Lo, the Ron Johnson changes at JCP continue apace! Apple’s ex-retail guru has been notoriously overhauling the US high street megalith, to not exactly stunning sales results, but as his latest, and truly out-of-the-box move shows, he’s not backing off his radical revamp plans any time soon. This time round he’s decided JCP needs to join the high/low collaboration queue – you know, the H&M and Maison Martin Margiela, Target and Prabal Gurung, and so forth trend – and for his brand’s first foray, he has chosen to hook up with…wait for it…Duro Olowu. Who?
