Another Bankruptcy Tale : Marck Ecko

November 16, 2009
Marc Ecko Hosts "All In For Tikva" Casino Night

I didnt even seen it passing in my news channel, so many bankruptcy tales are going on thanks to the recession that  its  impossible to keep it up with all.While i was browsing the medialanscape to get my traditionnal morning news i stumbled up on an article from the NYP reporting the lost control of Marck Ecko’own brand last september of this year.

As reported the hip-hop clothing kingpin  signed over a 51 percent interest in the Marc Ecko brand to Iconix, a New York company that owns a slew of fashion brands including Joe Boxer, Candie’s, Rocawear and London Fog.Ecko this year had laid off workers and auctioned off his watch trademarks and Avirex brand to raise cash in order to pay creditors.

Why is that a surprise ? Marcko made his way through  fashion retailing because  at the time he had a very good concept and there was an untaped market for urban clothing.Since things has evolved, he became a big spending party boy wich itself has completely thrown him out of touch with the “real urban market”.As an economist told me once the sole key to make your business profitable is control and reduce small costs like paper, power, cars, leases, pen…its theses insignificants costs once managed that make your way to fortune.Hence why Si Newhouse canceled Conde Nast’s famous Christmas lunch for the second year in a row and  hired a crisis management expert to reduce drasticaly costs, read no more “Pellegrino, Orangina, Red Bull, Fidji water” for Condenast cafeteria.

Sources said Ecko is still struggling to lease out pieces of his luxurious 280,000- square-foot headquarters in Midtown, which houses everything from a recording studio to a basketball court.Basically, Marck Ekco is best single encapsulated by all the things you should avoid to do once you head a business.

“I’ve had a crazy, wild ride. I’ve done a lot of things that have been naive,” Ecko told The Post. “I’ll take my lumps for a lot of things that, in retrospect, were a little indulgent. Life happens. I don’t regret any of it.”

Eva Mendes Is Too Hot For SOHO (NYC) !

November 8, 2009

*Nov 03 - 00:05*

I was pretty surprised when I saw this ad the other day. It’s like we’re back to the Jesse Helms days where we have advertising that’s baiting censorship for sensationalism.Below, find the other controvercial Ad portraying a threesome which ran in NYC because NYC is the largest city in the US, and it was guaranteed to be noticed by hundreds of people.But let’s face it, sex has been used as an advertising tool for a really long time and its works well…case in point everyone in the city is goshing about .

A sexy new Calvin Klein billboard in the heart of SoHo is drawing the ire of some spectators – and lifting the spirits of others.The underwear ad shows a sweaty, glistening Eva Mendes in sheer lingerie, tugging at the boxer briefs of a studly man.The sultry billboard on Houston and Lafayette Sts. is one of a series of Calvin Klein ads that has raised eyebrows in the neighborhood.

“Some of us don’t want to expose our kids to something like this – it’s borderline pornography,” said Carl Wilson, 55, an MTA worker from Queens.

“I think it’s sexy as hell,” said Carlos Gamez, 24, who works at the nearby Adidas store. “It makes me want to go out and buy some drawers like that. This one was way sexier than any before.”

Calvin Klein pulled an orgy-themed ad in June after taking heat from neighbors and a Christian advocacy group. That billboard showed a teenage girl in a threesome with two young men – and another passed out nearby. Fans of the sexy ads say the new one is hotter than any that came before.

“It looks great, this new one. It’s more sexy then the ones before,” said Pepito Patamine. 48, of Queens. “If they want to sell panties, it’s perfect.”

Calvin Klein has a long history of advertisements that push the envelope. They pioneered the “heroin chic” look in the 1990s with strung-out-looking models, complete with pale skin and dark circles under their eyes. A Calvin Klein television ad featuring Mendes was banned from American airwaves last year. NYdailynews.com
