 |  November 3rd, 2016

Today, thanks to Frederique Constant, I helped to buy books and novels for young students in America. The novels, I believe, will help open their eyes to other worlds, to themes that can be their mantras, or just to adventure. Without books, I would never have become the writer and dreamer that I am today. The effort came via a gift card given to me – and all others in attendance — at last week’s unveiling of the brand’s new…

 |  May 22nd, 2014

I remember it well. It was 1995 and I was at BaselWorld. I had an appointment with a young new brand that had been established in 1988 and launched its first collection of six models in 1992.
