"It was like the Elsa Perretti crystal tumbler at Tiffany that was inspired by a paper Dixie Cup."... mmh sorry!! i really don't understand the meaning of this sentence!! it's taken from an interview with Marc Jacobs!! thank you if you understand to help me!!
A Dixie Cup is the brand name of a paper cup product. Apparently a designer named Elsa Parretti was inspired to create a crystal tumbler (a type of drinking glass) from looking at a Dixie Cup. The crystal tumbler is sold at Tiffany's, a very expensive jewelry store in New York.
