Olivier Theyskens on PFW return: "I really feel that I'm doing the right thing."
Ahead of his return to the Paris Fashion Week calendar, Olivier Theyskens sat down with Vogue to discuss working under an eponymous label, his time in New York and how fashion has changed since he first hit the scene in the '90s. "For me, it feels less magical than what it was," he said. "You would see a designer starting something that they likely hoped to do for a long time. It was natural to think that way then, because then you didn’t have people staying for just three years." {Vogue}

With Anthony Vaccarello picking up where Hedi Slimane left off, Bouchra Jarrar taking the helm at Lanvin and Maria Grazia Chiuri going to Dior (and leaving Pierpaolo Piccioli as sole creative director of Valentino), this season is sure to be one for the books.

Meet Christine Chiu, Beverly Hills housewife and couture customer
Christine Chiu, wife of a prominent Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon, is no stranger to the fashion week scene, and has a lot of strong feeling when it comes to the politics of buying couture. "I buy something at every show," she told The Hollywood Reporter in a new interview. "A few years ago, there was a Chanel dress that I was putting a deposit on and I saw Jessica Chastain wearing it at an Oscar event and thought, 'I don't want the sloppy seconds.' Not that anyone would call couture sloppy." {The Hollywood Reporter}
