I'm back from the whirlwind day trip to LA! It was exciting to be present for something so creative and fresh and I must give Banana and team huge props for pulling all of this off with every single detail perfectly thought out and so well executed. The runway show on the plane was a blast (the whole plane was involved, it was awesome) and then we headed to Kiernan Shipka's beautiful Beverly Hills maison for a cocktail party to see the whole collection. The rooms at the Mondrian were amazing and inspired me to rethink my couch idea... The couch they have is actually a chaise lounge with a headboard behind it! So brill.
The collection itself is my favorite so far (polka dots! pink cigarette pants! Statement jewelry!) and Janie was wearing one of my favorite dresses from the collection and was a gem to talk to in person. And lastly, I had to meticulously bubble wrap my bottle of Dewar's and check my tiny carry on bag just to get it home... The guys at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce would be proud!
