I found a white wall in Shoreditch, I wore my favourite vintage dress and the awesome photographer took pictures of me.Â VoilĂ
I just canÂ´t get enough of the Bohemian style that can be spotted in most of retailers,Â from luxury brands such as Burberry, ValentinoÂ are going all Boho chic (Burberry even named AW15 MenÂ´s Wear collection Classically Bohemian) to the main street brands such as Zara. I just adore the relaxed yet feminine look that makes you dreaming about a century full ofÂ braveness andÂ valour, where peopleÂ´s interest in political awareness, along with liberty of women flourished and increased. The young generation experimented with the thought of a more liberal and openmindedÂ society and demonstrate their newfound mindsets via their style and more relaxing lifestyle. Very inspiring!
As I mentioned on my previous post, it is essential to frequentlyÂ leave the hectic London life behind and travel somewhereÂ farfetched. I decided on travelling to Norway to visit my sister and her Norwegian husband. She lives in a small town in the Southern Norway named TĂ¸nsberg (actually known as NorwayÂ´s oldest town) and we spend the days strolling around the harbour ofÂ TĂ¸nsberg and talked about love, life and everything in-between. We also visitedÂ her parents-in-lawÂ anÂ afternoon where they run their own apple farm (very hipster, I know!)Â aroundÂ 2 hours drive outside TĂ¸nsbergand, I meet and feel in love with their new poppy called Chaos. Even though the weather was not ideal, I must admit it felt amazing gettingÂ closer to the nature where the time has little meaning and smallÂ trivialities in your life starts to fade away.
I canÂ´t believe I have lived in London for a year now! It has been crazy fun living in a metropolitan city,Â I have learnt so much about myself, meet incredible people and experienced so many things. Â Here is a quick summery of what I have learnt living in London for a year!
I try to visitÂ the small seaside resortÂ Brighton, located at the South coast ofÂ England, as often as I can. The fresh breeze from the ocean, the hippie and chill out atmosphere andÂ quirky shops (and the most amazing second-hand shops) is extremely refreshing comparing to the cosmopolitan London. IÂ´mÂ especially very fond of the many local caffe places, offering the most delicious selection of pastries.
Even though the weather was not ideal (yes typical English weather, rain and windy) we managed to stroll around inÂ the central of Brighton, have a long walk to the fish shop to buy our traditional lunch steak tuna with chips and skate, or at least trying to.
A lot of people have asked me about the colourful shirt I wore during last London Fashion weekÂ (click here).Â The shirt and also the shirt IÂ´m wearing on the pictures above is from the East London based label Soot and Ty (click here)Â and isÂ actually menÂ´s wear label. However IÂ´m a big fan of Soot and Ty and love theÂ shirtÂ´s fitted style and playful pattern. Â Shirts from Soot and Ty is definitely a statement piece and is perfect to create your own unique look.
Soot and Ty just launched a new collection for Spring/Summer with lots of colourful and fashionable items.Â Visit their store at740/741 Camden Stables Market, Chalk Farm Road, London, NW1 8AH or simply pop by their stand every weekend at the Backyard Market & Sunday Upmarket in Bricklane, E1.
