grace coddington becomes creative partner of tiffany & co.
Having taken a step back from her role as Creative Director at American Vogue after 27 years -- adding 'At Large' to her title in January -- Grace Coddington is now busier than ever. First she launched her fragrance with Comme des Garcons, simply entitled Grace, and now she has become a Creative Partner of Tiffany & Co., the first time the legendary jewelry company has employed someone in the role. Coddington has worked on the casting and styling of the brand's fall campaign, which is currently in production in New York.
"Tiffany -- and its famed Blue Box -- has always held special meaning for me," Coddington tells WWD of her longstanding respect for the house. "To me, this is not just an ad campaign, but an opportunity to portray a legendary house of luxury through modern portraits of uniquely talented subjects. Each perfectly reflects, in her own way, Tiffany's most iconic collections."
Not content with these accomplishments, Coddington recently revealed to Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner's Lenny Letter that she might like to make an animated film. Why not? If her new website is anything to go by, it would likely feature her beloved cats.
