Made the very excellent Business of Fashion newsletter today with my piece from yesterdays WSJ on Uniqlo….
Great company. I love their approach of listening to both the customer and their on floor sales teams, so that they can really supply what the customer wants. They own their supply chain too which is also something Frida Giannini of Gucci said was essential to a great fashion business when I interviewed her. Three best Uniqlo pieces this season:
women’s engineer boatneck t £14.90
women’s skinny fit cargo pants £19.90 on the website
and my favourite which I’m considering buying for myself – the men’s biker jacket £59.90
Lime Walk Hampstead Heath – beautiful -no? Note one of my dogs in the left hand corner…
My Wall St Journal column today is an interview with Gucci’s creative director, Frida Giannini. Great show yesterday….
Loved her. Cool, feisty and talented… you can read it here: Frida
I’m really fortunate because I get to interview fashion designers (amongst other people) for my WSJ column. Recently I’ve been chatting to Manolo Blahnik, Michael Kors and Christopher Kane. They all had a few things in common: a sense of humour, an incredible passion for what they do and a refusal to settle for second best. Stay tuned for Frida Giannini from Gucci and Donna Karan, both forces of nature…..
