Quote of the day: Elise By Olsen

Quote of the day: Adrian Joffe on ‘see now, buy now’



Comme des Garcon's Adrian Joffe by Thomas Lohr
“I’m not at all excited. It’s an unimaginative marketing idea that will, if anything, kill off retail even quicker. It smacks a bit of totalitarianism. I feel it takes away the freedom of the buyer and herds the consumer even more into what is supposed to be hot and enforces the idea that instantaneousness is the new paradise. Individuality and choice are reduced. Where is the suspense, the patience, the surprise, the happy accidents? Where is the art, where is the risk, and where is the space for creation to flourish in the see-now-buy-now mind-set?”
Adrian Joffe nails it, Vogue

The business of being an influencer

“If everybody’s promoting themselves and everybody has two million hits or followers… it’s like if everybody’s famous then nobody’s famous. All of these selfies, where are they going to go? Where are they all going to end up?”
Bob Colacello in WWD’s article on the Business of Being an It Girl
