A Very Personal Holiday Card

Get your clothes off- the new holiday card inspiration for 2013

This year I received a few holiday cards via the old fashioned highly sexy postal service. However, the absolute highlight was from two of my favorite people in the entire world who are my best friends, style icons, couple inspiration and my all-round general personal heroes, Kate and Daniel.

WHO

Kate Crassweller, Design Director at Calvin Klein and Daniel Stedman, Founder of the L Magazine & Brooklyn Magazine (and the naked guy)

THE IDEA – YOU GOT NAKED. WHY?

KC – I wanted to design a card for the holidays, and was online creating a typically minimalist visual ode to the holidays when Daniel plopped down beside me and said, “That’s boring! Put a picture of us on the card!”. I crinkled my nose at the thought of some cheesy posed photo of us looking happy and twee… but then my mind flicked to an image we created just weeks before on a memorable morning in Big Sur, and I knew it just screamed “joy”, and also “us”. It was also funny and out-of-the box enough to seem cool.

DANIEL, YOU LOOK GOOD WITH YOUR CLOTHES OFF  BUT WHAT DO YOU THINK IT SAYS ABOUT THE TWO OF YOU?

KC – We love it because we really have had an incredible year together, and the image really embodies that joy. Daniel’s uninhibited love of life is infectious, and we get to share that with loved ones. And have a giggle along the way.

DS – My Mom says I should have opened my eyes.

WHO DOESN’T RECEIVE THIS CARD? (apart from sexy loving Sous Style readers..)

KC – We’re keeping it low key: great friends, close family (and Sous Style?!). Some of the more conservative relatives and DEFINITELY colleagues don’t need to get this in their mailbox!

OH AND IS THERE A ‘PG’ ALTERNATIVE?

KC – If I get around to picking some up! It’s enough of a feat that I was organized enough to get these whipped up.

SO WILL THIS BE A LONG SERVING TRADITION OR A ONE OFF? ARE MORE CELEBRATORY CENTERFOLDS TO BE EXPECTED?

KC –  Ahhh… we’ll see what next year brings! Perhaps less nudity.

OK well make sure I’m on the list ;)
