Yesterday YSL unleashed the YSL Manifesto for Fall/Winter 2009-2010 across the globe and M.I.S.S. was on the scene in the streets of Manhattan. We were under the impression that the tote bags would be released at Noon. I thought the tents would be a good place to post up since last year they distributed the bags nearby.
We arrived at the tents at about 11:45 to prep for the scavenger hunt that can be the search for the elusive YSL totes. I was early so I went to the corner store to grab a drink. I was in line waiting to pay and out of the corner of my eye I spotted a girl with a YSL Tote! I thought to myself, “What? It’s not noon yet!”
I put down my stuff ran across the street, called M.I.S.S Michelley who was waiting inside the tent, and we made a mad dash to get totes. Michelle got one before me and she tried to wrangle another one for me before I got there but the YSL girls were very strict this year – just a year ago I was able to get 5 bags. Anyway, I got there in time to get one, but by the time I ran a few feet away to stash my bag away and try to get another for M.I.S.S Kim and M.I.S.S. Liz they were all out. The YSL girls said that they would be distributing bags at the YSL store on 57th at 2:30 but when M.I.S.S. Kim’s mom showed up to get her one, there were people waiting for totes, but no YSL girls. At least we got some totes…until next season…
