The News in Brief

Dior has “postponed indefinitely” its menswear show slated for March 23 in Hong Kong. Production teams, travelling guests and local authorities were informed yesterday of the change, just a month before the event.

The Capri-owned Italian label has appointed Caroline Deroche Pasquier communications chief and used the occasion to highlight the long list of key hires made by new CEO Emmanuel Gintzberger.

Petit Ami's recent projects include a showroom for Mugler, where clothes floated through the air in an echo of the brand’s September runway show, and scenography for an exhibition at the Villa Noailles showcasing garments by Y/Project and Diesel creative director Glenn Martens.
