Lorenzo Martone and his business partner Ryan Brown are closing their talent agency, Arc NY, which they founded together in 2009; Martone says their decision to split was mutual and amicable (that line sounds familiar). The agency was best known for signing a number of successful models, most notably Alessandra Ambrosio and Irina Shayk. Anyway, on a positive note, now Martone can focus his energy on even more exciting projects, like his Nycked swimwear line! Goodness knows the world needs more poolside-to-date-night transitional outfits — particularly sparkly ones.
