San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 10, 2006
Love shopping? And surprises? Charles and Marie's popular retail format Soupe Du Jour is offering on-line shoppers their own "Secret Santa" service for the holidays.
If pre-ordering October 1st through November 15th, Charles and Marie will send a beautifully wrapped surprise to your home each day until Christmas, beginning December 1st and ending with a bang on Christmas Eve.
Curated by design wunderkind Tobias Wong (Wallpaper* Magazine's Young Designer of the year 2005 and concultant for Prada's epi center flagship store in SoHo) and Josée Lepage, the influential Canadian of Les Commisaires curator for concept stores around the world, the concept is a nod to traditional holiday calendars---the ones that countdown to Christmas by unearthing a piece of chocolate behind a new door each day. But instead of opening a cardboard door, you'll be opening your front door and receiving a gift every day of the week via courier.
In the grand tradition of Charles and Marie, the website deemed one of today's top "messengers of cool" by Time magazine, these gifts will be a curated selection of unisex and "unisize" luxury goods from established and up-and-coming designers from all over the world. Many of the items will not be available with any other offer or via any other retailer.
Charles and Marie's new holiday concept is quite different from Soupe Du Jour's usual format, which, like the name suggests, serves up a different designer ware every day. The products in the Christmas calendar will not be available in the 'normal' Soupe Du Jour offering and are limited to this special pre-order package only.
