Ann-Sofie Back Atelje SS12 – Back SS12

Ann-Sofie Back’s SS12 collection was a follow-up of the clean, fresh looks of the previous season with three themes running throughout the collection, the tiny belt detail, standout darts and the boning details. And on so many shows I’ve seen so far in NY and London, fuchsia or hot pink is included, really a color to watch out for next spring. As usual Ann-Sofie’s design is right up my alley, so effortless chic, sophisticated, unexpected elements and a boost of chunky jewellery and accessories.

The idea behind this collection was based on Jantelagen (a Scandinavian cultural attitude) and if you’re not already familiar with it the ten rules state:

  1. Don’t think you’re anything special.
  2. Don’t think you’re as good as us.
  3. Don’t think you’re smarter than us.
  4. Don’t convince yourself that you’re better than us.
  5. Don’t think you know more than us.
  6. Don’t think you are more important than us.
  7. Don’t think you are good at anything.
  8. Don’t laugh at us.
  9. Don’t think anyone cares about you.
  10. Don’t think you can teach us anything
An the eleventh rule is: Don’t think that there aren’t a few things we know about you.

US Open

Yesterday late noon I took a fashionable break from fashion and rushed to the hotel for a quick change for the US Open single men’s finale. Though I’m not a massive fan of tennis being there was magical and I was cheering Djokovic all way through (sorry to my Spanish readers).

Oki, gotta run again and I’m looking forward to Tibi’s show later today, you haven’t missed out that the Swedish blogger, Elin Kling, is styling it, I’m sure she’ll kick ass!

I wore skirt by Lord&Taylor, top and blazer Acne, shoes and sunnies Celine, bag Chanel and jewellery like before.

Emmanuelle Alt #5

Ok, since I’ve already included Emmanuelle Alt’s covers of Vogue Paris since she began let me introduce you to her 5’th one. This one, a close-up of the Princess of Monaco, Charlotte Casiragh, photographed by Mario Testino. It’s obvious the year of the royals and though she’s a gorgeous girl, and it’s a beautiful portrait, I find this cover pretty boring and would have expected more dynamic….. But I like the hair and make-up though, not the typical glossy-royalty.
