Roberto Cavalli said Anna Wintour’s personal style has influenced American fashion to a degree that makes it “terrible.”
In an on-camera interview, La Repubblica asked Cavalli what advice he’d give to young people who want to work in fashion, and the 71-year-old designer said he wants to see less minimalism and monotony. Cavalli said that instead of following the advice of designers and influential editors, they should “try to create a new and different direction.”
“Just look at American fashion, which is almost fashion — it’s terrible and you almost can’t even look at it,” Cavalli said. “But it has been driven by a great journalist, Anna Wintour, who wants all women to be like her and dress the way she does. It’s difficult, so I can only say, try to be different, and try to create artistic fashion styles.”
To be fair, Wintour does her share to promote young talent — she helped establish the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund with the intent of getting young designers access to the resources and capital needed to grow their brands. Maybe the designs of the Fund’s recipients, like Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang, and Joseph Altuzarra, are still too minimalist for Cavalli’s taste.
Jean Paul Gaultier has created a new limited edition collection of Diet Coke bottles entitled Night and Day.
The limited edition collection of bottles was revealed at a news conference at the Crazy Horse burlesque club in Paris. Gaultier was appointed as the creative director for the soft drink brand last month.
The Day bottle is dressed up in JPG’s signature Breton stripes while Night is adorned in his iconic cone-shaped corset as worn by Madonna on her 1990 Blonde Ambition tour.
The two bottles Gaultier has created for the brand mirror the packaging for the designer’s signature Classique and Le Male scents.
A third bottle, Tattoo, will be released later in 2012.
Gaultier joins the ranks of other fashion designers who have renewed the Diet Coke bottle, including Karl Lagerfeld, Matthew Williamson and Roberto Cavalli.
The limited edition Coke bottles are available from UK Harvey Nichols stores from Monday 16 April.
