Remember Matilde? She's from Belgium, worked for me for a year and then she left to go to school in London...
Well, she came back last week for a visit, this time with her parents and her younger sister, Giulia.
Of course I couldn't resist taking pictures of my former favorite model along with sis. Matilde is carrying our new duffel which comes out in late May. Giulia, the oversized clutch in green.
Mat is in love. This is her boyfriend Pierre, he lives in LA. I think she may come back here soon...
I got a beautiful bouquet of flowers delivered from Clementine, the newish shop in Silverlake next to Cafe Stella and Intelligentsia.
It's lovely to receive flowers for any occasion. People should do it more often, it's just true, even if the prompting is an apology. :)
That striped clutch which was above on my desk next to the flowers - here is it having tea at Intelligentsia. It also debuts in May.
There were meetings with Barbara Bestor the architect designing the first Clare Vivier store opening in May. Look at the funny shape of this space! The brightness and visibly of this location are key. We move to our new studio space early next week to free up the store for construction.
Chocolates, intricately screened with the Dior headquarters at Place Vendôme in Paris were given in the gift bag. That same day Heather and I also made it to a party at Chateau Marmont for Karen Walker eyewear and I was so excited to actually meet KW! What a talent. Pics from Vogue.au here.
A package came from Grace Lee and not because she was a jerk to me...:)
It's amazing how excited I can get for her black pouches.
This was what was inside the drawstring sacks. Her gold lace ring, two diamond eternity bands, and a rose gold solitaire. And no, they were not all for me, unfortunately.
But Mat and Giulia were my favorite moment of the week. And so was meeting their parents Lorenzo and Astrid.
