Loving the wintery, wrapped up, warm and cozy looks at Alexander Wang’s show yesterday that involved loads of contrasting fabrics and fantastic coats and outerwear. See the whole collection here.
Woop woop, it’s Sunday already and I realize this weekend has passed without me doing anything except relaxing which was heavily needed. It would have been great though with some sunshine to chill along with, but I start to think there’s no point of holding my breath for the latter in London this summer. However in Paris last week it felt like full summer and on my first day there I wore this jungle dream of a leather skirt, paired with my favorite yellow knit, more colorful than the usual me, but a little fun from time to time.
For fall I might feel in mood of a bag in some sort of leopard print, I’m still beating myself a little for not striking on a leopard cabas tote by Celine I came across the summer sales, but this one could perhaps make up for it (at least halfway), this beauty is by Alexander Wang (£961) and can be pre ordered here.
Ok, I know, lots of jumpers and trousers lately, but it hasn’t been warm enough to wear much else. Without sounding too negative I’m actually happy I didn’t stock up many summery things for hot days in the city this spring, how sad would that be, just seeing them hanging there. But I really hope I’m wrong and that things will come around, half summer in and half summer left today.
Anyway, this is what I wore on Saturday, apparently I felt like volume on that day, but I blame the wind for the unintended voluminous wild hair. Silk trousers from Topshop Boutique, jumper from Nowhere, shoes Alexander Wang, bag Celine, bracelets Cooee and Ray Ban’s.
Isn’t funny how we often attach memories to clothes or vice verse? I got these tweed shorts in Paris in early March during fashion week, optimistically I wanted to wear them the following day with the matching tweed jacket. Instead I wore them with black tights, a thick knitted turtle neck, coat, boots and gloves, 2 handbags for umbrella and camera stuff, and I felt like a stuffed michelin man. Though it was a great day back then the memories that got stuck was the bitter icy cold wind and rain. Needless to say that when I jumped into them again the other day it was a totally different feeling, so much more enjoyable, feeling free in the summer heat, and now I’ve deleted my old memory and replaced with my new one!

Hi Guys, the little denim shoot I did last week for Editer is up, you’ll find it here if you’re interested, along comes a 20% discount at Donna Ida.
I put together 4 casual looks with jeans favorites in store and stuff from my own wardrobe. Top: Jeans by Current/Elliott, cotton jumper by Acne, shoes Alexander Wang and clutch from Cos. Below: Marrakesh jeans by MiH, old printed rock tee and denim jacket from Topshop.
As the last couple of days have been a little brighter I’ve felt inspired to dress along with it, like this morning I jumped into an all white look paired with my favorite cape from last year, a beautiful piece that deserves to be brought into daylight more often, don’t you think, personally I just can’t get enough of this icy minty color.
Shirt Filippa K, jeans Isabel Marant, angora cape by Acne, shoes Alexander Wang and bag Celine.
After years in the heart of London surrounded by theatres, traffic, tourists, roadworks and a constant buzz I’m finally settled in a completely different beautiful environment. Looking out of the window seeing a garden with flowers blooming instead of staring straight into a brick wall is just wonderful and that’s one of the things I appreciate the most except for my new bigger wardrobe space. West End was a blast, and I’ll miss it a bit, but bye bye for now and welcome Kensington!!!
Images taken yesterday, I wore jeans and tank by Isabel Marant, knit YSL, shoes Alexander Wang, bag Celine, bracelet Cooee, Ray Ban’s and nail polish Chanel’s June.
Here are some of my favorite bags and details spotted during fashion weeks, some last season, some classics and some new, not very surprisingly I seem to be drawn to Celine’s and Givenchy’s, but who could blame me. Except that I’m very into white bags these days the Obsedia bag by Givenchy has been hunting me for a long time, and I’m tempted to strike…..
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
Yeah, Alexander Wang I absolutely love this! To me his best collection up to date and includes so many fantastic pieces that I don’t know where to start, from the knee-height boots to every shiny surface. It’s still a bit early to say, but I’ve had a feeling that next fall’s gonna be black-white-and red and tailored sharp minimal looks, which I think many of us will welcome after we’ve passed the feminine and pastel colored months we’ve ahead. Again, those lacquered boots, no words needed……
Sorry for lousy posting but I’ve had my hands full here in Oslo so far, I promise to catch up soon. Now, I’m just about to jump into this outfit and head over to the Samsøe & Samsøe show and then party party!
Have a lovely Saturday eve everyone!
New pants and top H&M, racer top by Isabel Marant, sandals and bag Alexander Wang and earrings by Prada.
So far many designers have included black&white looks in their Pre-Fall 2012 collections and Alexander Wang is the latest to join the squad. His pre collection is less street and sportswear oriented than we’ve seen lately and includes tailored jackets, vests, skirts and pants, and again a highly desirable collection of shoes. While many designers recently have taken a step away from androgynity Alexander Wang is still in it and I love him for that, see the whole collection here.
