MaiTai Collection in action

Collage #23

In a way, today's post is like a part two of the blog anniversary post from last month, since the Collection was born in the same year as the blog. What better way to celebrate the 10th year of the Collection than with a new collage!

 

The Collection is a dream come true for me. At heart it consists of items I always wished would exist, basically to enhance the pleasure we have from the wonderful things that come in orange boxes! As a scarf lover I longed for scarf rings in different sizes so that they would work with all scarf formats. I found it painful to have to store my scarves in plastic bags when traveling, and thought how wonderful a range of perfectly sized travel and storage pouches would be. Watching the interior of my beloved Hermes bags showing marks and scratches over time, made me think about a beautiful organizer that would protect my bags and more (the bag inserts line holds a special place in my heart, I've been wanting one from the day I owned my first Hermes bag). I am so grateful that through my blog there has been a chance to develop these lines, and to add other accessories too. None of this would have been possible if it wasn't for the support from all of you, my dear customers, friends and readers, thank you all so very much.

 

A very special thank you goes to the fabulous ladies who contributed to this collage. It makes me tremendously happy and proud to see the Collection's items worn beautifully and with style all over the world, and I love everyone's ideas and inspirational looks. Mille merci, dear Anna, Cathy, Cecilia, Célia Jaunat, Csilla, Desert Mermaid, Faux Fuchsia, hanton, Izumi, Jana, Jennifer, Julia, Katja, La Contessa, life.is.fabulous, Malgosia, Manuela, Marla in the OC, Sarah, Terese and Très Chics Boston.
