credit: Mary Scherpe

Suzy Menkes, die Reich-Ranicki der Mode, wie sie kürzlich im ZEIT Magazin genannt wurde, ist derzeit in Berlin. Dort moderiert sie die alljährliche Luxuskonferenz der IHT, die dieser Tage im Berliner Ritz-Carlton stattfindet. Zu Themen wie “Technology is Our Present – and Our Future”, “The Power of Human Hands”, “Smart Cars”, “Smart Media” und “Lux-Online” werden so mehr oder weniger berühmte und wichtige Menschen wie Christopher Bailey (Burberry), Tomas Maier (Bottega Veneta), Frida Giannini (Gucci), Claus-Dietrich Lahrs (Hugo Boss AG) and Alain Dominique Perrin (Compagnie Financière Richemont) referieren. Mary hat vorab Suzy Menkes zum Interview getroffen, das zu Themen wie das Editorialista Phänomen und “fashion editors all dressed up looking model-like” so scharfe Antworten hervorbrachte wie

…you know some blogs are rubbish, but some are really good and really interesting. And the fact that various people bubbled up to the surface because of the internet has brought a great value to fashion.


But critical don’t has to mean, that you don’t like it. Sometimes there is a lot of rudeness and ignorance on the blogs. I find it quite depressing, especially when they are attacking a designer, who has given a tremendous value to the world and is maybe slightly fading. But you still have to take in the equation, what she or he has done in the past.


Twitter is a great example for a sort of give and take. Of course there are annoying things. I am so not interested to know when somebody sits in the front row and their shoes hurt, but someone in the frontrow might also make a really good tweet, where the 140 characters can say something really funny and punchy. It just depends on the person.
