1205_Casablanca_Rico_130410_493

Once you feel, admire and wear this whimsical scarf, you will realize that it is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

This 1205 Casablanca Scarf was named after the 1942 film, and it is just as much a classic as the Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman film.

The accessory is priced at a $12 wholesale, and remember, styles $12 and below require a minimum order of two per color, or $200. The Casablanca scarf is available in  denim (pictured), black  and zinc (green). It is 20″ by 37″ slub rayon with combed fringe.

1209 Studio Scarf is its name, bold, angular graphics is its game!

This vibrant scarf, composed of mustard and brown colors, perfectly assorts lines and triangles to create an extremely attention-grabbing print.

The scarf is fresh from the Fall 2013 Zazou Collection, and wholesales for $12. It is 20″ by 75″ slub rayon with combed fringe.  Aside from the mahogany color palette that is pictured above, this scarf is also offered in onyx, which involves a dark blue and grey.

Whereas most scarves are thick and chunkier to protect the wearer from the elements, this 1210 Morning Glory Scarf is thin, broad and delicate. It maintains the ombre effect, as light blue at the top becomes dark blue, then finally turns into a soft green.

This piece from the Zazou Fall 2013 Collection wholesales for a mere $14 and is 20″ by 70″ slub rayon with combed fringe (the fringe is microscopic in comparison to the dipped knit scarf!). The lovely wrap comes in three different colors: sage (shown), sand and blue.

Both intricate and ambiguous, the cream, maroon and violet patterns swirl effortlessly around the fabric of this 20″ by 75″ georgette scarf. It is hard to decipher what exactly the print entails, but it is incredibly simple to see how beautiful and eye-catching it truly is.

This 1227 Indochine Scarf, a member of Zazou’s Fall 2013 collection, wholesales for $12 and was inspired by temples from the depths of the jungle.

The accessory is offered in crimson (shown), shadow blue and spice. The latter has more brown and beige coloring.

This Autumn-inspired, orange and brown ombre scarf has fringe and fierceness for days! Where some scarves utilize only an inch or two of fringe, this scarf, from the Fall 2013 Zazou collection, has nearly a foot of fabulous fringe, giving it an air of playfulness.

This 6199 Dipped Knit Scarf wholesales for $18 and is 8″ by 87″. It is characterized as a butterknit with long fringe (you can say that again!). It is offered in cinnamon/brown (pictured), grayed denim, plum/cabernet and blue.

In a galaxy far, far away, there was a spectacular scarf company known as Zazou.

Zazou was smart to invest in scarves, because everyone, may they be a spaceship pilot or a Jedi warrior, needs to stay warm, and a scarf is the perfect accessory to do just that.

As you may have guessed, this most recent addition of “Scarf Stars”  focuses on the one, the only, “Star Wars.”

In 1980, the second “Star Wars” film was made by George Lucas. It was “Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back,” and one of the settings within its famous plot is that of the icy planet Hoth, in which white snow constantly falls from the sky and blankets the ground below.

While traveling in Hoth, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford) must brace the cold by wrapping themselves in thick coats, goggles, caps and scarves.

In the end, however, even the warmth of their thick scarves and clothes cannot shield them from the snowy tundra. All that can save Luke in the end is the cozy, albeit gruesome, innards of his Tauntaun. Desperate times call for desperate measures, as they say.

Later in the film, in the warmer comforts of the Millennium Falcon, Solo dons another scarf, which keeps his hot head attached to his neck as he screams at the ever-startled C-3PO (Anthony Daniels).

My lovelies, by the end of today, I will have completed no less than 111 hours of my internship!

It seems like only yesterday I was driving from a showroom presentation at the California Market Center to be interviewed for Sterling Styles and Zazou!

All right, all right, enough reminiscing, let’s get down to business!

Today has already been a hectic day. Before even coming into work, a firetruck and ambulance came to my house because my brother was possibly bit my a spider. He swelled up like a balloon and was covered in red rashes. Luckily the paramedics said he was going to be OK, and with that assurance, I started my car and drove to work, where I sit here typing now.

Today I have made necessary alteration for the Pinterest board Zazou and Sterling Styles has utilized through NYNOW365, which is in correlation with the NY showroom the two brands will be presenting at later this month.  I also plan on adding more images to the pin boards so everyone can see even more of the fabulous Zazou and Sterling Styles merchandise.

For the rest of my shift, I will work on improving the Sterling Styles Retail website, call potential customers, work on this Zazou blog, create storylines for Zazou Fall collection and lastly, I hope to make a detailed binder filled with information any future Zazou interns will need to thrive in this position. For example, I will provide the urls of any sites, with their corresponding usernames and passwords.  There is so much online information, including this blog, that future copy writers will need to access.

While creating the online promotions and spreads, I utilized skills from AMM 270, Visual Merchandising and Store Design.

As always, wish me luck and have a great day my little zebras!
