PARIS — Retailers arrived at the end of the marathon of international collections with their measured optimism intact — despite punishing heat in Paris and a stream of sour economic news.
“We are still experiencing a strong business trend and our job is to fuel that trend cautiously,” said Barbara Atkin, vice president, fashion direction at Holt Renfrew, Canada. “The good news is that Paris has delivered a fresh new season of lighthearted, gentle clothes enriched with intricate, couturelike craftsmanship. Anything too hard-edged, dark and somber seems out of step.”
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
