My local LeSportsac store (NYC – Soho) called me today and told me that they had 3 Tokidoki spring prints in already! I just went down there and was the first one to buy one, right out of the shipping box.
I bought a Pirata Ciao Ciao:
They also had the black & white Adios Star print and the plain white Bianco print. LeSportsac Soho did not get the L’Amore print in, and said that they did not think that any LeSportsac stores would be receiving it at all. A series of e-mails from my friend and I to LeSportsac customer service got these responses:
“Thank you for your interest in the tokidoki for LeSportsac bags. We are producing the Amore print in question and it will be shipping to stores starting 3/25/07.”
“Apparently only department stores such as Bloomingdales and Macy’s will carry the L’Amore tokidoki print.
Thank you for shopping LeSportsac.
Customer Service Department”
They also added that:
“There will also be new prints for Summer 07, Fall 07 and Holiday 07.”
… so be prepared for another full year of Tokidoki bags! I can’t wait for the L’Amore print to be released!
