“I love seeing a Zara window with my clothes mixed with Céline and Proenza! I think that’s genius. It’s even better than what I do! I love the styling, I love the story… I watch the windows always, and it’s genius what they do today. They go fast, they have a great sense of styling and how to pick up what they have to pick up from designers. I’m really happy that Balmain is copied – when I did my Miami collection and we did the black and white checks, I knew they would be in Zara and H&M. But they did it in a clever way – they mixed a Céline shape with my Balmain print! Well done! I love that.”

It’s not just Phoebe Philo who gets a secret pleasure from high street homages. Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing is a fan too. Via The Independent

Quote of the day: backstage selfies

Matthieu-Blazy-Raf-Simons

“Increasingly over the past couple of seasons, the backstage areas of shows normally reserved for post-show interviews with the designers have been rammed with a certain type of show-goers eager to take selfies with the designers. While some designers are tolerant and patiently oblige, it’s a tendency which has resulted in camera bans and buffed up security backstage at other shows where designers are less keen to play celebrity and fashion.”
Anders Christian Madsen, i-D on fashion and social media

Bernhard Wilhelm Apartamento

“It’s one of the first decisions you have to make as a fashion designer. Do you want to be corporate or do you want to be free? It’s very hard to be free, you will have to work more, you will make less money or no money. You will have to suffer, but you have your freedom. Do you choose the obvious or the not so obvious? I guess I’m the not so obvious.”

“Don’t insist too much about the young. One day they will be less young. And then people are not interested anymore because they’re not a young designer. Say ‘designer.’ If they’re good, they are ‘designer.’ If they are not OK, they need the word ‘young designer.’ In a way, it’s an insult.”

Quote of the day: The Cut

You-Did-Not-Eat-That

“l’m thinking of the other two people there that probably want to eat, while you tweak the lighting, and arrange your fringe bag. Just eat! Let them eat.”

This story in The Cut on the staged reality of fashion Instagrammers made me laugh. Who hasn’t held up an event while they snap the canapes macarons for yet another Instagram peek into their so-called fabulous fashion life? It’s no secret that Instagram life is our aspirational life, but I have to wonder, if everyone is posting the exact same version of faux-reality, is it time we moved on?

“The whole idea of shifting the view towards older women is quite anarchic. If you’re looking for punk rock, look at Advanced Style.”

“For me, the future is going to be about in-person transactions and real conversations, skills and sharing in real spaces, rather than the cabaret of the nameless we’ve witnessed over the past decade.”

Quote of the day: Marimekko’s Mika Ihamuotila

marimekko

“I often as a CEO say, ‘Let’s not be too commercial and please that segment of the market. Go to your own sensitivities, go to your own art, and do something that you think is relevant at this moment.’”

I agree wholeheartedly with this sentiment from Marimekko CEO Mika Ihamuotila, who just hired & Other Stories head of design Anna Teurnell as its new creative director.
