There’s Magic in Longtime Collaborations -- The Cut

nymag.com — Relationships are everything in the fashion world. It's hard to even quantify the effects of a close attachment like that of Pat McGrath and Steven Meisel. Who's to say what Yves Saint Laurent might have made if he hadn't met Betty Catroux or Loulou de la Falaise?

Louis Vuitton Takes Off in Cyberspace -- The Cut

nymag.com — On Wednesday, my last night in Paris, I spied Karl Lagerfeld leaving the Café de Flore with a few friends. I guess Chanel Airlines was grounded and Karl had returned to Earth.

In Paris, the Models Talk Back

nymag.com — Olivier Saillard's latest performance piece, Models Never Talk, was aptly named.

Staving Off Cynicism at Comme, McQueen, & Céline -- The Cut

nymag.com — Many designers, if they bothered to look at images from Hedi Slimane's Saint Laurent show last night - motley jean jackets and trashy dresses shown with rubber waders and tiaras - will probably want to throw in the towel today and retire to Ibiza.

Up Close, Raf Simons’s Vision for Dior Is Clear -- The Cut

nymag.com — Crawling in traffic this week past the Louvre, I glanced in several times at the hillock being constructed by Dior in the Cour Carrée, where in the age before Rihanna the Paris shows were held in modest tents with wooden floors.

Céline's Woman-Friendly Triumph

nymag.com — Last night, French Vogue celebrated its 95th anniversary - why wait for 100? - with a dance party that drew out Rihanna, Kanye West with his mother-in-law Kris Jenner and a beefy posse (followed in by a startled Victoire de Castellane, Dior's jewelry designer), scads of models in slinky couture spangles, and designers.
