Sorry London

Northern Light-NY

According to the Global Fashion Capital Index, NY and Paris are declared more fashionable and fashion friendly than London, based on stats from 2013. After two years on top of the list, London now has to handle over the crown back to NY, who’s closely followed by Paris, sorry London!

Art Pen

A great liner is part of my daily routine, a routine that has shrunk down to 5 min after becoming a mum. One personal favourite in the jungle of products out there is this art pen by Dior, it lasts all day and last but not least, the most unskilled make-up hands can apply it, super easy! Yours for £23 and you’ll find it here.

Though I’m a pretty black cat I love wearing whites, especially this time of year when we’ve survived the darkest season and only brighter days are ahead. It’s wonderful isn’t, that days already are getting longer, and if you’re a real optimist you can already start looking for signs of spring, well, I guess the latter would depend on you geographic though.

Anyway, white leather pants are essentials to me this season, and these baggy specimen along with this shorter version of my grey coat (that I’ve practically been living in), and these Monica Vinader diamond rings, are all new wardrobe favourites.

Happy Monday morning to all of you and don’t forget to enter the £500 Monica Vinader give away below, only a few days left now!

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!

H&M Design Award

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.
