I am not an avid television viewer, mainly because I haven’t the time, and also because there are other things I’d rather do on my nights in- such as tiptoe into my Mothers wardrobe, steal a few of her fabulous pieces, take them up to my room, and try on a multitude of outfits to decide whether I keep the stolen goods, or return them slyly.
However, I do love to engross myself in a dramatic witty television series, such as my newfound favorite- Mad Men. These episodes have everything:
1- An Era I wish I had belonged to.
2- A clever storyline.
3- A very gorgeous man.
4- An extremely sexually charged undertone.
5- and of course- Fashion!
I urge everybody to watch it!
So I was not surprised that it has become somewhat of a Muse to fashion houses and designers alike; Erdem and I spoke quite heavily about our beloved series once over dinner.
The most recent project that has sprouted from the genius that is Mad Men, is a collaboration with American store Banana Republic.
Between the dates of July 21st and August 11th, they will have all the mannequins graced in 1950/60′s silhouettes, decorating their windows with stills from the show, as well as offering a prize to one shopper of a walk on role of the series!
This could be all fine and dandy, but I’d rather be lying back at home, draped in my cashmere knit throw, with a box full of dark chocolate dipped strawberries, and hope to achieve Christina Handricks lustworthy body. She alone is worth watching!
