Brunch with my favorite person Katarina at my favorite lunch place Le Moulin de la Vierge in Paris is never a bad idea. Nothing makes me happier than laughing and borrowing her new sunnies from & OTHER STORIES.
A sunny Paris and a stroll in Jardin des Tuileries, suddenly I enter a magic forest made out of cardboard cutouts trees. The settings for ELIE SAAB‘s fall show was like another world and once Karlie Kloss opened the runway the silence went immediate. Enchated by Saab’s flawless leafy chiffon, leafy embroidered macro lace, leafy flowing fox fur and leafy appliqué leather — yeah you get the deal. Among pants cut high, skirts full, hair out and effortless French chicness, this makes me want to wear only a leather jacket with a gown on any regular day, just as in the fairy tales.
A close-up on Sunday’s accessories!
Sneak printed bag by MARC JACOBS (from the SS2011 collection), suede slingback by GIANVITO ROSSI and my classic jewelries.
Sunday was pretty SUPER in several ways. ELIE SAAB show, +18C and this amazing new sweater from & OTHER STORIES that I paired with my mirror sunglasses from SPEKTRE, snake printed bag by MARC JACOBS, slot culottes from ZARA and suede stilettos GIANVITO ROSSI – that I still can’t walk in due to my back accident. Thank God my boyfriend acted driver and PA.
Earlier this weekend, somewhere around 10-ish, the sun was blasting and street style photographers were in common order perpetuating their fashionistas’ catwalks to the catwalk. Meanwhile backstage, Tuomas Merikoski with others’ latest brand AALTO were about to walk down the podium. A rare and refreshing sight in Paris’ else so hardcore haute gamme fashionscene. Tuomas, who is also the creative senior designer for LOUIS VUITTON Men, showed the Modettes what Scandinavians do best – to capture a strong fashion aesthetic that connects fashion, design and art into one place. What can I say more than I’m a proud Scandie that can’t wait to get my hands on the beige terry towelling dress.
Finally I’m taking my first real steps, yet with pain, however it somehow feels amazing. Talk about missing the fresh air, ticklish sun and frisky wind. This morning my friends thought it be a good idea to come and meet some people and join fashion week (five days in). My boyfriend and I managed get over to the quay next to Pont des Invalides pretty smoothly and once there we saw the new brand AALTO‘s fashion show.
I’m wearing a dress faux leather from ZARA, wallet bag from SAINT LAURENT, bow bag from VALENTINO RED, tights from WOLFORD and court sneakers from LACOSTE L! VE.
Monday has almost gone by and I’m already in bed. Ready to hit the dreams but first some inspo! On my way back home from work today I sat on the subway scrolling on my iPhone for inspiration and I found some from two weekends ago, when I was in Paris. Right after that I went over to my never ending passion, who never disappoints me when it comes to generating new influences. I’m of course talking about Pinterest.
Thus, today’s inspiration comes from exotic wild flowers, newly awaken kitty cats in leopard, breakfast at Le Fumoir with my bad boy, deco mirror from my favorite interior store on Rue Montesquieu, backstage at Giambattista Valli and then me taking a stroll at the Louvre in my MAXMARA city coat, black jeans from FRAME DENIM with an envelope clutch from GIVENCHY and boots from & OTHER STORIES.
A post-Happy Valentine’s Day from me to you! My boyfriend gave me this fantastic KENZO dress on Saturday, isn’t she dramatic? I will get you a photo in color soon but for now imagine strong yellow with hints of black and white, which I paired with pointy PRADA pumps and an envelope clutch from GIVENCHY. Probably the nicest gift ever. Still touched. Hope you had a fantastic heart-weekend too!
Beckmans x Carin Wester A Film by Karin Bellander, Veronika Larsson and Sara Rutberg. “Our two characters share the space through a split screen.

Make-up wise there where few surprises at London Fashion Week, the no-make-up trend with a 90’s twist was big here too. Luckily there are always shows that stands out a little extra and this season the once I picked out all had something in common, black details! Giles Fall 2015 At Giles Fall 2015 the girls looked […]
Beckmans x Filippa K A Film by William Hesseldahl, Stephanie Abdullah and Maximillian George. “The story is told by cross-cutting between two different locations at different points in time. In the first, a woman is running away and in the other she is chasing after someone. The stories converge as the plot unfolds. Stephanie Abdallah, Maximilian […]
Now that Milan Fashion Week is over, we wanted to list the most memorable looks from the shows. Dresses, jackets and headphones – take a look and let the jaw drop! This patchwork fur coat from Salvatore Ferragamo definitely cached our eyes. Speaking of patchwork fur coats.. Here’s one in from MSGM. Are we the only ones […]
Oh, Dolce & Gabbana how I love how the two of you portrait mothers! Because that is what Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2015 was, a celebration to mothers. Classy, sexy, elegant and very feminine mothers. A winged eyeliner and red lips a messy undo with hair accessories. We have seen it before but it never […]
Missoni followed the stream this season and did as all of the big names – aimed for the seventies. While the others took inspiration from the fashion, Missoni Fall 2015 really reminded us of the interior colors and the retro furniture. The colors looked like they were taken straight from a sofa in a retro […]
Did you know that coconut oil is anti-viral and anti-fungal? That is actually supports healthy metabolism and promotes weight loss? I knew that, but I didn’t know it is because of 3 fatty acids Caprylic Acid, Capric Acid and Lauric Acid. And I didn’t know that our body converts lauric acid into monolaurin that can […]
Alberta Ferretti Fall 2015 made an extended version of Wednesday in The Addams Family. Girly yet not girly. Imagine her in her early twenties, just discovered Dracula red and playing with lace details. The collection over all felt old-fashioned in a good way. A cocky side of the 18th century. The common thing were the thigh-high […]
