One of the things I missed the most while living in Los Angeles was COS. I know it may sound silly, but before moving to the states I stopped by COS at least once a week – resulting in quite a need and a lot of COS in my wardrobe. Just call me a COS addict – I even got my mum to send me supplies once in a while. Now that I’m back in Europe COS is once again a part of my everyday (wardrobe) and I’m so happy to have been chosen as one of four COS Style Icons.
A year ago I didn’t have any leather pants in my wardrobe – and now I’ve got leggings, shorts, biker pants, slouchy pants, track pants, cropped pants and now these, which are so classic and versatile. In other words leather pants have quickly become a staple piece in my wardrobe. I love how easy they are to dress up or down and teamed with heels and a pleated shirt with a cinched waist (for longer-looking legs) these pants are perfect for a day in the office as well as a night out.
Inspired by Alexander Wang, who’s behind one of my favourite collections this season, I stepped out in knee-long shorts, gladiator-sandals and a wire-detailed top this morning. I love the boy-meets-girl look and always add something feminine when dressed boyish – and the other way around. Knee-long shorts look great with heels and if you haven’t already got yourself a pair, go get them. They will be a huge trend in the Fall.
Back to work. Next week will be a busy one with meetings, a re-launch of Luelle (more about that tomorrow) and a very short trip to Copenhagen for a shoot. Happy Sunday!
Not your usual suspect. I love the unexpected combination of the girly Stella McCartney dress and leopard-printed Céline slippers – sported by dentist/fashion blogger Irina of A Portable Package at the Zalando Summer House. Clever and cool dressing.
Here’s what I was wearing Friday last week, when I changed London for the German countryside – and my flat for a castle. It didn’t take long for these sandals to become a favourite in my wardrobe – and let me tell you, they did just as good in the country as in the big city. When you can’t afford Céline and Birkenstock feels a little too comfy, these are the answer to your prayers.

Last week I spend three magical days with Zalando and 22 other european bloggers on Schloss Stülpe – the most beautiful castle outside Berlin. Three days with loads of fun, new friendships, fantastic food, partying and inspiring workshops with my favorite being a lecture by Li Edelkoort – one of the most renowned trend forecasters in the world. When I studied at London College of Fashion I took classes in trend forecasting and for years I dreamt of becoming one. If you ever wonder why some designers come up with the same ideas or colour palettes, Li Edelkoort is the answer. Fascinating, right?
Everything (but the weather) was perfect at the Zalando Summer House and boy, the party on Friday night was a night (and a setting) to remember. Balloons, flowers, pastel-coloured candy, creamy cakes and a dj, who knew that Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Michael Jackson is all it takes…
I sidste uge tilbragte jeg tre magiske dage med Zalando og 22 andre bloggere på Schloss Stülpe – det smukkeste slot udenfor Berlin. Tre dage med masser af sjov, nye venskaber, fantastisk mad, fest og inspirerende workshops, hvor min favorit var et foredrag af Li Edelkoort – en af verdens førende trend forecastere. Da jeg læste på London College of Fashion, tog jeg timer i lige præcis dette, og jeg drømte faktisk i mange år om at blive trend forecaster. Hvis du undrer dig over, hvorfor de største designere ofte kommer op med de samme tendenser eller farver, så er Li Edelkoort svaret. Fascinerende, ikk?
Alt (lige bortset fra vejret) var perfekt og oh boy, sommerfesten fredag aften var sjov. Med blomster, balloner, kager, pastelfarvet slik og ubeskriveligt smukke omgivelser var det som at træde ind i et Tim Walker fotografi. Nå ja, og så var er dj’en, der hurtigt fandt ud af, at Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears og Michael Jackson var alt der skulle til…
