Balenciaga SS14

I love how both Alexander Wang’s sporty’ish street-wear-vibes, and Christobal Balenciaga’s heritage and handcraft shine through this collection, yet there’s something new onboard + plenty of beautiful details to keep in mind come spring 2014!

Ok, here’s me pretending to be very busy on my phone, if you’ve ever been around any of the fashion weeks lately you would know what I mean.

Anyway, as the jeans girl I am, fashion month or not, I’m most likely spotted wearing denims, so I’m constantly looking for “the perfect” fits and washes. To me it’s important that “skinny jeans” feel like skinny jeans on and not leggings(!), and finding the perfect washed-out-black colour is for sure not an easy task. However these by R13 tick all the boxes, so why I’ve not checked out this brand earlier is a mystery. These are certainly coming along with me to Paris tomorrow, see you all there for fashion week. Bisous!

No rocket science going on here, just a simply everyday outfit of mine, jeans by R13 (here and here), teddy knit by Isabel Marant (here and here), shoes by Chanel, bag by Tod’s, lace-iphone-cover by Marc by Marc Jacobs, and sunnies by Tom Ford.

Alexander Wang SS14

Alexander Wang SS14

Alexander Wang presented one of the easiest-to-wear-collections I’ve seen in a while back in NY, which include many definite sell out pieces(!) for next spring. If you want to make sure to get your hands on “Parental Advisory”  or perhaps the most craved after pair of boxer shorts (my favourite look!), then you can pre-order these items here along with the rest of the collection until the end of the day today.

No matter season and trends, I always come back to the classic pieces, and this season I’ve certainly invested in some of them, like this coat by Stella McCartney, that I after trying on for several seasons, finally decided to strike on. Dusty pink might be huge this season but I personally rather invest in either a black, navy or camel coat, that will last me a long time and not just the coat you wore in 2013.

This is what I wore on one of the London Fashion Week days, before it got too chilly over here. But right now I’m escaping chilly September degrees and hoping for indian summer in Milan, see you all in pasta heaven(!) and wishing you a fabulous weekend!

Dress by Hofmann Copenhagen, cashmere coat by Stella McCartney (in blue here and here), clutch by Celine, diamond necklace by Jennifer Zeuner (here and here), boots by Jimmy Choo (here and here), bracelets and rings by Balenciaga, Ina Beissner, Monica Vinader and De Beers.

It’s hard to keep track, but Milan Fashion Week kicked off yesterday with a sporty’ish hot show by Gucci and today’s Prada at 6 pm CET. Tomorrow however, I’ll be jumping on a flight to Milan myself not to miss out on one of the most anticipated shows this week, Tod’s first ever runway show! The new creative director, Alessandra Facchinetti, will present a complete RTW collection tomorrow at the beautiful venue Padiglione D’Arte Contemporanea, and I can’t wait to see what’s coming!

All things checked

As if I haven’t had other things than cozy knits in my head since my last post and all through fashion week, I choose to follow up with this beauty, fashion consultant Bev Malik, that I snapped the other day, wearing one of  my favourite knits from J.W Anderson A/W 2012. So wish I’d gotten this one myself, checked+mohair+V-neck, all boxes ticked!

This morning London Fashion Week kicked off and I hope to be out the door very soon (it used to be so much easier pre-baby-life!).
Otherwise it’s been a very hectic week, following NYF with a digital eye, I’ve been out and about with work and pushed around the baby stroller in slightly schizophrenic outfits. I’ve also rediscovered my love for a good throw-on-cardigan, which has been perfect to bring along on the run. If it any any point gets warm again(!), I’ll wear it with a small dress and biker boots, the optimist in me hasn’t given up just yet.
Gotta run but Happy Friday Everyone!

Top by Cos, leather leggings by Joseph (here and  here, ), mohair cardigan and shoes by Acne, silver necklace by Jennifer Zeuner, sunnies and bag by Celine and shoes by Acne.

Fall/Winter Coat Picks

Coat Picks Fall 2013-Northern Light-Hedvig Opshaug

Temperatures has dropped over night in London and it’s high time to act coat-wise, we all know the best coats and jackets usually fly off the hangers along the first signs of chilly degrees. My dusty-pink-dream-coat-by-Rochas sold out on the day a few months back, but luckily I’ve managed to secure two other favourites of mine amongst these picks in stores right now.

Tweed coat by Balenciaga, quilted shell jacket by Saint Laurent Paris, wool coat by Stella McCartney, pinstriped wool coat by Mango, pink wool coat Roksanda Ilincic, wool trench by Diane Von Furstenberg, shearling jacket by Acne, checked wool coat by Vanessa Bruno (also here), wool coat by Isabel Marant.

This year has been a year with lots of firsts on my side, being a first time mum and everything that comes with that aside, there’s a major 1st sartorial-wise, my height has dropped about 10 cm lately as I’ve become addicted to flats!!!
The jungle out there of hot trainers, flat sandals, ballerinas and loafers has never been better I’d say, and never before has my collection of flats been compatible(!) with my heels section. Latest specimen to join me are these studded brogues by Jimmy Choo, quirky, cool and comfy all in one.

Today, a totally different story, only suitable footwear are wellies, oh I love you Rainland!

Leather jacket by Joseph (similar here), shirt by Helmut Lang, wool pants by Studio Nicholson, brogues by Jimmy Choo and Chanel wallet.

NY Fashion Week kicked off a few days ago, and unfortunately(!) I’ll not be crossing the pond this time around, but rather focus on London, Milan and Paris. As for now I’ll be following news updates and live screenings like many of you, with todays highlights and live screenings from Alexander Wang, Tibi and Altuzarra, yeah!!!

Looks like my classic black Lanvin ballerinas will be up for some serious competition this fall. A new Saint Laurent ballerina shoe line will launch in November and like so much else (especially shoe-wise) signed Hedi Slimane/Saint Laurent, I will most likely be in on it. This beautiful B&V video is part of the upcoming launch where ballerina Lida Fox takes the lead, shot by Slimane again off course.

Knits knits knits! They still remain my favourite piece every winter season, and apparently I can never get enough of them, something that the ever growing pile in my wardrobe clearly proves. On another note it’s not so strange, I mean, we wear them 9 months a year in the northern hemisphere, and they pretty much go with anything, especially if you’re more of a minimal dresser like me who prefer simple lines and easy-go-to-combos.

With this mohair beauty it was love at first sight, and I will definitely try to squeeze as many looks out of this little investment piece in the time ahead.
Let fall begin!

Denims by J Brand, new mohair knit by Stella McCartney (here, here, here and here), trio bag by Celine, bracelets and rings by Monica Vinader, Balenciaga and De Beers.

The balance

Celine fall 2013 bracelets and cuffsImage in courtesy of Celine 

There’s so much feminine stuff going on at the moment, from t-strapped heels to ladylike bags and circle skirts, that we need  some chunky rawness to balance it all out. Like these bracelets or cuffs in brass from Celine ‘s fall collection, wanted!
