Chutzpah’s Barometer

May 3, 2015

LOVING Superdry x Idris Elba – Whilst Abercrombie flounders (see below), their British counterpart has been savvy enough to team up with the British acting icon for Autumn/Winter 2015. Donatella – Hubert may be spinning in his grave, but Givenchy’s new campaign starring Donatella Versace and creative director Riccardo Tisci is both inspired and captivating. […]

March 7, 2015

Oh how we’ve missed you John Galliano. Like a shot of A grade drug to the arm, the first RTW Maison Margiela was all sorts of wonderful. Galliano deftly manages to simultaneously defy and entrance.

It was one of the biggest talking points of last year. Who would be at the helm of the re-invigorated Schiaparelli, the House we all Love to Love?

July 8, 2013

Ever since it was announced that the House of Schiaparelli was to be re-instigated by Tods’ owner, Diego Della Velle, the fashion industry’s been in a tizz.

John Galliano dropped from teaching post at Parsons, New York

May 9, 2013

It’s a travesty. Not only for this previously celebrated genius who had the fashion world at his feet for so many years (and justifiably so) but for the students of Parsons New School of Design who have been robbed of the man’s presence, talent, creative genius and inspiration. More fool them. Blame the students and […]
