We all want to know what or who inspired John Galliano‘s show at the Opera Comique. Birds are telling me that it was con artist extraordinaire Maria Lani from the Twenties who convinced (ahem, scammed) over fifty leading artists of the day (including Matisse) to paint her portrait and then would flee with the paintings in tow. In this tribute all models were styled differently, each with a theatrical performance walk of their own. Like cotton candy with a Japanese taste, the British designer put on a real experience. Coco Rocha in tight pigtails for your time, below. View Post
This dress is $4.95. No joke. Jennifer Uglialoro, H&M’s PR Director, said, “This season, we bumped up the fashion and lowered the prices even more. It’s the same business concept we’ve had for over 60 years, but this season we’re focused even more on a lower price. We’re very cost-conscious; for fall you’ll be seeing trench coats for $20.”
How is this possible you ask? “We have over 2,000 stores in 37 countries,” Uglialoro said. “This provides high volume and there is no middleman. We have our own team of over 100 in-house designers and we do all our own production.”
This kind of discount makes me feel guilty. But I’ll skip a chai for it.
