My friend and casting director Fanny Zakrisson is probably one of the most hilarious persons that I know of. Throughout all the years, from me leaving Stockholm for New York and she for Paris, to me now in Pairs, we’ve managed to maintain contact. Partly because of work, partly because she cracks me up. And speaking of laughing, it’ s so important. If you know me it doesn’t take long before I’m comfortable laughing in someones company – I guess I see life from a comic point of view but I also read that laugh improves brain work and quality of life. Well, how about that?! But for me I guess it’s my good way to survive boring times, embarrassing or awkward moments, an ice-breaker or simply just fun company – as today with fun Fanny. What’s better than a catch up @Hotel Côstes over some fresh veggies?
It’s been one year since I moved to Paris – can you believe it? Well I can’t, it’s simply gone by too fast! So, things are finally starting to come together in my new apartment and before anymore furnitures get in here I thought I sell out part of my closet, that just takes up unnecessary space. To spice it up I made a mimosa brunch for the girls, which always makes me think of New York (love that). Now I hope you all have a good evening!
Spotted outside my building Louis Vuitton‘s latest campaign. A celebration of “Le Monogram” by contributors Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Louboutin, Marc Newson, Cindy Sherman and Frank Gehry. Freja Beha doing her thing flawless with the bag creation by Christian Louboutin in my current obsession, the wrapped belt and knit underwear.
Monday is probably the day I consume the most coffee. Starting at home with two espressos (yes and never less than 9 in intensity, after my tea), then it gets over to a soy cappo by lunch and back again on espressos. If you’re in Paris and trying to skip lactose (which is almost impossible here) I suggest you go to Rose Bakery in Le Marais or Pigalle. You can also get gluten free stuff here. Okay let’s take a coffee and pretend fall never happened (and that the sound of rain is just the new beat).
Hello from my rooftop and new flat! It’s slowly coming together but I still have a long way to go. Biggest and most difficult decision right now is the sofa. I just can’t find the perfect one, or speaking from my price range. I’m thinking towards art deco but I might as well end up with baby blue shades (at moment it seems to be interior trend..?). It’s all spinning in my head – gold, silver, wood, plastic, iron, marble, details, details, details…Enough, time to organize my closets!
Happy Sunday evening!
Finally some photos from Vogue Fashion Night Out where Rue Saint-Honoré and Rue Royal were swinging earlier this week. My top favorite events were:
MM6 Maison Martin Margiela first European shop opening at 22 Place du Marché Saint-Honoré
Colette and the launch of How to be Parisian
Balenciaga event at Rue Saint-Honoré
For Paris Fashion Week the famous department store Le Printemps has geared up. Here’s my three favorites that you shouldn’t miss out on next week. Click on MORE for all three.
On Tuesday we were invited to the preview of the photo exhibition entitled “SONIC” by Hedi Slimane at the Foundation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent. It’s the first time his 15 years of black and white musical archives are exhibited, including portrayals of heroic rock figures from Lou Reed to Brian Wilson and a video installation from musical cycles in London (2003-2007) and California (2007-2014) that depicts an alternative portrait of two generations of performers and their fans. There were also live music enjoy and Mr Slimane himself there.
I truly recommend this expo that goes live today, 18th September until the 11th January 2015. What’s there to wait for?
Yesterday it was time for Vogue Fashion Night Out on the streets of Paris and then a preview of the photo exhibition “SONIC” by Hedi Slimane at Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent. It was a full evening that I promise to write more about later when I get the time. Until then, this is what I wore dad’s vintage blazer by GIANNI VERSACE (circa 1969), silk dress from ZARA, vintage belt from mom (circa 70′s), monogrammed wallet from SAINT LAURENT and sandals by MANOLO BLAHNIK.
