The designer: Geren Ford
Best holiday memory: Wandering 5th Avenue in the snow with my dad late at night after ice skating at Rockefeller Center. He lived downtown so Rockefeller Center seemed like a movie when I was little.
Favorite holiday movie: It's a Wonderful Life.
Best present ever given: A perfect vintage Rolex.
Holiday shopping: get it done early, or last minute: Late now that I have the company and I love it!
What present are you hoping for this year? Time off!
Favorite holiday tradition: Long languid dinners with my favorite people on the planet.
Most annoying holiday song: For this one I actually consulted with Jennifer Hawks (who the collaboration was named after—she's a big shot in the music industry and has a special disdain for holiday songs): "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire!!"
Best New Year’s kiss: The turn of 2000 in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower in paris while it sparkled and the streets were jammed with millions of people.
Favorite things about the holidays: The turning of another year. It's always a marker for me and for whatever reason I grow much more still in December than the rest of the year. It's a nice change. The quality time spent with my close friends. My grandma's chocolate walnut fudge!
