The cut at 4:20 is so good something you would NEVER see now!

Dave....thanks for the clip (4:20). It's been a while since I've thought of Bill....wow....what a gentleman. There were many a party at his New Preston house that you would nearly want to give up one of your testicles for an invitation. The boys were extraordinary. It was always fun parking on the front lawn. The models would have the "shit" cars while the "money" folks....well, you catch the jist. Again, thanks for the memory....Joe

Poor Bill if he was still around and had to deal with the Academy Awards these days... he'd wish he was dead.

Can't really think of a designer's name these days who I'd want on my chocolates, certainly very few of them come across as gentlemen, and most of the brands would be inedible (could you imagine eating Dsquared?)
...though perhaps Galliano could whip up a wicked box of chocolates.
I'm sure the christian audigier chocolates are already in production, and the tom fords must be already past their "best before".

At least Bill never made the ultimate Courreges misdeed and signed a Hoover (I've searched for a Courreges vacuum cleaner for years! I did find a Courreges bathroom scale in Tokyo).

even better than lighting up mid-interview: the name "barbaralee diamonstein". amazing.

I agree kb..the name is priceless. I am now going to call my Italian Greyhound 'Barbaralee Diamonstein' for the rest of the day.

Oh, NSFW - The Dyson ISSEY MIYAKE vacuum is the only haute appliance you'll ever need. It's a limited edition item but I nabbed one a few months back -

I like it when designers go "blue" and sell their name. thats when you get the weirdo merchandising and they just stick the name on anything and you get things like the MUGLER FRY DADDY. The ad campaign was a close up of a deep sea angler fish ( the kind with the needle teeth and glowing antennea) fried tempura style.

Too bad so many of the good guys are gone! My fav was YSL. If his name was on anything he designed it. He had a buyer and a cutter and the rest was his work (small wonder he spent time in sanatoriums!) On the other side was Pierre Cardin; no one had more licensed goods than he. Hundreds of items. I was given his 'wine' once; not much better that vinegar!
