Sir John Galliano?

By Jonathan Smith on January 6th, 2009

WWD reports that John Galliano, captain of the good ship Christian Dior is set to be made a chevalier of the French Legion of Honor- which I’m assuming is the same as being knighted- knighted for services to fashion no less. How very French of them.

Christophe Decarnin Jumps On The Menswear Bandwagon!

By Will Reid on November 27th, 2008

00390m.jpgWWD has confirmed the widespread rumour that Christophe Decarnin is to design a menswear range as part of the Balmain label. Apparently, it will be launched at Men’s Fashion Week in Paris next January.

Decarnin has transformed the Balmain label into a fashion so on the edge it’s almost falling off and his collections have become a staple at each season’s Paris shows. The Balmain show of this season featured a Madonna soundtrack and rah-rah skirt haute couture that, in these times of economic crisis, looked set to be a bit of a failure. However, as is the fashion way, magazines have been calling in the collection left, right and centre and Fashionista has stated that it will no doubt be the same with Balmain Menswear.

Either way, I just want Christophe to know that he can send any samples in the direction of Shiny Towers for a full review (and road-test!)

License to wear Louis Vuitton

According to WWD Sean Connery, ex Bond and cantankerous old man could be the next face of Louis Vuitton.

Louis Vuitton, which has featured Mikhail Gorbachev, Keith Richards and Francis Ford Coppola in its “core values” advertising campaign, has landed another surprising agent for its message. Rumor has it Sean Connery, the original James Bond, has posed for Annie Leibovitz’s camera, just in time for the “Quantum of Solace” frenzy.

I would LOVE it if this were true, more old men in adverts I say! And pipes, definitely more pipes!
