Traveling Salesman

Our John Jay wrote this article for the NY Times blog about Marvin Traub’s new book “Like No Other Career: Marvin Traub”.

At 83, the legendary former Bloomingdale’s chairman Marvin S. Traub still logs over 200,000 miles of travel a year in search for what is new and innovative. As is evident from reading his new book, “Like No Other Career: Marvin Traub” (Assouline), there is no one younger in spirit or more curious in the fashion business. Written in collaboration with the fashion business reporter Lisa Marsh, the 176-page tome is a lively and personal documentation of Traub’s career as a top retail consultant and investment banker since “retiring” from Bloomingdale’s in 1991. The book features messages, drawings and photographs from the fashion-world bon ton, including Yves Saint Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Issey Miyake, Hubert de Givenchy, Giorgio Armani, Diane Von Furstenberg and Ralph Lauren.

True that girl!
Work it.

It’s coming…

With 1 week away from Halloween – Studio is busy preparing for the big day. No, W+K doesn't always need alcohol to have a good time. Every year we open our doors to the public and create a spooky playland for the kids to explore. Dressing up is not mandatory, but it is encouraged. Here we find Christin making a Thomas the Tank Engine costume for one lucky child and Cari busy making a monster display. More to come!

Props to Cari Vander Yacht for the paper cutting skills on the invite.

CALDERA UNDERGOUND 2008

Caldera_posterA

Camp caldera is throwing a fundraising shindig. The Caldera Underground will be an event filled with creativity and an element of absurdity. Mike Henderson along with Wendy Martenson and Lonnie Winter from the studio worked closely with Ken Smith and the fine folks at Caldera to create both a theme and collateral elements for the event. Using elements from Caldera they created a theme that focused on creating an underground forest of absurdity. The event will be held deep beneath the Wieden and Kennedy building on Thursday November 13th at 7pm. Tickets are available and can be purchased by visiting CalderaArts.org, or
calling 503-937-7438.

Rocktoberfest 2008

Those rockers down in the accounting quad threw down one hell of a party at their annual Rocktoberfest. Jello shots, spray cheese, cheap beer, video DJ, Rock Band™ (of course), smoke machines… what else do you need? Thanks for everything except the hangover…
