Tiffany & co: drunken driving destroys and icon

This has been an incredibly difficult week for any aspiring socialite. On top of the death of the talented designer Alexander McQueen, early this morning, an off-duty cop drunkenly crashed his car into the storefront of the Tiffany & Co. flagship store on 57th St. resulting in the destruction of an icon. Who can forget the elegantly insane Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s looking dreamingly into the storefront?

I am a great admirer of the iconic sense of the Tiffany’s brand. The mere sight of Tiffany’s trademark blue is immediately recognized and creates the emotions of love at first sight, excitement, and luxury. The quote “Blue is the color of dreams,” that was once used as a tagline of a Tiffany’s campaign reaches to the heart of what this blog stands for. In spite of this tragedy, there is still hope. Everything Tiffany & Co. stands for is intangible and has been captured though Audrey Hepburn in this beautiful opening scene displayed below. There is no doubt in my mind that the storefront will be rebuilt to its original glory and that I will receive a blue box on at least one of the days I am proposed to.
