• Jony Ive and Marc Newson Opening for Condé Naste’s International Luxury Conference



    Condé Naste’s ‘International Luxury Conference’ on April 22nd and 23rd will feature Apple’s SVP of Design Jony Ive and part-time employee Marc Newson in the opening act. Vogue’s International media editor Suzy Menkes will be interviewing the Apple duo on the topic ’21st century definition of luxury and their collaborative work to date’. We’re sure the upcoming Apple Watch will be a big topic in the interview as the launch is right after this conference.

    “Apple is now a powerful part of the luxury industry,” Menkes said today. “The iPhone, iPad, and the forthcoming Apple Watch are in direct competition with handbags, timepieces and high-end accessories. I want Jony Ive to tell the conference delegates where 21st century luxury is headed.”
    The conference will be taking place in Florence and the fact that Apple representatives will be at this conference, shows that the company is really trying to market themselves in the fashion industry. Marc Newson was noted to have started working for Apple since September of 2014, but it was also noted that Newson has been giving ideas on the Apple Watch for years.
