A is for...Anniversaries
A number of big names celebrated milestones this year, including Canada’s own Holt Renfrew, which marked 175 years with a mobile fashion tour and a series of collaborations with the likes of Manolo Blahnik and Diet Coke, while Aldo fêted 40 years of fast-fashion footwear with parties and exclusive products galore. Tiffany & Co. also rang in 175 years, as did Hermès with a special exhibition in London (aptly named Leather Forever). Shiseido saluted 140 years with fresh takes of some of its most iconic products, and Thierry Mugler Parfums, maker of the unmistakable star-shaped Angel scent, turned the big 2-0.
