Does Anyone Care About American Apparel Anymore?

There’s a new American Apparel story every day: Last week,the Seattle Times wrote, “American Apparel’s new CEO brings order to company chaos.” The New York Post noticed that Versace had knocked off an American Apparel t-shirt. On Wednesday, Jezebel asked, “What the hell is going on with American Apparel?” Later that same day, The New York Times wrote, “American Apparel to Lay Off 180 Workers.” A few months after the Dov Charney shakedown, the brand is gunning for a makeover.

Fiesta For Your Feet

Huaraches get a festive makeover from Soiyl

We have a soft spot in our summertime footwear lineup for huaraches, those woven leather Mexican sandals that the Beach Boys sang about in the 1960s and the fashionable set has been wearing ever since.

Now local designer Dolores Melgoza has made the hipster classic even groovier with her Soiyl shoes. The daughter of parents from Michoacán, Mexico, Melgoza coined her brand’s name as a riff on “soil,” since these kicks are so lightweight, they almost feel like you’re going barefoot. The solid tan, brown and black leather styles suit minimalists; the Samara is girly-pretty with its blues and purples; and the Mazanilla is a fiesta of bright red, green and yellow.
