Last season was the long-awaited start, the big bang of colors, patterns, and new shapes, but spring is a blank slate.
Burberry is under pressure and Lee, known for his golden touch with accessories, has spent the last few months refining his approach and putting his vision forward. A collection of silver and gold accessories, motorcyclist swagger and touches of medieval heraldry with a strong commercial connotation graced the catwalk on Monday.

Known to have collaborated with Nazi Germany, documents unveiled by the exhibition “Gabrielle Chanel. Fashion manifesto” exhibition in London suggests that she may have been on both sides.

That’s the theory now put forward by the new exhibition focusing on the French couturier at London’s Victoria and Albert museum. According to documents, Coco Chanel, known for collaborating with Nazi Germany during the Second World War, was also “an occasional agent” in the Resistance.

Gabrielle Chanel, who lived at the Hotel Ritz, partly requisitioned by the Nazi regime to house the Luftwaffe and its chief, Marshal Göring. The fashion designer then had a relationship with a German embassy attaché, Hans Günther von Dincklage, who was undoubtedly a spy.

The Wertheimer brothers rewrote history to support the idea that Chanel might be British, and to make the world forget the French company’s move to the United Kingdom. Gabrielle Chanel “occasional agent” in the Resistance according to British documents! A big joke.


Birkenstock, and LVMH and Groupe Arnault is studying its strategic options for the famous sandal brand, including a potential IPO. According to the registration statement, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the company is preparing to introduce itself to Wall Street.

The early buzz is that Birkenstock’s valuation could top $8 billion. Birkenstock is more than a shoe, Oliver Reichert said in a letter included with the registration statement. lt’s a way of thinking, a way of living.”As a brand that has endured for centuries since 1774, Birkenstock is widely revered, resonating with the zeitgeist and even defining it.

On sales of 644.2 million euros, adjusted EBITDA totaled 224.4 million euros. For the first filing on the road to an IPO, many key details were left blank, including the number of shares and price of the offering. The Birkenstock footbed, which hasn’t changed for more than 120 years, is especially well known.


The creative force behind Christian Dior’s most iconic collections for three decades passed away on Sept. 6 in Châtillon-sur-Seine, France, at age 97.

The Saint-Nicolas church will hold religious services on Sept. 13. Christian Dior’s founder, Bohan, was Dior’s longest-serving designer. Continue reading


Vuarnet, the emblematic brand of Roger Pouilloux and Jean Vuarnet, is acquired by LVMH. Vuarnet’s purchase terms and amount are unknown at the moment. But bet 5 years of turnover.

The goal of Thélios, which already produces and distributes optical frames and sunglasses for prestigious brands, including Dior, Fendi, Céline, Loewe, Stella McCartney, Kenzo, Berlutti, Fred and Rimowa, Bulgari or Givenchy, is to restore the mythical splendor of the brand.

When Vuarnet was the heyday of cinema stars, we saw it, for example, on Alain Delon’s nose in “The Swimming Pool” (model 06) or even Jeff Bridges’ nose in “The Big Lebowski”.

It is true that Vuarnet still has a strong image with the public, but it is based on skiing and the mountains. According to Alessandro Zanardo, CEO of Thélios, the company still manufactures mineral glasses in Meaux, in the Paris region, of exceptional quality.



A platform aimed at scaling the fragrance brands in Richemont’s portfolio, Laboratoire de Haute Parfumerie et Beauté, will raise the bar on the company’s beauty business.

Boet Brinkgreve has been appointed CEO of the division and reports to Johann Rupert, the company’s chairman.

Richemont said Brinkgreve will help the six houses already involved in fragrance “reach critical mass in this highly competitive field.”

Among Richemont’s fragrance brands are Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Chloé, Dunhill, Alaïa and Montblanc. Cartier is developed by an in-house perfumer, while licensing partners include Interparfums and Coty.Is interparfums in danger?


After months of speculation, LVMH Mot Hennessy Louis Vuitton has been named premium partner of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

A bid of 150 million euros is on the table, for the next privatized bridges in Paris. The beauty of Paris invites us to seek beauty and to constantly surpass ourselves,” said Bernard Arnault, Chairman and CEO of LVMH. Above all, more notoriety for his group and a global advertising campaign at little cost.

Léon Marchand, who broke Michael Phelps’ last individual world record this weekend, will be among the LVMH athletes sponsored by the brand. We’ll also have to give to “the Magot Queen” a dress other than the Zara brand like in the photos.


Dame Jane Birkin, singer, actress and muse of the famous Hermès handbag, died on Sunday in Paris. She was 76 years old.

She had cancelled her concerts for the end of the year after suffering a stroke in September 2021.

Ms. Birkin made her name in the late 1960s after starring in Jack Smight’s “Kaleidoscope”, alongside Warren Beatty, and in Michelangelo Antonioni’s provocative film “Blow-Up”.

A scandalous duet she sang with Serge Gainsbourg, “Je T’aime…Moi Non Plus”, further propelled her fame after being banned by the BBC and condemned by the Vatican. The French will do more press for her than for their great writer, very strange! Milan Kundera’s “L’Insoutenable Légèreté” (The Unbearable Lightness) is less popular than “La légèreté de l’être” (The Lightness of Being) itself.


So here’s a real ampoule couture metaphorizer arriving like a cynical “Shein” to activate his obscene, blasphemous needle spear as an outward sign of weakness. A runt who relieves himself at the foot of K2, to drown an angel in the lewd sludge of supermarket bimbos.

Cardi B made her dramatic entrance in a velvet gown that she declared “beautiful, amazing.” Normal is the only fashion word she knows.

A fire broke out Thursday morning in Tiffany & Co.’s recently renovated flagship store in Midtown, but the “money never sleeps” boutique was already preparing to reopen a few hours later.

At 9:38 a.m., the New York City Fire Department received a call and crews responded to 727 Fifth Avenue at East 56th Street. According to a NYFD spokesperson, no injuries were reported. Two employees who were on the scene before the store opened at 10 a.m. were sent for medical consultation as a precautionary measure. Every day, 200 employees work in this busy location.

Following a fire department inspection, the retailer has postponed the store’s reopening until Friday. Jewelry, watches, porcelain, gifts, accessories and other luxury items were not damaged by the fire – even the fire didn’t want them! Jeweller wins environmental award and commits to decarbonization, a bad start for CO2.


We could have said woolly hair, but in the case of de Saint “Serv-nain”, it was more like short hair. Eureka! “j’ai trouvé”, which I translate for bimbos as “silly” as a thong string. Well, move along, there’s nothing to see in the courtyard of the Musée des Archives Nationales in Paris, and yet there’s so much to read. When I write, I weigh my words, but when I see this, words weigh me down. Here, then, is the flat dressmaker par excellence, who judges beauty in the same way that a tic-tac-toe stumbled upon Olympus would judge the beauty of a goddess’s ass.
