When the cat's away...

John's back from his month in Europe. He got back last week, and he has some stories to tell. More on that later, though. 

See, we had some fun while he was away.

We climbed on the furniture.

We tried on the new Number (N)ine. 

We snuggled up to the new Yves Andrieux pillows.

It was like the Cat in the Hat in here!

Number (N)ine is a collection designed by Takahiro Miyashita, who's a real character. According to this article he draws a lot of inspiration from music, and a lot from place. The collection that you see a smidge of above was, in fact, inspired by the Pacific Northwest, and it is a great blend of Seattle and Japan. It incorporates flannel, corduroy, thermals, plaid, and skinny pants, and does it with unusual detail and perfect fit, which makes it special. 

This is also Number (N)ine's last collection. With our shipment, we received a pin that said, "Goodbye." 

That pillow is from Yves Andrieux, and it's made out of vintage French army fabric. It smells like sex. There are bags too, made out of the same stuff. They smell like sex, too. I mean it.

Stay tuned for those stories. Teaser: on his way to a showroom, in Paris, John saved an old woman's life!
