Love this minimal Celine Fall 2016 collection and campaign. Simple, pure, lovely colors and very accessible(in style, i’m not talking price). And hello! Yellow velvet slacks… WANNA HAVE FOR WINTER DAYS! And we like that they used dutch model Nirvana Naves from Code Management.

Alber Elbaz • Parsons School of Design

Alber Elbaz at Parsons

I had the honour to attend the Alber Elbaz Talk yesterday at Parsons School of Design in New York. My first reaction by seeing him on stage was just to give him a hug. He is such a wonderfully warm and lovable person. His talk was so openhearted and vulnerable, it started with him unpacking a big bag filled with tissues and candy for the audience. The tissues “just in case” and the candy because sugar makes you happy.

Alber has a way of talking from his heart and I felt like I was in kindergarden being explained the very basics about shapes. Everything just fell into place, we just need more love in our industry. (And more people like Alber in general!)

He even quoted Christopher Walken in Catch Me If You Can:
“Two little mice fell in a bucket of cream. The first mouse quickly gave up and drowned. The second mouse, wouldn’t quit. He struggled so hard that eventually he churned that cream into butter and crawled out.”

Our industry is the second mouse right now, not sure what were doing but we’ll get there again. Something is happening in the Fashion Industry at the moment and instead of being sad about it he said: change is good. We are now talking about it, before everybody was silent. We are now posing question we didn’t ask before; Why is everybody in Fashion so unhappy?

At 00:12:00 he starts his talk.
Enjoy!
