Hello-Hello, welcome to an almost-weekend.
We’re all about some Friday Fun today, beginning with word of a Ladurée – Hello Kitty collaboration. We first heard about the new collection on Luxuo’s Twitter feed.
Here is more from the company’s Facebook page:
“…this joyful cooperation will yield a variety of creations: a new chocolate, a collection of gift-boxes, and a collection of little accessories.”
Below we have a better look at the artwork via fab French department store Colette (left) and a charm bracelet from the collection featuring macarons and the famous Kitty.
As some readers know, yours truly finds the cute Kitty inexplicably appealing; combining her with Ladurée only serves to increase our interest level. There are some darling stickers in the line as well.
The potential for cute food and related goodies is very high, you can see all of the items in Ladurée’s most recent newsletter (scroll down to see the products and pricing, the monetary unit used is the Euro).
Our other topic today involves that beautiful Lilly Pulitzer textile line from Lee Jofa.
The company carried a fun blog post this week about the hidden signatures in Lilly fabrics.
The Lilly look is easily recognizable, but did you know there is a simple way to test the authenticity of a true Lilly Pulitzer fabric? The name “Lilly” is built into the design of each pattern. This is true both for the clothing patterns and the fabric available to interior designers exclusively through Lee Jofa.
We’ve made it easy to spot the Lilly in each print, take a look!
Up top we show a swatch of the Bimini print, below, Heritage Floral.
You can see the signatures much better with their help, below Color Me Coral.
Here’s one I *never* would have been able to find, In a Twist.
Our last example, Racey Lacey, a print I really like.
We’ll make that our Pretty in Pink for the day.
Finally, a reminder
(as if it’s needed) about the return of Mad Men Sunday night. Because I have been stalking occasionally taken a glance at the Mad Men website, we can share that there are new photos from the new season. Betty is too stern for today’s Pretty in Pink.
Roger is looking rather intense.
Peggy’s green frock is TDF.
I think every hour is the cocktail hour at Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Pryce.
Much as I hate cluttering up posts with meaningless photos (cough cough), here’s one last image to hold you until Sunday.
(I’m a little concerned about Don’s cufflinks. They look, well… loud.)
