Quote of the day: Zoe Bedeaux on Judy Blame



Judy Blame by Paul Hartnett

“Judy used to play around with all of those luxury brands, cutting up their logos and rebranding them – brands like Moët, Chanel and Vuitton. i-D used to print letters that were sent in and Moët sent one in saying that they were looking for Judy – they wanted to prosecute ‘her’! I find it amusing that Judy recently went on to work for Louis Vuitton, as a consultant for Kim Jones showcasing the work of fellow Seditionary Christopher Nemeth, who was wanted by Royal Mail for his destruction of the Queen’s property. He would cut up Royal Mail sacks and use them in the construction of his early jackets. It’s all so wonderful, you couldn’t make it up!”

According to Business of Fashion (paywall), LVMH (which owns Louis Vuitton, Dior, Chaumet and Bulgari) has upped its stake from 42 percent in 2015, to 69 percent in 2018. I’ve not heard much on the Repossi front lately, but BOF reports that it has been expanding its retail network, with shop-in-shops in Dubai, London and Doha, with New York and Tokyo to come.
