Hey, last minute Mother's Day gift seekers! Peter Nygård's Times Square store signage suggests giving your mom the gift of style. We wholeheartedly agree but wonder where he suggests finding it. Nygård seems to fancy himself some sort of International Man of Fashion Mystery—a design mogul and creative genius who demands custom-tinted blue light bulbs. For all that diva hype you'd expect style but what's there is just stuff: Dusters and slacks in yucky fabrics and the odd bit of tacky jewelry and embarrassing graphic lady tees. So, yeah, find mom some style; just maybe find it elsewhere.
