fashionistas: puma and lydia hearst team up again

June 8, 2007

To those who could not get their hands on the hundred or so limited edition Lydia Bags from earlier this year: fear not. (I’m talking to you, too, Britney.) Puma and Ms. Hearst are teaming up for another round of patchwork bags. (We hope Heatherette will be back to help with the designs.)

This time, they’re making it available to us common folk for $100 a pop. Prior to this, the closest we could get to the Lydia was the company’s Racket Grip Bag (a part of the French 77 line).

DIY: If you’re feeling like you can channel your inner publishing heiress, grab your glue gun and bedazzler, buy your blank canvas, and create your own Lydia. Send me photos!

I wonder if people actually use this bag to carry racquets. What do you think?

That’s Nole, Marat, Gilles Simon, and Arnaud Di Pasquale playing “street tennis” at this year’s French Open adidas booth.


trophy watch: the french do it again

June 8, 2007

The French have done it again. They continue to win my heart with some amazing trophies (the one I rave about, still, is the Paris Masters’ green tree).

The most recent achievement is this Philippe Chatrier Trophy awarded to John McEnroe at the ITF World Champions Dinner on Day 10 of the French.

I’m not exactly sure what that bronzed thing is (is it Phillipe Chatrier?), but I’m glad it’s not a vase or a cup.

READ UP: Here’s your Wikipedia fix for the day.

And if you’ve stared at as many trophy pictures as I have, then this should give you a good laugh.
