John Galliano has always been obsessed with wardrobes even if these days, in his designs for Maison Margiela, he is all about tearing them apart. Especially if it’s the wardrobe of the very respectable bourgeoisie.
2019 was a good year for Hermès and the firm remains upbeat, despite a small slowdown in Q4 and the recent coronavirus outbreak. It saw strong performances in RTW, jewellery, Asia, the Americas and the UK.
Saint Laurent sent out an unusual collection for next winter at Paris Fashion Week, presenting a wardrobe where the classic aesthetic of the house's founder clashed with the fetish stylings of Anthony Vaccarello.
Claudia Marcocci, former SVP of Coty's Gucci Beauty, is taking over as brand general director of Parfums Christian Dior, succeeding Véronique Courtois, who stepped down from the role to lead Guerlain in November 2019.
Designers Galib Gassanoff and Luca Lin presented their fourth show to date for brand Act N°1 at Milan Fashion Week and once again confirmed their talent with a collection as creative as it was commercially viable.
