Coronavirus: Brand Moves for Wednesday May 27

A just-released survey from Adobe Advertising Cloud has revealed that a significant proportion of the American population is still buying luxury goods and still, surprisingly enough, wants to see luxury advertising. What’s more, that group is Gen Z, the under-25 consumers who statistically lack the job security and affluence that many older buyers enjoy. Adobe conducted its survey earlier this month, interviewing over a thousand shoppers to learn their feelings about brand advertising during th...

Freddy, set, go!

The good-looking actor Freddy Daruwala tells SANDEEP HATTANGADI that it’s never about overdressing but all about casual flair How would you define fashion? What does it mean to you? Fashion means individualistic style that a person carries with a casual flair and without overdressing. It should be natural and not overdressing or playing to the gallery. True style comes from within you, and not from any particular trend in clothing or accessories. Article By Sandeep Hattangadi | The Free Press...

Rihanna’s Fenty fashion label opens for business in Paris

Rihanna revealed her first Fenty collection in Paris on Wednesday evening. She arrived wearing a blazer as a dress—the white canvas number had exaggerated shoulders and was cinched in at the middle with a built-in corset—paired with strappy going-out heels in gold leather, all from her new label. The mood was boss lady on top, party girl below. This mix of high and low took on menswear inspirations with a feminine twist. And it’s exactly what the 31-year-old pop star says she wants to bring t...

After visiting the Princess Grace exhibit at Christian Dior Museum, I exited the garden and took the long stairway down to the beach. The long stretch of beach was wild and rugged with boulders and craggy rocks leading to the Caribbean color palate of the sea. Looking up to the cliffs I saw patches of rock and grass, topped by large houses perched on the edges.   I discovered there was an old part of the city after walking through the archway of an ancient exposed stone building. It had t...

Princess Grace Exhibit at Christian Dior Museum, Granville

Last week I took a spontaneous trip from Paris to see the Princess Grace Exhibit in Granville, Normandy. It was a bit of a long day trip, 3 hours and fifteen minutes each way from Gare Montparnasse.   I arrived about noon and it was a blustery day, with the sun teasing in and out of the thick clouds overhead.   The Christian Dior Museum is the home where Christian Dior grew up in the early 1900s. In his memoir, “ Christian Dior et Moi”, he states, "I have most tender and amazed mem...

We Found The Internet's Best Vintage With The Help Of Thrifting Experts

You probably have this friend: every time you see her, she turns up in some cool-but-unplaceable new piece that is totally of-the-moment and yet... different. You can’t get a read on it, so you have to inquire about its origin. Her answer is always frustratingly simple: “It’s vintage!” Your next question is a practical one: how can you get your hands on something similarly one-of-a-kind if there’s presumably only one of it in the world?We have a lot of these friends — some of them are right her...
