Things we love: typewriters, melancholy romantic writer-type boys, baby blue landline phones, macarons, leis, French singer Soko, and wooden floors painted white. Somehow Kate Spade has managed to incorporate all these items into its second film short, "Seven Henrietta Street," shot by Kinga Burza in London. What's the guy typing? This:
this is the story of a charming girlIn all-caps, though.
she laughs out loud, sings off key and believes in taking chances
she is quick and curious and playful and strong
she lets her imagination run away with her
she has never been one to stick to convention
she is fond of daydreams that take her places
she can order a cocktail in six different languages
she feels that understated is overrated
