For the Fall 2011 Collection look book Gourmet traveled to Northern California, more specifically the town of Los Altos Hills. Gourmet speaks about the background story of this upcoming shoot: “the shoot is a man obsessed, obsessed with Gourmet shoes. The book not only features the surroundings and environment of a highly educated man of taste, but if you look closely, in almost every room, the man has dozens and dozens and dozens of Gourmet shoes. So many in fact they do not fit in his closets. They are in his study, his bedroom, his maids quarters and his wine cellars. The concept was chosen to portray an aspirational vibe. One that shows Gourmet on the highest level.” Look for the Fall 2011 collection to release next month.

Groupon‘s long-awaited IPO won’t come until mid to late September thanks to some back-and-forth with the Securities and Exchange Commission over the company’s accounting, according to a report.
The SEC is discussing “self-selected financial metrics” the company included in its pre-IPO paperwork, according to a report that aired Wednesday on CNBC. (The video is available below.)
A Groupon rep declined to comment, citing a quiet period for the company.
According to the report, the SEC is discussing Groupon’s S-1 and suggesting changes to improve it. In mid-July, Groupon filed an amended S-1 that reflected those changes, but a discussion is continuing over Groupon’s “gross profit and consolidated segment operating income.” Groupon defines that as what it retains after paying a merchant its share of the profits from a sale. However, the figure doesn’t include marketing expenses.
The SEC “has concerns about how these metrics are used and presented and is hashing out with Groupon how best to present them in its prospectus,” says the report.
Groupon filed for an IPO June 2. The review process usually takes two to three months, but given the SEC’s questions, the IPO isn’t likely to hit until mid-September at the earliest.
