Best seller.


I remember when I first started my career as an assistant buyer at Lord and Taylor, I would dread Mondays, not just because of the hangover, but because of all the damn recaps we had to do.  Some days it could literally consume your entire day.  Not only that, you had every vendor you worked with calling you for their reports and if you had a lot of brands, it could really be overwhelming!  Now as a vendor, I hotly anticipate the day to see how well we did and what checked and it can really make or break my week.

Last week, it was resoundingly clear that the Vanquish in Violet Patent Croco was the hands down winner.  In a week, we sold thru over 20% of our inventory, which at retail, in this economy, is utterly unheard of!!  I’ve recently been wearing them myself and in one day, had 2 people stop me on the street, 1 person on the subway and another at a store, who turned out to be the owner, asking where I got them.  What better validation can you ask for?  These things sell themselves!  We’re making new colors of it too.  That’s the cool thing about working in a pretty vertically integrated organization – you can react quickly to the demands of the market.  Actually we’re working on a lot of dope colors of the Vanquish!  Just wait…

For now, get these at Bloomingdale’s – if they’re still there!
