Apple Officially Hires French Fashion Guru
Following a full day of rumors and rumblings about Apple supposedly hiring a well-known French fashion guru, we can now report that there is indeed truth behind all the talk.
Quietly but officially, Apple confirmed late Tuesday that the iDevice maker has hired Paul Deneve, who was once CEO of luxury fashion goods company Yves Saint Laurent. What will Deneve do at Apple? There's no shortage of speculation on that front tonight. Officially, Apple says that the incoming hire will be in charge of "special projects."
"We're thrilled to welcome Paul Deneve to Apple," Apple confirmed to Bloomberg. "He'll be working on special projects as a vice president reporting directly to Tim Cook."
Directly to Tim Cook? That's pretty high up the food chain for a newbie at Apple. Sounds like these "special projects" are definitely special. Although there were initial rumors that Apple might put Deneve in charge of retail, that's not happening according to Apple... at least not yet.

I can already see everyone standing outside of Saks Fifth Avenue waiting in line to purchase an "iJacket"

it's funny how other smartphone manufacturers are already planning to go beyond HD resolutions for their next display tech and Sony is planning to come out with smartphones able to capture video at UHD resolutions and 55mp stills as well as 3D.....and what Apples does??? you ask me! hires a fashion dude. Way to go Apple!!......Tim Cook is almost as bad as Balmer.

Sounds like "wearable hardward" to me. The iWatch as pointed out may be the one. Yeah, I have not been very excited about much of what Cook has done..what has he done again?? :]

I think hiring new guy was a good choice! Apple likes to have great style in their products, it sounds like this guy can help deliver that!

Apple could be planning all kinds of things. They don't like to advertise. They keep everything hush hush.

Fashion makes no sense sometimes so this might not be the best move for apple

Like Android I have BIG PLANS too...
I'm planning on making a car that runs off of outdated Android phones. Good thing there are so many Android phones that are outdated out of the box!
It's my hope they design a watch I can wear all day both in the office and social. The Nike watched and Samsung watches look like an iPod Nano with a wrist band and just looks tacky and silly.
Hopefully it will actually focus on biometrics as indicated and change the way we view health management in the world. Samsung can focus on adding pointless phone features to the tiny watch while Apple can leave them wondering how they could make the same product and still miss the target by miles.

"..well-known French fashion guru" should get in touch with a well-known barber and do something with that hair.
