French President Nicolas Sarkozy gave Giorgio Armani the Légion d'Honneur in Paris on Thursday. Women's Wear Daily has an impressive interview with Oscar De La Renta and the house's CEO Alex Bolen. Topics on the table included the "state of de la Renta's $100 million wholesale business and their desire to be considered on par with world-famous European houses, the difficulties with licensed partners and where they see the company headed over the next several years." The biggest revelation? Oscar and Alex see no reason the house will ever be for sale. Art and fashion! Art and fashion. Go together like horse and carriage. Hermés is at the Tate, Richard Price has bags with Louis Vuitton! Also fashion photography is getting more respect as an art form with an exhibit at Photographer's Gallery in London. Even the Australians are getting into the kicking counterfeiting butt thing.
