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!”

Quote of the day: Garance Dore on influencer culture



Garance Dore

“For a few seasons, I had been seated with all the new influencers on the front row, which was, to be honest, a quite dreadful experience. As individuals, everyone on the front row was so nice. But the fight for power was exhausting, empty and ridiculous. I had also run out of stories to tell. But I wanted to be a good girl, so I pushed, pushed and pushed. And then, the day before the Chloé show, in my bedroom surrounded by designer clothes, I broke down. I started crying, and I couldn’t stop. I had tried to talk to friends about these feelings that I’d been having for years. All I would hear back in response was, “You have a dream life, don’t let it go.”

Anna Wintour Conde Nast

“At a toast for [GQ editor, Will] Welch at Frenchette this spring, Wintour mentioned the time he and Adam Rapoport, the editor of Bon Appétit, played basketball with LeBron James, until Welch “removed himself from the court because of a seriously damaged fingernail,” Wintour said, joking that Welch “was ahead of the curve in knowing that grooming was going to come first in the men’s world.””
