Baby, it’s getting cold out there, and it doesn’t exactly encourage chic day dressing on the go. Hiding under layers-and-coat-season has officially landed.
Anyway, like always at this time of year, I play around with my coats and outerwear to avoid seeing the same reflection staring back in the mirror, and like always the easiest trick to me, whether it’s trending or not, is to play around with belts and shapes while waiting for those milder, sunnier new season days ahead, it’s worth the wait…

Alessandro Michele appointed at Gucci

After weeks of speculations, Gucci, and parent company Kering, has confirmed Gucci’s new creative director, Alessandro Michele, succeeding Frida Giannini.

“After a considered and thorough selection process, Alessandro Michele has been chosen to assume the role as Gucci creative director, based upon the contemporary vision he has articulated for the brand that he will now bring to life,” said Marco Bizzarri, president and chief executive officer of Gucci according to WWD.

Based on Alessandro Michele’s speed delivery and results on the menswear runway a few days ago we can certainly feel there’s a new wave of Gucci coming.

Updated Levi’s 501

Levi's 501-Net-a-Porter

Who doesn’t love a pair of “mum-jeans”, and I dare to say that none does it better than good old Levi’s. The iconic 501 will now come with a few adjustments, straighter in the waist, smaller in the seat and a more tapered fit, which to me sounds even better. You’ll find the new capsule collection in 3 different washes exclusively at Net-a-Porter on 2’nd of March, add that to your calendar!

New Year Resolutions what?
I’ve learned over the years not to waist energy on pinpointing down a list of a better version of you. But detoxing, getting more sleep, be more organised universally, and getting a new gym membership, would certainly be on mine, for then never really to be fully fulfilled.

Reality is, week 2 in the new year, a far cry from a gym and green juices, and I actually just now unpacked my holiday suitcases, but it’s ok, rest of society seems to have a slow start too. However I’ve managed to marathon through my old Sex-&-The-City-Box, something I’ve wanted to do for years, and in there between Cosmopolitan’s, hilarious girl talks and outstanding Carrie Bradshaw outfits I found inspiration and old memories. They say many ways lead to Rome.

Louis Vuitton – Series 2

For Nicolas Ghesquière’s second campaign for Louis Vuitton he has yet again brought along the the legendary photographers Annie Leibovits, Juergen Teller and Bruce Weber to illustrate each artists vision of the SS15 collection, brand and story.
“Series 2” as a follow up on last year’s “Series 1” is nothing but beautiful, and sometimes a beautifully captured video accompanied with the right tones bring a vision more to life than anything. Enjoy my favourite video this season by Bruce Weber fronted by Louis Vuitton’s new heroine, Jennifer Connelly.

Happy glorious 2015 everyone!

Instead of presenting you another recap of how 2014 performed in the sartorial world I choose to look forward instead, what has been has been, and there’s little point of repeating what has already been said and done.
Though 2014 was pretty awesome I’m gonna work for 2015 to be an even better one, in every way.
So let’s get started shall we, time to roll up those sleeves, and kick off this new year!

Frame Denims, cashmere jumper by Gucci, velvet blazer by Saint Laurent, cape by Burberry (similar in shearling here), bag by Saint Laurent, belt by Acne (similar here), watch by Larsson & Jennings, boots by Tabitha Simmons.
