Garance Interviewed On New Jay-Z Site

GaranceDoreByScottSchuman Garance Interviewed On New Jay Z Site

All of the internets are buzzing that Mr. Sean Carter has launched a site titled Lifeandtimes. It includes style features and while clearly more for a male audience, among the neckties and men’s shoes was an interview with street photographer Garance Dore (that’s her above in a photo accompanying the interview, shot by her fella, Scott Schuman). Here are a few of her responses:

L+T: What’s the most fashionable place you’ve ever been?
GD: Anna Della Russo’s closet.

L+T: Who are three artists in your iPod that you’ll never take out?
GD: Leonard Cohen, Serge Gainsbourg, Destiny’s Child

L+T: What fashion trends should we be looking forward to in 2011?
GD: I love hats and I would like to see more women and men adopting them into their wardrobe.

Note the nod to Beyonce! Definitely it will be interesting to see if the famously private Jay-Z will use his insider access to create compelling content. So far he’s playing his hand chest close and like a lot of things Carter-related, you feel a wall. Though given this is just day one, it’s will take a few weeks to tell.

ProenzaSchouler Proenza Schouler Interviewed By Chloe Sevigny

If Tom Ford has the fashion internets the most annoyed than Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, the design duo behind Proenza Schouler, has them the most charmed. Between winning (no, it’s not the playoffs, but yeah it sort of is) New York Fashion Week with their computerized Navaho collection and then gushing about how important the internets are–no less to a room full of bloggers, who for that moment didn’t have to suffer from their usual inferiority complex, they’re totally in that everyone-loves phase right now.

And Chloe Sevigny’s chat with them in Interview magazine doesn’t make them any less lovable.  Here’s an excerpt detailing how Hernandez lost their dog in his building when it accidentally got into the elevator by itself and wandered into an event taking place on another floor.

Hernandez: Well, I get to the lobby and there are hundreds of people. There’s a line down to Broome Street. I asked some guy, “Have you seen a dog?” He’s like, “Oh, yeah. Someone left a dog in the elevator. I don’t know where he went. He’s somewhere in the building.” I have no idea it’s Harmony [Korine]’s or Rita [Ackermann]’s opening. So I go to the Swiss Institute and it’s packed with hundreds of people. My dog weighs five pounds! I’m freaking out.
Sevigny: Someone stepped on him.
Hernandez: More like, someone stole him. One of these fucking hipsters stole my dog.
Sevigny: Does he have a collar on?
Hernandez: Nothing. No!
Sevigny: Well, that’s an irresponsible owner.
Hernandez: I’m at this party. I start bumping into Harmony and Terry [Richardson] and all these people. I’m thrown into this party environment and I’m just looking for my dog. I’m really scared. All of a sudden you call me. I thought you were at the party and you had seen me or something. I thought, Oh, Chloë must be here. I picked up, and you said, “Did you lose your dog?”

And the adorable cuteness doesn’t end there. There’s more about their design process, competition and how Helmut Lang is the inspiration for their generation. As a bonus we all learn how to pronounce Sevigny. Of course hopefully they enjoy it while it lasts because this is fashion, after all, and every dog has his day.

They discuss the design of the store, Louboutin’s inspirations and how he designs men’s shoes.

Business Of Fashion’s Imran Amed Talks To Nick Knight

06 December 2010, 15.29 | Posted in Fashion, interviews | 1 comment »

Via Business of Fashion:

Ten years ago at 19:27 GMT on 27 November 2000, at a time before streaming runway shows, before Facebook, before YouTube, before the rise of Web 2.0 itself, Nick Knight’s transformative fashion website SHOWstudio.com went live. Mr. Knight, a boundary-breaking fashion photographer, had considered the internet and saw something that others did not: where many in the industry saw only ugliness and risk, he saw the potential for emotion, connection and opportunity. Crucially, he also understood that digital — inherently active, social, transparent and restless — would fundamentally transform the “closed” fashion system and radically change the way fashion media was created and consumed. While others averted their eyes, Nick  Knight set about catalysing the revolution.”

In front  of an audience of 200,  Nick Knight  shares his thoughts on fashion, Showstudio and much more. The conversation even became a trending topic on Twitter!
