Coco Chanel, who was born on August 19, identified with her astrological sign of Leo, which is why the lion has been a recurrent motif within the house's jewelry, design and objets. In fact, Karl Lagerfeld famously used a large gold lion as the centrepiece of the Chanel AW 2010 Couture runway. #chanel #lion #leo #cocochanel #karllagerfeld

Famed salsa singer Oscar D'Leon: "Venezuela es música, sabor, alegría. Somos un pueblo solidario, amistoso y con mucho swing." (Venezuela is music, flavor, joy. We are a people who stand in solidarity, friendly and with a lot of liveliness.)

Precisely what we discussed at the Costa Rica Fashion Summit, via @vetements_official: "Fashion is a very dirty industry. Deadstock in the US amounts to $50bn every year. After the oil industry, fashion is the second-biggest polluting industry in the world. Fashion chief executives scream about sustainability, and how they plan to cut carbon emissions by 40 per cent and reduce environmental impact by 50 per cent in every interview. But none of those brands seem to understand that a much easier solution is just in front of them. Preventing overproduction in the first place would have an immediate effect on reaching those sustainability goals. The industry talks about conspicuous consumption — buying for the sake of buying — as the reason behind the growth in the luxury segment. But brands are producing more product than there is demand for. I call it conspicuous production, producing for the sake of producing and artificially inflating the numbers." #VETEMENTSxSAKS #sustainability #vetements #sustainablefashion #fashion #zerowaste

One of Carmen's priorities on her trip to Costa Rica was to meet with former president Laura Chinchilla Miranda. It was interesting that the country boasts so many impressive stats. It has been democratic since 1948, it's the fifth most sustainable country in world, had a president who won a Nobel Peace Prize, and dissolved its army to create investment in education and the conservation of nature. Within Latin America, it has the best educational system, highest English proficiency and also ranks first in innovation and facets of research and development. #costarica #latinamerica
