David Beckham in talks with Adidas. Giorgio Armani has a few words for Anna Wintour and a trend ending with this post.
Word has hit the street that Mrs. Beckham will not be designing the uniform design and colors of David Beckham’s Miami soccer team. Although she is kind of a big deal in the fashion world, Victoria is focusing on expanding her fashion ranges in New York. I don’t even know why this is news because I never thought for a second that they were going to work together. The former Manchester United star is in talks with Adidas to provide the logo, uniforms and accessories for his MLS Miami team. Although she might not be hands on with the fashion of the team, Mrs. Beckham will have say in the final product. He revealed that he always get an approval from Victoria before he leaves the house. “She is my wife, so I trust her opinion, so if she says I look bad, I’m not going to argue with that,” he told USA Today earlier this month.
David is the only thing I will ever like about Manchester United in the history, present and future of that team. Although something tells me that Miami’s uniform is going to be similar to MANU’s. Only time will tell.
Time is fashion. Fashion does not wait for anyone even if you are Giorgio Armani. Anna Wintour missed Armani’s Fall 2014 show because she had to be present for Paris Fashion Week. Many people noticed this so did Armani who was not pleased at all had a thing or two to say about her absence. “There are some who prefer to snub the Giorgio Armani show and go to Paris” Armani said clearly referring to Anna Wintour. Armani does not completely blame Ms. Wintour, he blames the way fashion week was scheduled. He was the only label showing on the last of Milan Fashion Week which caused editors and fashionistas to fly to Paris.
“Why should I always be the moron [translating from an Italian expletive] to be penalized because of a person, who, for better or for worse, like or dislike it, is powerful? I feel penalized,” he nagged. “She said she was sending her people. But if you go to see your dentist and he puts you in the hands of his assistant, what’s your reaction? They told me ‘She went to see the Privé in Paris; she has no time to see the ready-to-wear in Milan.’ She is influential and powerful. But, perhaps, I’m influential as well.”
In Anna Wintour’s defense, she had to choose between Milan and Paris. Even Anna Wintour cannot make everyone happy. But if it makes Mr.Armani feel any better, I did watch the show and it was good.
I have been over the sneaker wedge trend before it even hit the streets. A trend is over the very moment everyone can afford it because it has been copied a lot. That is fashion for you. So you can imagine how delighted I was to read that Isabel Marant, the creator of the sneaker wedge is so over the trend as well. “I don’t wear them as often as I used to because I see too many bad copies in the street” she told WWD. That is where we stand on the sneaker wedge. I think at this point, they should be saved for Saturdays. Where do you stand on the sneaker wedge bandwagon?
