actually she did pretty well for CHLOE... i just remembered
PEOPLE SHE WAS THE ONE THAT BROUGHT CHLOE TO BE KNOWN ONCE MORE I THINK SHE LL DO GREAT SHE SHD GET IT
I don't dislike her designs, I just think that she needs to find herself before taking on another huge project...Besides, like I mentioned earlier, she is anti leather, fur etc., so Stella and Gucci just wouldn't make sense...
I enjoyed her Chloe days more than her Stella days...but we can't forget who helped her in every single Chloe collection, Phoebe Philo!
there is already a topic on [email protected], so i'm merging in the old one
Its not really a question of how good her own collections are but if she will even be capable of handling such a powerhouse in Gucci. Her collections are not bad for Stella McCartney but the likes of Gucci in her hands,I don't think so. And Chloé is nothing compared to the power that Gucci has become...at all.
If they put Stella in Gucci, it will be a disaster. First because she is anti-leather and, as said earlier, leather products are Gucci's bread and butter. But she did sign into the Gucci-Group with pro-leather Tom Ford, right? So she could ignore that or replace them with other fabrics? Anyways that's one problem already. Secondly, if she can't produce a good collection for her name-label then what more Gucci, right?
Does this shed any new light , or is it a rehash of old news ?
REGARDS KIT B)
That was very informative. Thank you, kit!
Now we know... (from the article)
- Contracts of Britain’s Julien Macdonald (for Givenchy) and US designer Michael Kors (for Celine) expire (except for this).
- Marc Jacobs is signed on until 2008 at Louis Vuitton.
- Hedi Slimane will design for Dior Hommes until 2006
- Galliano just renewed his contract at Dior for women.
- Rose Marie Bravo, currently managing director of the British label Burberry, as De Sole’s possible replacement, but she has formally denied being contacted by Gucci.
from WWD of today, it seems Gucci might be designed by a group of designers, including Stefano Pilati, Tom's x-righ hand at Yves Saint Laurent and x-Prada girl Alessandra Facchinetti.
Alexander McQueen is still been discussed for YSL, he seems to be negotiating more Gucci Group support for his own line... he still regrets his stint at Givenchy, he feels that his own line suffered at that time and we know he's right.
if i was Alexander McQueen, i'd stay away from the YSL chair.. he doesnt need two collections each season, he's doing great by his own (now that he has time to concentrate on his work).
I agree! And the couture line is gone, anyways.
WWD is really scratching its head on this one. Sounds to me like either post could go to someone whose name hasn't even come up yet.
This is an article in todays WWD.
ugh. and the saga continues...
*Sits outside Gucci H.Q. - looking cool and amazingly good at making large profits*
No, we are the only ones who likes Stella's designs.
Stella, at 15 helped Christian Lacroix on his first couture collection and also spent a few years at Saville Row. She also helped Tom Ford with the last couple of Gucci and YSL collections. And she did rake in the big bucks for Chloe.
However, I agree that she should stick to developing her own label instead of taking over another one.
I wonder how it'll turn out
How awesome is WWD? From 13 January 2004:
By the way, can someone educate me on the correct pronounciation of "Gstaad?" Thanks!
thanks for the wwd piece atelier, Tom sure knows how to make people talk
ps: Gstaad is pronounced exactly as you write it, with two aa's emphasis on the second a
He certainly does. I'm following this closer than Melrose Place. (Did I just type that for the world to see?)
Got it. Thanks Lena!
Further to this discussion , I hope that this sheds a little more light !!
Any reactions to this ?
