One styling detail that I’m specially fond of this spring is the belted waist that popped up on more than one runway this season. Whether you like sporting thin or wider versions, it’s a great way to update or restyle any dress, shirt or jumper, and I’m sure we all have loads of them in a drawer somewhere, I’m on it searching for mine!

Our global girl crush and most copied woman in the fashion sphere, Phoebe Philo creative director at Céline, has been awarded an OBE in a New Year’s Honours list, making her one of tree people in the fashion industry to be honoured on the annual register.

You might have seen on this space I’ve been a fan of Monica Vinader’s jewellery for quite a while. One of the main features of the brand, is the “stacking-principle”, which works so well for both bracelets or rings, that can be mixed together making it more personal. Monicavinader.com recently launched a fun ring stacker tool, which allows you to click, drag and rotate, and put together all sorts of combinations, clever indeed!
Altuzarra Pre-Fall 2014, images style.com
Hurra! I’ve been in need for top-up-inspiration lately and just in time, images of the first Pre-Fall 2014 collections are released, don’t we just love capsule collections? Finding myself dreaming of Altuzarra’s clean colour block, knee-length, mules(the heels of 2014!) – looks. All that I wanna wear right now, and we haven’t even got to live through the SS-14 collections with all their prints, metallics, and ethnic hypes yet. The confusion of fashion …
14 British designers have gathered and customised their very own unique Christmas Jumper handmade by Wool And The Gang in partnership with Westfield and British Fashion Council for Save The Children UK. The jumpers are being auctioned as we speak with entries closing today and tomorrow. Unlike other auctions it’s the lowest unique bid that wins the prize, see savethechildren.org.uk for closing times and how to enter. Happy bidding for a good cause!
The coming season is trending towards eccentric statement jewellery, especially big chunky bracelets in all varieties and colours. I personally prefer mine more on the sleek side though, and wouldn’t mind this new addition in the Hermès family, the Attelage bracelet, a minimal beauty in rose gold and silver, yum!
Who’s not in on comfy dressing? Well, I am for sure, and I raise my hand for monchrome dressing too! Totally fell in love with this new set while trying it on (in blue), and I can’t wait to wear it out for drinks paired with heels or with slippers for a chilling look, hereby my picks of the week in stores, by Stella McCartney Resort and the trousers and blouse come as separates.
Joseph is one of my favourite british go-to-brands, and after having had a close-up look at the SS14 collection they will retain their position with polished clean cut silhouettes of high quality. Exciting news to other Joseph-fans is that the label will show on the London Fashion Week schedule for the first time in February 2014, and as a minimalist Scandinavian living in London I applaud that!
Add Norwegian jewellery brand Tom Wood on your radar if you haven’t already. Lust-worthy (!), timeless, solid, unisex rings in sterling silver, gold and quality gemstones (no platings in sight!), are my favourites, but the line also includes necklaces and earpieces, all with an androgynous feel.
