- Un sac de la créatrice Sarah Beydoun "Sarah’s Bag" inspirée par la BD de Michel Vaillant. Cette merveilleuse collection est socialement exemplaire, la fabrication est assurée par des femmes libanaises en détresse. A bag from my friend Sarah Beydoun’s collection "Sarah’s Bag" exclusively made by women in dire distress in Lebanon. When luxury meets a social conscience it makes magic.
If my head on the chopping block I had to confess who are the designers I really dig, those that truly make me covet their designs seasons after seasons, the list would be as short as the one given by the wonderful Diane Pernet in a recent BoF article.http://businessoffashion.blog.lemonde.fr/2014/03/05/diane-pernet-la-dame-en-noir-et-en-nuances/ Yves Saint Laurent of course, (Ain’t Laurent without Yves) as I decided to work in fashion around 12 after drooling over his designs, the Alaïa of the late 80′s-early 90′s for whom I was so lucky to work, Claude Montana where I spent a few years between Paris and New York, notably his couture period at Lanvin, the brits like McQueen, Boudicca, Christopher Kane or Mary Katrantzou, Dries and of course Chanel for Karl’s corrosive sense of humor that he dispenses so well under the pearls and the constant re-interpretation of the houses famous codes. BUT, If I am honest, the only true fashion "moments" I have had lately where all about ACCESSORIES.
