Talk about a concise couture concept. Chanel unveiled its latest haute couture collection on Tuesday online, a stylish video that referenced the legendary Paris nightclub Le Palace in just one minute and 22 seconds.
Desigual CEO Thomas Meyer has acquired a 10% stake in the Spanish fashion brand, which was purchased by the Eurazeo investment firm in 2014. Meyer now becomes the sole shareholder of the Barcelona-based label.
Desigual has hired French visual artist, filmmaker, and illustrator Jean-Paul Goude as its new creative director, responsible for overseeing all visual elements. He will start with the Spanish brand's S/S18 collection.
Leave it to Jean-Paul Goude to work his magic at Roger Vivier with a fabulous cruciform of flat-screen TVs projecting a patchwork of shoe dancing videos, flamenco dancers, Samba musicians and singing handbags.
