Vogue, “Do you clean purses?”
Vogue, “Can you clean a silk clutch with a awful grease stain for tomorrow? It happens to be for a VIP at Vogue.”
Jeeves, “Usually we need more time, but we never say no to VIP’s at Vogue.” (Actually we try never to say no to anyone in distress.)
About an hour later a smartly dressed assistant from Vogue shows up with the purse. It is beautiful and it does have a nasty stain.
Not an easy project when we ask for a week, but one day? And for a VIP.
Well all’s well that ends well. The lads at the Jeeves workshop rose to occasion again, toiling hard into the wee hours of the night. The next morning, when the purse arrived at our 65th Street shop, it looked amazing, all traces of the stain was gone.
A call to Vogue, another smartly dressed assistant arrives with AMEX in hand. name on the card? Anna Wintour. I hope she was pleased.
