New York–It was a week for looking ahead but also reviewing the past. For forward thinkers, there’s our upcoming Spring/Summer 2014 Trend Webinar that projects what accessories styles will be important next year. Then there’s the Luxury Institute study that reveals affluent consumers plan to spend less on jewelry and handbags the rest of this year (say it isn’t so!). And, of course, we’ll all be looking forward to more from designer Phillip Lim, who the CFDA named as Accessories Designer of the Year.

To review some spectacular accessories, the Museum of Art and Design is paying tribute to the magnificent jewelry of  socialite Barbara Berger. A better-than-expected report on May comparable store sales surely brought a smile to many retailers. The news is good enough to make one take a second look into the National Retail Federation’s new retail job website.
