I'm not sure — it's an amazing job, I don't know if he would be the right person for it. John Galliano is difficult to replace. I think it's important not to jump into things. It needs to be a logical continuation of the brand. But who am I to say anything? I guess we all just have to wait and see.
Last season he had us wanting to buy a puppy and now Marc Jacobs' latest campaign for Louis Vuitton has us desperately wanting to wear pastels and embrace all things S/S12 despite the horrible weather outside. “It is all very soft and very sweet, yet at the same time very bold and very graphic,” Jacobs told WWD of the campaign starring Daria Strokous and Kati Nescher and shot by Steven Meisel.
It has only been running for three years but it feels hard to remember at time when Fashion's Night Out didn't start fashion week. Started as response to flagging sales due the economy, the event now takes place in over 23 countries across the world and brands continue to pump up money in advertising their events and are constantly under pressure to out-do what they did the year before and draw customers in. Yesterday Vogue announced that the event will take place again next year, although the exact date has not been confirmed due to the who-ha with the show schedules.
I'm all far supporting brands through this hard time but looking back, I can't ever think of a time when I've actually seen somebody by anything. Far from that, most people seem more interested in going to as many events as possible to bag as much free things as they can and take advantage of the free champagne on offer. So it really begs the question whether Fashion's Night out is simply that - just another night out?
When you think about wedding gowns, Vera Wang is the first name that comes into your mind, right? Over the years her designs have become the most sought-after dresses for women's big days so it only makes sense that she's spreading the love to men too.
According to WWD the designer is working on a new line of tuxedos exclusively for The Men's Warehouse, the same producers of The Situation's men's formalwear line. Although neither party is yet to confirm the news, industry insiders report that the partnership is a done deal.
H&M have done some great collaborations in the past but none have excited me quite like their upcoming collaboration with Marni. The brand has always been one of my favourites and if the images of the collection are anything to go by, we can expect something really special from the partnership. But it gets better. Yesterday the retailer announced that they have managed to pin Sofia Coppola down to direct their advertising film campaign, which will run in cinemas, online and on TV.
H&M really are on a roll at the moment. Marni designer Consuelo Catiglioni is known for being very private and the brand has reamined one of the industry's best kept secret's so securing Marni was a big get and throw Academy-award winning Coppola in the mix and you truly have a dream team. “I enjoyed doing this film for the Marni at H&M collaboration," Coppola said. "I think it’s great how they make fashion accessible and I wanted to show the fantasy fashion can bring. Consuelo seems really sincere and cares about what she does and I appreciated that.” When asked about how it was working with the director Castilioni said: “I’m a big fan of her movies, in particular of her vision and aesthetic. It was fantastic that she worked on this project; her interpretation is remarkable and full of atmosphere,” she said.
