I’ve practically lived in my new favorite skirt the last couple of days, it’s knee length, soft black leather, has a slit on the side and it’s from H&M Trend, best budget buy in a long time!
On Friday noon I met up with my dearest friend Johanna at Warwick Avenue and stopped by The Waterways for lunch in the sunshine. I wore a brand new leather gilet that I found on H&M mens department earlier this week for a bargain price, perfectly oversized with rusty details and not so different from the colored gilets in Acne’s fall collection, they come with a 4 digit prize tag though.
Dress Asos, leather gilet H&M, sandals and Bag Acne, sunnies Ralph Lauren and watch Tagheuer.
Did you know that reindeer leather is beautifully soft and delicate and is used just in the same way as cow and lamb leather, well, I have to admit the thought never really crossed my mind before I saw the fall collection from the Finnish designer Heikki Salonen during London Fashion Week.
His collection featured some really nice leather pieces, among them a dress, pants and top and unisex boots and I like the idea that use of reindeer leather fulfill the criterias of ethical and sustainable fashion which I give high scores to, feels so modern in a way.
Unfortunately my camera was on streik that day so here’s all the images I’ve got but you can see the lookbook video below.
Came across this fantastic leather creation at the exhibition at the Somerset House yesterday. The designer Martina Spetlova, recently graduated from St.Martins has several amazing leather pieces in her collection, among them a 2 set in white.
Have a lovely noon folks, I’m heading back to the Somerset House and thank god it looks like a dry day outside.
A quick tip if you’re still looking for a budget alternative for Isabel Marant’s pair of lovely red leather, I’ve posted about it on Flingly.
Finishing off some work now and then maybe a dinner out, or home, that reminds me, I still haven’t shared with you the excellent address I tried on Friday, coming up!
So, an iphone 4 is on it’s way and should be in my hands tomorrow, today has been quite a test being without my phone, feels like someone chopped off my hands and it’s strange to think of the addiction to it when you first get used to it. How did people manage in the old days?
I have to admit I’m still a bit shaken up so I spent the day relaxing in Covent Garden and had a great brunch at Paul’s, their crepes are so jammy and I bet they have some of the best butter in london.

Monday’s have never been my favorite day of the week and yesterday was a typical monday blue. Everything ran in slow motion, maybe not the world outside but at least in me, luckily it all usually speeds up later in the week, which I like!

I met up with Kaz on Old Bond Street today to enjoy the Fashion’s Night out in London. The drinks, canapes and service was excellent everywhere we went but I have to admit I was expecting more tempting offers on a day like this, 10% is ok but it’s not enough to make people go crazy. I ended up climbing into a Moschino Shopper Bag later during the evening so I guess I went slightly crazy myself, I’m fully aware of what irony is about and I’m blessed with some self distance so this one is on me!
My red leather pants have been following me all around the world this summer, unworn, wrapped in silk paper. I bought them a few months ago, planning to wear them with a white top and killer heels during my summer adventures but it was always to hot to even think about wearing them, can you image tight leather pants in 35 degrees.
