Barry mon Amour

Turns out that we’ve done quite a few crazy things back in the day (and today, when I come to think of it). Once we invited a cow (named Corinne Mauch, no kidding) to our flagshipstore in Zurich. Then we printed our own newspaper. And today we will share with you one of the cutest of our shootings, dating back to 2007, and featuring an adorable Saint Bernard dog.

In Switzerland, there is one Saint Bernard whose name every child knows; his name is Barry and he was trained to recover people that were trapped in avalanches. He lived from 1800 to 1814 and is said to have saved the lives of over forty people.
