Raf Simons to Dior?

This morning WWD reported that Raf Simons is close to signing with Dior as their next couturier. I think it would really shake things up at Dior, having someone as innovative as Raf at its helm.  I was reminded of this young lady (above) that I shot outside Chanel, and the interesting way she mixed Comme Des Garçons, Hermes, and Chanel into one look.  It really made me think about how cool it would be if Rei Kawakubo took over for Karl Lagerfeld when he leaves Chanel- talk about a fascinating combination.

 

It’s always fun to think about who you would want to see where; Raf at Dior, Rei at Chanel, Dries at Hermes…these are just a few of my dream combos. ¬†But, let’s focus: Who do you see at Armani when he steps down? What about Chanel, or Ferre? Who’s going to revive the houses of Ungaro or Cardin? Better yet, what about Margiela?!

On the Street….The Statement Necklace, Paris

I haven’t seen this look in New York or Milan, but Paris is full of young ladies sporting these massive necklaces.

The Sartorialist Unconventional Gift Guide….. #3 Don’t Buy Knit Gloves

I’m such a sucker for knit gloves, especially cashmere ones. ¬†I buy a few pairs each Fall as soon as they hit stores and wait patiently for the winter wind to come. ¬†Unfortunately, within days of the first wear, mine are splitting at the seams and making my nose itch like crazy. Maybe I should just consider them under-developed fingerless gloves and call it a day…

 

Tomorrow I will share with you the gloves I buy every September when I’m in Paris. ¬† They’re thin, sturdy, and age beautifully; a street photographer’s dream.

 

P.S. My assistant Emilie just found out they would cost $100 to mend!! They barely cost $100!  Anyone know a good mending specialist?

Fabrizio Rollo in Elle Decor

I was so happy to see perennial Sartorialist Fabrizio Rollo’s apartment in¬†S√£o Paulo¬†featured in the December issue of Elle Decor.

 

Everytime I see Fabrizio he’s telling me about his place. ¬†I knew it would be good, but I didn’t know it would be THIS good. ¬†The way he mixes colors and patterns reflects in his space as much as his clothing. ¬†It’s always so surprising and rewarding to see the depth of a friend’s creativity.
