Hello-Hello, is everyone settling into the week?
We start with simply outstanding news for Goyard fans, especially those of us fond of the color pink.
The upscale luggage maker has released a limited edition group of pieces.
The Life in Pink Collection for Spring/Summer 2009 is now available. There is a great selection at Bergdorf Goodman, and of course the Goyard stores scattered about the country also have these pieces.
We were also told about a piece being offered on eBay:
It appears to be authentic, but with items like this TP is a big believer in purchasing directly from the company. If interested in the auction be advised it ends May 3.
Some readers may remember our post on Scandanavian Preppy styles with an emphasis on Swedish retailer Boomerang. The company’s tagline is “Defining Swedish Preppy Since 1976.” Here are a few more looks from their Spring/Summer 2009 Men’s Line.
The women’s and children’s collections are equally outstanding.
Today marks the release of The Towering World of Jimmy Choo: A Glamorous Story of Power, Profits, and the Pursuit of the Perfect Shoe.
How’s that for a title? We absolutely love the way Publishers Weekly starts their review of the book:
“Backstabbing and bitchery dominate this tale….”
Those pondering their summer reading lists may also be interested in the latest from Jay McInerney, his new collection of short stories, How it Ended. As reviewer John Freeman (US editor for British literary mag Granta) describes the author:
“He has been a roguish night crawler, a faithful chronicler of the preppy party class and their vodka and tonic-fueled lurch through life…”
““Madonna of Turkey Season,” a rather aborted tale of brothers competing to bring home the loveliest holiday guest, is littered with too many towns and prep school names.
The book is available at many libraries as well as Amazon and other online booksellers.
When it rains it pours, at least if it is April and Fred Perry is the topic! Here at the Prepatorium we were excited to read that one of our favorite retailers, Gargyle, is offering 30% off all Fred Perry!
