I’ve always been on the hunt for the perfect chunky scarf that has the soft cashmere touch but still has enough hold not to fall flat around the neck. Well, I’ve found them in my motherland Norway, by Holzweiler Agency, blends of wool and cashmere, made in Italy, and comes in a range of sizes, prints and and colours, in the pocket friendly price range of €109-€135. I’ll start wrapping mine over my shoulders with a belt ala Burberry as soon as temperatures allow it, yum!
I’m personally a big fan of Ryan Storer’s new collection which involves clean, bold, yet understated pieces with Swarovski pearls. Fine jewellery really is peaking at the moment, which also goes for their amounts of carats and price tags, but these pieces come more pocket friendly for sure. This Rhodium earring for instance is yours for £160 and you’ll find it here.
Great news for your wallets ahoy! Joseph Altuzarra has teamed up with the US high-street chain Target with a capsule collection including some sleek, feminine, tailored Altuzarra pieces and accessories that oozes power, starting from £25. My bet this collection will fly, available on Net-a-Porter in September.
If there’s one accessory I’ve been searching high and low for for months is the perfect single statement earring, as seen on Celine’s A/W 14-15 show back in March. These specimen above by Louis Vuitton and Celine tick all the boxes, and would possible dig deep holes in your pockets too, but wanted oh yes!
August, I’m not sure what happened, but I guess losing track on time is a good sign when you’re holidaying, and that explains my absence here lately, amongst technical problems that resulted in several Mac-attacks for a while.
Well, I’m kicking off my August (and may it never end!) with my love for diamonds and personalised jewellery. As you may have noticed I’m a true fan of subtle pieces, and practically wear them every day, some which I never take off, same goes for my little girl. Though I’m a minimalist at heart my weakness are diamond pieces, and if I ever get close to over-accessorise I blame my love on them sparkling little things that I love combining with other special engraved pieces, #MYLOVE for those who might have noticed already.

Being a knit-kinda-girl I’m super excited about all the fabulous knit options and statement pieces that will rule this coming fall and winter. Can we ever get enough of oversized long-sleeved soft turtlenecks, me think not, and I’m more than tempted to go for an all knitted set too, yum!
Celine, Phoebe Philo, Daria Werbowy and Juergen Teller seem to be a an unbeatable foursome, and for the 6th time in a row they once again come out with a strong campaign featuring some of fall 2015 most wanted pieces and look,s fronted by Daria looking gorgeous as ever. Sign me up for this earring please!
As for Nicholas Ghesquiere’s first campaign for Louis Vuitton he took onboard no less than three iconic photographers, Juergen Teller, Bruce Weber and Annie Leibovitz. The campaign features cool beauties like Charlotte Gainsbourg, Freja Beha, Liya Kedebe and Jean Cambell and some of fall’s most sought after items, stay tuned.
NY based Swedish blogger Elin Kling and partner, Karl Lindman, are the creators behind the new luxury leisure brand Toteme. Their first collection includes ready-to-wear pieces that embodies the above synonyms along with effortless, breezy, sporty-chic, with great price points, and we love that don’t we. You can find a selection here as we speak, yum!
French-Italian designer Giambattista Valli, will be launching a new more playful line at Milan Fashion Week in September called Giamba.
“All my friends call me Giamba, and the moniker reflects the spirit of this new project. It’s another side of the same coin, another collection that runs in parallel with the designer brand, one completing the other,” Valli told WWD. “There is also a playful, underground and sexy side in me and in my designs that you will see in the Giamba line. I’ve been thinking about it for a while and waited for the right time, and now it’s matured. I am really very happy.”
