Miuccia Prada on CNN TalkAsia

Miuccia Prada recently went to Seoul to bring her “Waist Down” skirt exhibition and CNN’s Anjali Rao interviewed her for TalkAsia. My favourite quote? “I don’t like things that are obvious and so I always try to introduce something that is wrong, something that is different. Just
beauty by itself is too easy.”

Like what I said a few weeks ago, I’m totally loving CNN. It’s great they’re featuring more and more figures from the fashion world. I’m glad they had the opportunity to interview Miuccia. She’s very intelligent, very clever and very smart. I love how she handled herself when she was asked with a tough question about their acquisition phase (Alaia, Jil Sander, Helmut Lang). I thought she answered very well.

Karl Who? Bag

Karl Who? Bag

Words cannot express my disdain for these unnecessary, so-called “eco” bags. I know many, many, many people who collect such trash for the simple, wasteful sake of being trendy. They buy a canvas bag, use it once and they put it in the closet where it will never see the light of day again. Think about it. Whatever happened to the legions of people who went far and beyond to get that “I Am Not a Plastic Bag” tote? Do you still see people carry them? I don’t think so.

Anyhoo, check out Uncle Karl in Nice sporting a Karl Who? bag. God I love this man.

I totally take back everything I’ve said about eco bags. OMG I WANT ONE!

Not “Karl Who?” though but “Bryanboy What?”
