>> When I said pauvre pauvre Monsieur Mouret, I didn't realize how right I was. Apparently the man is currently on sick leave, suffering from stress about his newfound joblessness. The Telegraph did a wonderful interview with monsieur, making me adore him even more. When asked about his method of draping a single piece of cloth across a woman's body, he replied, "It was like in the movies, when you would see a couple in bed after making love, and there would be the woman, with just a sheet wrapped around her." Pure sexiness.
And when asked why he entered into a business arrangement in which he did not own or even part-own the company, he said, "Because I wanted to exist. You know the story of Faust? You will trust anyone if you want something so much."
But my favorite quote from Monsieur Mouret -- when asked about his future, he said, "I'm Edith Piaf. Je ne regrette rien." The idea of M Mouret as the Little Sparrow makes me melt -- so cute. I miss you already, monsieur, and you haven't even left yet.
