NEW YORK — “Please wait for the train. It’s all about the train,” Anna Wintour said in vain Wednesday afternoon as photographers shot a cadre of British fashion types on a subway platform at Grand Central Terminal.
The train in question was wrapped in the Union Jack to help launch the Great campaign, a marketing effort championed by Sir Peter Westmacott, Britain’s ambassador to the U.S. Despite promises that the train would be coming back, it never did (so it goes sometimes in New York). No matter, Victoria Beckham was the one the flashbulb poppers were after, calling out her name incessantly.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
