CHIC IN REVIEW

After Slimane, Saint Laurent Courts Anthony Vaccarello

Plus, Pharrell takes root at G-Star and Balmain might start a bidding war.


Alaïa, Azzedine Runs on his own time, showed fall on Sunday for a who’s who that included Natalia Vodianova and Monica Bellucci.

Balmain May be at the center of a bidding war: Valentino‘s owners reportedly offered $569 million to buy the label, currently helmed by Oliver Rousteing, while rumors also circulate that Chinese and American investors are eyeing the fashion house.

Boselli, Pietro Your daily eye candy; a math teacher, model, and Armani favorite.

Kjartansson, Ragnar Icelandic artist and a busy, busy guy whose hybrid art consisting of video, politics, and repetition earned him a spot in more than 20 exhibitions last year — including a coveted debut at the Palais de Tokyo.

Slimane, Hedi Former Saint Laurent creative director is perhaps fashion’s closest Steve Jobs analogue. We wouldn’t expect a biopic any time soon, though.

Trump, Donald And in presidential politics, yes, the Donald’s campaign is just as unhinged as you thought.

Vaccarello, Anthony Protégé of Donatella Versace, recently departed from sister brand Versus Versace, is looking increasingly like the heir to the throne of Hedi Slimane at Saint Laurent.

Warhol, Andy The pop artist’s Upper East Side studio can be yours for a cool ten million.

Williams, Pharrell Not a creative director, a “head of imagination.” This is why we can’t have nice things.
