It's a documentation of my last night out (at the Cinco De Mayo party at the photo studio at Chelsea Market with friends Uli, Nadine and Briscoe Savoy) before I got my door kicked in by one of the biggest Flu's I've battled in years... I hate to sit in the bed and do nothing! But we are lucky nowadays: once the headache is over we can happily sip our organic peppermint tea from Traders Joe's (my late favorite is the African Rooibos tea) and take the laptop on our lap (it's one of those rare occasion this is actually comfortable) and keep on working, until we drift off into the next little nap dream :-) it's all good! See you soon!

- New York, NY, United States
- Just like the rare Swiss mountain flower Edelweiss - a symbol of prestige and distinction - the clothing brand IDILVICE (pronouced "Edel-vice") was born in the mountains of Switzerland and since then it's flourishing on the concrete of Manhattan and recently even in the rolling hills of the San Francisco Bay Area. However as the spelling indicates, the label is not meant to be associated with too much folkloric alpine tradition, but rather and probably in the contrary, with unconventionality. The IDILVICE label was founded in 1995 by Swiss Native fashion designer Idil from the city of Saint Gallen, Switzerland, who's foundation dates back to the 7th Century and which became famous for their quality textile products, especially embroidery textiles, which are still popular with Parisian Haute Couture designers today. In search for something less traditional, Master Graphic Designer Idil ventured out to New York City where she fell in love with American Pop Culture.
