Apple’s Design Boss Jony Ive Gives A Rare On-Stage Interview

Apple’s design boss Jony Ive gave a rare live interview at Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit in San Francisco Thursday night.

Ive spoke with Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter about a variety of topics, with a heavy focus on Apple’s current lineup of consumer gadgets: The iPhone 6 and Apple Watch.

The full play-by-play of the talk is below. But here are some highlights:

  • An audience member asked Ive how he feels about companies copying Apple designs. Ive called it “theft” and laziness. He said Apple designers give up so much to design products, that it’s offensive when someone copies.
  • Ive sees the Apple Watch as his first step beyond designing consumer electronics. It’s clear he sees the watch as a watch, and not just another gadget.
  • Finally, he talked about why Apple waited so long to make big-screen iPhones. It took Apple’s design team to get a big-screen form factor right without compromising the look and feel of the device. He also said other big phones today are ugly.

Pigalle’s hoop dreams

Pigalle is an arrondissement, an attitude, and one of today’s most exciting brands. Stephane Ashpool’s company speaks the lingua franca of global streetwear – he has signature hoodies, for example, signature enough to appear on the back of A$AP Rocky. Yet he skillfully clashes it with a fine tailoring aesthetic and a style grammar taken from the streets where he grew up, as the son of a Yugoslav ballet dancer, around the beyond-vibrant melting pot of the 18th arrondissement area that named his brand after.

Basketball is a bedrock for the brand – we previously debuted his collaboration with Nike, adding an artful patina to their classic b-ball shoe, the Air Force 1, and Stephane himself played for his city back when. Now, there’s a total look out for the court, and, to go with it, we’re showing three short films about the building of the dedicated Pigalle basketball pen. Housed by the store, it was painted by neighbours, and the team of local kids Stephane coaches every week. Take a look at the collection above, the films throughout, and a short interview below.
