HOLLYWOULD’S HIATUS: If you’re looking for Holly Dunlap, you won’t find her in Hollywould. The founder and creative director of the contemporary footwear, accessories and dress brand owned by Kellwood Co., writes on her Web site, hollywould.com, that she has officially gone surfing, dancing and possibly even writing a book. “After nine years of lots of work and loads of fun, Hollywould and I are taking a nice long vacation,” Dunlap said. “In 2009 you may find us surfing off the beaches of Brazil, skiing in the mountains of Switzerland, sailing near the shores of Italy, and sunning on the sands of Palm Beach, and wherever we are, we’ll be thinking of you.”
The statement said the brand could resurface soon, if it finds new backers, as Kellwood said in October that it was hoping to sell the brand. “When will we be back? Maybe very soon, but hopefully not until we’ve had time to master our surf & snowboard skills, write at least one book, learn at least one new language, visit at least three exotic places, and learn how to dance the tango,” Dunlap writes.
It looks like it could be a while.
