All in the fashion industry

Have we lost another creative director to the philistines? Dissecting the Dries Van Noten/ Puig deal.

The deal might not prove to be so detrimental after all, yet it doesn’t diminish the sneaking notion that we are living in a time where cultivated thoughtfulness is losing its pull for more tasteless—dare I say—populist ideals. The designer who can keep his or her house afloat without sacrificing the integrity of his or vision is a boon for all of us concerned with good design.
