PACO RABANNE PASS AWAY AT 88

Black magic for white poetry of burning metal, and like a magnetic transgression, the man from Castille had enriched Parisian fashion with feminine sculptures in polyethylene and metal?

His sewing is chemical and fantastic, it was phenomenal, but also pheromonal at the sight of his dresses surges an ocean of oxytocin .

I remember; he was there kneeling in that human distress of the true creators, and you could feel the passionate fervor in his black eyes. He would pull his hands back behind his back to show that he was the slave and not the master of his sewing. He leaned his head against the bottom of the mannequin’s throat, and on his side he clipped a metal ring like a child adoring the Madonna as a devotee, receiving the host of notoriety.

HERMES AND ROTHSCHILD

In the Southern District of New York, Mason Rothschild wrapped up his testimony Thursday at the trademark infringement trial brought forth by Hermès.

California-based artist has been accused of trademark infringement, dilution, and cybersquatting. 100 “MetaBirkin” NFTs were created by Rothschild, two-dimensional images of faux-fur-covered handbags inspired by the luxury house’s prized Birkin bag.

Rothschild, according to Hermès executives and its legal team, confused consumers, diluted the brand and affected the company’s own NFT and metaverse plans. The project was conceived in late 2021 by Rothschild, who goes by the name Sonny Estival. It was motivated by the fur-free movement that was becoming popular in the fashion industry at the time, as well as his desire to create an illusion of value for digital handbags similar to Birkins. He and his team have argued repeatedly that his artistic expression is protected by the First Amendment and the two-dimensional blockchain-hosted images cannot be used as handbags in the metaverse.

CREATIVE DIRECTOR QUITS TIFFANY

LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton owned jeweler Tiffany and Co has lost its executive creative director, Ruba Abu-Nimah, to another company. In a forced march you always end up destroying someone. Is it possible for an overweight woman to have a role in LVMH?

After LVMH acquired Tiffany, Ruba Abu-Nimah joined Tiffany’s new creative leadership team in 2021. In her role, she was responsible for overseeing visual creative assets such as website design and imagery, social media content and advertising.

Abu-Nimah is a seasoned creative, who has also held executive and coaching positions at Revlon and Shiseido.

Abu-Nimah has frequently collaborated with downtown contacts such as Raul Lopez, Julia Fox and Anajah Hamilton on social media campaigns to increase relevance for the jeweler.

ROLLAND THE GOLD RUSH

The nominations for the 2023 Oscars were announced yesterday, and the red carpet outfit predictions followed soon after. Consider turning heads in Stephane Rolland’s phenomenal gold gown that debuted on the haute couture runway yesterday in Paris.

The latter looked like frozen liquid gold midway through the show, spilling over the model’s shoulders and creating a glittering blistered lamé tent to protect her from the public. On her face and part of her torso was a tear-shaped cup, reminding everyone that she was both ethereal and earthy. She wore gold bracelets around her arms, like threads. As if she were a living sculpture, she was the manifestation of a god.

UGLY AND SMUGLY

As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But sometimes the observer is just plain wrong. Some sneakers simply should never have made it to the shelves, never should have made it past the brainstorming stage, and certainly never should have left Tiffany’s office.

But there is one rule to follow when creating a branded shoe for an athlete: make sure they actually like it! Rumor has it that even Bernard Arnault couldn’t see the beauty in these shoes, considering them as ugly as the general public.

Nike’s Air More Typhany is one of the hottest sneakers on the market right now, but the same can’t be said for its hybrid sister, the Air Max, which is very poor quality anyway. This fusion of the Tiffany and the Air nike is mixing luxury with the Longaberger Building (Frazeysburg, États-Unis).

SABATO DE SARNO JOINT GUCCI

From a super star Jesus Christ to a Cistercian monk. A 39-year-old man named Sabato De Sarno has been announced as Gucci’s new creative director. He was previously the fashion director at Valentino. Prada SpA was where he began his career before working for Dolce & Gabbana Srl. In 2009 he joined Valentino .

In November, Alessandro Michele stepped down as Gucci’s creative director, vacated by Sabato di Sarno. Much like Michele when she stepped into the Italian house seven years ago, Di Sarno’s career has largely been behind the scenes up to this point, albeit at various fashion houses.

LVMH SLEEP PEACEFULLY

400 billion euros worth of ideas which follows President Xi Jinping’s decision to lift restrictions on COVID-19, LVMH Mot Hennessy Louis Vuitton says it is cautiously confident as 2023 approaches, but why?

After LVMH’s record results, Chairman and CEO Bernard Arnault said the signals from China were positive.

“I’m pretty confident that, because the Chinese leadership is very astute, they’re surely going to take advantage of the period that’s starting to revitalize Chinese growth. If that’s the case, and we saw signs of that in January, then we have every reason to be confident, even optimistic, about the Chinese market.”

According to the Forbes ranking, he and his family are the richest family in the world ahead of Tesla CEO Elon Musk, SpaceX CEO . During his speech, Bernard Arnault also mentioned that 5 billion euros of investments will be made in France, pointing out that “more than 500 stores and 100 craft production sites are located in the country.”

IRIS VAN HERPEN 2023

In one of the deepest pools, Iris Van Herpen’s otherworldly dresses, sometimes resembling sea creatures, found themselves submerged. With a filmed presentation, the Dutch designer invited French free diver Julie Gautier to interpret her spring haute couture collection with a powerful political message.

CHRONICLES OF NARNIA

A spectacular display of Schiaparelli’s Surrealist aesthetic kicked off Paris Fashion Week. At the center of the firestorm were three outfits incorporating eerily realistic replicas of animal heads: a snow leopard, a lion and a wolf.

Shalom Harlow wore a snow leopard bustier dress, based on an archival 1938 design, while Irina Shayk wore a lion gown and Naomi Campbell wore a wolf coat. Some online commenters praised the reproductions’ artistry, while others accused the house of glamorizing trophy hunting.

The creatures were inspired by Dante’s “Inferno,” which provided the broad inspiration for the spring collection. However, the point was really Dante himself and this story about trial, tribulation, doubt, and the need to experience all of that in order to reach paradise,” the designer explained.

It’s understandable that Roseberry feels blank page anxiety after his creations were exhibited as part of Schiaparelli’s retrospective at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. A strap dress shimmied with sequins made of tin covered in leather, while a bustier with a dramatically horned neckline quivered with ecru glass bugle beads.
