• Like a good Parisienne, former Vogue Paris Editor-in-Chief Carine Roitfeld is suffering from acute ennui. In her biography, Irreverent, slated to release next month, she expresses just how over the fashion right now: “Fashion isn’t as much fun as it once was. It’s less light-hearted, less spontaneous. Fashion has become an industry, one that increasingly stifles creation. Sometimes I go to runway shows and I feel like I am at a medical convention, or a corporate seminar. There’s no excitement anymore, no amazement, none of the madness you could experience even a few years back … I respect this business, and I understand the risks involved, but I also want to preserve a degree of naivete and spontaneity. Because fashion is nothing without its carefree side.” (The Cut)
