Courting Jankovic... Karl's Take on Hogan... Gilt's Unbelievably Good Prices...

Jelena Jankovic, the U.S. Open’s number-two seed, cooled her heels Wednesday in Stuart Weitzman's Madison Avenue store.

ANSWERING BACK: Dolce & Gabbana has spoken up about its recent split with Selfridges. On Thursday, the company said space — or lack thereof — was at the heart of the problem. “Given the unavailability in Selfridges stores of ideal spaces which could fit with Dolce & Gabbana and D&G brands’ levels and expectations, the group decided to discontinue the distribution of both brands’ collections through the department store,” the company said. “This decision is consistent with the group’s constant work to always ensure the best expression of brand and to preserve its image.”

Last month, Selfridges said it was “unable to accommodate” the Dolce & Gabbana brands due to the evolving demands of its fashion and accessories departments. Dolce & Gabbana executives were said to be disgruntled that the two collections’ locations in the store had been moved. The last Dolce & Gabbana collections to be carried by Selfridges will be for fall.
