The last few months have been a bit chaotic for me: moving from Connecticut to NY in the USA as well as from Cabo San Lucas to San Jose del Cabo in Mexico. Plus, it’s the peak market season, Paris, NYC and lots of Zoom calls analyzing merchandising opportunities. I have been doing all of this boomeranging between my children’s homes. Let’s just say, I need a horse fix! Clo Intimo just … Read More

Arriving in Paris last week, I visited the stores to get some insight on current Spring trends. It’s a challenge in January in France, as the entire retail apparel industry is on sale obliterating most of the new collections.
