Interview with Libertine designer Johnson Hartig
Much-lauded LA-based designer Johnson Hartig recently announced his plans to show at New York’s Fall Fashion Week – the first appearance since splitting with his partner Cindy Greene in 2009. In his interview with Alexa, Hartig talks about his plans for his Spring 2012 collection, the challenge of finding the right vintage clothes to use as a base for his line, and his unique inspirations — including the New York Post! “I have a headline hanging on my wall, ‘Dopey Thieves,’ that I’d like to make into a T-shirt print, maybe.”
The secrets of “It” Brit Brand Mulberry
Boldface names from Blake Lively to Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton can’t get enough of heritage British brand Mulberry’s uber-chic satchels. The label’s creative director Emma Hill reveals the secrets of her success to Alexa and talks about the brand’s new store in Soho, “An amazing former industrial design building that’s been home to a zipper factory, printers and book repository over the years – the eclectic nature of its history fits so well with our style.” And she says: “Because we’re a British band, we’re also just a little bit cheeky!”
