Unsere Lieblingsjournalistin, Suzy Menkes, hat ein paar Gedanken zum illustren Wechsel der Designer in der Modebranche formuliert.
Auf der Homepage der New York Times schreibt sie aus Mailand:
„The current state of fashion, with designers enticed to houses where they may be rejected, removed and re-embraced, leaves a queasy feeling.“
„By their nature artistic and fragile people, they see themselves treated like commodities, bought and dispensed with as the corporate house pleases.
There is a reason that long-serving fashion executives have been replaced in recent years by chief executive officers whose history is in ice cream, yogurt or other marketable products. With a global society hungry for luxury, distribution and supply chains are now as important for executives as a hands-on feel for products.“
Den ganzen – lesenswerten, weil irgendwie desillusionierenden – Artikel gibt es hier.
