    Even if they're totally not "me", I do have to say, those Tod's shoes are really cute. Although, I admit, I'm totally biased towards the designer. Had any other designer's name been attached to it, like Donatella or Alessandro or JW (What does JW even stand for anyways? Dont' answer that), I probably wouldn't think such warm happy thoughts towards them.

    Alber in the video is hilarious! Perhaps it's my general feeling of meh! toward Tod's that's influencing my feelings about this capsule.

    If you told me those shoes and video were J.Crew, I would believe you.

    It's a no for me.

    Curious to see the results...although “AZ Fashion” is a horrible name.

    We want you to save Dior or Chanel and you do this to us?

    I wonder if it is actually a label or if it is some type of "service" to fashion, like consultancy or something. I'm very curious either way.

    AZ Mode would have been a bit more chic...

    AZMode, AZAtelier, A-Z, just AZ anything but not AZfashion. That sounds like an ailing fast fashion brand. Anyway, I'm excited to see this unfolds and wish him the best. However, I still think he's the best person to rejuvenate Dior.

    Could it be that AZFashion is just the name given to the partnership legal agreement, rather than the actual label?

    The name reminds me of those « edgy », underground French magazines from the 80’s...
    Terrible!
    That being said, I find it weird that Richemont takes chances with Alber. He has a signature and is really talented but I don’t really see him having his own line as crazy as it sounds...

    From Laroche to YSL, from Krizia to Lanvin, his work has always been consistent but I don’t know if it’s enough to have his own line today. He can be like Dries but I think I was excited about him going at Dior because that combination can produce fireworks....

    And it’s so weird to release statements that are beyond vague. Like you are announcing a partnership and yet, nobody gets what it’s all about.

    I don’t know why but his project gives me Stefano Pilati’s RANDOM IDENTITIES vibes...
    And even if it’s not really discussed here, it’s a honest and clever way to think fashion. The products are good, well made and well priced...Even if it’s a bit underwhelming given the talent and the possibilities of Stefano.

    It’s a bit sad that the way to disrupt Fashion has more to do with everything except the clothes.

    AZFashion sounds like a youtube channel that does slideshow countdowns of "The Top 5 Designers in History"

    This sentence condenses fashion industry in this era of marketing designers.

    Can you imagine the type of people he may hire on that « start-up » mentality!
    A ton of people like the guy at Lanvin who believes that their best assets are their youth?
    I’m around that mid 30’s age range but I find it so stupid! I can see old Alber trying to speak to a generation of customers that doesn’t necessarily cares about him and seeking validation from a team of designers who thinks that all that matters is a great IG strategy....

    He really should have went to Dior.
