“Jordan and Vivienne Westwood once took me for dinner after shutting the shop and we were walking up the King’s Road when a bunch of punks on the other side of the road were shouting “Vivienne you sell out!” Vivienne gobbed at them in reply and turned to us with a smile saying, “I’m still a punk!”

“Your jeans would wear out in the crotch area – and we’re wearing very low rise, low waisted jeans – so you’d put the patches right where you want the girls to look. It was all stratgetically done. It was all done so that a girl would walk into a room and couldn’t help but look there. In retrospect, I now know that is what I was doing. At the time you’d say, “No, I’m just mending these jeans because they’re torn or they’re ripped.” But somehow they were always torn and ripped in the exact right place.”

Dapper Dan

“My intention was to take them and adorn my customers with them in a way that made someone wearing one of my garments feel cool, giving them that sense of “I’ve arrived!” I wanted to really make my customers stand out so that they felt like a celebrity in one of my pieces.”

“I talked to my friend’s 17-year-old daughter about the slang that teenagers use, and this lovely young lady explained that all her friends call one another ‘bitches, sluts and whores’.”
Sofia Coppola, Red Magazine, on researching teen language for The Bling Ring

A successful film director who’s intelligent, glamorous and female? Let’s face it, it doesn’t happen often. So the glossies must have been gagging to get Sofia Coppola for their covers. The July issue of Red features a cover plus six pages of Coppola (sporting Miu Miu, Valentino and Chanel), in which she shares her own astute observations of celebrity culture and modern-day youth culture.

On researching LA teenagers for The Bling Ring, she said, “I talked to my friend’s 17-year-old daughter about the slang that teenagers use, and this lovely young lady explained that all her friends call one another ‘bitches, sluts and whores’. I also went to clubs in LA with all the girls dressed up in miniskirts and sky-high shoes. That was pretty exotic. Everyone was texting, taking pictures, and I tried to put as much of that in the film as possible. It was almost sci-fi, this idea that living does not count unless you are documenting it. All those things interest me and say so much about our culture, and what is emphasised as important.”

The July issue of Red is out on 5th June.

“The blatant pillaging of vintage archive looks and designers’ ideas is shameful and lazy. We end up going around in a creative circle rather than making progress.”

Quote of the day: Charlie Porter on ‘newness’

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

“For menswear, the shows coincide with delivery. When the men’s editors arrive in Milan, on Friday afternoon most people go, straight away, to Prada and it’s the Prada fight. Who can buy it first? Then we go and see the new show. You have to do it before the new show, while the old show is still ‘the new show’.”
Charie Porter discusses ‘newness’ at the menswear shows in BON International

“It always makes me so crazy when people on shows have a new winter coat every day. I wore the same winter coat for three years after college, even after my dog peed on it.”

Quote of the day: Lynn Yaeger on Fashion Week

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


“I always say that I would rather spend a week at Rikers Island or the hospital than do Fashion Week. Don’t you think it’s like school? It’s sort of divided up into periods and it has mean girls and you go from one class to another. It’s the worst.”
Lynn Yaeger, New York Observer, 2009
