Vogue’s newly installed international editor, Suzy Menkes, has some pretty clear opinions about fashion and the internet. In a recent interview with Style.com’s EIC Dirk Standen, Menkes gave her two cents about everything from malicious online commenters to the rise of fast fashion.
"You know, I do appreciate that a lot of people are using a tremendously loud voice - mean comments - in order to get noticed," Menkes told Standen. "It’s one thing when you’re working for Condé Nast and quite another when you’re a blogger at home trying just to get out there, so I sort of understand why it’s done." Taking the moment to set the record straight, she told Standen that she was never against bloggers, even after her piece on the tiring circus of fashion was published. They just (maybe) take the focus off of the core of what the fashion industry is all about.
When it comes to New York designers, she’s a little bored by the current selection. “I’d like to see a little bit more daring, a little bit more shock waves going through me,” Menkes told Standen. “[…] And you know, in a way designers need to be wild and full of crazy, manic energy, and then they start to be tamed. If they start off tame, I’m not sure whether that’s quite as strong.”
But that’s mild compared to her thoughts on the rise of fast fashion. “I think fashion is far, far too cheap. I am disgusted about people running in to buy dresses that cost the same as a cappuccino and a croissant,” said Menkes. “People have got into a state of mind that the cheaper it is, the better it is, and they don’t want to think beyond that.”
