Collins set the original precedent, becoming the first openly-gay athlete in the four major U.S. sports when he came out to Sports Illustrated in April 2013. He broke another barrier when he played for the Brooklyn Nets late last season. Numerous other athletes have come out since then, including Massachusetts sophomore Derrick Gordon, the first active openly-gay player in Division I basketball. With so many precedent-setters before him, Sarafin figured his announcement would be treated with little more than a shrug. It wasn't quite the same fervor as Sam's announcement, but it still was big news, drawing more than a dozen reporters and cameramen to the Sun Devils' fall camp retreat at Camp Tontozona.

In its second-quarter release, the company said that it expects its fiscal 2015 gross margin to fall approximately 50 basis points compared to its 2014 margin. The company was adamant that it was not going to engage in heavily promotional activity, but it may be the case that the market simply drags it into a promotional world, whether it wants to go or not. Tension between the two brands is going to continue to fuel these sorts of margin declines and promotional moves as long as Americans are forced into tight spots. Can Kate Spade turn it around?
