Thierry Mugler is holding interactive fragrance workshops through Sept. 18, while Perfumepaths is a fragrance-related guided walk in English. Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton has an exhibition on called “Confusion of the Senses.” And the Musée de Cluny hosts the show “The Bath and the Mirror,” highlighting beauty and bathing from antiquity through the Middle Ages.

The nonprofit organization founded by filmmaker Jeremy Gilley aims to make Sept. 21 acknowledged as the Day of Peace. In 2001, the United Nations adopted a resolution making that day one of nonviolence and global cease-fire. Parfums Christian Dior is among the supporters of Peace One Day.
DESIGNER DEBUT: John Richmond hopes his first fragrance will work (internationally) like a charm. The designer, who, with his licensee, EuroItalia, introduced a signature scent in Italy in May, will begin rolling it out in European markets, excluding France and Russia, starting in October. The U.S. and Asia are scheduled to get the fragrance in 2010. A removable padlock charm around the bottle’s neck is reminiscent of a piece of jewelry Richmond wears, and a tattoolike print Richmond sketched also decorates the scent’s silver outer carton. Blended by International Flavors & Fragrances perfumers, the scent’s floral fruity juice features notes of pink grapefruit, pear, dewberry, magnolia, white sand lily, daffodil, sandalwood, patchouli and amber. The eau de parfum will be available in 30-, 50- and 100-ml. spray versions priced at $56, $79 and $107 at current exchange, respectively. There’s also a body lotion and shower gel. According to industry sources, the fragrance will generate $1.7 million in the U.K. in its first year. Model Leila Ben Khalifa, naked save for some accessories and jewelry, features in the new scent’s advertising campaign that was lensed by Tom Munro. COME AND GET IT!: Customer response to Frederic Fekkai’s shampoo swap — a one-day event that allowed consumers to bring in any full-size shampoo they use to get one free full-size Fekkai Advanced Shampoo of their choice — was huge. By noon Thursday, hundreds of women had lined up outside Saks Fifth Avenue in Manhattan to trade in their old suds for new ones.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director. One of fashion’s preeminent image-makers and trendsetters, Slimane is to join the LVMH brand on Feb. 1 and unveil his first fashion proposition for men and women next September during Paris Fashion Week. It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
