"So, and I have to say, so you've created a four step line here, which I have to, I love the packaging, very slick. Also, it's like so easy because sometimes it's like, guys are like, what stuff do I do? What do I do? Tell us a little bit about this. So I'll start with why, right? Why, I mean, I'll get into the line after. I'll tell you why men even should use different products. And this is why I actually created this. So did a lot of studies. I actually vetted the market with real-time consumers to see like, okay, guys, men's skincare has been a topic of discussion, but you guys just don't use it. Like, why is that? So a couple of reasons, you're right. Perfume is one thing. They don't want to feel feminine because they're like, oh my God, if I use my girl's product, what if there's a color in it? Because like my boyfriend, my chapstick, and he's like, you put lipstick on me. I'm like, no, it's chapstick, but it has like an undertone to it. So it's on you. And then their skin is actually 25 to 30% thicker than ours. Sucks because we have period and hormones. So our base is just thinner. So we need products that are more like, you know, catering to our skin tone. And I have a very dry skin, so I need heavy, heavy, heavy moisturizer. For guys, they have to do the opposite because you're right, they produce a lot more sebum. So their T-zone tends to be oily, but then the shave area where they have to grow hair is thicker. It's more prone to acne and they're constantly shaving. So they have a lot of burns and then they turn into acne. And then they also have a lot of blackheads and whiteheads around their nose area and like just this area. So they do need different products. And that's when I was like, you know what? If I create something, I want to make sure it is really specific to men's issues. So they actually, when they use the product, they instantly feel a difference. Yeah. So yeah, we can talk about the products. Take a guess where the, I got the inspiration for the packaging. Where, so where, I do love it. Is it Chanel? Very much so, right? Cause Chanel blue kind of looks like that. I don't know if you can see it on here, but it is, it's like a beautiful navy blue. And this is really good packaging. The airless pump packaging is very, very high quality. So, and I love that it's a four step line, right? Super easy. You know, I can't wait for my husband to start using this. I was like, don't touch it until I have my podcast because it's all going to look neat and clean. But tonight- You got to tell him what he thinks because, okay, tips and tricks, right? So why I did four step, cause guys think four step is a lot for them. And you are doing a 10 step skin routine. Not happening, not happening. So a couple of reasons, the packaging I chose because this is actually 65% recyclable. Pumps, unfortunately, at this time and age are not there yet. But it is, we're trying to make it more sustainable with our next round. So this is an airless pump. It looks like a glass bottle, but it's not. However, the top, the reason I chose the pumps was because when you think about a jar and even as females, when we're like double dipping, cause I like lather, like all the moisturizer on my face as much as I can at night and I'm double dipping. So you'll see like eyelash in there or just like the grease from my face going back into the jar and men are not as clean as we are. So they're like double dipping, deodorant and like haircare products and just touching the jar. So it gets contaminated and that's why you tend to have breakouts after certain uses of the product. So I wanted to make sure there's, it's a no touch. So number one has, it's actually made out of, it's a fully vegan line. It's made in Los Angeles. It's created by dermatologists and two scientists and my baseline, I wanted to create something between a skin sorticles, but also affordable, but also effective for the male skin type. So I'm gonna give you guys all the secrets and I'll tell you which ones the females should actually use. Okay, oh yeah, give it to me. I love this and you're probably gonna finish your husband's half the products. But number one, so this is an exfoliating cleanser. Okay. So ladies and gents, if you're watching, never ever use those apricots, like crusty, scrubby scrubs ever. It's like literally rubbing your face against sandpaper carpet. Or glass, yeah, it is. It's so bad and like obviously it was marketed so well over the years, but it's really bad for you. So you want to use gentle cleansers that actually penetrate inside your pores and cleans that inside out. So this has fruit acids. It has caffeine and it helps you wake up and kind of like goes deep into your pores. I like to use number one, three times a week as a female, but guys tend to use it every day because they have thicker skin and they have a lot of oil. So it really goes deep into your pores to take out the gunk. And I like to use it in the shower because what happens, your pores open up with the warm water. So it really helps penetrate and clean. And you will see like, if you do it before and after, if you just take a picture of yourself before the shower and then you come out, you're gonna see an instant difference. Like you'll see a lot of that.

"Okay, so we know that you have founded this, which is sort of surprising to me to create this company for men after working in essentially, you know, I know Kiehl's has some, you know, obviously male focus line, but what made you decide to sort of go with like these traditionally, I would say, female companies, directed companies to go into creating a line of skincare for men? Oh, wow, a couple of reasons, right? And I'm gonna be very candid about all those reasons because obviously like, I think even customers can kind of smell the bullshit, right, from people. So there are a couple of reasons. One thing for me was when I used to do strategy and even this is an epiphany that I had in my last job was I have always followed the, since P &G, P &G is doing Gillette. So Gillette back in the day was the razor company for males, females, everything, they dominated the market and nobody could crush them, nobody could touch them. Then came Harry's and then came Dollar Shave Club. And these companies were so successful. So when I was a kid, then I was like, wow, how did they do that? It's like, they were so untouchable. Like they completely blew them out of the water and now they made something big out of it. So I always had the curiosity mindset. So I started following the male market at that point. And when I used to do strategy, you pull global numbers and you're always like looking at where their next opportunity is. So female market, I mean, just to give you a number, we have about more than 130,000 beauty brands in the world. And only a very, very, very small handful is targeted towards men. Wanna take a guess on just skincare? Let's just take skin, take color out of this. If the skincare market is $160 billion globally, give me a wild guess, how big do you think men's is? Like a 2 billion? Slightly more, but I think- Okay, right, of 160, fine. I don't know, 10 billion? Well, what is it? I'm not, you know. Yeah, so it's less than seven, less than 8%. So about 7% is towards men. Now of that 7%, the 50% is in Asia. Oh, okay. So as you know, beauty does really well. China is already onto makeup. Japan is very open with that. So I feel like in the past few years, we have seen this era of beauty stemming from the East and now coming to the West and we're just following that trend. So it's good to, so that was a very good learning for me from a numbers standpoint. The second thing, I actually had a cousin and a friend of mine, you know, like when we were in high school and college, they had massive like acne issues and self-esteem issues. And very short, obviously like it didn't end well. It actually ended pretty badly for the two guys in my life, at least my cousin and my friend. There were suicides and it was due to like other mental health issues as well. But I think self-esteem when it comes to boys and this generation is raising a very, very lonely set of guys now because social media, the pressure of like looking a certain way and having like so much money. So when you think about the dating pool, we're really raising a very lonely generation of men. And it's kind of sad, right? Like as females, we have makeup, red lipstick, spa, whatever, Botox, fillers, I don't name anything. It's females that are consuming that. But where do guys go? They just have shaving. So thank God for that. But that's the other reason I was like, you know what? I want to create something that men can also do. It's quick, it's simple. It's gonna make, it's like a self-care system. More than just the gym, more than just shaving, but it's gonna have long-term benefits. And when they do it, they're gonna have like a feel good effect. Just it's, you know, perks people up. So we have studied that. God, you know, after using the skincare, my skin just feels so good. And I actually feel really confident. I'm going on a date and I feel good about myself. Third thing is I'm actually improving the dating market for all the ladies out there. Because when you look at all the girls, like walk into a bar, you're like, oh yeah, she's pretty, she's pretty, she's pretty. When you look at the guys, they're like, God, you guys are all below five. What's wrong with you? Go wash your face. So that was the other thing of like, you know, all my friends, including myself over at the dating pool, were like, what is wrong with our men? Can you guys just please like clean up, fix up? Like you'll be, you'll be a solid seven if you just. You know, I feel like do, listen, you know, there are fundamental differences between male skin and female skin, right? Different ways of sebum production. We actually have different needs. Forget about, you know, shaving and hair growth and all of that stuff. But on the other hand, you know, I've been married now for 10 years and I feel like when I met my husband, he had a bar of soap and that was it, working in beauty. I would see him kind of be like interested and trying creams and doing this. However, that said, you know, you are right. There were very few lines that I felt, not that he couldn't use my products, but that also he felt like weren't so perfumey or didn't, you know, feel like he was putting like a primer on his face. Like they want different things.

"Yeah, so I started my career in Procter & Gamble, which is a lot of people would think of it as like detergent, tide, bounty, whatever. So I did actually start my career in laundry. Oh, love that. But P &G is a family company. They own all the consumer brands, like from food, coffee, laundry, to even they used to have beauty back in the day. They used to have Olay. So that was one of the big- Yeah, because I was gonna say P &G does have a wide variety of brands, yeah. Later, obviously, like when I left, they had sold that division, but that's where I got my first taste of beauty and consumer products. So I built a really good foundation. At one point, I was like, all right, you know what? I love P &G. Ohio's not cutting it. I wanna go to New York, move to a big city and kind of do something that I can kind of relate to with the products. So that's when I moved to L'Oreal. And L'Oreal, a lot of people also don't know, between L'Oreal and Estee Lauder, I think they own about 80% of all the beauty brands. So, yeah. And I mean, okay, so the L'Oreal, I was only in the L'Oreal offices a few times, but like for people who haven't, it's like Barbie's dream house elevated. Oh my God, it's amazing. I think that was, looking back, was my favorite, favorite career experience. I think it just picked me up, taught me how to live in New York City, taught me everything I know today about beauty. So just for reference, and I think that it will connect the dots of why I am here and how I got here was because L'Oreal owns everything from Armani Beauty, Ralph Lauren, Kiehl's, SkinCeuticals, Redken. I'm like, I can't even think of all the brands top of my head right now, but they own anything from like all of beauty, body, hair, to makeup, fragrances, all of it. So that's when I was like, wow, beauty's just not like moisturizers, it's everything. And then I got to work at Chanel after being at L'Oreal for a few years, which was obviously every girl's dream. And Chanel was a great experience, but of course it's high-end beauty, their products are curated slightly differently than how L'Oreal and Estee Lauder's of the world do, but very similar as well. And then I moved to Estee Lauder. So I was mostly on color cosmetics, bought companies with them, expanded them, scaled them. That was also a very, very fun experience. And then most recently from a corporate standpoint, I was at kind of like a family fund. So they built celebrity beauty brands in-house. And I was part of Cindy Crawford's line. I built J.Lo Beauty from scratch, Ellen DeGeneres. So it touched a lot of companies, about eight to 15 brands I had at one point. So the job was to just scale them, build them from scratch. And then I was like, all right, you know what? I love this, love working with celebs, it's great. But I think I've learned a lot and it's time to do something of my own. So I was just- Wait, before you get into that, because you are plowing through this and I've got so, so many questions for you. Okay, so you talk about the differences. Let's go back to your time at Chanel. How did that differ from working at L'Oreal? Yeah, so Chanel, I think from like a outsider standpoint, which I also had the vision of like, oh my God, it's gonna be such a high fashion runway, models, like all of that. It's a little bit different because Chanel's offices, their head offices and friends, they kind of control all, the fashion house kind of decides everything from fashion to beauty. It all has to kind of marry up. So to me, it wasn't like a glamorous experience. It was super different, fun. It's like, you know, they have very scheduled kind of launches planned ahead of the time, which also it's kind of decided by France. They have the final say. L'Oreal on the contrary, they have kind of like decision-making power in the US. It's one of the largest markets globally. So those things kind of vary. When you have the decision-making power in-house in your current geography, you tend to like touch a lot more than Chanel, which is fantastic, but it's also very high-end, very controlled by the fashion house. And it's a private company. So those things actually really differ in experience and how much you can touch and how much you can expand and experiment also differs. From like how much you can absorb with an experience standpoint, it's very different. Now, listen, I gotta ask you, because I'm sure every person listening is like, let's talk about some of those perks of Chanel. I mean, did you have access? Did you have access to discounts on the bags? Yeah, they were, I mean, you know, it's like every girl that wants to work at Chanel, the perks are phenomenal. I have collected so many bags and shoes and beauty products. I still haven't, I think, repurchased my Chanel makeup since because I've collected so much. So I'll drop the number. You get about, so as an employee, you can get anywhere from 60 to 75% off, but you only have two sales a year. So, you know, you can try to, you know, get your hands on the goods. So it's kind of like everybody just rushes into the sale. There's a line. You have a schedule of when you are scheduled to go based on your last name or whatever, the ranking system. People just rush in and they just pray and hope that by the time I get in, there's inventory left. But even if a bag has been like five seasons old, I'm still gonna buy it at the price point. For sure. I mean, you know, Chanel is something that appreciates. Is it 30% twice a year? Don't they go up? Or is it 30% once a year at the back? Twice a year. I think they increase it. I think over the COVID years, they kind of limited it. So the way luxury works, and I think this is the same model that Louis Vuitton followed as well, Hermes, I mean, they're still doing that. So what happened at one point, it was becoming more and more accessible, right? But social media, like now people are dropping sales. Like this is what's happening in the Paris store. Like it's so connected and people have access now. So what happened was that people were getting access to these bags that were becoming very generic in music videos. And then the influencers, they all carry a bag. That's, you know, Chanel classic, vintage, whatever. So at some point, the glamor of a luxury prestige product was kind of going down, right? So the prices were kind of affordable because people were putting their entire paychecks into getting these bags. So what brands do typically, they do price increases to make the brand kind of like untouchable and affordable. So still have that piece of like, oh my God, scarcity. Wow, I want it because nobody has it. So that works really well in luxury. So price increases help with that. Then they also curb the amount of products or bags that they created every year. So if it's a distribution, you get X amount of bags in one store. When it's out, it's out. Then you have to go find a reseller. So this is what- I remember I was getting the black caviar wallet on a chain that is like the quilted. It was impossible to find. I found it in a store that had called me from Florida. They shipped it to New York. And when I went into New York to pick it up, the woman was like, look, I wanna show you this. Obviously you purchased it. But if I open this bag here, my regular clients are going to freak out because they're gonna be like, why didn't you get this for me? And I was just like, I don't care, give it to me. Give it to me, I will run out of the store. Don't worry, I know it's gonna be perfect. But yeah, there is such, you know, and I just feel like Schnell's that classic. What? I would like to do a price comparison. What year was that? Gosh, probably, I had already met my husband. So probably like 2015.

A highlight from GEN C: Dressing the Digital World With Derek Edwards, Nick Gonzalez and Megan Kaspar
"Gen C is the generation of the new Internet. In Gen C, the C stands for crypto, but it also stands for creators, the connected consumer and collectibles, both digital and physical with on -chain provenance. It stands for culture and characters, the ones we play in games and the companion ones that AI is building alongside us. It stands for community and digital citizenship and the new set of transparent and trustless tools being built to govern them. These are the people who were raised on a different philosophy on how they look at money, how they look at identity, how they look at privacy and how they look at the hybrid, digital and physical spaces being built all around us. And finally, how they reimagine their relationships with the communities and companies they interact with. We focus on how brands large and small are building for these audiences. Welcome to Gen C. Welcome, everyone, to the special episode of Gen C. We're about halfway through Fashion Week here in New York City. So we thought for this week, we would feature a special conversation that was had at Consensus this year called Dressing the Digital World, Cutting Edge or Out of Fashion, and features a group of people who are really some of the smartest minds in the idea of digital fashion. It has Derek Edwards from Collab in Currency, one of the sort of big brains who talks about the idea of ownership of digital assets and where we're going with trust -minimized databases and on -chain recording of transactions. We have Megan Casper, who's one of the leading voices in digital fashion, also a founding member of Red Dow. And we also have Nick Gonzalez, the co -founder of UNXD. UNXD and their team help bring large brands into the digital space. Folks like Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino and a bunch of others, really an amazing group of technologists. A couple of notes. This was recorded live at Consensus this year. It is in front of a audience, so you might hear a little bit of room noise from the conversation. In addition, there is a video component that is playing behind them, just some of the assets that they're talking about. Not necessary to enjoy the conversation, but if you want to, we will have the link to the session in the show notes. So if you want to watch it instead of listen to it, all you have to do is register for a Coindesk account and that should give you access to the video. But we just thought, given it's Fashion Week, we are ready to bring you an amazing conversation all about digital fashion. Avery and I will be back next week with some amazing guests and we have a really amazing lineup of guests coming over the next bunch of weeks, which we're excited to share with you. So with that, I hope you enjoy this conversation around digital fashion from Consensus 2023. Welcome. Thank you guys for joining me. So topic today is dressing the digital world, cutting edge or out of fashion. I think we are all probably on the cutting edge side of it, but let's just set the stage. Let's introduce yourself and we'll go from my side over this way. All right, Derek, you go first. No, you're ready. I say who you are, how you fit into this world, and a little bit about what your background is. Who wants to go? Megan's got this. Megan. Hi everyone. Thank you for coming today. I'm Megan Casper. I am one of the founding members along with Derek of RedDow, which is the world's first digital fashion focused Dow. And we invest in and incubate and purchase digital fashion items and platforms to help proliferate the narrative around the digital fashion opportunities. Hey everyone, I'm Nick Gonzalez. I'm a co -founder of UNXD and we're writing the next chapter on luxury in the Web3 space. We are probably most well known for a partnership with Dolce & Gabbana, creating the first couture collection on chain, Collezzione Genesee, of which RedDow was a buyer and participant. And most recently, we're bringing Dolce & Gabbana from kind of the Web3 space into the Web3 gaming space with the launch of Masana .xyz coming up this year, and just announced a partnership with Valentino, one of the hottest Italian fashion brands out there. My name is Derek Edwards. I'm a managing partner at Collab Currency. We're an early stage Web3 investment group. We invest in some of the leading consumer Web3 projects at the seed stage. So some of my favorite products, things like Artblocks and Super Rare and Gallery, and also a co -founding member of Tribute Dow, which is focused on fashion and digital fashion and Web3. And then related to digital fashion, early stage investor and some of the products that are helping build out this industry. So things like IYK and 90CC and Shibuya Brand and Ready Player Me and things like this. So great panel here. Very excited for the combo. Awesome. And so I want to set the stage because you were all involved in that sort of iconic doge crown sale. And that was historic. I think it was over 400 ETH you bought for. And that was 2021, real high peak. And how has things changed since that moment for you? How are things evolved? We're two years from that. Obviously, the sales of that magnitude aren't happening right now. But, you know, do you think we're going to return to that? Where have we gone? And whoever wants to start up on that. Do you want to provide context on what it was? Yeah. So the doge crown is more than just, I guess, a meme. It was an actual physical item that was part of the Collecioni Genesee Drop that was based around Altamota 2021. It's a really fantastic crown. I think if we have a photo of it, that's probably going to come up. Both a physical and digital item. And this was really when we were creating something with Dolce & Gabbana, we really wanted to make something that started at the pinnacle of what fashion was for the brand. So we started with Altamota. So with the couture collection that they did. And this was a really beautiful piece inspired by the city of Venice and the doge palace that's there. And it had this very nice crossover with doge and doge coin. So it was a little bit of a wink and a nod, but was really exciting to collectors of both fashion and the Web3 space. And that's, I think, where we saw when physical and digital were combining. That intersection that's happening technically also happened in the cultural space as well, as we saw so many people in Web3 looking for the next phase of what was happening once you could tokenize items. Yeah. And as a member of Red Dow, we were most excited. This was our inaugural purchase. So we purchased the crown and the auction and also two of the jackets that were just shown. The jackets are purely digital. And this is the first time in history that a high end luxury fashion brand launched any initiatives in Web3. So that was really our moment entering into Web3 from the luxury standpoint. And at Red, we were really excited about that purchase. I know I was going to say like from an investment point of view, sort of like, you know, what was yours? Yeah, so I'll just say like since 2021, which is, I think, the question you teed up, I would say behaviorally, I think I continue to see the same things that I was looking for in 2023 that I was in 2021. I mean, this idea of digital objects having value, I think is something that has been around for decades. So I was an early player in some of these Internet economies, things like World of Warcraft, things like Diablo 2. And there were markets that would form for digital objects, whether they were armor or swords or skins. And these would be priced off market. But these digital objects didn't live on a trust -minimized database like a blockchain. They lived on a server, a private database. And over decades, we've continued to see behaviorally the same things happen. So just listen to this awesome talk right before this. There's Spencer from Yuga who referenced Counter -Strike skins, which continue to sell tens of millions of dollars worth of skins every single quarter. And these are not objects that live on a blockchain. These are objects that live on a private database. But there's still a demand and a growing demand by younger audiences to want to flex, to want to own, to want to curate their identity in these digital spaces. And so things like this drop and things like a lot of the images that you'll see up here is really just sliding into this grand trend line of younger audiences wanting to participate meaningfully inside of these digital economies in ways that help shape and inform their identity. And so I have seen nothing over the last two years than an acceleration towards these behaviors and couldn't be more excited about the things that are being worked on to optimize around this. I think it's a really interesting point you made around the Counter -Strike from the last thing. And we've seen that there's been black markets for skins, but they're not on chain. And this is a way to have these verifiable, legitimate things. And I think that's one of the things that I think is interesting about bringing Web3 to fashion is that ability to have providence. So is that something that drew Dolce & Gabbana to the project? 100%. I think it's a question that comes up with every fashion brand, particularly a luxury brand that we work with. If you're creating an item that is so exclusive and so valuable, if it's a one -of -one in real life, now it can be a one -of -one digitally as well. And that providence is stored on the blockchain. So now, Red Dow and the other buyers of Cholezion and Genesee have that piece forever for as long as Ethereum is operating. I hope it does. I'm not worried about Ethereum. Yeah. And then now that's expanding even further, more and more into the digital space. So I think if 2021 was about couture for us, 2022 was about ready -to -wear, and then now in 2023 is really about expanding into that gaming realm, that digital kind of looking towards what's going on in the digital space and helping enhance those experiences. I think we always say that people spend their money where they spend their time, and people are spending more and more time on gaming than they ever had before. You're looking at a quarter of a trillion dollar industry that has about 50 billion in cosmetics every year. It's going to be relevant, just like emerging markets were relevant to fashion brands as buyers coming out of China, coming out of all around the world. The same thing is going to happen in gaming. People are going to want to enhance their experience of those games. They're going to want to connect to those communities. And fashion is part of that. Great. And what do you say to sort of the skeptics of the people who are sort of saying like, well, that seems like a lot of money to spend on something that I can't physically hold. And we'll come back to the physical part of it. Like there are the connected pieces. No, Megan, go for it. I'll pick up. Megan. Well, you know, if you look at the amount of people in the world that are, we're all netizens basically. There's over 4 billion people using social media. And, you know, I think social media and gaming are going to merge into this social reality. And as we get to device disruption from our smartphones handheld, some near eye wearable, or even a brain computer interface chip, I think that, you know, the dematerialization of physical reality that's happening will be incremental over the next 10 or 15 years. So the generations that say, you know, digital is not as important as the physical, this really doesn't speak to them. This is more for the younger generations. And I feel like as millennials, we're sort of the bridge between, you know, the old paradigm and this new paradigm and the wave of dematerialization. Yeah, brilliant. The only other thing I would add is we're heading on a one way train right now. And it's like the convergence of multiple trend lines. It's the fact that a younger demographic wants to curate their identity in digital spaces more than they want to curate it in physical spaces. And those represent like this generation's next consumers for these objects. The second is the hardware constraints are now being relaxed, such that more immersive experiences around how you shape your identity can be enjoyed by larger groups of people. And as Megan said, we're just spending more of our time in these digital environments than we ever have. I mean, I've been saying this for years, but we've already been in a metaverse light. We are on Zoom calls all day. We're on Twitter. We're on Facebook taking photos of our physical self so we can curate our digital identity. We're already doing behaviorally the things that an immersive metaverse like environment should look like. It's just all built on private databases and it's all being patched together by bad technology. But the truth is blockchains are just a settlement layer for digital ownership. All of the information that we're using on these private databases will one day live on trust minimized databases for the benefits that we all know. There's interoperability, there's composability, there's price discovery. And these trend lines are all converging very quickly. And over time, I think it'll be shocking when folks start realizing a non -trivial amount of the world's GDP is going to run on blockchains and it's going to be digital objects and digital value. Yeah. And that really brings up something Megan, I know you've posed in virtual fashion. Can you speak a little bit about where does that come from and how do you see that growing? Well, it's still very early, but one of our portfolio companies, Dress X, they use 15 different use cases for digital fashion, which is the most out of any digital fashion company that exists. And just to sort of show their capabilities, I was the first human to wear a digital fashion NFT on live television in 2021. And then I was also the first human to be featured on the cover of a magazine wearing high -end luxury fashion. So Fendi let us superimpose digital clothing onto the photos of me. And those are just two ways that someone can use digital fashion, but people are valuing their digital identities more than their physical. And as we begin to value our digital more and more, we'll really care about the way that it looks and how we're able to show our ownership of items. Because today, the outfit that I'm wearing, the designer has no idea where I'm wearing it, who's seeing it, where it's being posted. But all of that post -sale consumer data and analytics can be now collected, put on chain, and then hopefully the wearer can be compensated. So there is definitely a lot of business models and new business model disruption that will come out of all of these use cases. Yeah, I think that really touches on also something I think we touched on when we chatted before, that idea that you start to build a community. And how is that something into all of what you're working on, but that you do get to know, not just someone who walks in the store or hands over a credit card, but you actually start to build a relationship with these customers. I mean, how does that fit in to sort of, you know, Nick? Yeah, I mean, I can take that first. So I mean, I think that this is a new experience, particularly for luxury brands. They know that they missed kind of e -commerce going online. They knew that going into Web 2 was a new experience for them, which was kind of the user could go from purchasing your products online to commenting on what you're posting online. And then now it's a whole new level of interaction that's happening through Web 3. So we have a Discord server that we're managing. That's tying into Twitter. We're doing Twitter spaces. Davide Segeri from Dolce & Gabbana was just today had the first time somebody from Dolce & Gabbana was authorized to speak on behalf of the brand in our Discord space. So it's a new experience. But the power that it's tapping into is the fact that now people are not able to just become consumers of an item and have that relationship end once they leave the store or fear that they're going to be harassed through email spam or something like that. Instead, now they're truly owners of the object that they bought digitally as well. And that creates a new relationship that can be scaled through software. So you can kind of create this digital intimacy, I think, that brands have been so good doing in the real world when you visit a boutique. Now that kind of ownership can be proof of ownership so that now when they're online, I can identify somebody like Megan who's living in the future. It's seriously like you hopped in a time machine and this is what everybody's going to be like in the next five to 10 years. And we can identify all of our holders and then help give them new items or help reward the people who are the biggest collectors or promoters of the brand themselves. And this is all evolving. It's not just going to necessarily be about one thing, but it's going to be about all these things that are leveraged through the power of digital ownership. I'll anchor this to a real world example, which is 90cc. It's the hat I'm wearing right now. And inside of this hat, there's a little nine right here. There's a little NFC chip in here powered by IYK, which is a software resolver layer for NFC chips to interact between the physical and this blockchain -based database. Once you actually have that tie between a digital asset that lives on a blockchain and a physical that can be linked to it, you can start to create very interesting experiences that could be pushed to this end user. There's a proof, there's a provenance that exists now. There's also a marketplace that can form on top of these primitives such that anyone can create a module through IYK to be able to push new experiences with the creator's intent, like a game. And that game could have score, and that score could have a leaderboard. And you can now start to see how brands can communicate with their end users post -purchase in a way that just wasn't previously possible because we now have this provenance that exists on this permanent, immutable, trust -minimized global database that we've never had access to before. And that's a very powerful primitive. 90cc is really just starting to scratch the surface of what they can do there. But there's all sorts of experiences, value -add, communication that can now exist between creator and owner of a physical object in a way that just didn't exist before. And I think that's some of the tie that I think is really exciting here over the next couple of years. The chips, are they washable? Like if you have a new shirt, are you going to ruin it when you throw in the drive? I've never washed this shirt. I'm going to wear it forever. No, they are washable, retains perfect usage. So they're pretty durable. Great. But yeah, I think that that sort of interaction in real life sort of connects these communities. And back in the 2021, again, there were the ape fest. Do you see that as kind of like gatherings by brand, sort of something that's going to return? I think it's sort of faded away a bit, but do you think that's going to rise back up? I think that wallet adoption, that's one of the biggest trends that I'm watching. And I think that it's going to take more people using wallets and being able to interact with the wallet in an easy, streamlined, simple way. Right now you have like rainbow and metamask and a few others, and they're just the barrier to entry is not super streamlined and easy for consumers. And when I think about web three versus web two, we have pretty streamlined consumer capabilities when it comes to buying things online. And I think that web three will just make it much easier. So instead of logging in and typing in all of your address, your credit card payment, I think that it'll just streamline that connect wallet and then immediately take out whatever the payment is. Hopefully your address will be saved on there. And it'll be a one click purchase and streamline. And then everything you own, like the receipts of what you own are now showing in your wallet. And you can share that from a standpoint of digital flexing or just have that for different ways of optimizing ownership and taking leverage against things that you own. So imagine 30 to 40 percent of the average American's closet goes unworn. Most people don't even know what they have. That's why they're continually shopping all the time and buying new things. Well, if you have everything in one place, you can see it and then you actually know the value of your closet and the value of your assets and you can take leverage against them. This gets pretty interesting. I actually love that. My husband actually works for StickFix, which is sort of like, you know, curating things, but they don't know what you have in your closet. And that was something we've talked about in that idea that you could let people sort of help you out curating. Like, do you think that's something that would come in? So, you know, multiple brands working together to say, like, all right, everyone who wants to be in will help you create outfits, will suggest things. Do you think that's something that's possible? I mean, just came to me, but I think that's super interesting. I think A .I. will have a huge play in that. You know, the Web 2 apps like Stylebook that catalog your clothing. I think that we'll have another application and layer of A .I. in there. So, A .I. and blockchain, I think, are huge components of what we're gonna experience with Web 3 consumerism. Yeah, I totally agree. The only other thing I would add there is we're now taking these physical objects that have helped shape identity and we're creating these digital representations of them in a very inexpensive way. When you start putting what has previously been physical into a digital environment that's programmable, that actually demonstrates provenance, that can be read by anyone on a global public ledger, all of these things are gonna mix and match. These ingredients are very powerful. And new types of products and new types of services are gonna get created, many of which that leverage models and LMs to things that we can't even dream up today. But, like, the fact that we're now digitizing the world onto this public database is an unlock that I think people don't quite recognize yet. It's gonna increase the types of products, the types of services, the terms of these markets in ways that just aren't really conceivable right now. I could just actually add one thing to that. Getting back to the point about, I think I've been talking about the connection between the brand and the community, what's also within the community themselves. Now that people can identify who is a holder of a piece of Dolce & Gabbana, the DG family boxes or any of the pieces from Riel de Parallella, they can start connecting with each other. And to the point around A .I., we just had this year with Metaverse Fashion Week, we had a fashion competition where actually people from the communities were designing pieces that could then be featured as part of the Dolce & Gabbana collection there. And one of the members of our community actually used A .I. to help create, you know, he's not a designer per se in the traditional sense, but he has enough of a way around computers and enough taste that he went and used A .I. to actually generate an outfit that was good enough to be selected as one of the finalists as part of that. So it's already here, I guess is the key. It's just not evenly distributed, I guess, as I was saying. No, I think that's really interesting, especially because I think, you know, you think of luxury fashions as highly controlling of their brand image and their IP and that, you know, Web3's ESOS is decentralized. So the idea that we're starting to allow people who are proven sort of brand ambassadors or brand fans participate in the ecosystem is really interesting. Do you think we'll see more of that? Do you think there'll be some kind of, you know, real tension points? Like, I think Dolce & Gabbana is, you know, at the forefront of Valentino coming on board. Nike, you know, coming in, there's a lot of brands who are sort of like welcoming sort of that thing. You know, they had a competition that curating Instagram so they could get people in. But I'm sure there will be brands that are sort of like, you know, we're Chanel. I don't know Chanel if they're into it or not, but and we don't want that. And do you think that is against the Web3 ESOS? Like, how do we decide that deal? I think it's a spectrum. I think it's something that brands will ring fence in the way that they're comfortable with. Sometimes people interject into social media and don't want comments. So they, you know, turn those off on the different platforms, but then they lose out on all these other great interactions. Dolce & Gabbana has been very forward thinking and as a consequence, they reap the rewards of that. So I think it's going to come down to the brand themselves, I think, as you're correctly hinting there between Chanel and others. I just wanted to add, I think it's important for people to recognize the level of success that has happened with UNXD, bringing in Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino. So if you look at luxury fashion specifically and artifacts, we would not put this in the category. But aside from artifacts, UNXD has had the most amount of revenue from a Web3 initiative with a luxury fashion brand. So I think that that's a pretty interesting data point. And I think that we're going to continue to see more and more brands enter the space as the use cases expand beyond just speculative asset investing and beyond just gaming. Yeah. And I'll add one thing, which is I think luxury fashion is a category that will be immense and will be valuable. And these are pioneers of what's happening in that space right now. But I will also say that fashion isn't just luxury. Right. And I wouldn't call myself a luxurious person. I'm wearing chucks right now. But this was all a curated choice when I woke up this morning to wear this CyberRucker shirt and these jeans and these shoes. And that choice is a choice of fashion. In the same way that me using a CryptoPunk on my profile photo with a MeVit behind it and a ChromieSquiggle flying behind me is a choice to curate and present my digital self. And there's going to be lots of those choices and lots of brands are going to start interacting with Web3 in a way that is what I believe to be fashion, even if it doesn't fit into the category of luxury fashion. And so I think this technology is very democratic. It's very open. It's very permissionless. But I think the thing that I want to convey is just a slight reframing is, you know, we all woke up this morning and made decisions to curate our identities and ourselves. And this technology will allow us to do that, curate ourselves in a digital way to a global audience. And those decisions, by their very nature, are fashion decisions and identity decisions. And this is a technology that will expand to all brands. I love that. And I think that's very true. And it sort of speaks to the democratization, but you know, it does allow people to sort of curate it on a much broader spectrum than just, you know, high end luxury fashion. I know that is the title here, but I do think fashion is broader than that one aspect. And do you think, and we talked a little bit about this, that there is sort of the ability, I know that, you know, I told you about ready to wear, but they're not quite like, you know, consumer mass market. But do you think that this in the future would open up more opportunities for aspirational people? Like we talked before, I copied a Dolce & Gabbana gown for my prom dress because I couldn't afford the real one. I had the dressmaker make it. But, you know, I would have loved to have been able to buy in now's today's world, you know, a digital version of the real dress to actually present, even if I can't afford the physical dress. And sort of where do you think we are going to fall on that sort of spectrum? I mean, we're seeing not just luxury, but as Derek alluded to, fashion is more than just that. And Web3, digital fashion specifically, more natively is very fantastical, gamified, augmented. And, you know, you could have things flying around you or wings in aspects that the physical really restricts you and restrains you from experiencing. So it's more of an experiential product that is being created. And we're seeing a lot of brands, not just 9DCC, but Psyche, actually, Alistair Hunt is building out a whole platform for digital fashion natives to be able to expand just digitally and not so much connected to the physical. So there's, I think, a huge opportunity for digital fashion native designers. Steffi Fong is another one who's really great. So, again, as we expand and explore more of our digital identities, we'll see more and more people filling their digital closets with digital fashion. What are you most excited about? What are the things we'll think we'll see in the next year, two years that you think we really need to keep an eye on? I think this intersection between physical and digital I think is incredibly powerful. And I think the primitives have now been kind of built and the standards are getting created for some really interesting stuff, some very meaty stuff as it relates to the physical and the digital to get created. I think projects to keep an eye on are for sure 9DCC, what G -Money is doing, IYK, Tribute -Brand .com is coming out with a very compelling drop at that intersection over in the next couple of weeks. So make sure to follow along there. And then just follow anything these two are doing. They're the gurus. I think the thing I'm most excited about is the next evolution of what we're doing with Dolce & Gabbana right now. And, of course, Valentino coming up towards the end of the year. That's Masana .xyz. And that's really a movement from what we're doing with Couture to Ready to Wear and then now into the web through gaming and adding a digital identity to each of the holders in our community. And that's something I think I'm really excited by. It's a cultural movement, not just a technological one. And it's where we're going to help bring more storytelling, I think, to Dolce & Gabbana and more interactivity in the digital space than people have ever seen before. Well, for me, as an investor in the blockchain space for over the last 10 years, it's most exciting to see wallets and wallets that have easy UI and UX come to bring more people in. And I think that the use case of digital fashion will help proliferate the adoption of Web3 and blockchain. I'll add one last thing. I swear I promised the last thing, which is I think a big, big tailwind over the next 12, 18 months is gaming and really great Web3 games getting created. And some of the identity things that I discussed previously being a core part of what makes Web3 ownership and Web3 assets powerful and a very powerful value prop. And I think we're at the point now where some of these digital fashion, the bridge to understanding this stuff is going to come through some of these immersive experiences that look like games and Web3 games. Yeah, I completely agree. Well, thank you all so much for joining me. Thank you.
"Redundancy Changed Everything": How Deirdre McGinn Transformed Her Life
"Haven't gone through redundancy myself, but I have worked with people who've spoke of it. And I really heard from them, like the profound impact it can have on people's confidence. And I know you, like, that's your forte in terms of your coaching is your confidence coaching, and you've sort of described your own journey with confidence as a bit of a roller coaster. How, how did that redundancy kind of influence your confidence when you say did decide to go into coaching and set up your own business? Redundancy changed everything. When you work in the world that I worked in, which was the tech world, you get paid a lot of money. And it's very hard sometimes to extract yourself away from the lifestyle that you create around that, how they build success within those organizations. So the titles, the opportunities to travel, the competitions that you can win to go off to all these beautiful places, the fact that they give you lots of shares, and they tie you into the organization, the goals and handcuffs. So and my lifestyle was built around that. So that's what success looked like. For me, it was very external. It like there's only so many bloody Prada handbags you can have or Chanel handbags you can have right. So but that's what success looked like when I was coming into work with my Prada or I used to, I used to take pride. This struck me the other day, I used to take pride in having going to a yoga class at seven o 'clock in the morning, then getting my hair done, and potentially my nails done and still being working on clock. That's nearly a bloody work done before you go into it. And I took pride that I could do all of these things. And I was this type of woman that would, you know, be able to do her yoga class and look a certain look the part going into her office and then be there till eight o 'clock night, and then go home exhausted. Yeah, absolutely. With no life, no life in between any of that. I was talking to someone about this yesterday. And I'm saying like, you have to like if you're not happy in those environments, while that salary is very high, you end up spending like a huge proportion of it to try feel some happiness or get some joy. So whether that's the Prada handbags, or you know, like the really expensive holidays, or you know, having to have like the newest car or whatever it is, and I wonder, like, are you really better off? Well, so my my journey of discovery and all of this is that those those things that I thought were important to me, they're not important, right? And it's only it's only since I've come out of this corporate world, that I've been able to create capacity for myself to figure out what really was important. Like I was getting to a place where, you know, I had no partner, I had this lovely house in the middle of Dublin, I had the Chanel handbags and the Prada handbags and the clothes and the makeup and all those. I was so unhappy. There was no happiness in my life. And there was a huge lack of self awareness around who and what would bring happiness into my life. So it was only when I left this world that I was able to create capacity for myself. And I did I did a huge amount of work on myself in the year between leaving. It had started before I left LinkedIn, but I, you know, I went to different healers, I did a lot of spiritual work, I read a lot of books that I would never have dreamt of reading, because I didn't have the time to read them or the interest, listened to podcasts, and connected with with other like minded people that were going through similar journeys. So all of this has took me to a place of more self awareness. I don't think you're ever fully self aware. But I think I'm a hell of a lot better than I was. And what I recognize is with all this stuff, like it all went into boxes, when I when I moved out of my lovely house, it all went into boxes, and it was in boxes for two years. So how much did you really need it then? I didn't need it at all. Because I, you know, the year of COVID, I moved, I moved to Spain, I moved out of my house and rented it. So I had to, I had to downsize everything. And, and brought very little with me to Spain when I lived there. So you get very used to very little possessions. I don't need possessions anymore. I still love clothes, don't get me wrong. Yeah. And I still love me pieces. But I don't need it. I love it. I love these things because I love them. Not that they're, that they give me that they boost my confidence, or they give me a sense of self worth. I have what I have now because I love those things. My life has changed dramatically, dramatically in the last three years. So yeah, so it's, it's been a very interesting journey for me.
When It Comes to Makeup, Bethenny Frankel Is "Keeping It Real"
"Also mentioned this morning that you have become like more well known in a sense from these ticktocks, these makeup reviews, these beauty product reviews. And when you were on the housewives and I could really see that. I'm going to ramble just for a second, because I do really feel like you validated a group of women that maybe felt invalidated by their choices. Like I bought Maybelline and Revlon because that's what I saw my mom use. And I couldn't afford your Giorgio Armani foundation or like the Chanel lipstick. And, you know, makeup is a huge part of like what your identity to be a woman. Right. That's what we wear. It's for the job interview that we want or when we're interviewing like our heroes, right, like on our podcast. So but from from your standpoint, I want to know why. Why what was the start? Like, why did you start with makeup? I didn't start. I just I didn't even mean to start. I just was playing around. But what you said, it's part of our identity. The thing is, it's really part of our insecurity. The to marketing us. Our insecurity makes us feel like if we buy the more expensive thing, that it's going to work better, not because. We're because we think it's actually better and it's not. So we actually think that that's how I'm going to look better. And I had Christopher Buckle do my makeup. And today he said that they're preying on insecurities. It's all just paint. So you can want the nice packaging. You can buy into all of that. But we are definitely being lied to. We are being marketed to. And I've normalized places like the dollar store and the drugstore because I didn't know. So I was walking in completely like everybody else. Just I have expensive makeup. I have La Prairie. I have Armani. I probably have a cup. I had a couple of Maybelline great lashes because that's what I buy at the drugstore. And I don't like spending money on makeup because I don't really wear it. And once I was watching TikTok for months, I was feeling like insecure. I don't have anything. I don't know anything. I don't look like them. I didn't consider the filters. I didn't know they were all filter and I didn't know they were selling. So I started comparing and I couldn't get over the fact that CoverGirl was the same thing on my face as the $200 stuff. And today, Christopher Buckle, who literally does Christmas's makeup, he does Mariah Carey's makeup, Blake Lively, Kate Chastain, Met Gala. He said to me, I he was shocked. He can't believe it. And he's he's I said, let me tell you, would you do me for the Met Gala? Would you do it if I had the? He goes, I actually wouldn't have yesterday. Today I would commit to

"Who is. Like I want to meet the 19 year old TikTok. Maybe even not TikTok famous, but like cool by whatever today's cool standards are. As Times Square in New York City is still cool, like they hang out there and they're wearing Chanel number 5 because it's so old. It's new. I don't know. But there's got to be somebody out there who is embracing it in that way. Maybe yeah, maybe. So yeah, so that is our that is our product recall on Chanel number 5. I hope you learned a lot. I did. I mean, one of my favorite Chanel scandals happened on TikTok where some TikToker did their advent calendar and it was like 800 something dollars and it had like the most measly. Yes, I remember this. They opened one of the little totally compartments and it was just a sticker. Yes. The absurdity. I do think that there is a really cool kind of cultural critique happening with the younger generation of not just capitalism, but luxury marketing and how scammy it can be. Yeah. That being said, this made me want perfume. Well, if you end up wearing Chanel number 5, let me know. I think I'm gonna pass. I don't still feel like the fact that they haven't the companies never really addressed the fact that Coco Chanel was at the very least a Nazi sympathizer is fucking not okay. Like that's seems like it seems like the time for that to happen was decades ago. Yeah. Kate, I'm with you, but you know, they're not alone in terms of that's true Dory. They are not alone and I think I need to dig into that a little bit more. And that's on me to do my own learning there. Thank you for this journey. I learned a lot. Oh, I'm glad. All right, bye everyone.

"chanel" Discussed on Fat Mascara
"Here it is. Okay, over at Chanel. They're not just making fashion. They're making skin. I'm sorry. They're researchers. It sounded so creepy the way I just said that. I'm so sorry. I like wait a second. They're researchers. Way to un chic Chanel. No, it's their high-tech skin care brand on top of all the other stuff they do. Their researchers and partnership with lab skin creations have successfully used 3D bioprinting to make human skin, which has happened before. We've heard about this, but that on which a dark spot can appear. So now they'll be able to test pigment brightening ingredients, spot feeding ingredients, not on humans yet, but on this bioprinted skin matter because as we all know, like spots are a big concern for a lot of people. In fact, according to as they were talking about this and saying they now have the ability to do this in conjunction with lab skin creations, they revealed some research that demonstrated, if you look at two faces, we've heard research like this before, but I'm curious what you think, Jess. You look at two faces. They're exactly the same. One of them has some dark spots. Just some dark spots on the cheeks. How much older would that face be rated on average? How much older if you have spot 20 years? Oh, you think 20 years? No more wrinkles, no nothing, just the spots makes it look 20 years older. Wow, okay. Was that a step forward? Okay. I'm talking about it. But yeah, so when you have spots, it makes you appear for about four years older than you actually. I take a swing. I took a spring. Well, damn, then you better use the Chanel products 'cause they're gonna be coming out with with thanks to this new technology, because they'll help fade spots and things. Now, I just think it's cool that the last we have to test on animals or without the cost of testing on a huge human consumer perception study, busy analysis, all of that. They'll be able to buy up a bunch of skin with spots and test different ingredients on it to see which ones perform the best. So I'm excited to see if that means there's going to be some new spot faders over at Chanel or elsewhere because that company obviously can do that kind of bioprinting for other companies as well. And that is your science corner and that is your news. Yay.
"chanel" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Chanel Bassett. Check this out. I think the venture industry is now ironically quite mature. And these are significant institutions with deep, deep pockets of liquidity and capital. So one off events, I think, while they certainly be painful for each of the VCs, I think there's so much more diversified by definition, given their portfolios that they're going to be able to withstand. And in many respects, look at the reset and valuations, particularly in the private markets, as that starts to come into effect next year to deploy fresh capital. When they look in the private markets, are they changing the way they invest? Are they saying maybe a little less crypto right now and a little bit more electric cars or whatever else it is that they're investing in? Just in any event in the investing world at the moment and particularly on the institutional, there's naturally when we're in cycles such as the market now that has moved away from more speculative assets and a move towards more path to profitability. You indulge me with this a couple more questions on crypto and then we can move on. I appreciate your not a crypto guy that you're a tech guy. I appreciate that. But we've all been around for a bit. Is this remind you of MF? Does it remind you of Lehman? Does something like this when you hear a headline that basically customers money was being led to a hedge fund? Like what do you think about that? What it reminds me of right now is that the digital asset classes and emerging class. That's still pretty nascent. And there's a lack of institutional depth of liquidity. And we're an environment right now in rising interest rates and a significant amount of leverage in the system. And so that can lead to situations such as the one that we've seen unfold. At the same time, it reminds me of the fact that whenever you're at the depths of cycles, that's when innovation comes to the fore. So I do believe that we'll continue to see evolution. We'll continue to see innovation around digital and it needs to be done so parry pass you to regulatory evolution and change and greater transparency in the market. Talking about the fed rates and what that winds up meaning for where the bubbles are, where the over leverage is, where else is it? Where else is the leverage? Yeah, that we need to be worried about is the fed keeps hiking. I think leverage is manageable. If you look at bank balance sheets right now and you look at acquisition finance debt, there's about $50 billion that we would estimate across the street. And I think it would the CPI number, which is constructive and shows hopefully that the interest rate policy is starting to have the right measured effect. You compare the $50 billion to the $500 billion that the banks had on their balance sheets leading into the global financial crisis. And some of the view that over the fourth quarter and the first quarter banks are actually going to start to be able to see movement in leverage finance exposures and distribution and hopefully when we get into 2023, the leverage finance market will start to ease up a little bit. And I think that will be well timed. I mean, there have been 7 Lev fin deals, public to private this year greater than $10 billion. There are only two last year and won the year before. And we think that's going to continue into next year as public market valuation to disconnected. And we actually think they'll start to also we'll see more M and a with private companies next year as sellers start to adjust and I think hopefully interest rate policy is effective that we can control inflation and then I think sellers will start to also adjust to the fact that multiple times I'm going to return to where they were necessarily 12 months ago. And we see a level of normalization both in the private markets looking to sell either publicly or through M and a. And hopefully we even start to see some IPOs come next year. Phil, Peter single Hurst over at baillie Gifford, he's the head of private markets over there. Private companies over there. He was talking about the fact that you just alluded to that next year we could see some big down rounds on the private side. House substantial adjustment do you think we're talking about? I wouldn't get so hung up necessarily around the down rounds. We'll take a longer term view. I will tell you that activity around pitching and talking to our corporate clients around potentially going public next year or indeed preparing for sell sides. That level of dialog and engagement has picked up recently. And I think that gives us a measured level of optimism for 2023 in 2024.

Yeah, conversations turned into debates. And I just want to I just want to talk about dumb dumb. Yeah, don't you? Like, every year, someone in my family goes, what do you guys, what do you guys think before? And like everyone in my core family like me and my brother, my mom, my dad just go. I just shut up. Yeah.

That's what those pajamas say to me. Let's get right to it. Huntress like, who can I buy these pajamas for? Are you gonna have a special Christmas sleepover that you can buy these for someone that they can wear them Christmas morning? I'll be in Costa Rica with my father. So you get two pairs. I gotta get two pairs, yeah. Dad and I are gonna be real cute walking down those streets of Costa Rica. Oh my God. I think it's interesting for people who are like in my culture, anal sex is a big thing. Okay. Finally, we're touching on it. I've had it. Could we do that's just like an invitation, right? It's like it just looks like, let's get let's do it. Let's do it. You know, like, this is what you like, baby. Right? Exactly. I love that you went with yeah. I've been on this show for four years and I've been so tepid to bring up anal sex. Have you day one? Day one. Day one brings me zero 20. Minute 20 minute 1.3. It's literally, we just started. Yeah. We're moving on. No one covers dentistry, though, like nightly pop so Taylor Swift fans are truly a dedicated bunch. Yeah. A girl went viral and TikTok for a defending Taylor to her dentist after he said he was not a fan. And yes, she is coming out of anesthesia. Yeah. You liked it, Dylan hall? No. Okay, God. Yeah, give me your but you don't like so much work? Not really. I can't believe I lost your performance on me. I can't help you. No. You only tell you swim. That's dedication. That is so by the way, the fact that somebody can make someone feel this way and be that way to their dentist, that is a pop star. Absolutely. Yeah. Seriously. I mean, she's gonna have to get a new dentist, right? I mean, not really. Yeah, really. I had a dentist that was his end to Taylor Swift and hated Jake Gyllenhaal as much as that girl is my dentist would be a 17 year old girl. There's no way she got her DDS legally, you know? DDS legally, I love doctor surgery. Just how quick do you get that degree 6 months? I feel like everyone has always like not real. Yeah, everyone gets their DDS. It's like you're associate's degree. You get it on TikTok. Yeah. I would love to have fans like that. You know what I mean as a stand up comedian. Nobody will ever go to their dentist and say, you know, like, I had a rodrigue. You didn't play Ida Rodriguez's latest set during surgery. I'm keeping these Gaza all day. But the other thing is he was actually, it's one thing to be like, I didn't really. He was like, not really. He was kind of serious with his responses. He didn't need to be so intense. He does not like Taylor Swift. He does not like it. Absolutely not. Yes, definitely not. I just think it's crazy that we've kind of forgotten how bad Scooter Braun was to Taylor. You know, like we've all kind of jumped on Jake Gyllenhaal, but Scooter Braun is the real bad one. How happy is Scooter Braun that this all transitioned to Jake? You'll have such a good point. Such good angle, we have not mentioned before. Scooter Brown was and he's just it's the whole purpose of this album. The album. Give us a debate denied or something. What the is happening? That's so valid. And Jake Gyllenhaal's just getting hated on 'cause he borrowed a scarf. Too long. I never gave it back. Also, who wants a scarf back? Scarfs are always a bad idea. All right, and more proof people will complain about anything. Fans are upset over a video of iced tea and coco's daughter teaching her grandma how.
Vagina Talk With Dr. Nicole Williams
"To have to ask. What made you write a book about vaginas. Why did you go there. Great question i am. of course. i'm a gynecologist. I've been unpracticed for a little over fifteen years and what i've noticed over all of this time is at my patients still kept having the same questions and the same concerns over and over and over throughout the years even though it's great for me to be able to explain it to them one on one i started thinking of my patients and we have seventeen thousand patients in the practice. If my patients have these questions what about other women are they still having these same insecurities about their anatomy that my patients are having and i thought you know with the pandemic. I had a lot of time on my hands and any major knows that when you give an english major too much time to do nothing like their brains go wild. I started thinking. I start answering some of these questions and i was gonna just write a little e book to put on my side just frequently asked vagina questions but i just kept going and going and going. I realize oh my god. I have eighty seven pages. Nobody's gonna read that unless it's like an actual book and that's just started to get it done and there. We go amazing. So what are some of those questions that people have been coming to you with over and over again in the thousands the biggest question i always get is odor. Everybody is so concerned about odor. And i explained to them for the most part. Yes your vagina is gonna have some type of owner odor considered your signature scent which is completely normal. Sometimes it's a little tangy. It might actually depend on what you're eating or drinking generally it's normal but we are bred at to believe our vaginas. You're supposed to smell like you know. Bath powder or chanel number five or you know. Some kind of special bath and body works all the time. But that's actually the opposite of what you want what you really want. If you're trying to attract a partner. I have research in my book about this is that you want your own signature. Sent to get onto your partner. Because he's gonna remember or she for that matter is gonna remember or they or is going to remember that sense especially if it's tied to pleasure is going to bond nut person to you so when i talked to my patients about their odor. Most of the time. It's normal. I secondly you want this smell. Because it's going to help with your relationship on a cellular level and thirdly we are not supposed to smell like betham body works
"chanel" Discussed on Checking In with Michelle Williams
"Should have singing in your back pocket. Yeah i feel like i mean. I think it's always the to do more than one thing. Notes records artists. some artists. Just wrap some artist just seeing. Some artists are more the performing artists. Like never about the dan. Seeing you know what i mean. I think that these days people wanna see more. People are short attention span. There's so much content on social media. So if you're not doing more than one thing somebody else's you know is better to be multi talented. I feel wow in the beginning you know we talked about how you are living life but you are prioritizing your mental health and i hope you continue to talk about that on your platform so that people can be like you know what if she's balancing ourselves if she's making sure she's centered and grounded. Because i really feel. I think if the anti-ageing practices well we don't have to be angry and bitter for a long time. Although there are things that are going to happen to us in life and anger is gonna be like a natural response. But we don't have to stay angry too long. We don't stay bitter and sad and all that stuff too long so. I'm grateful that you came to talk to us. What would you say to some aspiring artists. Out there who feel like you know. Maybe they've been putting a box. People only see them for one thing. 'cause you you are breaking out so give us something to the listeners. Who are saying. You know. What i i think i can do this too. I i think the best advice i can get to. People is to always believe in yourself no matter what other people say. I don't want to believe yourself to Sometimes you know the people on american idol or whatever you're like no you can't singer some every now and then every dollar that if you're late sometimes people believe in their selves to maybe somebody's guide them in the right direction. You know but. I believe that if you believe in yourself that no matter what something is gonna work out for you. Own that epsilon. There's always gonna be people that are going to knock you hit on you that you could do this or that better but you really have confidence and you just at the end of the day. Believe in yourself. It doesn't matter what anybody else says. You're going to still make it no matter what you know. I believe attracting positive energy in so believing in yourself and believing that you could do anything that that's going to throw so many things your way. Even if you only believe in your phone one category you might believe in yourself so much that god's at you know what that's not the thing but this is for you and he might just push that at u. f. I just believe confidence and believing in yourself attracts more positively to you. Listen i am a true believer of believing because believing does work should now. We are so happy and excited that you checked in with us today waiting for having me on so happy that you asked me yon of course. Will you come back. Yes i will all right. Ladies and gentlemen. America's sweetheart is out right now. It's amazing i love it. Ridiculousness is in like season eighty four. Yup amazing are mama. We'll talk to you soon. Have a great day darling. Bye-bye it was so good to have chanel west coast. She's checking in with us and with you all over the world and just so excited to hear her talk about her self care routine and how she implements meditation and we both can attest to the fact that we're all still growing right and how you can tell you are growing is how you respond to things that you normally would have went off about and listen. It's okay and i don't want to call them. Clapback more girl. You set them straight now. Sometimes you just want to inform people because some people literally are just walking around here ignorant to certain things so every now on them you wanna bring them into the light.

Like i can't have that wrinkle on. tv You know so. I had to get the ball. Toss in the forehead like it's pressure because i'm obviously not camera non. Stop in. there's those moments where it's very close up or whatever so i had a. I got an accident in east. Two teeth out will this. Once you've got knocked out and then this one died and so i was able to keep my teeth. Put a bond on this one with kept getting yellow. And i was like i can't be on tv like this. What am i gonna do. And the dennis was like you gotta give years you have to give nears and so i got bakti because i felt this pressure like i'm smiling and laughing all the time on camera. I can't have these two yellow teeth driving me crazy. I got my teeth done. I'm so much happier with minute. Teeth they definitely like. I think that changed. My face made it more like how bra But you know there was a lot of pressure for that and see how have as maybe she just got. Invisible line or maybe. She's got him white. That wouldn't you know area pre decent. He has aptitude team. You know got damaged or whatever accident. It was like. I just had to do it. I can't be on camera with a logo. Yellower like when she doing this girl's in smiling all day like she definitely make decent money like geez. You get her teeth. So i didn't want wanna look like i just didn't care. I feel like if i wasn't on tv. I think i probably wouldn't care as much about those things. Like i'm aware relaxed. Chill person like. I don't think i've ever cared so of all pretty confident in my skin. I think that it is being on tv. Non stop in knowing that there's going to be a billion reruns enviable Non stock that that is me that you know the normal. Listen we have literally come out the gates running with this view you are so infectious. And i'm just like getting into a get nick to it. You don't understand so happy to be doing this like me and my girl. we did. Destiny's child for like three different little talent shows and we always one. We did destiny's trial so it was like a like almost like a good luck charm for for kids should know. Bless you great now. I even told kelly. When i met her ridiculousness i was like we have so many people and i think i'm more nervous when kelly ridiculousness than you. Don't yeah. I grew performing your songs in the talent show. Like is crazy Be talking to you. Let's throw some respect on the music side view in the artistic side of you. Chanel you release your album in twenty twenty and as i was reading just doing my research it was what four or five years delayed it was like forever delayed so many reasons i was trying to like just like figure it all out. I guess you could say that. I was like you know what i'm just gonna keep moving independently and just do what i wanna do. I wouldn't call it. A delay came out when it was supposed to come out exactly exactly. It's all about timing. And i feel like it was god's timing to have have you know acting like the pandemic happened and we all use that time for what we could. I just felt it was the right time for me. Like i made a couple of songs that are on my album during the pandemic but riot the beginning of it and i feel it just being different times inspired different inspire different music. You walk us through that so was It was interesting. Like i've i've been you know lucky to rope in la. So i'm recording like pretty dose studios like sixteen and during the pandemic our wording in a little tiny a room in my house. So i took it all the way back. It was like a win reverse you know and probably made some of the most incredible. So that's that's what is all about. I think is just like is not about the the big studio or any that stuff that's about the actual song you're making and the message behind the feeling. I had so much so many billions from relationships to about things going on in the world and i just wanted to get more my story out about what i've been doing my career so i think for for music artists like i went in a lot more with the with my story and and just talking about different subject matter on this album. I didn't know you got some vocals. Thank you and sometimes there's some people that talk and you can even here in there. Even the way they speak calm. I wonder if they sing. Do they have that cool. Raspy miss a little bit in their singing tone. And you do yeah. Listen yes you can rack okay. I'm gonna just say this continued doing both thank you. I appreciate back continued doing both your about meditation. So am i. I'm i'm about mindfulness. i'm also about putting it into the atmosphere. What you want right because a friend of mine.

Whatever I would love to work with great. I just love all music. I feel like he can do no wrong. Every single song he puts out is hit no matter what so really would love to work with them. Do you think that rapping singing is a new standard. Like you.

"We were talking about. You know just a healthy self image and not giving into the labels and the lies that people might say about you in. I just remember all the labels that i had accepted over the years. Not good enough. Unlovable don't belong done with music unworthy. Not pretty enough. Boring hypocrite unintelligent meant to be alone the wa wa want want want lumps those our allies because they are so the opposite of what god thinks about me. That didn't make any mistakes. So whatever your belief is just stand in the fact that we just can't believe those labels in those lies. We cannot believe the things that people on social media say about you especially when they're negative especially when they are not life-giving so. I'm so glad that i have chanel on here today for us to talk about things that are going on and i know what it's like to be cyber bullied in. It's not a good feeling especially when you are when you like to engage with people on social media you know what i mean and so sometimes you have to sift through two or three negative comments sometimes before you get to the twelve positive comments. You know what i mean and so i would just say. Let's just just one another. Let's be careful about what we say. Or if you feel like it's something constructive or something that you feel led to say to somebody. I d m them. I'd send them a private message. And just leaving. God's hand be like hopefully they see it and if they don't they don't but always make sure that we are just speaking in love to people because we will reap what we so and i think that we will reap even what we type in the comments sections of what we say to people. So that's just my twenty five cents is because it's more than two cents but any who i thank you guys and i hope in this episode. You guys really. Here's some strength. And some inspiration.

Sex is garcia and colleagues point out there have been by a logical base to the greater acceptance of casual sex But there's no way to separate 'bout biology from sociocultural influences. Given that the two are tied to that the two are tightly intertwined will forever remain so so that. I think that's interesting because i was watching. You know not to cut you off is the science channel and i like under the influence i like to look at crazy and as humans we are sexual beings right we have sexual in nature As like people a man and a female. we're supposed to come together reproduce. That's why my always they wanna man. As opposed to providing duties that was supposed to happen. Society makes it thinks it's something else when is not true with that being said Back in the day even with slavery we have white men ripen is. Right bernard as we've always had a sexual nature like. I just want to put that on the table. There's nothing wrong with it is how we glorified an publicized. That's issue. And that's the that's the main thing and people like i don't i don't i think it's cool when people like they abstinent issue is i'm gonna get to that later on but like for people who don't like i'm gonna tell you you know. I can't make nobody he'd been not doing because you tell people not to do. They're going to do more. But it's just the way you go about it. i feel like and mentally. I feel like you're supposed to ask whether you have random sex for somebody that just show nigger for this month. Whatever have to have. Yeah you have. You're going to be vital online. You not going to be like as much as i want to. I do you ever even i be mad. You is is we all. Love is our is another quote from the side. Pegasus predict the people who engage engage more hookups have greater psychological distress. This interesting say college students who recently gave casual six reported lower levels of self esteem. life satisfaction happiness compared to those who had not had casual sex in the pan and students who recently engage in hookups head higher distress scores as indicated by levels of depression anxiety. In contrast to that notion men are okay with casual but women are not we did not find gender differences in the relationships between sex either distress will be it says for both men a win true hookup sex with a casual strange rather than a romantic partner. I would benefit saying d for mental health and self esteem. So some annetta which i can do insect so i mean a hookups. Casual six in a hookup. Death is the complete difference. That's why would you read. The definitions are different and often contested. Because back in college. I will have casual sex people i wanted to. I'm out of the philosophy as you will. Santana united states would say if i see like that's what i live by was closer people so if i see somebody clicking and i wanna have sex drama sex i'm wrong kind of body tells me otherwise beth as hooking up i feel like you plant in immediately like i'll i think he killed by him he'd find versus you casually just going with the flow of meeting someone like having sex with them by the he thought it was interesting though that it says the people who do have the casual sex that they tend to be more depressed anxious a thank likely people have cancelled tired. People it's a college to recently gaijin. The casual sex reported lower levels of self esteem. Life satisfaction happiness compares those who had not had casual sex so basically saying if people who don't have sex like that day self esteem and everything is kind of high.

Interview With Emma Grede
"Emma thank you so much for coming on the show. Welcome to skimmed from the couch. How i thank you so much for having way and mary excited to talk to you about everything that you've done but first let's jump into skimming your resume so my best job was when i was like twelve and i had to pay around and it gave me my best taste of cash. Which was just wonderful pitches stopped working since then. I went through the hosted in my life working in retail. And i had always weighty being about sasha i loved that world i come from place where you know. It was really devoid of any kind of fashion obama. So i found was really gravitating towards you. Know just the beauty and the supermodels and the brands you know. As i was growing up it was all about the saatchi and chanel and families that working in designer stores in and then my first proper job of coming out of college. I studied business at the london college of fashion and went straight into fashion. Show production avow myself in this really all. Its little niche because in london guests there. Was this amazing. You know london fashion week. Where all of these brilliant designers but nobody really had the money to put on this show. So i ended up in this strange donation of sponsorship and kind of creighton bronze collaborations with the great and the good of the british fashion industry. And that's weighty. Where taught my teeth. And i think that when i think about what it is today and where i've found my success it already started in those early days of being a production company and really learning how to bridge the gap between the creative businesses that fashion all and and more commercial bronze. And so. yeah. That was it for me. That's that was the beginning of it when something that people would be surprised to know about you. Oh i mean. I guess he will probably be surprised to know like how much about makeup i am. I guess maybe that's not something that you always associated with. Somebody who's an entrepreneur like my favorite thing to do is cooking and making things nice at the house. I'm an absolute festive fruit. Like the idea that. I get thanksgiving on top of christmas. Now i'm living in america could not be a need better. I'm not get to do that. Twice is at christmas participate so right now. That's all i think about is that. What is my thanksgiving menu table. Go look greg bat. That is my job. Elevate okay so. I love opening up our questions with entrepreneurs like yourself by talking about your childhood because our childhoods shape all of us and informs ultimately who we are in in how we make decisions. I want you to paint a picture for us about how you grew up in how you think that's shaped you. Yeah it's a great question on a great more. I failed so much of may an how i behave. How i treat people have chosen to comes from my childhood and you know i had a reedy great childhood. I grew up for e kind of a poll basically in east london very deprived area. And i say it so blatantly as that is because you know. It wasn't only devoid of glamour. It was completely devoid of opportunities. Everybody in that community had lived there their entire lives and you seemingly could get out of it. It was a huge jack of opportunity. A huge lacquers education and i saw for myself in my mother who really kind of broke through an managed to create something else for. She was a single mother with four children and my mom found herself. You know working in the stock exchange becoming a trader having a job for twenty plus years at morgan stanley. And that for me was you know it was just like a gateway sunday could see that you know you could create with with a lot of hard work and today and if you really did that you get rid of that to pay off then you could really really really change your outlook very very early on i. I really believe that the harder. I what the more likely would be to get myself out of. Why soares a pretty kind of dire situation but of course when you live and you grow up like that doing something you know. I could understand it if you're a doctor lawyer or going into banking fashion just didn't seem like a way out to me and so there are times in my life where i definitely thought. Oh am i on the wrong path which is ultimately why. I went and studied business at the london college fashion. Because i believe that. If i could set that foundation in business and have this specialism fashion that at least it would ground me that if all that fun bit didn't work out. I'd still have the basics of business. And i could go and run construction company. Also something

"Inauguration musical performances are tricky but lady gaga jennifer lopez and garth brooks. Did exactly what we needed them to do. By stephanie's jaric when lady gaga the first performer. At the inauguration of president joe biden and vice president kamala harris step toward the podium to sing everything about her that tropical red poof of skirt. The colossal golden dove perched on her shoulder that milk made from moma hairdo. Was celebratory announcement. Welcome to the modern age. Though the road ahead is rocky we no longer need to live and dread gaga living completely in the moment had arrived to point the way toward the future inauguration musical performances in their need to balance solemnity with jubilation are always tricky propositions but the biden harris performances from gaga. Lo and garth brooks performers from disparate backgrounds and different disciplines struck a note. Unlike any we've previously heard let's call it a sigh of relief building to a cheer of exaltation. even the cloud strewn blue of the washington sky seemed key to the moment and to this particular event taking place in a spot where just two weeks ago a bunch of clumsy if dangerous insurrectionist took a run at democracy and failed jennifer lopez was the centerpiece performer. But let's talk about her. First emerging all white chanel. She projected confidence civil woman who has worked her way to the top of her game. White everyone likes to note is one of the colors of the suffragettes. But it's also the color of working people in machine washable cotton and the color of luxury and dry clean only silken wall in this remarkable.

Woody guthrie allegedly and shabby hotel room just outside of times square. Not on the six but in close enough for lopez to sing this song a protest anthem but also an irrefutable declaration of belonging with so much conviction and boldness is to bring guthrie's intent and his dream full circle. This is in america. He couldn't have imagined. So terrible in some ways yet so radiant and others here is where woody and his work shirt meets a dazzling latina artists from the bronx who represents not just in terms of any monetary success but in her sheer awesomeness. Everything that an individual is free to strive toward in america. Lopez's version of the song wasn't a reclamation. You can't reclaim something that already belongs to you. And as she segue into the song we sometimes think of as our second national anthem. America the beautiful she reaffirmed that sense of ownership and pride and a breakout moment she shouted out in spanish words that translate into one nation under god indivisible with liberty and justice for all. But you didn't need to speak the language to know what she meant.

Summer quitting because of the stress for 10 months, June, Jaha has treated the sickest covert 19 patients in the ICU. He works at L. A county USC medical center, one of the county's largest public hospitals. Right now, the I feel crazy. He thought he'd seen the worst of the pandemic back in July, when cases spiked if it's so much worse than before. And it's taking a toll on the staff, John says. Every time he goes to work for another 12 hour shift, two or three other ICU nurses have taken time off. All the nurses is already started burning on You can't feel something in north of this depression. Burnout isn't the only reason for the staffing crisis during the first week of December, more than 1700 Healthcare workers across L. A county tested positive for the coronavirus. That was double the number from the week before. Like many healthcare workers who treat covert patients, Jonah has never been tested for the virus by his employer. He has to go to a free testing site on his days off, kinda using you. That's why we have so many nerves left. All right here. John has been an ICU nurse for more than 10 years, and he's proud of his work. But for the first time ever, he's thinking of quitting. Others already have. Like Chanel Rose crams.

She started working as an overnight ICU nurse in February, right before the pandemic hit running between rooms, monitoring complicated medications and breathing equipment left her dripping in sweat. And afraid that she would contract the virus. Before each shift. She would sit outside the hospital in her parked car filled with dread. I would pray till I cried begging God, please not let me lose a patient tonight. I can't take it. I just need my patients to stay alive tonight. Calling patients families was also difficult, especially when she had to explain that there was nothing else the medical team could do to keep their loved one alive. You've already done the convalescent plasma and they've been getting decade, Ron and they've been getting rendez of here. They've been getting all the stuff and it just felt like ticking time bombs, and I didn't want to have to just sit and wait for all these people to pass away. After more than eight months in the ICU, she quit her job in October. Now. Rosecrans works as a surgical nurse for a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills. But she still gets contacted by staffing agencies asking her to fill in at local ICUs. I don't see what the point of going right back would be because I feel like they're going to be operating in that crisis mode. Other nurses are quitting those high pressure jobs.

When you have whole family's coming into a nice you many times, that's morally very distressing. You're taking care of the mom that that and the adult Children all in the same ICU, she recommends that hospitals take a page out of the military's playbook and have debriefs. We're nurses are encouraged to talk about what happened on their shift. It can help with the feelings of isolation and nurses everywhere are hurting.

Nobody wears fur any more
"It's time to talk business. Now, with Dana Thomas, who's the paris-based? All of fashion operas the price of fast fashion and the future of closed Dan. Thanks so much for joining us. I must tell you that I have a relative who works in fashion and a little while ago. She very generously I thought started gifting me all these beautiful firs which she said she wasn't going to wear again I now understand why nobody's wearing her. Nobody's wearing for it took pita the people for Africo treatment of animals what thirty years to get this message through the heads of fashion industry players. But it seems like they're finally getting with the getting on board and they're slowing down or or banning. Nordstrom the. The American Department Store Big Department Store one of the few that. Actually is not completely shattered by the pandemic they managed to pull through Is Giving up selling furry will not be selling for I don't think for was a huge part of Nordstrom business. Nordstrom is a very middle market, suburban shopping mall kind of department store. So the for that they would sell would have been like the trim on your Parka or a little trim on a cough as opposed to a mink you wouldn't go to Nordstrom to buy a full length mink coat, but nevertheless there there disavowing vote as has macy's and Chanel a lot of brands have finally given up on it. I don't know what this is doing for the for instance, which is powerful and big industry and the for industry has made. Big Advances in over the years because of the pressure from Petah to make sure that that the whole. Farming, side of it was as humane as possible given you know in the end, you're killing animals for to wear clothing. You know more more humane certainly than the industrial agriculture side for cowhide for our handbags. But you know nevertheless, it seems like you know when they banned fog is in certain states. In the United States, this band for first serves feels like the same we're going to ban for not that anyone's really wearing it right now or that any can. Really afford it right now because they've all lost their shirts during the pandemic, but it's a good idea and maybe we should do it. So they're doing it and I think we're going to see a lot less than the streets but I mean all does and you point out that the house bill shoes I mean we're not talking about banning leather shoes. But you know. Gucci famously put out. mink trimmed Mules Apple seasons ago when I said Rubel Kelly took over the house and they were really popular. I remember seeing a woman on an airplane and I thought wow, that's really decadent. and. It feels really calm. It looks like it's probably really comfortable for an airplane to you WanNa you WanNa, wear something cushy on your feet. Right? I thought that is so decorated it feels like Louis Kettles and we won't be seeing at least being sold at Nordstrom. We won't be seeing those shoes anymore more. Then, and we don't have a lot of time but a very quick look at where we are in this case between tiffany and lvmh. Well, tiffany has decided to countersue. So I mean everyone's suing everybody else and it's it's just back and forth and back and forth tiffany says it did not experienced a managed material adverse effect during the pandemic and that basically lvmh trying to get a better deal, which is what we all believe it is and it says the lvmh's specious arguments are yet another blatant attempt to evade its contractual obligation to pay the agreed upon price for Tiffany and you know they're go to just fight this and see what happens I'm I'm interested to see how this plays out absolutely tiffany needs a sale and Wants it. Somebody's going to figure out the middle ground now? Why does tiffany need to sail? It's it's been in play for some time and it's it's kind of an a stuck place. They redid the store somewhat in New York. But it it a point where it needs to grow change or evolve at. It's kind of stuck an lvmh with its synergies and it's and it's specially it's retail network but also its whole marketing department everything would really give the brand a boost in a way that would take it to a new place tiffany's sort of motoring along but not great. Yeah. That's why it's been. The object of you know it's been. Looked at as a possible takeover lvmh just going to swoop in and buy a bowl the stock, and they still just may do that
Paris Fashion Week will go ahead this September
"And, finally, on today's program off to Paris to get a roundup of a busy few days in the fashion calendar, I'm joined on the line by Dana Thomas Journalist and author of fashion apples the price of fast fashion the future of clothes always good at talking to maybe just bring us up speed quickly on what has what the show is look like I was in Paris a few weeks ago there was much discussion. Where we're going to be world video presentations again, and many brands saying very committed to actually getting models, and of course, journalists and buyers in seats again and having them walk down a catwalk. What happened. Well some of that's happening. There are shows and people are attending. In fact, there's an official French calendar and on the French calendar, it should it tells who is going to be showing like Gabriella Hurston who is going to be digital chanel showing some people are doing digital. Some people are doing both. The same in Milan summer having shows and some are digital and. I don't know who's attending. I saw that Brian boy the the influence Sir is back in Milan and he's thrilled to be back in. Milan. I saw that on his instagram or his twitter feed but I mean, I know that for example, I contribute to the New York Times magazine is a New York Times as a freelancer, and that team is not coming to Paris spending Friedman's reviewing everything from her home in New York. So you know I know that. Americans aren't really aren't allowed to come to Europe anyway. So there's the whole Chinese can't people can't come to. Europe. A lot of people can't travel. So I, think it's mostly people who are in town who are going I was asked to go to some shows in Paris I have no interest going to watch them on digital. Why do you have no interest I'm curious because you're part of this. You know we're all in this together we that we we have to go out and support and a lot of people say the same thing with sporting events as well. Of course, if the if the guidelines are followed, etc you know. These things tend to drift away and become part of the sideline or do you think that the future is digital? We don't need to go to shows anymore even go into shops. I think that know they're pushing it too soon too fast. I. Think you know we don't need to go into shops and or we don't need to go to fashion shows right now. In fact to me, they feel frivolous and not taking what's going on terribly seriously Yes. We need to boast our our morale a bit by sitting next to people who could have the bro The bug and sitting there with a mask on and you can catch union, catch it through your eyes. You know I don't feel like taking that risk I'd rather be safe and I think that's the most important thing right now.
