Mykonos for the Wrist

The arrival of summer could not feel any more delayed. Laying my eyes on this Hermès Collier de Chien cuff in the new Spring/Summer 2011 color "Mykonos" makes me yearn for the touch of gauzy white kaftans, the taste of lemony hummus at a rooftop picnic, the smell of the sun.

I don't know if it's just me or the French fashion house's inflated prices talking, but there is a profundity to their colors that is unmatched by other brands. The deep, invigorating azure blue that is Hermès Mykonos does, momentarily, transport me to the warm, salty waters of Greece where my ex-Bostonian friend Eleni is now happily lounging about.

Interesting cuff. The blue contrast against the silver is an eye catcher. I like it.

Anonymous: So sorry if it irked you, but in my defense, I was quick to step aside when somebody needed the mirror I was at, which was just one out of countless mirrors at a warehouse sale which lasted for weeks.

Fuckin' Mirror Hog! On another note I do like the purple reflections but you already know how I feel about this cuff..... Well at least it ain't LV!

Izzy said...

Austin and Brandon: I promise not to mirror-hog no more.. And Brandon, I never noticed the reflections until you pointed it out, but yes that was my only purple shirt and I was wearing it while taking the photo.

John: Funny you still remember! I had to let it go because I couldn't afford it at that time, and last time I checked, it had already found a home. :c
