If you were at the top of the fashion pile what would you drive? Well, the newly unveiled Jaguar XK and XJ, of course. Last night, we learned that Jefferson Hack, Matthew Williamson, Rosamund Pike and Elle McPherson all have their orders in. And if you were a recently named beauty brand ambassador for Chanel, what would you wear? Duh, Chanel. Wrong. Try head to toe Topshop, which is what Poppy Delevigne wore last night at the unveiling of the of the car. Though she pretty much made up for that by bringing her dad as her date. Cute. Do tell...what do you think is the most fashionable ride out there? Also, if you can explain Elle McPherson doing Kate Moss months later, that would be great too. —CHARLEY B.
Jefferson Hack Interviews Gareth Pugh About Fashion Films Intead Of Runway Shows and His Hong Kong Store
PARIS--Days after Brit expat Gareth Pugh's Mercury and Ebony S/S 2011 collection was presented on an 8 x 15 meter Imax screen to a warehouse full of buyers and press, the avant-garde designer sits for an informal Q&A at the Louvre's Apple Store. The avant-gardeist snapped up France's ANDAM award in 2008 and was rumored as next in line at McQueen and Dior Homme. The last in a series presented by Dazed and Confused called "Meet the Designer" the magazine's co-founder Jefferson Hack talks with the young designer about the tentative future of catwalk shows, his sold-out shop in Hong Kong and why Saint Martins does not a star make. Jefferson Hack: Gareth's first store opened in Hong Kong in July. It was designed by Iwan from from Daytrip Studio who is super young, like 25. What was it like working with him? Garreth Pugh: I've known him since he was 18 and we're very good friends, I think that helps. My two stipulations were that I wanted it to look like a black box inside and that one wall could control video.
