5 redenen om (nog meer) van Alber Elbaz te houden
Alber Elbaz is klein, schattig, vriendelijk en goedlachs. En hadden we 'wereldberoemde designer' al genoemd? De hoofdontwerper van Lanvin is één van de meest gerespecteerde designers van het moment, maar laat dat niet naar zijn hoofd stijgen. In tegenstelling tot zijn collega's (we noemen geen namen, Karl) is hij gewoon… lief. Heerlijk verfrissend in de wereld van vol scherpe oneliners: 5 quotes van Alber Elbaz.
"I always think if I were an editor and I was invited to a show and I would have to wait for 45 minutes in the dark or in the cold or in the heat, maybe I would like to have a fresh drink or a piece of chocolate. Maybe I would love to enjoy a sandwich. I think it is something very easy, very personal, something I would like to enjoy and I want to make other people feel comfortable. That’s all!"
“I’m not jealous of people—I’m only jealous of people who can eat and not gain weight. I respect talent. When I see talent and when I see a good person who comes with the talent, I melt.”
"There was a time when designers hated other designers. But today there is actually major respect between many of us. We understand each other. We are all going through the same stressful process. Before shows we send each other little cards with congratulations; we send each other flowers. We’re kind of a crazy family, but still a family. There are many designers I really respect and love. I love Azzedine (Alaïa). I like Narciso (Rodriguez) and Marc (Jacobs) and Nicolas (Ghesquiére) from Balenciaga. The first collection Raf Simons did for Dior was gorgeous."
"I think modesty is a beautiful word today - and a beautiful attitude."
“I find excitement at work; I don't need anything afterwards. At 10 o'clock at night, all I want to do is come home and watch Keeping Up With The Kardashians. I love them, watching Kim Kardashian get a haircut—it's like a vacation to me.”
