And yes the brooch is a nice touch.
When I was in the Manhattan boutique the place was packed, and the SAs were nice as always but definitely leery about the change of director.
was told that the boutiques expect the sale list early next week, to get ready for the VIP pre-sales. then the general sale should start beginning of june which is when palladium officially kicks off.
i also saw the buy book and can corrorborate @OakGhost when he said that everything is in really limited quantities. there seems to be a lot of different pieces, but not many sizes. so get in early if there's anything you definitely want. I'm debating which red suede jacket to get. the music note will be an iconic collectors item kind of, while the other red one is way more wearable.
chelsea's are coming in both blue and red velvet. satin western shirts are all pretty expensive. lots of great coats. that's all i remember off the top of my head.
