BLUE ON BLUE

I came across the amazing London- based shoe brand called FINSK, found by the Finnish designer Julia Lundsten in 2004. FINSK is known for mixing avant-garde yet modern style inspired by architecture and details found in furnitures. Besides creating stunning shoes, a pair of FINSK are super comfortable. All are Made in Brazil by local craftsmen using traditional shoes making methods and applying highest quality materials as by-products of other industries.

A pair of FINSK shoe is a statement piece, giving your look the little extra it might have been missing.

THINGS THAT CAN BE FOUND ON SECOND-ON-SHOPS

One of my biggest hobbies is to go around and find different second-hand stores, vintage boutiques or even better, charity shops every time I travel to a place. The top and skirt I´m wearing is from Eriks Hjälp, a charity shop in Malmö and was bought the last time I was back home in Sweden. The bag is from Zara and the shoes is also from Zara but was bought at the charity shop Barnardos in Brixton.  The reason why I so fond of second hand items is that I always find unique and special things, from clothes, furniture to accessories, also its environmental friendly and sustainable to purchase (or reuse) perfectly fine items others no longer need. 90% of clothing that is thrown away is before the end of its life circle, this means that clothes have much longer life cycle and can be worn longer period of time before it actually is unwearable. So if you area bit sceptical to second-hand clothes, try to organise a clothes swapping day with your friends and get a totally new wardrobe and the best thing is that its for free!!

AFTERNOON IN ENGLISH FOREST

Since I moved to London, I have started to feel a strong longing for being in the nature. Having some time off from work, my friend Alex and I took a road trip outside London to a place called Oxted. The plan was to have a long and relaxing walk in the forest and as soon as we step into the forest, we where surrounded by a sea of bluebells. It was a magic view! Shortly after the picture above was taken, it started to rain so it turned out to be a short visit. However it felt amazing to leave the big city life behind for a short while and reconnect with mother earth.

The Shirt

A lot of people have asked me about the colourful shirt I wore during last London Fashion week (click here). The shirt and also the shirt I´m wearing on the pictures above is from the East London based label Soot and Ty (click here) and is actually men´s wear label. However I´m a big fan of Soot and Ty and love the shirt´s fitted style and playful pattern.  Shirts from Soot and Ty is definitely a statement piece and is perfect to create your own unique look.

THE MAGIC WORLD OF MCQUEEN

For some weeks ago, I visited Alexander McQueen´s celebrated exhibition entitled “Savage Beauty” containing his most well known collections, from his MA graduation collection in 1992 to the unfinished collection AW2010.

I have been a big fan of McQueen´s work and always admired his ability to fully express his visions and translate them into beautiful and creative collections. Visiting Savage Beauty, was like entering McQueen´s head where I fully understood his mindset and imagination.
