For the past few months, rumors have been swirling that Frida Giannini was about to be replaced in her post as creative director at Gucci , with Riccardo Tisci often touted as her potential successor. Now, Giannini has addressed the talk in an interview with WWD. “These rumors are self-generated, and even engaged François-Henri Pinault, who came to Rome and told me they were not true,” she said. “Actually, he was concerned that the rumors would not let me work serenely.” In fact, Giannini notes, she has just renewed her contract with the storied Italian house and is busy preparing to celebrate her tenth year at its helm in 2015.
Is it just us or is everyone on vacation right now? If they aren’t already, nearly every friend, coworker, and family member seems to have a trip booked to Miami or St. Barts in the very near future. All we can say is…we want in. Before we know it, things will be crazy again with Resort collections, the Spring menswear shows, and everything else happening this summer. Now’s the time to unplug—preferably on a far-flung island where temperatures are a consistent 85 degrees. A few wardrobe updates are in order, of course, including a superluxe beach towel, a SPF-shielding (and cute!) rash guard, of-the-moment rainbow sunnies, and the perfect flat sandals.
