According to the Huffington Post, Rachel Zoe‘s self-named fashion line is being dropped from Saks Fifth Avenue, and that “A rep from Saks confirmed that the line is no longer on sales floors and will retail online only.”
Ouch. And if you’re wondering what’s the big deal about that, let’s put it this way: if Rachel Zoe’s fashion line was a movie franchise, it just went straight to DVD, for Saks anyway. And that’s not even the worst of Zoe’s woe.
The Huffington Post is also reporting that the stylist turned designer’s brand has already been dropped from major retailer, Selfridges, while it is also selling poorly in Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom.
The news comes as a bit of a surprise since Zoe has had such huge success in her celebrity styling career and reality TV endeavor. We wonder why her A-list clientele isn’t scraping the pieces off the rack. Then again, ‘a designer a stylist does not make,’ as they’d say. And with the pu pu platter’s worth of seasoned lines from American, French, Italian fashion houses, and so on, for a shopper to choose from, we’re not surprised Rachel Zoe’s line has been left hanging.
