Miniaudière

Box Cluthces2

 

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

Eddy Anemian-Photo by Hedvig Opshaug

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.

Marius and diamonds

There’s always a risk pairing something thigh high with something leather, and choosing pieces to go along with it should be taken with a serious thought(!). In order of not stepping into dangerous territory I skipped the pink jersey top (as if I ever had one!)) and stole my boyfriend’s Norwegian Marius knit , made by my mum, and that will for sure not be the last time.

Just in case you didn’t know this iconic print is a design heritage we Norwegian’s have always been proud of, and that has been reproduced in various ways also internationally that I’m sure you’ve come across.
Happy Sunday Everyone!

Tod’s

05-B

With Alessandra Facchinetti onboard, Tod’s has taken a step up both on ready-to-wear and on the accessory side. The footwear for instance, still classy with a little more edge, or umph you may call it, and we like that don’t we? City sleek, lust worthy buckled and fringed sandals are amongst my favourites, and you’ll find them on Tod’s.com this spring or can be pre-ordered here now, yum!

Footwear-hype of the past few weeks has undoubtedly been Adidas Stan Smith’s after the hype surrounding the recent retro release of the old classics. After wanting a pair of versatile white sneakers for a while, my choice landed on a pair and I’ve practically moved into them, and the rent isn’t bad at all!
Flats are for sure dominating my front shelves in the shoe closets right now, but  perhaps it’s time to jump into them heels again, it’s always dangerous getting too comfortable, and I’m not only referring to heel heights!

BFW and Lala Berlin

BFW A:W 2014-Northern Light-Hedvig OpshaugInstagram @hedvigso

Last week I had the pleasure to go on a quick trip to BFW to see Lala Berlin‘s A/W 14 show which was right up my alley. Urban street wear, knits and prints in gorgeous fabrics with the right amount of attitude and the styling was nailed to a tee!

PS: The coat and the perfect pair of loose white leather pants I wore on the day were Lala Berlin SS14.

Happy Sunday noon you all!
Sorry for not being around much this week but 2014 has been quite hectic so far and it won’t slow down very soon either. A kick-off new year with lots of energy and exciting things in the loop require you to be more organised(!), and if I wasn’t before that’s certainly something motherhood has taught me.

However, juggling being a full time mum with work can certainly be challenging sartorial-wise, and you might just need to grab for your favourite reliable basics (getting dressed in 2 minutes anyone?), yet another reason for investing in great basics!

Tie a knot

Scarves

Scarves as statement details made is revival on Celine’s A/W 12 runway, but this season it’s popping up in many places, and it’s such a nice detail paired with a simple top. I’ve already laid my hands on a few favourites out there myself, and my advice if you want to archive that tight little knot is to go for smaller, squared scarves in silk, twill or delicate cashmere.

Céline’s SS14 campaign is out again fronted by Phoebe Philo’s number one girl (and lookalike!), Daria Werbowy. The visuals of the vibrant new collection are photographed by Juergen Teller (another side-kick apparently), and new model confirmed onboard is Julia Nobis, but it looks like there’s a third as well (?). So folks, better get used to these prints, they will pop up everywhere!

While it seems that it’s freezing cold elsewhere, we’ve had a few days of the cold that inspired me to dress accordingly, bare ankles are not a usual thing in January, but I’m not the one to complain.

Anyway, I’m totally hooked on long coats these days, it’s so convenient to throw on with everything and perfectly relaxed. This old thing for instance I’ve had in my wardrobe forever, and quite to the contrary of my usual longterm wardrobe survivors, this one was a high street bargain years ago.
