HUDSON’S BAY CEO Jeffrey Sherman is retiring. Speaking of Hudson’s Bay (note the awesome segue)– I love my Hudson Bay blanket which was swiped from my mom’s house. Which means it’s the good kind of HB blanket…worn in and passed down. Which got me thinking…how would I design a snapshot inspired by this one piece? Today’s picks, clockwise from top left:
