The Winners of the French Fifi Awards 2014

Here are the French Fifi Award winners 2014, fresh from the oven before I go to sleep…
I am particularly pleased that the jury I belong to rewarded Comme des Garçons: I feel we fulfilled our mission, which is to single out the true originals.

I was also touched to hear Jean-Claude Ellena, collecting his award for Jour d’Hermès, say that Hermès chose “a French accent” over attempting to speak some sort of Esperanto aiming to please international markets. But I am also quite puzzled by an olfactory world where Jour and Invictus can share a podium: can you imagine a woman wearing the former falling in love with a man wearing the latter?

  1. "Super Playboy" Oh, boy, I am going to laugh about that all day.

    1. I clearly don't shop in the right places. I didn't even know such a thing existed, let alone that it was sold in France! Does Playboy even exist in France?
