Carine Roitfeld Teams Up with Barneys

If you think that Carine Roitfeld’s upcoming memoir is the only thing on the former French Vogue editor’s to-do list, you’re sorely mistaken: the French fashion connoisseur has teamed up with Barneys to be the store’s guest editor for their winter/autumn 2011-12 seasons, and will be styling and editing their advertising campaign, catalogue, newsletters and Madison Avenue store windows. (Whew.)

In a recent interview with WWD Roitfeld gushed that the development was “very exciting” and sang her praises for her new endeavour: “It’s good to have a new life, because now I can do projects that I never dreamed of before. For me, Barneys has always been the biggest name in luxury department stores, so to be able to participate in this project with them . . . is my dream come true. To a French girl, it’s a big, big dream.”

So for now, all other Carine Roitfeld rumours are out the window. The former editor slammed the reports of collaborations with Dior and Saint Laurent, going on to say “what I know is that I have my freedom and I will keep my freedom forever”, which officially kiboshes any whispers that she’s set to return to the magazine game.

No, author, editor (of Barneys arguably most exciting season) and general fashion icon is work enough.
