The best thing about having this blog has been meeting or corresponding with new people*, who have included other bloggers, the inventor of Bumpe the Swedish Bull and a fabulous hair/clothing designer. This weekend, I was thrilled to bits to get an email from adorable ’90s designer Christian Francis Roth. I’ve written about him twice:
After reading his email 10 times to make sure I wasn’t having a hallucination, I wrote back and asked him what he was up to. He told me, “I closed my label in 1997 and have been working corporate design jobs for the past 10 years with companies like Nordstrom and Tommy Bahama. I’ve also done freelance creative consulting for Esprit, Anne Klein and Polo.” He’s been a busy bee.
I also asked Christian if he could send me some photos of pieces from his own label. As I’ve said, it’s very hard to find pictures of them online. Well, that’s not going to be a problem anymore!
First, two versions of the famous Rothola crayon dress.
And the Oxygen Tank jacket went for $225.
Back to Christian’s photos. I mentioned the egg-cellent breakfast suit here.
Sure, Yves Saint Laurent did “le smoking” but this is a REAL smoking jacket!

I will have more photos from Christian tomorrow.
