Early spring has arrived in London and I wouldn’t have mind jumping into this chillin outfit as we speak for our Saturday walk, yum!
If there was one collection I was really looking forward to this season it had to be this one, Nicholas Ghesquière’s first collection for Louis Vuitton. After being a fan of Ghesquière work over the years at Balenciaga, it’s great to see him putting his signature stamp on Louis Vuitton, whom I bet btw, will get a whole new audience and consumers onboard from now on, sorry Marc Jacobs.
See the whole collection at style.com.
Curious to see what next fall might look like, and by that I mean silhouettes, pieces and styling tip that perhaps at first glance don’t make you want to jump the roof, but when the time gets there, pretty much tick all the boxes you want to channel the next season. From my own experience Pheoebe Philo has this effect on people, sneaking into our unconsciousness, myself included.
For the A/W collection I’m personally very happy the vibrant coloured spray prints are gone (they were short lived anyway), and we’re back to the minimal and wearable Celine we all known. Key pieces are knitted tunics, flared legs, coats-coats-coats, feathers and earpieces, and that twisted hair bun is already on!
Yesterday H&M Studio, the new name for H&M’s seasonal collection of key pieces, presented it’s autumn 2014 show at Grand Palais in Paris. Loads of wearable, femasculine glam pieces on budget, that will be available in stores worldwide from September 4, yeah!
We’ve got a colourful spring ahead of us, but personally I’ll most likely stick to the softer, earthy colour scales no matter what trend forecasts are telling us. Hence these are some airy, springy picks I wouldn’t mind adding to my wardrobe. Perhaps time for a spring clean and book that ticket somewhere humid!
Being a black cat and all I can’t help loving an all black editorial from time to time. Some may say black looks don’t translate that well through images like power colours and prints, but if it comes in a gorgeous B&W package like this it certainly speaks to me, and yes, finding it inspiring too.

Victoria Beckham and team have certainly moved on from figure-hold-in-dresses, and has delivered one of my favourite collections from NYFW so far. Season after season the direction has slowly moved towards the effortless fe-masculine Phoebe Philo-way with a tiny touch of Dries, and this crossing is finding it’s way right up to my street, yum!
After spending a week on the road in Scandinavia I find myself once again looking north-east for inspiration, hereby some of my favourite Scandi picks in stores, yum!
Oversized bulky bags, shoppers, shoulders bags, clutches and backpacks in all their glory, when it comes to a night out or a cocktail party, I prefer to bring along a bag as small as possible, and a mini box bag with a strap is an essential in every woman’s closet. After years of holding on to a clutch on nights out on town, I swear to little box beauties these days, which give you the room for shaking hands, cheering drinks and a free hand for your smart phone, yeah!
After being on the road the whole week for shows in Stockholm and Copenhagen, I’m finally back in a much warmer London with lots of impressions in my luggage(s), so please forgive me for the lack of updates on this space, but it will now turn for sure.
Amongst the shows I attended in (freezing cold!) Stockholm was the H&M global Design Award where the crowned winner turned out to be Eddy Anemian. The French designer who studies at La Cambre in Brussels, presented his 4′th year collection, inspired by Tilda Swinton in the movie I Am Love (Love!) and the French painter Ingres. Except from receiving a cash prize of 50,000 euros, H&M will develop pieces from the collection to be sold at selected H&M stores this fall.
