As I was spooning a slab of butter into my pan to make the smoothest, creamiest scrambled eggs, I realized there are two types of people in this world – those that cook with butter, and those that don’t. Which are you? – Jenn
Here’s a list of things to read because it’s likely what people will be talking about on Monday, or you can be the first (please, as if I watch soccer for ‘fun’):
- We all know what’s going on in Greece, with the ‘should I stay or should I go?’ vote happening today. But for a country that buys, supplies and produces clothing, it will also impact the fashion world. (Business of Fashion)
- Were you Team Seth or Team Ryan? I thought this was a joke, but the O.C. is being revived… as a all singing, all dancing musical. See, you think it’s a joke too, don’t you? (Vanity Fair)
- SEE: In the run-up to the last few weeks, the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty currently exhibiting at London’s V&A will be open for 24 hours for the last few weekends. If you fancy some culture on the side of your post-night out kebabs at 4am, why not take a look? (Dazed & Confused)
- Well, Trump really did himself over, didn’t he? Here’s a great insight into the Donald Trump story and the importance of branding. (Inc)
- Every year women’s soccer gets just. that. little. bit. more. coverage, and this year the England team, or player, Laura Bassett have all of a sudden received even more coverage with a whole lot of stick (on skill, being a women and all that) for scoring an own goal during injury-time against Japan last week (which would have secured them in the semi-final spot). Well, you know what, men score own goals too, and this should be the link you send people, Laura. (Shiny Shiny)
- After the Net-a-porter x Yoox merger, there was a lot of speculation as to what would happen to Natalie Massanet, especially given the flurry of exits happening in the fashion world at present. Last week, the fierce lady boss announced she ain’t goin’ nowhere. Not that she’d talk like that, but you catch my drift. (Bloomberg)
- Nicholas Winton died at age 106 this week. If you don’t know who he is, he saved 669 Jewish children during the holocaust and didn’t tell anyone what he did for half a century. Talk about being humble. Read the interesting story here. (New York Times) #LongRead
- US, Canada & Australia have been named as the best countries for female business owners. Passports on the ready, anyone? (Fortune)
Please send all relocation tales, suggested OC musical scores & heart-warming stories to firstname.lastname@example.org. This was a bit of a serious week, wasn’t it?
Our snapshot this week is from the Coq D’Argent rooftop in Central London where we decided to host our meetings this week, because yay for sunshine. My screen looks so dusty, but I swear it isn’t.
