Fountain of 30

August 16, 2007 • Magazine


Now I’ve seen everything. While going through my morning purge of junk mail recently… well, I have to say — they got me!

Subject line: Gianfranco Ferre Dies at 62.

My first thought.. "This is old news – who’s emailing something on this subject now?"  Then another quick dumb thought, "Is this something old I never opened..back in June?" An even dumber thought, "Is there a new twist in the case?"

No – they got me! They got me good! I yelped out loud. I had to laugh when I saw what the product was! As if I don’t know where to get this stuff. I never could have predicted that my entire life in the millennium was going to include the daily endurance of hearing a word, and seeing a product that, thankfully, serves no purpose for me, or anyone I know, (at this time at least).

The silver lining in all of this? It made me think about my Gianfranco Ferre wrap top that I bought from Loehmann’s, back in the 90s, in the richest shade of coffeebean brown, with a beautiful hand to the fabric, gorgeous drape and fabulous fit… It reminded me that Ferre was a truly a great designer!
