Earlier today in a post entitled "Rodeo Drive" I told you about a package that had arrived with a Rodeo Drive return address.
I also told you there's no one home to open it! And that Ester and I are on pins and needles, dying to know what's inside!
What I failed to mention is the name of the shop.
You see, the package (addressed to the Mister) is from the House of Bijan - renowned haute couture for men.
This boutique is so exclusive you can't get in the door. Literally!
It's by appointment only, and I have a feeling designer Bijan Pakzad himself decided who might cross the threshold. While his client list is not well publicized (except by the paparazzi, of course), he's said to have dressed over thirty heads of state, including US presidents, European Royalty and the rich and famous from all walks of life.
In addition to couture, he's also known for his fragrances, sold in major department stores worldwide. And he has a line of exquisite jewelry and watches for both men and women.
To top it off, he also designs the exterior and interior of custom-made Rolls Royce's and Bugatti's on a per-client basis. How awesome is that?
Here's a link to Bijan's amazing world. And get ready to be enthralled!
More than once, even by the designer himself, the House of Bijan has been billed as "the most expensive store in the world!"
And then you'll understand why Ester and I are so agitated! (lol!)
Again, thanks for stopping by today.
Will let you know what's in the box the minute the Mister gets back next week.
PS: You may know that Bijan, as he liked to be called, died just recently in 2011. But his legacy and shop lives on, under the direction of his partner and the world-famous designers who continue to showcase their wares in the inventory.
