A gifted young customer

October 14, 2008

Rebecca and her mum Kara have been coming to my store, Peche Mignon, since I opened. It was actually 3 years ago exactly this day, October 14, 2005!

Rebecca’s 12 years old. She’s in 7th grade at Saint Thomas the Apostle in San Francisco. She came with Kara a few weeks ago and bought a prop I was using as a display for my necklaces. I wrapped it in tissue paper and handled it to her in a paper bag.

Rebecca came back last week to show me what she had done with it. She made a dress out of the tissue paper and wrapped it around the prop with a necklace she bought at the store to make it look like a doll. Isn’t that amazing? It’s actually much better than a doll when you realize that Rebecca drew her project first, and then created it. I don’t know many children whith such a creative gift for drawing and creating such a beautiful thing.

Rebecca’s dream is to come and work at my store. I told her that her talent belongs to fashion. This young woman deserves to become a stylist, don’t you think?

Bravo Rebecca!

Our traditionnal Basque espadrilles have arrived!

June 24, 2008

Popularized by Brigitte Bardot in Saint-Tropez in the 1960’s espadrilles are a definite French tradition. Handmade in the South West of France by Artiga, these casual sandals are composed of a flexible rubber sole stitched to a 100% cotton upper. The traditional Basque stripes pattern comes in different bright colors to match your favourite outfits.

 

Basque linens are part of the Basque heritage. The uniqueness of these linens comes from their 7 stripes representing the 7 provinces of the Basque Region: 3 French provinces and 4 Spanish ones. The palette of colors is inspired from the strong regional tones which associate thin and wide stripes, the genuine signature of Basque fabrics. The patterns designed nowadays are a variation of the old mante à boeufs which was meant to protect working cattle from insects.

 

If you live in the Bay Area, feel free to come and visit us at Péché Mignon to try one pair on!  Our espadrilles are available in sizes 6 (36 French size), 6.5 (37), 7.5 (38), 8.5 (39), 9 (40) and 9.5 (41). We also take orders by the phone at (415) 221-6000 and ship anywhere in the US.

Péché Mignon is located in San Francisco, on 147 Clement Street, between 2nd and 3rd Avenue. Our opening hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 11 am to 7 pm, Sunday from 11 am to 5 pm.

 

Thank you!
