"Strategy is just the story you tell everybody after you’ve done it."
-- Franck Riboud, CEO of French consumer products giant Danone (known here in the US as Dannon)
This is from a well-written New York Times T Magazine story
about François-Henri Pinault
, who is currently the top exec at French luxury fashion conglomerate LVMH. It was a nicely arranged story that equally sated my appetites for both fashion and business news.
In fact, I only just read the February 15th edition
of T Magazine this past week when I picked it up in a hotel gym, and the whole issue was quite good. In addition to the Pinault piece, I also enjoyed the thoughtful and fun interview with Lee Radziwill
, who these days very rarely speaks to the press. When it comes to Princess Radziwill
, you can read the whole thing and also watch the online video embedded here
