A lesson from men…

Umbrellas - Farfetch- The Northern Light

After many years in Rainland I’ve spent unknown amounts on rather cheap, not functional, nor good-looking, emergency umbrellas, who all happened to be just that too, not lasting much longer than the time to get transported away from the momental heavy rain attack, or being left behind and forgotten about shortly after. Maybe splurging more on a luxury upgrade would last a whole lot longer, incorporating it in your outfit sort of way. I would certainly think twice before leaving stylish investments like these above mindless behind, a lesson from my most stylish male friends…

You’ll find a great collection of stylish, timeless and genderless, works-with-everything umbrellas on Farfetch.com, officially on my wishlist! Umbrellas by EtroAlexander McQueen and Swims above, ranging from £47 to £495.

A-list

Hedvig Opshaug - Northern Light- 25.07.2015-1

Hedvig Opshaug - Northern Light- 25.07.2015-2

Being a total knit nerd and a lover of “one pieces”, any well shaped dress that comes in the softest cashmere are to me clear favourites and certainly dominating on my wardrobe shelves. They’ve become my go-to’s on early morning drop offs, and any other occasions when the level of creativity hasn’t peaked, along with late evenings out. At the end of the day I’m a comfortable dresser, and what could compete with cosy knit dresses? This cosy A-shaped piece have been around since June, but still available in stores, a total keeper!

Cashmere dress by Proenza Schouler (also here, here and here), boots by Saint Laurent (in black here), bag by Balenciaga (also here), diamond rings by Monica Vinader and DeBeers, and gold necklace by Marlene Juhl Jørgensen.

After it was announced a few months back that Alexander Wang would be leaving his creative director role at Balenciaga, it’s been speculated who would be the successor.
Georgian designer, Demna Gvasalia, behind applauded Vetements, was this morning announced as Balenciaga’s new creative director and is expected to show his first collection in March 2016 in Paris.

Alexander Wang showcased his last show for iconic Balenciaga last week in Paris, and he ended his 3 years at the helmet with his best collection to date. See the full collection here.
