Weekly Fashion News

For my degree I have to find and report back weekly fashion news, so I've decided to report my favourites on my blog. 
This week my favourite is the McDonalds VS Prada story, when I first read this title I was quite confused, as you would be. The story is actually about McDonalds being pushed out of it's premium location at Milan's Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II shopping arcade, a position the fast food chain has held for over 20 years. The Prada boutique is the second in this beautiful location.
Now, you can see the reasoning behind the city of Milan wanting this fabulous location to remain exclusive to stores such as Louis Vuitton and Gucci but McDonalds is now seeking a pay out of €24 million from the city of Milan in "damages over unfair public tender allegations" the chain has claimed that there are clauses in their contract that states that the restaurant was "exempt from closure".
"We don't want to fight with the city, but we were kicked out unfairly" Italian McDonalds Chief Executive Robert Masi told the Financial Times. 

Chanel Little Black Jacket Exhibition

The re-making of a classic, Chanel's stunning exhibition featuring the original black jacket has been revisited by the genius that is Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld. In the exhibition you can see the jacket styled expertly and worn by 113 different celebrities, it premiered in the fashion forward city of Tokyo and was shot over 6 days in their photo studio in Paris. It was modelled by his "favourite muses" both men and women and featured faces such as Alexa Chung, Georgia May Jagger and the unexpected Kanye West wearing the iconic jacket. 
The exhibition is currently on in London until the 28th october in four huge rooms in the Saatchi Gallery and admission is free.
