Holiday orders are piling up! We've been busy. I haven't been blogging. The only thing I have been capable of doing lately besides this day-to-day running my just-beyond-fledgling business, and being a mediocre wife and mama, was first to lose myself in Freedom by Jonathan Franzen. Then, when I plowed through the 600 pages like it was a chapter book, le mari and I launched into a k-hole-like obsession with season 1 of the tv show Friday Night Lights (weird, I know, but it was highly recommended from people I respect and I'm not ashamed to admit to a school-girl-like crush on Matt Seracen.) It's been an odd coupla weeks. But back to the orders at hand: THEORY.
Mr. Olivier Theyskens' Theory. That one. While in France this summer, I received an email from them. Email said they were interested in talking to me about carrying my bags. With stunned disbelief, I set up a call with them a week later to discuss further...So in three timezones - at 10 a.m. Jocelyn in Los Angeles (après breakfast), at 1 p.m. in NYC (at lunchtime) a couple of Theory merch people and buyers and me at 7 p.m. (pre-aperitif, pre-dinner) had a conference call. And I'm not gonna lie, it was kinda cool to say I'm calling in from Paris. (Sometimes it's in the details.)
Two months, and one in-person meeting later, and we're shipping a holiday order to stellar-reputation-holding-prime-real-estate-occupying-Theyskens-designing-THEORY. Here're Joce and Mat mega stamping and packing.
