Fashion's all-stars unite for a mega-campaign.
Balenciag's lawsuit against former creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere over comments he made in System magazine is revealing some juicy details...
While there were several theories floating around (frustrations with Balenciaga parent company Kering, disagreements over the commercialization and expansion of the brand, some even say Wang was being courted before Ghesquière left), it was never made clear why Nicolas Ghesquière split from Balenciaga back in November. Now, the designer is finally setting the record straight himself.
A thoughtful and dishy-sounding new independent print magazine is set to hit newsstands in May. Though, it's being met with some opposition from publishing giant Condé Nast.
In news that makes us really, really happy: Carine Roitfeld is slated to launch her own magazine. While Roitfeld stays mum on many of the details, the former Vogue Paris editrix said in an interview for Dazed & Confused that she hopes to start a "really iconic magazine that’s fresh and exciting." The magazine will "be something less frequent than a month" and will be printed in English. "There is no value in it being in French," she said, "It needs to be international." According to ELLE, Roitfeld isn't the only big-name fashion industry player involved: Marie-Amelie Sauve, Mario Testino and Stephen Gan--aka "the dream team"--will also play a role in the as-yet-unnamed publication. No doubt, with so many talented people involved, the magazine is sure to be a huge success.
Lately designers are releasing their upcoming season's ad campaigns early and making an event of it, instead of risking the chance that images will be leaked online. Balenciaga is the latest label to release its fall campaign early and online, rather than print.
