I was at Barney's yesterday and spoke with Sheryl who gave me a bit more information about the event. It will be held October 29-30th. A Paris painter will be on-hand to discuss colour choices with you for your initials, stripes, or personal logo. The bag will then be sent to Paris with a turn-around time of 4-6 weeks.
I just saw an ad in the paper for this! It reads, "Customize your Goyard with the symbol or silhouette of your own design. Traditional stripes and monogram also available. Beverly Hills, Fri 10/29 12 - 5 pm, Sat 10/30 12 - 5 pm. 310-276-4400 x5593."
Hey guys! Sorry I've been MIA - internships, school, and work are interfering with my Goyard forum time! Anyways if any of you are in NY and think you'd like a Goyard piece with a silhouette OF YOUR CHOICE (I cannot emphasize enough how awesome this is) I'd def recommend going. Call Barney's to make an appointment to meet with the painter.
I have an appointment for Saturday and I'm super excited! Quite a few of my paper-writing and midterm study breaks have been spent searching for the perfect shape/symbol/special something to have silhouetted. I'm planning on getting a Senat pouch (for pens and pencils) in the second smallest size, color not yet decided, with my initials and the silhouette underneath.
I'm attaching more details for you Sheryl from Barney's NY emailed them to me.
If more people on the forum go to the event we should open another thread dedicated to our one of a kind silhouettes!
*Note: one of the ads has the NY dates wrong - the event is Fri, 29 Oct - Sat, 30 Oct.
Also if anyone has any questions please PM me! I have papers and midterms this week so I probably won't be checking the forum until Thursday afternoon, but I get email notifications from PMs :) thanks!
You can get anything? ANYTHING? This is way too much pressure. Just thinking about what colors to get stripes and/or initials is enough to put me over the edge. EDIT: I called Barneys to let them know I was coming, and Sheryl gave me pricing for the custom designs- it starts at $764 a silhouette or simple image, and goes up in price for complexity.
