The Holidays with Kirk and Stephen (and no this is not an ABC special)
Kirk, Stephen, and Fefe Dobson at the S/S 2011 show.
December is a month of many things. Snow. Long line ups at the Eaton Centre. More people leaving Hermes with purchases than without. Poinsettias. HOLIDAYS.
For us at the Greta Constantine studio, holiday is a three-syllable word consumed by work. These include: sample sales, SS 2011 production, FW 2011 ideas, and that's just what we're allowed to tell you (otherwise the list goes on!)
However, I thought this would be the perfect time to have a little peek at what this season means to Kirk and Stephen!
1. This year's Christmas dinner. What will you be having?
K - Turkey, glazed ham, pot roast, cranberries, sweet potato, potato salad, rice and peas, rum punch, egg nog, and Sorrel. The solution to making everyone happy in a big family is always lots of choice.
S – I don’t know. But I’d love her to cook oxtail. My favourite.
2. What was the best gift you've ever received? The worst?
K – The best? Tough to say. It would be my first Christmas in Italy. One of my favourite experiences. The worst? Soaps.
S – My dog Emily. And the worst? Clothes- I never wear them. I find it to be so personal, especially as a designer.
3. Who in your family is the most challenging to get gifts for?
K – Me. They think I have everything.
S – Probably me. That’s why I just tell them not to give me anything!
4. If you could give any gift from Greta Constantine/Ezra Constantine F/W 2010 which would it be?
K – Paolo pants. Love the oversized cargo pockets, the thick wool- very masculine but also very forward thinking.
S – Actually, I’m giving my mom one of the black wool dresses… can’t tell you which one in case she’s looking at the blog!
5. What makes a great holiday party?
K – Alcohol.
S – Fabulous people.
