1/ Anna Wintour had the web buzzing earlier last week, when a photograph of her sitting on the second row at Valentino during Paris Fashion Week, surfaced online. Some even speculated of eventual sacking among the Italian house's PR office following the "incident". It turned out Wintour had given up her front row seat by her own free will, lacking space there and enabling that way her collaborator to review the show more comfortably.
2/ Uniqlo spring 2014 collection's spokesperson and collaborator, super producer and artist Pharrell Williams and his i am OTHER collective have designed a line of caps and t-shirts for the Japanese label, that will be available in 14 Uniqlo selected stores around the world from mid-April. Limited edition t-shirts also designed by Pharrell went on sale exclusively online last Thursday as well.
3/ After two years at the helm of Dior as its creative director, Raf Simons is set to be the star of the Frédéric Tcheng-directed documentary «Dior et Moi», witnessing Simons' first couture collection for the house in July 2012. The flick will debut at the Tribeca Film Festival in April.
4/ Iconic British fashion critic and journalist Suzy Menkes joins the Condé Nast group as she's been named International Vogue Editor. Based in London, she will report for all nineteen Vogue international websites and organize an annual conference dedicated to the luxury goods industry. The change comes for Menkes after 25 years spent at the The International Herald Tribune - which became The International New York Times in last October.
5/ Superstar duo of photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin presented the follow up of their fine jewelry collection, Pretty Much Everything. Their sophomore outing continues to play with the concept of ring-interlocking but with new proportions and a rainbow of colors inspired by their own NYC apartment. Inez & Vinoodh plan to expand even further this fall with an apparel launch. Unstoppable.
