Carine Roitfeld Joins Barneys

Carine Roitfeld, the former editor of French Vogue, has joined Barneys as a guest editor and stylist for Fall/Winter 2011-2012. The campaign will celebrate Roitfeld’s iconic style and her collaboration at Barneys’ flagship store in New York, where her looks will be featured in Madison Avenue’s legendary windows. Roitfeld has been the subject of much speculation in the fashion world, including rumors that she would go into business with Tom Ford. "Carine is a one of a kind talent. She is both a muse and an inspiration. She has extraordinary individual style and infectious passion, and I have always admired her work,” says Barneys Creative Director Dennis Freedman in a statement. Roitfeld says the project is “a dream come true,” adding, “It is my first time working on the retail side of the fashion business, and I am so excited. Barneys is my favorite store in the States and partnering with them has been thrilling for me.”
