Marco Bizzarri on Tapping Alessandro Michele at Gucci

I DID IT MY WAY: “It was extreme luck,” said a relaxed Marco Bizzarri, president and chief executive officer of Gucci, of tapping Alessandro Michele as creative director of the brand almost four years ago.
A week after Gucci reported a 35.1 percent jump in organic sales to 2.1 billion euros in the third quarter, Bizzarri went over the stages of the remarkable trajectory of the brand under his lead and that of Michele during Altagamma’s first Next Design Perspectives event in Milan on Tuesday. “It was the first time I had the opportunity to choose the designer to work with,” said Bizzarri, recalling his first meeting with Michele at his home in Rome, surrounded by antiques and wearing his fur loafers, which he designed for himself and which would become best-selling and trend-setting items globally.
“The personal connection is as important as talent, and it was more an emotional rather than a rational choice; he was aligned with me,” said the executive, pointing to Michele’s different vision for Gucci from what had been done in the past. “I would love to say it was a formula, but there is a huge dose of luck, I did it my way and it

Gucci’s Marco Bizzarri, Farfetch’s José Neves to Be Honored at The New School’s Parsons Benefit

PARSONS TAKES TWO: Two fashion forces — Gucci’s Marco Bizzarri and Farfetch’s José Neves — will be the guests of honor at The New School’s 70th Parsons benefit.
Gucci’s president and chief executive officer and Farfetch’s founder and ceo will be saluted not only for their leadership and innovation, but also for their commitment to sustainability. The executives join the ranks of such other previous honorees as Tommy Hilfiger, Donna Karan, LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, Macy’s, Rihanna and Sarah Jessica Parker.
In commending Bizzarri and Neves for “fostering innovative and inclusive design,” Joel Towers, executive dean of Parsons School of Design, said, “Parsons was founded upon the idea that design can change the world, and our honorees are creating positive change that will impact the industry for years to come.”
Bizzarri, who joined the Kering Group in 2005, took over the helm at Gucci in 2015. With the creative direction of Alessandro Michele, he has seen the label’s sales launch skyward. The Italian house’s sales last year rose beyond 6 billion euros. Bizzarri has racked up all sorts of awards for the Italian label’s turnaround in recent years, including the British Fashion Council’s Business Leader of the Year award in 2016 and

Marco de Vincenzo RTW Fall 2018

Anyone with even the mildest couch-potato inclinations is acquainted with the trauma of being engrossed by your favorite TV show, only to be cruelly interrupted by a loud beep and the dreaded rainbow of test-pattern stripes. No signal. Now what to do?
Marco de Vincenzo channeled that experience into his fall collection, working with the idea of forced disconnection and how it opens your eyes to the pleasures all around you. He was drawing on the TV-viewing memories of his childhood. But “this is a very modern story,” he insisted backstage. “We are always connected and sometimes we need to experiment with life simply by living.” To that end, he cast a charming, fresh perspective on items and concepts that are familiar, not only to his brand — vivid color, texture, a vaguely retro, very Italian hand — but to the everyday wardrobe as well.
The rainbow test patterns were reimagined as glittered stripes on a lame shirtdress with a ruffled hem, a giant duvet coat and puffer wrap, and down the backside of black pants that were plain in front. There was a sweetness and naivete to school uniform plaids done as extra-wide bell-bottoms and apron dresses; likewise to cozy cardigans

Marco Rubio Mocks Donald Trump for His ‘Similar’ Awkward Water Bottle Moment as Twitter Goes Wild

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Back in 2013, then-businessman Donald Trump ridiculed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio for sipping water during his response to the State of the Union.

“Next time Marco Rubio should drink his water from a glass as opposed to a bottle — would have much less negative impact,” Trump tweeted at the time. He also revived the criticism on the campaign trail last year in an attempt to undermine his then-rival for the GOP presidential nomination.

Now, the tables have turned.

In an awkward moment on Wednesday, Trump paused in the middle of a live speech at the White House to search for a drink of water.

After checking under his lectern and coming up empty-handed, Trump was directed to a small table nearby stocked with Fiji water bottles. He then picked up a bottle with both hands and took a sip — a gesture that quickly captured the internet’s attention.

To the delight of many, Rubio himself was one of the first to poke fun of the moment on Twitter.

“Similar, but needs work on his form,” Rubio critiqued in a tweet. “Has to be done in one single motion & eyes should never leave the camera. But not bad for his 1st time.”

Even some Rubio critics had to admit it was a “nice burn.”

CNN’s Chris Cillizza and others also mocked Trump on Twitter.

The ridicule even briefly spilled over, so to speak, to Wikipedia, where someone revised the Fiji Water page to say: “Fiji water is the official thirst quencher of Donald Trump.”

The line was soon removed, however, apparently by a Wikipedia editor.

Marco Rubio ‘Hugging’ Ivanka Trump Is So Painful It’s Covered By Obamacare

On Tuesday, Marco Rubio welcomed Ivanka Trump to the Capitol to meet with lawmakers about tax reform. They shared what scientists might categorize as a “hug,” but we’re not sure. It’s awkward looking, to say the very least.

Now, to be fair, this is in the middle of the action, so the hug might have worked out in the end. But … we’re just not seeing how that’s possible. 

Some of the reactions on Twitter were just gold.

Jeb Bush Jr. Lashes Out At Marco Rubio In Total Bro Attack

Last week, Jeb Bush Jr., the son of former Florida governor and 2016 presidential super PAC beneficiary Jeb “Jeb!” Bush, told a gathering of New York University College Republicans that Florida Sen. Marco Rubio should, “Like, dude, you know, either drop out or do something.” And that’s exactly how he put it. Conor Skelding of Capital New York has the story:


Jeb Bush Jr. told a group of college students Thursday afternoon that Sen. Marco Rubio should “drop out or do something” rather than miss votes by campaigning for president.

“As a Floridian, I’m a little disappointed, because he’s missing, like, 35 percent of his votes. And it’s just, kind of, like, dude, you know, either drop out or do something, but we’re paying you to do something, it ain’t run for president,” Bush Jr. told about about 70 students at a New York University College Republicans event.

Yes, the son of the presidential aspirant bro-ed down hard on the absent Rubio, and he did not stop there, according to Skelding’s report. “We’re way ahead of Marco’s campaign,” said Jeb Jr., before enumerating all the offices that his dad has “set up” in the Sunshine State (four, in case you were wondering).

The only thing that would make this story better would be live audio of Bush’s kid going off on Marco for being, “Like, so lame, dude” — right? So here you go! Live audio re-enacting how we imagine this historic meeting of Republican bros went down:
