Apple Stores gearing up toward selling fashion/wearable goods

Apple has hired on another person from fashion giant Yves Saint Laurent, Catherine Monier, sources say. While with YSL, Monier was the company's European president and worldwide wholesale director. She's said to have left the company earlier this week, and should make the switch to Apple within the next few days.

Monier was reportedly recruited by Paul Deneve, formerly YSL's CEO -- and now responsible for a "Special Projects" group at Apple that reports to Tim Cook. Monier is claimed to be on Deneve's team, which sources say is working on new retail strategies geared towards selling fashion and wearable products at Apple Stores.

Apple has hired a number of people from the fashion industry as it prepares to launch the iWatch this fall. Although its products have sometimes been described as fashion accessories, the iWatch will be its first device designed with that purpose.
