TETE DE LION




... sorry guys, but I just HAVE to do this... After learning from Anne that for some, these cardboard cards replace status symbols like expensive cars and fluffy fur coats. Anne's words were of course inspired by Bryan Grey Yambao (as we now know). Now then, here comes mine, skilfully staged on a Parisian flocati carpet.

That said, it doesn't "count" the same way as BB's of course, because I wasn't invited as the author of this much ignored blog (ha, that would be fun!).

Anyhow, another thing I'm always asking myself when I get this kind of very elaborate show invitations: *who* is in charge of the beautiful hand-writing. Chanel, but also Dolce & Gabbana or Louis Vuitton invitations are always written in a very beautiful calligraphy. Maybe there is one little clerk sitting in an office all year who gets to write all the invitations when fashion week is on? Or maybe there is a hand-writing agency somewhere in Paris, or Milan?

Maybe someone knows ? ...



edit: So that's what the "tête de lion" was all about. The collection remained largely devoid of lion symbols, though.
