Quote Me: Don't Expect Prada To Team With A High Street Brand Anytime Soon

It’s what everyone wants and I resist it because I want to be relevant in my own way.…I try to simplify my ideas and make them more simple but beyond a certain point, the simplification is not a positive thing.…So extracting the essence of a brand so that a brand is just a bow, the brand is just a heart, the brand is just black…everyone would want that. Even the customers would want that. The majority of people want to just sell and probably [Kawakubo] would have found this aspect negative. Because in the end she didn’t want to banalize what she does and almost become a caricature of herself.

Manolo Blahnik aims to take over the accessories industry. He's already one of the leading footwear designers and now he's venturing into jewelry. He has designed to team up with TOUS to create a jewelry range featuring his Mary Jane Campari shoe as a charm.

Talking about his decision to collaborate with the brand he explained: "I love TOUS because I feel we have many things in common. We are family-runned businesses, we share Spanish roots and we are both keen on surprising and innovating."

The price hasn't been revealed bu the collection will be available in TOUS stores and Manolo Blahnik boutiques from March.

Quote Me: Miuccia Prada On Fast Fashion

I have never even considered it and I’ve explained why. It’s because I don’t like the idea of a bad copy of what one does for the main brand. If I had an ingenious idea to do fashion that costs less but that wasn’t a bad copy of something else, with completely different criteria and ways of doing things, I would do it. Also for myself, it would be an ingenious idea. For now, what I see more or less is the bad copy. Also with clothes that cost little, you need to ask why they cost so little. Because no one ever asks themselves that.

Vogue Paris Under Emmanuelle Alt "Will Be The Same But Different"

Since Emmanuelle Alt was appointed editor of Vogue Paris, we've all been wondering what we can expect from the magazine's former fashion director.

After the announcement, it was reported that that the magazine will stay the same but with a different eye, a sentiment that Alt confirmed in an interview with Hilary Alexander after the Chanel couture show this week. "French Vogue today is a successful magazine and it has a strong identity, so it will probably stay along the same lines' she explained. 'But, I mean, some things will change of course, because we have a different eye - It will be the same, but different!"
