YSL Beauté Sponsors Films
A series called “La nuit de” (meaning the night of) consisting of eight short films are set to air on France’s Canal+ television channel and its website. The black-and-white film series, sponsored by Yves Saint Laurent Beauté, will start airing today and end on March 31st. Directed by Fabien Constant, the mini-films are a little over two minutes each, and portray actors, musicians, authors, and dancers. Each clip was filmed during one night in Paris. Pierre Niney, Pierre Perrier, Olivier Barthélémy, Simon Buret, and Loris Gréaud are all featured.
Suzy Menkes Joining Condé Nast International
Suzy Menkes is set to join Condé Nast International as a critic and reporter for all the Vogue websites. Menkes previously spent 25 years as style editor at the Paris-based International New York Times. She will now work in London, though there are 19 Vogue websites. “Suzy Menkes is a unique talent, with superb judgement about fashion and keen insight into the business behind it. She is hugely influential and respected. Her contribution will bring even greater quality and authority to the Vogue brand,” Condé Nast International said in a statement.
Nasty Gal Expanding
The online retailer Nasty Gal is adding more in-house designed product categories to its website and is planning the opening of its first brick-and-mortar store. The company has also hired Sheree Waterson as president and chief product officer. In April, Nasty Gal will offer in-house designed swimwear. The e-tailer already carries swimwear from other brands, but this will be the first time Nasty Gal will sell swim with their label on it. Nasty gal-designed footwear was introduced in August and last year, in-house product sales made up 30 percent of revenue.
