So many parades and so many collections in Paris they have spread much, much as to talk about rumors of changes of designers. Meanwhile, we bring you both the News good and the bad news of the fashion industry, to see if we compensate each other. I summarize the most important thing that has happened this week:
- This week was completed the Paris fashion week, and with it, the fashion proposals that we will see the next fall of the major firms. If you have not been able to take a look at all the collections of Paris, Don’t miss the overview that make from Fashionista to know the 10 favorite collections from the specialist press, including the debut of Alexander Wang in Balenciaga, Givenchy proposed originals, the sobriety of Celine, the Baroque style of Alexander McQueen…
- The parade of Chanel, loose, very loose, was accompanied by rumors that Nicolas Ghesquière could replace Karl Lagerfeld. Time will tell if this is true or not.
- Other parades that criticism has raised is that of Slimane for Saint Laurent. The grunge touch has failed to convince nobody and the controversy with the prestigious fashion critic Cathy Horyn continues.
- This week we have also known the gaffe of Mango with the translation. Here we all understand that “slave” is a type of gem, but not in France, which has led the Catalan company apologize in an official statement and to modify the description of the collar on the French web.
- Another bad news that us especially sad is the bad thing being the beginning of 2013 in the fashion trade in Spanish. The fall in sales in February 2013 has been 12%, reports El.
- On the other hand the online stores they continue to grow, especially when they receive major funding from investment groups. So we learned this week that the Condé Nast International Publishing Group will invest 20 million dollars in the Farfetch.com website
