The Ices of March...Bring Spring Flowers
Back to the Blog... | Post Feedback | Author Bio | Printer-Friendly

Despite last week’s hail storm (beware the Ice of March!), the nip in the air today, and the slush puddles at every curb, it’s Spring. At least that’s what the calendar proclaims. We know it’s a paltry offering, but we hope you can take some cold comfort in reading about springy stuff for the next day or so, as we share fleurs and printemps.

When we think of Pierre Deux, we think of those signature textiles, evocative of the French countryside. They have a distinctive feel, colors, and motifs and are instantly identifiable. They bear names like Avignonet, Indianaire, and Maianenco. No sooner do we conjure up those fabrics, we next think of those wonderful tote and market bags, satchels, and generous duffels, all made with those fabrics, and for which Pierre Deux is well known.

Newest to the Deux famille of fabric and bags are the Pauline bucket bags, bedecked with an oversize, uncharacteristically large floral print against a calming azure or pistachio background. We love the sturdy leather handles, the perfect sizes (priced at $78 and $120), the compartments. (On the left in our shot is another style in bold stripes, dubbed a "beach bag.") Grab them while they are in stock, as they were manufactured in limited editions and could be gone by the time you start to book your first jaunt on the Jitney. 625 Madison Ave., 212-521-8012;
