Today, the Internet exploded following editors’ receipt of the modeling agencies’ Spring ’15 show packages. Why, you might wonder? Because reality-TV-star-turned-high-fashion model Kendall Jenner appeared on her card listed only as Kendall—that is, sans her last name, à la Iman, Gisele, or Twiggy. Twitter instantly began buzzing about the surname drop—is Kendall trying to separate herself from the Kardashian/Jenner clan? We checked in with Society Management, who has represented Kendall since the Fall ’14 season, when she made her debut walking in Marc Jacobs and Riccardo Tisci’s Givenchy, and a representative told us the whole ordeal was much ado about nothing. In fact, according to her agency, Kendall has been listed with her first name only since Day One.
Considering that Kim and Kanye’s Tisci connection has unquestionably helped boost Kendall’s visibility, it seems unwise that she’d blatantly, and publically, distance herself from her reality-TV kin. However, Society’s assertion still leaves one question: Does Kendall, who’s been around for all of one season, have enough cred to go by a single moniker? Only time will tell, but we have to say, she’s well on her way to proving herself after her runway romps (she walked in Chanel Couture this summer) and appearing in the Fall Givenchy campaign, as well as on the covers of Teen Vogue and Love. Keep it up, young lady.
Marc Jacobs International has tapped a new CEO this morning, WWD reports. Sebastian Suhl, who has served as the chief executive of Givenchy since 2012, will succeed Bertrand Stalla-Bourdillon. During his stint at Givenchy, Suhl spearheaded ambitious retail efforts that have left the house poised to open roughly twenty-five new boutiques in the remainder of the year. Suhl’s appointment comes at a crucial moment for Marc Jacobs, as the designer refocuses efforts on his namesake brand and prepares for an initial public offering. Before heading to Givenchy, Suhl helped stage Prada‘s IPO on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 2011. He will be succeeded at Givenchy by Philippe Fortunato, another LVMH vet and Vuitton’s former North Asian president and CEO.
This season, Marc by Marc Jacobs hosted a virtual casting call via Instagram to find the fresh faces for its Fall ’14 campaign. More than 70,000 hopefuls applied to model Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley’s first collection for the label. Nine were chosen, and their vivid, badass, Technicolor David Sims-lensed images were unveiled earlier this week. But just who, pray tell, are the dynamic individuals who star in the Katie Grand-styled snaps? Why not have a look at brand’s behind-the-scenes film, which debuts exclusively here, and find out? Pay attention to what these youngsters have to say, dear readers, because who knows, maybe Marc will cast you next season.
