Her plans for Pucci are apparently centred on “joy and well-being.”

While I was discussing with Richemont, I bought a lot of vintage pieces and each time I realized they were immune to aging. At Alaïa, creation has its own pace. Such a rare thing in the landscape of fashion. Time as luxury.”
A great reflection from Pieter Mulier on Azzedine Alaïa’s appreciation of time, Vogue. (more…)
