Free YSL!

fethebloglogo_signAnother Fashion Week approaches; yet another YSL Manifesto stunt. This is this third year I believe. Look out for the YSL brand ambassadors combing the streets of NYC ( as well as Paris, London, Milan, Tokyo and Hong Kong) once again handing out 2000 limited edition cotton tote bags and heart shaped USB keys. I would have appreciated if the newspaper style manifesto was actually saved on the key along with the ad campaign images of Claudia Shiffer shot in Hollywood with photographers Inez and Vinoodh. Save some trees and up the ‘techno chic’ green factor. Maybe next year.

The drop happens on Valentine’s Day, February 14th, 2009.

I’ll be in San Francisco that weekend. Someone grab one for me if you happen to see them!

I can’t believe the Yves Saint Laurent tribute is going on right now at the De Young Museum and there won’t be any distribution there. Just seems like a relevant thing to do. I’ve heard amazing things about the exhibition and haven’t been able to make the trip until now. The run wraps up on April 5th. That’s actually exactly what I’ll be doing on Valentine’s Day with the special. He’s already been as well. This will  be the second fashion exhibit I’ve enjoyed there; the first was an amazing Vivienne Westwood collective. There are fashionistas aplenty in the Bay Area. And, if anything … considering the ad campaign was shot in Hollywood … the West Coast should have gotten some love in L.A. Just saying.
