HARRODS OF LONDON

harrods_marieI’m super excited to finally show you the result of my shoot with Harrods of London. Why my hair looks so golden is still a mystery to me but I’m seriously considering colouring it like that… On the other hand I want to go blonder.

Anyhow, let’s not talk about the hair but what I’m wearing. To celebrate the launch of the new collection from Harrods of London we all got to choose one leather piece to wear at the shoot. I went for a navy coloured pencil skirt, which is undoubtedly the best pencilskirt I’ve ever slipped into. You can almost see how soft the leather is… And the fit was just perfect.

I love mixing slim pieces with more boxy items so it felt just right to team the pencil skirt with a layer of boxy tops. I’m gonna need the cropped Proenza Schouler top in my wardrobe. You can’t see it on the picture but it has black buttons all the way down the back, which was such a cool detail. Underneath I wore a white sleeveless 3.1 Phillip Lim top and I really think the two tops compliment each other so well. The white top and the white clutch brings a lightness to the look making it perfect for summer.

See more from the Digital Style Summit – and what the other girls were wearing over at Harrods.com.

TWO DAYS WITH HARRODS

harrods1Last month I was invited by Harrods to join their very first Digital Style Summit to celebrate the new Harrods of London collection. With seven of my favorite bloggers I was in the best company – and pampered like never before by Harrods. I was picked up by Porsche who took me to the 5-star Mandarin Oriental Hotel next to Hyde Park where I got the keys to my home-away-from-home for the next two days.

I’ll let the pictures below do the talking for what happened next…

harrods2Next stop, Harrods. During the grand tour we got to choose our favorite fragrance from Le Labo…

harrods7Among the gifts were these cool RTA jeans. Perfect with my favorite Alexander Wang mules. 

harrods16Time to decide (and to try on) what to wear for next day’s shoot. We all had a big closet in our rooms with a selection of Harrods of London pieces and a bunch of other amazing items, which we and the stylists of Harrods had picked out a few days earlier. It was love at first sight when I spotted this Proenza Schouler top in my closet.

MARKBERG – THE BATTLE

Marie1

marie4Finally I can share the result of the super exciting design project I’ve been involved in since September last year. I still remember the day the Danish accessories label Markberg called me and asked me to be one of five bloggers who got to design our very own version of the classic Markberg bag. It only took me a few minutes to decide that I was in.

And here it is, months (and many ideas) later this is the final result.

I wanted to create a bag that reflects my simple style and decided for a combination of black buffalo leather and grey embossed suede. The hardware is made of antique silver, which is seen on the chunky chain and the two zip pockets in the front. I love how the bag goes with basically everything in any girls wardrobe and is perfect whether you’re heading for lunch, a meeting, shopping or cocktails after dark.

Until May 11th you can vote for your favorite bag and get the chance of winning it. The blogger with the most votes also gets a prize so if you like the bag, please vote for it.

Place your vote for your favorite bag right here.

The bag retails for 1199 DKK/160 EUR and is available in stores and online today.

ALEXANDER WANG X H&M

wanghm

This is finally happening! Alexander Wang took to Instagram (and a party at Coachella) to break the news about his coming collection with H&M. I’m sure I’m not the only one who have been dreaming about this collaboration some day happening.

Mark your calendar – the collection is set to hit stores on November 6th.

Jimmy Choo just launched it’s new collection CHOO.08°, which features a wardrobe of shoes including biker boots, brogues, slip-ons, flats and trainers – all with an attitude and a look that’s perfect for a busy everyday life in the city.

To celebrate the launch of the new collection I was invited to style two of my favorites along with a few other London-based bloggers. I went for the Guild flat, a pointy-toe flat with an edgy zip-detail and the Demi flat, a black matte python slip-on, which both added a bit more edge to my minimalist Scandinavian style.

Check out (and shop) the new CHOO.08° collection featuring me and the other girls at Jimmychoo.com – and find out what we think about London-style, the new collection and where to go in London.
