MONOCHROMATIC

Let's recap London Fashion Week for a second! A fantastic few days with friends and colleagues, admiring work from amazing makers. London is a frontrunner to youthful, innovative and colourful design, and if you make your way past the beautiful Somerset House whilst the circus is in town, you will find a maze of all the colours of the rainbow. And even so, I found myself on the last day of fashion week, jumping in an all monochrome outfit. And then again. Being me, there was no leaving the house without colour, and Folli Follie having so kindly kept me in company during fashion week, this bag went with me on some of my fashion week errands (love how it effortlessly paired with denim too, woohoo).




HAVE AN AMAZING START TO YOUR WEEKEND

CUSTOMIZED STORYTELLERS



LEVI'S SUEDE JACKET / LEVI'S SHIRT / LEVI'S 501 CUSTOMIZED & TAPERED JEANSPRADA SUNNIES / POLLINI BOOTS

After a cold winter that has been dragging on here, I see no better way to kickstart Spring with comfort-wear and a new take on an American icon. Previously worn and customised by denim icon James Dean, you will see no hesitation from my side when it comes to jumping into the newest Levi's 501 CT jeansIt is a poorly kept secret, that I am in a long-term relationship with denim, but may I just point out, that a good pair of jeans provide the kind of love that will last a lifetime. As we, they age alongside with us and carry our life story through rips, fading and the alterations we give them. I'm such a fan of how the new CT styles are tapered (as the name so effectively implies) as one of the significant changes from the classic 501's, and the way they have a lower fit making them sit on the hips. If the rate of how I have been wearing these jeans throughout the week since I got them, you will find my knees with a rip tan for when summer comes!

IN THE WIND

Fashion week is over for this time! That is, London, of course, and many of my friends have already gone to Milan, to continue their work there. I will take a little break in between to catch my breath before taking on Paris Fashion Week, which I am so excited to be visiting for the second time! You know my obsession with denim, so of course this will be coming alongside with my loafers, in case I'm in need of some eye contact.
This was a quick shoot after the last show yesterday, shot by my friend Victor Jones who is one of the most talented street style photographers I know. Always a pleasure, and even had his lovely girlfriend Laura stay at mine during these days! Nothing like when friends come to town, we were munching burritos and slurping matcha latt├ęs (and I still chose to wear white culottes)..

HAVE AN AMAZING DAY

OUT OF OFFICE

As you might very well know, London Fashion Week is on! Days are filled with shows, events, meetings and a whole lot of catching up with those amazing creatives of the industry, that are only in town these times of year. It is getting me even more excited, for when I am heading off to Australia in a month, where I will be spending a good 6 weeks to get a feel for warmer temperatures, and let's be honest.. Someone here needs a bit of D-Vitamin and the kind of granola, that only the Aussies do. I'm getting ahead of myself (just deleted three lines of: "and I can't wait for this and this and this..") and first: Fashion Week!

REMEMBER YOU CAN KEEP UP TO DATE WITH MY UP-TO'S ON INSTAGRAM AND TWITTER! HOPE YOU'VE HAD A GREAT WEEKEND.

HIT REPLAY



VINTAGE MAC COAT / REPLAY SHIRTS / REPLAY JEANS / POLLINI BOOTS / WHISTLES CLUTCH / DANIEL WELLINGTON WATCH / NORDENSTAM RING

There's something about reliving those moments that help shape us the way we are. When someone shouts: "Skinny jeans", it always takes me back to when we first were introduced. When I was turning into a teenager a decade ago, there was nothing I wanted more, than to wear those skinny low waist designer jeans (their status deserved no less than four admirable adjectives). Now, being in a position where I can actually buy jeans, I thank the fact that stretch isn't taboo and that the waist-line trend didn't stay down south - it's so nice being able to bend down, without greeting the whole town, right? With those two very important factors, you're pretty set to sneak out in the middle of the night to go to a concert whilst you're grounded. I don't really think my housemates would go through the trouble of bothering, but for the dramatic effect, let's just pretend! 


Now picture it, armed in stretch and fuelled up by burger and fries, I had a blast of a night out together with REPLAY rocking out to The Cribs in Dalston. I did not get to do this kind of thing as a teenager, so why not now? Karlmond and I were cracking each other up, as where he knew the lyrics, I was left with my improvisational skills, and I am not one to back down for a bit of random singing in public. Teenager or not, it was a fun night with some amazing people, and that is about what it takes to get me into gear of Fashion Week. Let's go!
