety of polka dot prints.

“This ready-to-wear line was created because I wanted to bring my signature looks and style to a wider audience. With the urging and encouragement from retailers, it seemed to be the right time,” said Jill Stuart. “Also, we are excited to partner with Afterpay as we strive to attract a broader audience and cater to Millennials’ purchasing patterns and needs.” Afterpay allows customers to buy right away and pay in installments.

Judith Leiber to Offer Diffusion Line in 2018

The Judith Leiber brand will begin offering a diffusion line next year.
The initial collection, all priced at less than $ 1,000, will be for handbags. The sweet spot for the handbag line is expected to be around $ 400 to $ 500. The sales team is selling into the collection, so the actual launch date in 2018 — whether for spring or later in the year — is yet to be determined. The move to include a secondary line is part of Authentic Brands Group’s vision to position the brand as an affordable lifestyle brand. There are plans to include footwear and ready-to-wear to turn that vision into a reality.
ABG is the brand management firm that acquired the company in 2013.

“Primacoustic Broadway 12″” x 12″” Scatter Blocks, Diffusion Absorptive Panels, Box of 24, 1″” Black”


Broadway Scatter Blocks present an ‘easy to install’ solution for acoustic treatment where you want to control sound, but do not want to eliminate the natural ambiance. High density absorptive panels The ultimate in Soft Diffusion? Easy to install on practically any surface Great looking patterns and colors Made from high density 6 pound per cubic foot high density fiberglass, Scatter Blocks are designed to be randomly spaced on large wall surfaces to create an effect we call Soft Diffusion; an affordable alternative to full scale quadratic diffusion. By leaving reflective spaces in between the panels, some energy is absorbed while some is left to reflect back into the room. This helps control flutter echo and reduces standing waves while leaving a sense of ‘air’ or space in the room. This makes the Scatter Blocks an excellent choice in live-end, dead-end designs such as in studios and home theatres while also providing a cost effective alternative for larger spaces such as music practice rooms, dance studios, fitness centers and classrooms that need to be tamed in effort to reduce the reverberant time. Broadway Scatter Blocks come in choice of 2 thicknesses and 3 colors and are quickly mounted using Primacoustic Surface Impalers.
