LVMH head honcho Bernard Arnault has recently named his son, Antoine Arnault, CEO of luxury menswear brand Berluti. The 35-year-old, whom you might also know as Natalia Vodianova's boyfriend, recently spoke to the Guardian about his new role, growing up in the family business, moments of rebellion, and dealing with difficult designers--like former Dior designer John Galliano, for example.
Last night, we stopped by the Huffington Post Game Changers Awards at Skylight Soho. Aside from odd occurrences like Occupy Wall Street protesters chanting outside and a fire alarm going off, there was an interesting mix of people there.
We chatted briefly with Bai Ling, who was surprisingly pleasant to talk to even though her presence there was kind of baffling. The former Celebrity Rehab star told us she had a new song out on iTunes called "Rehab" and that her style has gotten more conservative since she got sober.
Later on, we caught up with Warby Parker's Neil Blumenthal David Gilboa and Andrew Hunt. When asked what they thought of all the companies copying them (Eyefly, Shauns Shades), Neil offered, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...I don't know why someone would want to dedicate time to copying someone else, though."
