Once again, leave it to Italy. When I saw this, it occurred to me that there is a GAPING hole in the designer market aimed at retail sluts. People are out there spending HUGE amounts of money on fabulous marble bathrooms with high-end chrome fixtures and Pratesi, Frette or Versace towels that cost a small mint. So why are we falling short on the ass-end, so to speak?
Armani Casa, with its beiges, tans, blacks and grays, could clean up. Literally. Hermes as well, though this is probably too vulgar for them, despite the fact that France is still fascinated with those little jacuzzi’s for “the man in the boat”. They already sell scented drawer liners, for crying out loud. (Set of 5 sheets 16″x24″ is $45)
Then there’s the logo crowd. I can already think of a few people who would wet themselves on the spot if they saw a roll of toilet paper with the canvas patterns of Louis Vuitton, Gucci or Fendi.
So there’s another multi-million dollar idea I should have kept to myself.
