The temperatures don´t match the theme on my shirt, but I don´t know if they ever will this summer, so here I go!
Shirt from H&M, skirt and sweater from COS.
Inspired by the western tendencies coming up this fall, my inner cowgirl found these boots and bag on ASOS. They are already on heavy rotation in my wardrobe, and I might combine them with this shirt one of theses days.
I have been waiting for these Celiné inspired shoes from Hennes & Mauritz since I saw them on H&M´s pre-presentation. Mango had a similar model this spring, but they were in synthetic leather. Me (and my skin) prefer real leather. I ordered them online, as don´t want to gamble on finding them in stores when I get back from my holiday.
I also had to click home this beautiful horse motif cushion! Horses are such elegant animals, and I think the eighties esthetic made me a little nostalgic. I am one of those that did not get my room covered in photo wallpaper in the eighties – neither tropical island nor romantic cantering horses…
Magnificent dolls on display in the store Companys at Strøget in Copenhagen!
And then some Rock & Roll with Axl Rose, which reminds me of the incredibly entertaining book “Watch you bleed”, the Guns N´Roses saga written by Stephen Davis. Highly recommendable!
I love exhibitions – especially fashion related ones. A stop at the Northern Women in Chanel exhibition was therefore required when visiting some friends at Tjøme. Fantastic photos surrounded by inspiring scenery. The Verdens Ende archipelago is the perfect backdrop for this exhibition!
The art project is an ode to Scandinavian and Baltic models, styled and photographed by the couple Ingela Klemetz-Farago and Peter Farago. Ingmar Bergman’s earthy heroines have been a source of inspiration. What I like about their interpretation of Chanel is the diverse expressions in the collection. Moods like romantic, fragile, tight, tough, playful, appetent and avant garde are all represented. Ingela and Peter´s personal touch and the surrounding nature tie it all together.
Here are my favourites!
This photo of Mona Johannesson is my ultimate favourite. I like the lines in it, and it makes me wonder whom she is waiting for.
I am fascinated by the way this photo melts into the surroundings.
Freja Beha Eriksen is far from less-is-more in this photo. My associations go to the glam-rockers in the early 1980-ies.
It is something about the light in this photo…
This photo of Siri Tollerød is more art than fashion for me, and I would absolutely clean one of my walls for it. Ethereal and scary!
The portfolio holds 300 photos of 45 Nordic and Baltic models, and only a small selection is shown in the touring exhibition. If you want to see them all, you can buy the book Northern Women in Chanel for €175. It is candy for your eyes, and the profits go to Save the Children.
I strolled around with my camera, a dress from Zara and wedge sneakers from Ash.
Inspiration trip to Verdens Ende, Tjøme!
