Hermès Hired a New Creative Director of Fashion Accessories

Clémande Burgevin Blachman, a designer who has turned her attention to everything from handbags and furniture to interior design, has joined Hermès as creative director of fashion accessories, WWD has learned.
Burgevin Blachman is perhaps best known for her recent stint as vice president of design at Calvin Klein Home. More recently, she was a creative consultant at Alaïa in Paris.
A spokeswoman for Hermès confirmed Burgevin Blachman’s arrival and title, but declined further comment.
Hermès does not identify the creative heads of its 16 métiers, other than women’s ready-to-wear designer Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski and men’s rtw designer Véronique Nichanian.
Pierre-Alexis Dumas is general artistic director of Hermès.

To be sure, Burgevin Blachman joins a luxury house that is seeing impressively strong momentum. Sales of rtw and accessories vaulted 58.8 percent in 2021 to 2.22 billion euros, up 44.3 percent versus 2019. This business line includes rtw for men and women, belts, costume jewelry, gloves, hats and shoes.
The daughter of antique dealers, Burgevin Blachman has had an unconventional fashion career, starting off at Chanel doing art direction and copywriting, later joining an advertising agency whose clients include Galeries Lafayette and Petit Bateau, and operating a vintage jewelry boutique in Paris, according to a source familiar with her career.
Canadian developer Oakridge recently tapped Burgevin Blachman to design interiors for a 17-story residential tower in Vancouver.

Blackpink’s Jennie is teaming with Gentle Monster for the second time.This week, Blackpink’s Jennie confirmed that her second collaboration with the Korean eyewear brand will be launching sometime next year. The singer uploaded two posts on her official Instagram account hinting at the drop and what fans should expect.

Jennie’s first collection with the eyewear brand, called “Jentle Home,” launched in April 2020 and sold out immediately.

Jentle Home continued to be restocked but sold out almost immediately each time.
In May 2020, Gentle Monster opened a pop-up shop dedicated to Jentle Home, which was a conceptual store-turned-dollhouse to fit the theme of Jennie’s childhood.
Though little details are still known about Jennie’s upcoming second collection, Jentle Garden hints that fans should at least expect some florals or bright hues.
The pieces from Jentle Home were reportedly priced between $250 to $260, with the chains going for $130 each.
Jennie, born Jennie Kim, is most famous for being one of the four members of popular South Korean girl group Blackpink, which also includes Ji-soo Kim, Lalisa Manobal and Chae-Young “Roseanne” Park, known simply as Ji-soo, Lisa and Rosé, respectively, to their legion of Blackpink fans known as “Blinks.”
Most recently, Jennie fronted Chanel’s Coco Neige campaign as the brand’s global brand ambassador. She was also one of the faces for Calvin Klein’s fall 2021 collection, called “The Language of Calvin Klein,” joining the likes of other faces such as Kaia Gerber and Damson Idris.

Everything You Need to Know About Fashion, According to Calvin Klein

Everything You Need to Know About Fashion, According to Calvin Klein

Calvin Klein has been hailed as one of the most iconic fashion designers in history. The American designer became a household name after launching his eponymous label in 1968, initially focusing on women’s apparel, but has since established his brand as a key player in the underwear and denim market. Calvin Klein is known for his distinct ad campaigns, often featuring the best from the celebrity and supermodel world.
As Calvin Klein celebrates his 77th birthday today, November 19, we take a look at what we can learn about fashion from the designer.
Don’t take it too seriously
“What we’re doing is fun – if you have any sense of humor at all.”
Be prepared to mix up your style
“Fashion is about change and, for me, the philosophy is always the same… That the clothes have to be really modern and make women look really beautiful. But, it’s fun to keep changing and to change the silhouettes, to change the fabrics and to change the color.”
Trust your instincts
“Success is how you feel about what you’re doing. You have to please yourself and trust your instincts. You can’t go by what other people think.”
Embrace your true self
“My advice is you need to have a vision. Be confident. Or act as if you are confident as a way to get people to believe in you. Then repetition is reputation. Keep growing, keep changing, but always remain true to yourself and your vision.”
It’s a tough business
“I’m in a business where no one cares about anything except how well your last collection sold.”
Everyone will have their opinions
“You don’t only worry about the people who hate or resent you; in a way, you’re more worried about the people who love you.”
Always strive to achieve what you want
“I think fantasies are for the birds; anything I wanted to do, I did. If there’s something I want, nothing stops me.”
