Looped, wrapped, and shimmering

December 2nd, 2011

With typically Swiss precision Santa came early this year.  We were out of breath, but honey, we were ready , with our windows full of yoohoo loops and whirly wreaths, and a delicious dish of cookies. Forgive him if she shows up in your chimney a little tipsy, we also had some champagne chilled. This year he got us the top wish on our list – some absolutely incredible ladies for our team.

Carol hails from NY, worked for 9 years at PAPER magazine as a creative director and writer, and loves making ceramic wonders in Alexander Wang gowns. When she is not creating porcelain miracles, she is now delicately composing most funky texts and visuals for our site. We make her try on every piece before she writes about it -it is a tough job, but Carol handles it with grace and humor, and we know she can persevere (she beat several customers to our prettiest grey wooly hat).

Caroline is our Norwegian-French newcomer. Which might explain why, in true Wonderwoman style, she prefers getting up every morning for an hour’s run along the lake instead of our usual coffee and cigarettes. She will, impeccable dresses, hammer feathers into display cases, work the photo studio, and share with you her spot-on sensé of style (honed at Vogue and Prada). AND we just discovered that she was born to make Christmas wreaths of such beauty that the make the Alber Elbaz Christmas tresse for Claridge’s look a little uninspired. Actually we wonder if she secretly IS Santa.

And last but not least, Justine, who spent one month making paper loops with the utmost cheerfulness, patience, and style, and got Santa his cookies. And what can we , how can we not love a girl who pends her last cent on shoes.

Thank you Santa!!!

With much love
