I enjoy him speaking so much!
He's funny in the video, Miss him so much. When will he come back ?
It sounded like he was starting to recover ...
I don't know how to embed podcasts onto (the new) TFS, but here's an excerpt from Business of Fashion:
The BoF Podcast | Alber Elbaz: ‘We Remain an Industry That Creates Dreams’
^ An excerpt from the above talk at Parsons, or something new?
At Numéro's 200th issue bash with Babeth Didjan and Jean-Baptiste Mondino:
Check the new hair color! Au naturel?
I dunno, he looks like a bottle blonde to me, lol.
It's odd. My sentiments about Alber have shifted from 'ugh, where will he be installed' to 'this is it, he's living his life and actually look great while doing so.' It's his sense of agency that's so impressive.
Yeah, it's a little too champagne to be completely natural, I guess, but I'm thinking he's probably gone white or grey, and had been coloring it brown?
I think in the beginning he literally wasn't capable of going anywhere else. With the settlement, he doesn't need to work again. I would be interested to know if he's making clothes for any of his favorite people. I haven't seen anything attributed to him on the red carpet, but it could be more subtle than that. He may well still be recovering.
Alber Elbaz Teams Up with Tod's
I have zero clue what this could look like, but I'm happy to see him back, even if it is only minimally. And if it's anything like the Moncler Genius line, which is fantastic IMO, then more power to him. Feeling..hopeful.
I'm eager to see this too ...
Lanvin just needs to repent and hire him back. He's too good for f-ing Tod's.
forget it. he wasn't very sensible at Lanvin. So they're not gonna hire him again never ever, that's a fact.
^ Please. You cannot be looking at him and Madame Wang and saying he's the one who wasn't sensible.
But the Lanvin ship has sailed. I dunno, maybe some future miracle is possible, but at this point I think the most graceful move is to shutter it and put up something nice in marble with the dates.
I was so sure he was going to take over for Karl at Chanel. When Hedi got the job at Celine and then Karl died I was certain it was going to be Alber. Oh well.
It's nice to see Alber put his design muscles to use for Tod's. They need the help. It'll be curious to see how his work has changed/updated, if at all. He was pretty consistent with is signature and style all the way from YSL through Lanvin.
It's curious because fashion has changed so much in the time he's been gone. I'm not quite at the point where I'm dying to see what he would do if he were back in full gear. Waiting to see how Patou and Chanel play out this upcoming fashion month to get a fresh read on the pulse of things. As others mentioned, money is not an issue so I think he'd only come back to a steady gig if the passion was there. Perhaps he's merely waiting for the right job to come along. It seems he can afford to so why shouldn't he?
I largely agree with Helmutnotdead that Alber's behavior at Lanvin made him persona non grata. It probably didn't endear him to many other potential employers either...
It’s funny we all had those speculations about Chanel when in fact Karl already knew and groomed his successor. It’s so unusual in our times.
Alber is friendly with Delphine Arnault and the Arnault in general . I think that he could totally work for another big brand. As you said, he has always been consistent in his work...From Guy Laroche to YSL, Krizia and Lanvin.
But I don’t think that revamp a struggling house is something he should do.
The next stage for him is really to be integrated in a very well organized and oiled machine....Dior, obviously.
