Stationery is one of my biggest indulgences. I have different kinds to suit my mood or the occasion, so I like to think it’s okay to have a wardrobe of stationery. Benneton Graveur, the legendary Paris stationer, is known for turning out beautiful and elaborate cards. Marc Jacobs had a drawing of his dogs made into stationery there; I ordered my first daughter’s birth announcement with them and splurged on some cards with our address in cursive when I was first living in Paris. Soon after, I discovered the chic Olivier de Sercey down the street from our apartment on the rue du Bac, which is where I get a lot of mine. I also once ordered monogrammed Smythson cards, with envelopes lined in hot pink tissue, which I still love. And I was excited to hear that Louis Vuitton has started a custom-stationery service! The classic cards come in great brown boxes—and make the best gifts. And the W editors turned me on to Mrs. John L. Strong, who made me these cherry cards and who seem to be able to do anything. I was thinking their gold-firecracker motif would make a nice card, but I should use some of the others up first…Follow Us:
