Published on New Year's Day this year, Rene Girard's "The One By Whom Scandal Comes" is the philosopher's latest extension of his great theory of mimetic desire. In a world where post-modern post-structuralism has been so institutionalized so as to form its own orthodoxy (oh the irony), Girard's philosophical certitude, attendant to a Christian theology, moral in its considerations and humanistic in its concerns, hovers at the edge of intellectual unfashionability.

The speed! The speed! How is an erstwhile fashion editor to keep up with the fast forwarding of talent exposure these days? All the London mags prowl outside St. Martins before the bell even rings on a new semester. In New York , V Files does a majestic job of first adopting anything emphatic coming onto the young designer market while Opening Ceremony is rapid firing through all the blogs and Instagrams and Tumbler feeds globally.

Wouldn't you love to be a fly on the wall when the House of Vuitton has one of its meetings on its advertising and marketing strategies over the next year or so? As a consumer you're not supposed to even sense that there is construction and strategy behind it all. All you have to do is be convinced, seduced and then spend.
