Goodbye Lisi Valle

Goodbye Lisi Valle


I received some sad news today in the form of a letter from Lisi Valle notifying us of the discontinuation of her eponymous line. Citing a lack of financial backing and the much-hyped economic downturn, she's been forced to halt production, so none of her merchandise will be arriving this Fall. We're so disappointed because her sweet and elegant silk camis and boyshorts filled a niche in our shop that few others could. Here's wishing her the best in reviving the line in the not-too-distant future!

On a side note, I'd like to express my disdain towards the media for inciting public panic with all their ballyhooing about the economy. It's certainly a relevant topic in cities that have been hit hard by factories closing, subprime mortgage crises, etc., etc. But, at the same time, I really think part of the problem is the constant fear-mongering that leads people to freak out and think their jobs are in danger and stop going about their daily lives. If we all stop eating out, shopping and living the life of the typical American consumer, then yes, there will be trouble. Ok, there's my little tirade for the day. That's all.
