I had lunch yesterday with Michelle Goad, Merchandiser of Marc Jacobs Collection Accessories, and we talked, among other things, about these Monique Péan earrings which are made…wait for it…from the bones of wooly mammoths.
I’m obviously curious about how a designer goes about obtaining ivory from a species that hasn’t walked the earth for about 12,000 years, and I’ll work on that. But in the meantime, I had to share the consistently candid and cute Michelle’s reaction:
“They look like banana chips, basically! They’re so cool.”
