Let’s go through a quick 2015 timeline: January 19: Following the dismissal of Frida Gianninni, Gucci presents its Fall 2015 menswear collection as a collective. “Some skeptics noted what they considered borrowings from other, buzzier labels, including Prada, J.W.

Prepare Yourself—& Your Wallet—for the Net Set Natalie Massenet loves to be first. The former fashion editor was the first person to sell luxury fashion online, the first to launch content out of commerce, and is determined to the be first to cannibalize her own business model.
