Supply chain issues pose challenges to mass beauty retail
While beauty has been a “bright spot” for major retailers in recent years, there are growing concerns that it won’t last long, especially as supply chain issues continue to plague the industry.

Exploring the rise of LoveShackFancy
Jessica Testa examines the growing popularity and success of clothing brand LoveShackFancy, especially during the pandemic, for The New York Times. “What happened [over the last few years] was a strategic shift driven by a few factors, including the realization by the owners of LoveShackFancy that its customers were behaving like fans,” Testa writes. “This culminated in net sales growth of approximately 125 percent from 2020 to 2021, the company said — but also a growing bewilderment among those outside its customer base. At a time marked by a pandemic, war, social strife and a generally incessant sense of doom, where did this beautiful, brash, money-rich and wholly ominous brand come from?” {The New York Times}
