Long Live Marc Jacobs


The DSK story might end up with a dismissal of charges but we have something else to worry about, another good story to chat on: Will Marc Jacobs take over Dior? It seems as a done deal. Why would Marc Jacobs refuse anyway? Following on the footsteps of Christian Dior, Marc Bohan or John Galliano, and probably securing a lucrative deal, what is there to say no? On the LVMH end, they know the guy, he is part of their team and they know he is the one. So it might be less exciting than the DSK file to follow but who knows… unexpected rebounds?

Galliano ‘s judgement


10 000 Euros: This is what the court requested from John Galliano yesterday in Paris with verdict in September. It is quite enough: the man has lost his job, his reputation and has been severely punished. For this defense, Galliano stated his many addictions: sleeping pills, barbiturates and alcohol” I only see two as barbiturates and sleeping pills are the same more or less.

A French Voice in New York


She defines herself as a soprano, she plays the lincordian, a transparent accordion, and her crystalline voice sings in French and in English.

She is a modern Iseult seducing her Tristan with her romantic ballads. Her show, directed  by Jacques Perdigues (He worked with Thierry Mugler and John Galliano) is about colors, colors of love, of moods, black or grey, red or blue. On her long white dress are displayed words in French and in English.

(From the author: For those of us who work in a bilingual world, having to constantly say it in French, say it in English,  the idea of a double- faced dress, “face” in French and “pile” in English is a tempting solution!)

In the same vein as Brigitte Fontaine or Marie Laforet, Nicole Renaud is an inspiring young woman, a poet who dwells in nostalgia. She started with Mireille, the famous Mireille (Hartuc), a composer for Maurice Chevalier and Charles Trenet and a singer herself who started Le Petit Consevatoire de la Chanson in 1955 launching Francoise Hardy and… Nicole Renaud.

Nicole closes her show with a 1800 Venetian aria “Barchetta” and transports you in a Bal Masqué on the Grand Canal.

Nicole Renaud – Feb 5 – 8pm – Theaterlab 137 W 14th street
