Anyone who will sing a song about Pompeii in the middle of the British Museum get's a big thumbs up in my book, that's probably the coolest thing ever. There seriously aren't enough history nerds out there.
I'll be at D & A this weekend thru Monday showing all things bags, wallets, and pouches! If you are interested in coming by please email me at email@example.com or feel free to come by when you can! See you soon!!
A BIG thank you to my factory for putting a ton of effort in at the last minute to get these samples done. I can't thank you enough!! :)
I'm so exhausted right now that the best I can offer you is this wonderful diptych featuring Yoda and David Tenant.
These past 3 weeks have been the most exhilarating, difficult, and at the same time most wonderful experiences that I have had. I am in the midst of getting ready for my first trade show starting on Friday (Designers and Agents to be exact, but more on that shortly) and at the same time trying to sending off a big wholesale order. If you have ever been done theater, I would compare it to the highs and lows you experience before opening night. Things can stink because you aren't sleeping well and you feel like it will never turn out perfect, but somehow no matter how tired you feel somehow really good things come of it - maybe ones you weren't expecting. Life has a big learning curve for sure, but I'm glad I've decided to stick with it no matter how hard it has felt at times because I know something really great could come out of it in the end. But for now I'm going to go chillax on the couch and catch up on Capaldi's new version of the Doctor because I can't think of a better way to spend the next hour before I collapse and fall asleep :)
Italian Kid leather glove shoes by Martiniano, available in Hermes (tan) and Burgundy. These fit true to size in my opinion, though I've seen a few other places say you should size down a half size, but I don't really think you need to. I'm a US 7.5 and the 37.5 fits perfect, though I can also comfortably wear the 37 because the leather is soft and stretches. They are so comfy! Trying my best not to keep a pair for myself ;)
I am thrilled to let you know that rennes will be taking part in the For Stockists Exhbition in Tokyo at the beginning of September! More info and directions here. Ayaka from Oeuvre and Persica and I have been working together over the past ten months putting this together. Ayaka will be showing our goods at the tradeshow for three days, so please if you are going to be nearby do stop by. I'm very excited about this and wish I could be there too because it looks like a really wonderful event (Maybe next year?!). Please also stay tuned for an event at Oeuvre in Fukuoka at the end of September :)
I will also be doing a tradeshow in NYC in mid September, stay tuned for more news on that shortly!
