The Biz: Roitfeld Inc.

Carine Roitfeld by Mario Sorrenti for MAC – this marks the first time Sorrenti has shot for MAC!

Think of this as a Biz meets Beauty Bytes moment – in a move that should please eyeliner afficianados everywhere Carine Roitfeld has teamed with MAC to create a limited edition color collection “with a focus on eyes and brows that reflect Carine’s signature look: smoky eye, bold brows and nude lips.” Sounds brilliant and perfect for the expected Fall 2012 release date, certain to coincide with the launch of Roitfeld’s magazine CR Fashion Book.

LVMH’s Bernard Arnault invests in French label Maxime Simoens – major coup for the relative newcomer and a move that is certain to raise his profile!

Even if you aren’t a blushing bride, there were some interesting trends happening during NY’s Bridal Fashion Week. Vera Wang went for crimson with a round of bright red gowns, Oscar de La Renta also showed red looks, but the highlight of his show were the Spanish influenced gowns topped off with mantilla veils.

Who says fashion editors can’t do it all? British Vogue’s Alexandra Shulman managed to write a novel while editing one of the world’s biggest magazines. We’re impressed!

Can you break up with a label? The New York Times seems to think soElle‘s Anne Slowey details post-pregnancy her breakup with Balenciaga, Junya Watanabe and Comme des Garçons.

Ever wonder how the Calvin Klein brand stays ahead of the curve? Find out in WWD’s lengthy and interesting interview with Tom Murry, president and chief executive officer of Calvin Klein Inc.

  1. Does this mean she’ll style Ajak or will the latter promote another line coz i heard rumours somebody got a MAC gig… I don’t mean to sound bitchy but LOL at calvin klein staying ahead of the curve. They are still relying on the cool factor Calvin gave it all those decades ago. It isn’t bad, but its not at the head of the pack. Theis spring show was good, but it was an exception. But I may be bitter because I really REALLY hate their hitler youth casting for all their damn shows. I’m gonna shut up now.

  2. I LOVE Carine Roitfeld, and I LOVE me some MAC, but this collaboration doesn’t appear all that exciting!! I mean brows, eyeliners and another smokey eye quad…not exactly revolutionary considering we know Carine doesn’t do color!! My fingers are crossed!!

    Calvin Klein ahead of the pack, really, seriously, c’mon!! Pardon my eye roll while I kiki!!

    I’m not being bitter, bitchy or shady..just 100% reals!

  3. That NY Times story about breaking up with a label was the most bizarre thing I’ve read in a while. I get that ppl love fashion or certain designers and labels, but the pathology described in the article was …I don’t even know what adjective would encompass the mixture of confusion, mild contempt, and astonishment it elicited in me.
