Lanvin Appoints New Creative Director
Bruno Sialelli has been named the new creative director of Lanvin. He was most recently menswear design director at Loewe, and he has previously worked in womenswear at Balenciaga, Acne Studios, and Paco Rabanne. Lanvin’s previous creative director, Olivier Lapidus, was ousted last March after only two seasons. Meanwhile its menswear designer, Lucas Ossendrijver, left in November after 13 years. In August the house hired a new CEO, Jean-Philippe Hecquet.

Paris Men’s Week Ends with Celine’s First Menswear Show
One of the first changes Hedi Slimane announced for Celine was the addition of a menswear collection. His first men’s pieces were presented during his debut runway show for the brand last September. But now the house has held its first-ever solo men’s show. The results? Much of what fans expect from Slimane: narrow, tailored looks with an old-school sense of cool.

Schiaparelli Kicks Off Couture Week
Welcome to Spring 2019 couture week! Schiaparelli kicked things off in Paris this morning with a bold and wonderfully weird collection that Elsa herself would have enjoyed. Bright colors, intricate patters, voluminous silhouettes, and a variety of feathers brought a sense of fun to the runway. It set an upbeat mood for the rest of the week.

The Spice Girls Apologize For Poor Working Conditions Used to Make Charity Tees (British Vogue)
In November, to coincide with their reunion tour, the Spice Girls released a charity t-shirt supporting Power Up, a charity that champions women’s equality. Unfortunately the shirts have since come under fire due to the poor working conditions of the factory workers who made them. Apparently the workers were “forced to work up to 16 hours a day and were verbally abused and harassed for not hitting targets.” Additionally Power Up has yet to receive any money from the sales.
