Fragrance deals have long been the bread and butter for many a brand along with accessories lines, and Issac Mizrahi is the latest designer to tap into it.
WWD confirmed that the designer is set to launch his debut fragrance, Fabulous, which is the first product to be released from his new beauty licencing deal with The Cloudbreak Group. 'I've worked on other fragrance ideas before but this is the first time I'm actually launching one. I feel like if you get married too young, it rarely works out. It's the same thing with this - you get really very few changes at [creating a scent. You have to get it right,' he told the title. 'There has to be care taken. That's what all these years of experience have brought to this. I really want it to mean something and be special. Good perfumes are more cultural than product.'
I never really liked sort of what [Galliano] did so much. I liked better what McQueen did. I liked better what Vivienne Westwood did. So now I don’t like it, and he’s a Jew hater? I was like, ‘buh-bye’…Galliano was more of a fetishist to me. He was more of a fetishist than a democrat. And I refer to him in the past tense, because I don’t think he’ll work again. I hope not. I hope he doesn’t work again.
We all know thatAnna Wintour and Diddy have a close relationship - remember those pictures of the pair dancing at the Met Ball after-party? This year Wintour, whom the rapper calls his fashion godmother, has been very supportive of his new music.
Earlier this year, he appeared in an editorial in Vogue alongside Natalia Vodianova titled 'Last Train to Paris' - the name of his latest album, set for release on December 14 - and tracks from the album continue to be streamed on the magazine's website.
And it doesn't stop there. This week, it was revealed that Wintour, along with Andre Leon Talley, Marc Jacobs and Isaac Mizrahi, will appear on the album lending their voices to spoken pieces that will run between songs. According to The Cut, at the begining of Track 2, Wintour says: "This is Anna Wintour from Vogue magazine. You are now listening to the 'Last Train to Paris'."
