It’s been an eventful week for power moves in fashion. The Financial Times fashion editor Vanessa Friedman has replaced critics Suzy Menkes and Cathy Horyn at The New York Times (hooray, fashion criticism isn’t dead!). Make-up artist Peter Philips, most known for his exquisite work at Chanel, has been tapped creative and image director of Christian Dior make-up. And everyone's favourite fashion giant André Leon Talley has stepped down as international editor-at-large of Numéro Russia.
Karl Lagerfeld has opened his first British store on London’s Regent Street. If black and white minimalist apparel isn’t your thing, you can treat yourself to a variety of Karl dolls or snap a selfie in the changing room with a provided iPad.
Prada has bought the Milanese pastry shop Pasticceria Marchesi. This is the first of the brand’s “future development projects”, which will take place in Milan and internationally. Should they release macarons and cupcakes with the Prada logo, Instagram will explode.
