Fashion buzz: Heidi Klum’s scarily good Halloween costume, LVMH offered to purchase Tiffany & Co. and more
Heidi Klum wins Halloween again
Heidi Klum is the Queen of Halloween—there's no doubt about that. But this year, the German supermodel took things to the next level by dressing up as an alien, complete with prosthetic rotting fleesh, exposed heart and intenstines. It's not for the faint of heart, for sure. She made sure the rest of the world could get in on her preparation by doing a "Halloween with Heidi Klum" livestream with Amazon which spanned over 14 hours—talk about dedication.
Take a look back at all of her Halloween costumes from the past 19 years:
Salvatore Ferragamo returns to Milan Men's Fashion Week
Following few seasons of co-ed shows, Salvatore Ferragamo will be returning to Milan Fashion Week to present its men's collection, scheduled on January 12 during the Autumn/Winter 2020 season. In a statement by the brand, CEO Micaela le Divelec Lemmi says: "In a phase of great consolidation of the brand's style and identity, we restarted last June from Florence, where our story began, to affirm who we are, but it's more then natural for us to come back to the Milanese fashion week. Along with other important brands of the Made in Italy, we enthusiastically accepted the fashion chamber's invite to be united also on the men's front."
Giorgio Armani's Cruise 2021 show in Dubai
On the other hand, Giorgio Armani will be showing its Cruise 2021 collection in Dubai to coincide with the reopening of the brand's store at the Dubai Mall. The Italian fashion house previously staged its Cruise 2020 show in Tokyo, and presented a line-up of designs that are influenced by the Japanese culture. "I'm very happy to be back in Dubai after 10 years, especially on the occasion of the Expo 2020 which will place a great emphasis on the city. Dubai is a luxurious and fascinating place with a soul focused on the future, always in pursuit of the imagination," said Giorgio Armani in a statement.
John Galliano continues at Maison Margiela
Five years after her first joined Maison Margiela, it's been announced that British designer John Galliano has renewed his contract as creative director of the Paris-based fashion house. According to WWD, sales have doubled ever since Galliano's arrival in 2014, and handbags and sneakers, in particular, accounted for 60 percent of the business.
LVMH offers to purchase Tiffany & Co.
French luxury goods giant LVMH is in a bid to buy Tiffany & Co., and has made a $14.5 billion USD offer for it. While the jeweller has yet to approve the deal, if it goes through, this would be the most expensive acquisition the conglomerate has ever made, and it'll join the long list of brands under LVMH, including Dior, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Rimowa and more. Stay tuned for updates.
Zac Posen closes its doors
After almost 20 years in business, Zac Posen has announced that his labels—including House of Z and Z Spoke—is ceasing operations after failing to secure an investment in time. The company is now in the process of disposing its assets, and the Spring/Summer 2020 collection that was shown during New York Fashion Week back in September will not be produced. However, his role as the womenswear creative director of Brooks Brothers will continue. The American designer posted a heartfelt post on Instagram, saying: "I want to express my appreciation to our extraordinary team and for all those who have stood by me and the brand. I owe a great deal of gratitude for their unwavering support for and dedication to the Company. I am grateful to the team who lent their incomparable talent and commitment along the way. I remain incredibly proud of what we created and hopeful for the future. Love ZP."
