Chanel’s Reincarnation by Karl Lagerfeld

Who minds a fashion injection in December, and a compote of Pharrell Williams, Chanel and Cara Delevingne, directed by Karl Lagerfeld is as great as it sounds. The almost 8 min short film ‘Reincarnation’ celebrates the origin of the Chanel jacket, inspired by a lift attendant (Pharrell) working in a hotel near Salzburg, enjoy!!!

Flap Bag

Ok, I’m not the greatest fan of “in-your-face-logos”, neither have I ever been in love with “The Boy”. However, sometimes the unexpected do happen, and when I tried on this little hybrid youngster i soft pink (imagine!), I was tempted not to put him back on the shelf. Lord!

This year has been a year with lots of firsts on my side, being a first time mum and everything that comes with that aside, there’s a major 1st sartorial-wise, my height has dropped about 10 cm lately as I’ve become addicted to flats!!!
The jungle out there of hot trainers, flat sandals, ballerinas and loafers has never been better I’d say, and never before has my collection of flats been compatible(!) with my heels section. Latest specimen to join me are these studded brogues by Jimmy Choo, quirky, cool and comfy all in one.

Today, a totally different story, only suitable footwear are wellies, oh I love you Rainland!

Ring-wise this spring was all about stacked chunky golden rings thanks to Balenciaga. My ring inspo for fall are these nail rings from Chanel’s Haute Couture A/W collection, beautiful, but lightyears from being practical, glue anyone?

City life

Getting dressed for days in a boiling overheated city can certainly be challenging. Though I on certain days much rather stroll around in flip flops, kaftan, a tousled hair bun, and no trace of make up, beach life doesn’t really work in the city.

Shorts and shirts have been my way to go, and these embroidered shorts which in fact are beachwear(!), works just as well in the city paired with a crispy white shirt, as on the beach with a bandeau bikini.

Men’s shirt (similar here), new embroidered shorts by Karma, shoes by Chanel (found in sales), sunnies by Acne (here), necklace by Cooee and bag by Celine.

Up North

North of Norway I love you, but this time around you were to far off the seasonal scale, I’m sorry, but no one up there deserves 12 degrees mid July(!).So back on went leather pants, knits and jackets, between home lounging in pyjamas. On another note I got the chance to jump into my new perfectly baggy leather pants for fall, and a splash of new collection Baja by Monica Vinader, like these stacked rings and bracelet which are new seasons favourites of mine.

And oh, don’t forget to enter my joint competition with Monica Vinader, by letting us now what you’d have engraved and why by commenting here or tweeting @MonicaVinader or @hedvigSO using hashtag #MVLights. Only 2 more days to go sweetie pies!

New leather trousers by Ganni (here and here), cashmere sweater by Dries Van Noten (very similar here), shoes by Chanel (sales bargains!), blazer from & Other Stories, wallet by Neri Karra, watch by Tagheuer and stacked Baja rings and bracelet by Monica Vinader.

Not a huge fan of espadrillos, but it’s (almost!) summer outside, and if I could add only one pair of shoes to my collection in this second, it would be these by Chanel, espadrillos-perfectness don’t you think?

New by Chanel

Tomorrow these 3 new spring 2013 colours will hit a Chanel counter near you, and No. 571 Fracas could possible be the exact blue’ish pink colour I’ve been searching for.

December 18, 2012


Nail polish favourites of mine right now are Essie’s nr.487 Berry Hard and Chanel’s old classic nr.18 Rouge Noir, both are perfect shades of deep burgundy with brown undertones and quite similar, but Essie’s slightly lighter which I don’t mind, also stay’s like a rock and half the price of Chanel.

The perfect shade of grey…

… you’ll find in a nail polish bottle by Chanel this fall called Frenzy 559, which I had on my nails while shooting in Paris. It’s the perfect creamy grey polish with a hint of lavender, and if you like me prefer more discreet and nude’ish looking nails, you’re gonna love this one. In stores from 24th of August, join the queue!

The Little Black Jacket

Puuh, you were right guys, moving is not fun at all while you’re in the middle of it, but it will be worth it at the end of the tunnel for sure. While I upload some photos and go through my inbox that haven’t been touched for days here are Lagerfeld, Roitfeld, and SJP’s thoughts about Chanel’s Little Black Jacket during the making of the book project.

Simply bags

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!

Chanel – the making

You’ve probably seen the beautiful Chanel spring campaign by now, where Joan Smalls and Saskia de Brauw perform gymnastics hanging above the sea, seen through the lens of Lagerfeld himself. Here’s a behind-the-scene-video from the shot that took place in Cap d’Antibes, and if you’re not already longing for summer by the sea, this might get you started….
Happy Friday noon!
