• Pierre Cardin’s label turns 60 today, and the 88-year-old designer is celebrating by throwing his first runway show in a decade. He’s a little embarrassed by the designs that are currently produced under his name: "Unfortunately, they [my licensees] produce very classic outfits for men. I wish they picked up my designs. Instead, they produce this fusty, bourgeois stuff. It drives me to desperation, because I bring them my original designs to copy. That is the purpose of their licenses. We really need someone to drum up new licenses there. They could make a killing, because my designs are very youthful. All you see is these old Hart Schaffner Marx suits for old men. It makes me ashamed to even look at them." [WWD]

• JCPenney plans to open 75 new stores in the next four years in the hopes of generating $1 billion in sales growth. [WWD]
