Maison Des Fleurs Opens in Al Ain
If you live in the UAE, the French Riviera, or London, chances are you know the thrill of receiving a beautiful black-and-gold box packed with rows and rows of roses. Over the years, Maison Des Fleurs has elevated the art of flower gifting to sophisticated new heights, establishing a global reputation for high-quality blossoms and chic arrangements. The luxury florist is now bringing its botanical expertise to a new locale with the opening of its Al Ain boutique – incidentally its largest in the UAE.
Chiara Ferragni Announces Pregnancy
While there have been plenty of high-profile pregnancy announcements lately, the most surprising one came over the weekend when Chiara Ferragni announced that she was pregnant. Ferragni, who has yet to give the appearance of pregnancy in her photos, and her partner Federico “Fedez” Leonardo Lucia, a popular Italian rapper-singer, stunned their fans by announcing that she was already five months along.
Proenza Schouler to Launch an Affordable Line
After departing from the New York City scene for Paris, Proenza Schouler has continued to shake things up by announcing the launch of White Label, an affordable new sister line. In a statement to the press, designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez shared, “We are excited to finally have an entire range of easy, more casual things to offer alongside the more crafted and fashion-focused pieces that we have explored in the past and will continue to design.” The savvy duo has tapped longstanding style influencer Chloë Sevigny to be the face of the new line, with prices starting at AED 720/SAR 735.
Terry Richardson Blacklisted by Fashion Industry
Ever since the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke, the news cycle has been dominated by more and more reports flooding in about other powerful men. At last count, director James Toback has been accused of abuse and harassment by 310 women, and other allegations have come forward about Harvey’s brother Bob Weinstein, Oliver Stone, Ben Affleck, Val Kilmer, George H.W. Bush, and many more.
However, it has also given rise to resurfacing allegations, particularly those that were levied seven years ago against fashion photographer Terry Richardson in a blistering Jezebel expose. Reports of abuse, misconduct, and harassment perpetrated by Richardson were widespread and well known in the industry, but nothing was done about his behavior and he continued to book high-profile shoots with A-list celebrities. With multiple powerful entities within the fashion industry announcing that they would no longer work with Richardson in any way, his proverbial chickens have now come home to roost.
