L’AUTRE YVES S’EN VA
RIP YVES CARCELLE



En 20 ans, #YvesCarcelle a transformé le maroquinier en première marque mondiale du luxe flirtant avec les 6 milliards d’euros de chiffre d’affaires et un résultat opérationnel en croissance à deux chiffres, qui pèse pour près de la moitié de celui de #LVMH. Le bilan de sa carrière d’une vingtaine d’années chez @LVMH_official est très positif, avec le nombre de boutiques multiplié par deux, le chiffre d’affaires par dix„ l’extension vers la #Chine gérée très tôt, une implantation dans toutes les plus grandes capitales du monde, et le développement de la gamme de prêt-à-porter avec @MarcJacobsIntl . Mais voilà à force de succès @LouisVuitton serait devenu un Etat dans l’Etat, de plus en plus indépendant. Un argument suffisant pour que #BernardArnault décide d’y mettre fin. Le jour des 65 ans de Mr. Carcelle ..


“If you look at the history, I mean, everything started like Louis Vuitton, by the way, in the middle of the 19th Century, and for decades luxury was limited to very few European elite. What happened in the second half of the 20th Century is that more and more countries had access to buying power, to aspirations to a better life, and I think it is quite logical that more and more people in the world… whether it is in developed countries, or emerging markets… want to have the pleasure, to share the emotion of luxury products. So, honestly, I don’t see a limit to the expansion. The whole problem that we all have, and Louis Vuitton as the leader of the industry – we are the biggest and the most profitable brand in this industry – is to manage what I call the “paradox of luxury”. How can you grow year after year, and give the satisfaction to many more customers, in many more countries, and at the same time keep this sort of exclusivity of luxury? managing this paradox is one of the keys for permanent success because you cannot take the risk to dilute your image, or dilute your service. And one of the ways we achieve it at Louis Vuitton is the fact that we sell our products only in our own stores.” #2008

@HELLESSY BY #SylvieMillstein
#Resort Spring Summer #2015




#HELLESSY was founded in 2012 by Sylvie Millstein, as a modern philosophy of dressing for women whose lives are organized around a need for pared-down elegance that is versatile and thoughtfully constructed. 


Born in Paris and raised in Versailles by a French father and Japanese mother, Sylvie was educated at the prestigious #HEC Graduate Business School in France. Following her studies, she pursued her love of fashion, becoming a buyer, then senior merchant for Givenchy, Harrods and ultimately, Chanel. Sylvie spent eight years at Chanel, eventually becoming the General Merchandise Manager for Japan. 


While with the epitomous French fashion house, Sylvie acquired a keen knowledge of superior fit and luxe fabrications, characteristics that she has poignantly honed in her own collection.  


In 2007, Sylvie moved from #Tokyo to #NewYork City to start a family. It was here, with her influence of Japanese minimalism that she began to seek refined, yet practical clothing that suited her lifestyle. 


With the founding of #HELLESSY, Sylvie melded her multi-cultural background, expertise in high fashion and experience as a design-driven New Yorker, to create a collection of luxurious staples that celebrate independence, intelligence and beauty. The collection is made in America, and integrates impeccable fabrics and detailing with superb fit, precise construction, and wearability.

Sylvie resides in #NewYork City’s Soho with her husband and two sons.  


Often, fashion is a personal quest..

“Somehow, accidentally, while living my ordinary life, people seem to think I am a #fashion icon.

Everyday a person approaches and asks, “Do you work in fashion?” (no). Young Japanese tourists ask to take my photo and seem astonished I am “on trend”.  Sales people in boutiques and vintage stores ask for details about the different pieces I put together for the day. A hip young woman in a #Soho store told me I look like a young #IrisApfel . Unlike other professors whose students ask them to post lecture notes, my students ask me to post the names of the stores where I shop. While moving through different and sometimes unexpected parts of my city I am also asked what fashion magazine I work for (none). Told more than once I should start a blog, the deciding moment came when a well-known fashion stylist told me I have something important to say and I should say it! 

So I am thinking if I got this far “accidentally”, how far could I really go if I start learning and thinking about fashion with people who really do it and know it?  Since I always do my best thinking and learning in the company of others, to those of you “in the know”, or who are “becoming” too, I invite you to come think, talk and learn with me about fashion and take on the project of making my icon status (and yours) less accidental!”
