TOKYO — Paris-based cosmetics brand Buly will open a store in the trendy Daikanyama area of the Japanese capital on Saturday. It marks the company’s first entry into the Japanese market, as well as its first wholly owned flagship outside of Paris. But Victoire de Taillac, who owns the brand with her husband Ramdane Touhami, said that Buly already has a strong following in Japan.
“Japanese customers have a sense of details, and we put great care into the details in the design of the store, but also in the products, also in the way we wrap it, in the calligraphy. And Japanese customers tend to see everything, so they’ve been very nice because they’re very enthusiastic,” de Taillac said. “And also I think Japanese tend to love Paris, so once they know you have a store opening in Paris you have Japanese press who come right away. And they covered the opening, so from day one we had Japanese customers.”
The iconic Tiffany & Co. Fifth Avenue flagship will have a whole new look come 2021, reports @mistywhitesidell . The 10-story store is being expanded and renovated under the vision of chief artistic officer, Reed Krakoff. #wwdnews
“I feel like the [Emmy] nomination is this absurdly generous bonus to something that I’ve already been excited by for quite some time now,” Darren Criss tells @ktauer about his nomination for his role as Andrew Cunanan in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, “My general attitude toward life is I hope for everything but expect nothing. But when you’re playing for the Warriors, there’s a good chance you’ll make it to the championships. And I’m not saying I’m Steph Curry, but when you’re on [showrunner] Ryan Murphy’s team, it seems more palpable than ever,” he continues. (Criss previously starred on “Glee,” another Murphy creation, although they didn’t directly work together.) “I feel like I’ve already won the lottery.” Read more in WWD.com (📸: @lexieblacklock ) #wwdeye #darrencriss #americancrimestory #emmys2018
