changes. Brands are losing their designers, designers are leaving fashion houses, CEOs swaps lavishly decorated offices. So far the only constant that remains undisturbed are the editors of biggest fashion magazines, firmly holding onto their chairs. Must be "something about the Universe and how it's all connected..." as Sting sang once.
Alessandra Facchinetti is leaving Tod's after three beautiful years at the helm of the Italian fashion house that I fell in love with all over again because of her collections. So far it's been the longest streak of her career that began as two seasons at Gucci as Ford's replacement, followed by a year at Valentino, then three years as a creative director of Uniqueness and finally, Tod's where she always gave us something to dream of including what I will always refer to as "one of the most perfect summer dresses". I sincerely hope she will find her happy place because all this border-crossing and changing cannot possibly be good for both emotional and creative state of mind.
P.S. Had to include this particular photo of Alessandra because this look makes such a fantastic idea for a summer outfit.
