My friend Sasha introduced me to Gerard Darel’s North American PR rep today and we spoke at length about the line and the lack of merchandise here. We both pondered if the demand would be as hyped up if it were readily available in every street corner!?!? The answer will remain to be seen come next Fall as Gerard Darel bags set sail stateside. She also gave me the lowdown on how Eva Longoria Parker became involved (which will be another entry next week– it’s too long to write here) and a password to the Gerard Darel press page so I can get exclusive photos and info for you! So here are photos of the newest spokesmodel for GD– Mamie Gummer, 24 year old daughter of Meryl Streep and Don Gummer, shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in New York. I find her intelligent and quirky good looks to be vastly appealing, not to mention her mother is my all time favorite actress! The ready to wear is also from Gerard Darel– so retro chic! I bought a few dresses and pants for myself and my god daughter (the children’s line is tres adorable!) Jump for complete Fall Ad campaign!
