SKINNER’S NEW POST?: Robert C. Skinner Jr. no longer represents Kellwood Co. as a board member for the YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund, which met for lunch Friday, but he may soon bring Lacoste to the retail scholarship group’s partner list. Skinner, who held the top post at Kellwood Co. for four years until new owner Sun Capital Partners Inc. ousted him in July, is said to be close to being named chief executive officer of Lacoste USA. Skinner would replace the retiring Robert Siegel, who served with Skinner on Kellwood’s board. Lacoste declined comment, as did Skinner at YMA’s educators luncheon at the Marriott Marquis, which focused on expanding the fund’s reach. “We want to attract the best students from Procter & Gamble Co., Lehman Bros. and Goldman, Sachs & Co., which is a little easier after this week,” said YMA board member and Perry Ellis International group president Paul Rosengard.
