MIDTOWN HEIGHTS

New York May 2017

HEY Midtown!

A place where the buildings never end nor sleep, likewise for its traffic, work, shopping and vivant life.

Work, work, work… (or at least for me).

En snabbis från jobbet! Det blev ett Midtown-maraton, vilket alltid ger mig en nostalgisk mixkänsla av hög-på-livet-och-alla-världens-möjligheter (sånt som du känner när du är 25 år i världens bästa stad och försöker kämpa dig fram i karrären), samtidigt som jag påminns av då-tidens jobbpress. Något knasigt magiskt över det hela ändå.

SALES SALES SALES

New York May 2017
AND of course when entering the BG Shoe Salon I realized there’s a crazy dangerous sales going on… All my eyes were on Aquazzura. Guess which ones?

Så klart att rean hade startat när jag åkte upp till BG:s skosalong, med farligt fokus på Aquazzura… Gissa vilka det blev?

BALENCIAGA, L’OEUVRE AU NOIR

BALENCIAGAIF you’re in Paris anytime soon you have to pop by Musée Bourdelle (Paris 15e), where the exhibition entitled:

Balenciaga, l’oeuvre au noir is holding place between March 8th – July 16th.

The Palais Galliera is paying homage to the couturiers’ couturier, Cristóbal Balenciaga at this amazing late 19th-and early 20th-century sculptor museum. The exhibition resonates with the black tones of an alchemist of haute couture. Black is actually the theme and aka Balenciaga’s inspiration:

Black, for spiritual underpinnings of his work were the folklore and traditions of his Spanish childhood. Black, for the ascetic taste of this extraordinarily skilful tailor who gave us: the barrel line (1947), the balloon (1950), the semi-fitted (1951), the tunic dress (1955), and the sack dress (1957). Black, for the monastic influence on the master, of whom Dior once said: ‘Clothes were his religion’. You will see anything from day clothes, a suit, a jacket, evening outfits and also cocktail dresses lined in wonderful silk taffeta, edged with fringes, decorated with soft satin ribbons, jet beads, sequins, accessories, you name it , all in black, of course.

OAXEN SLIP

Stockholm April 2017

THIS is one of my favorite spots in Stockholm at Djurgården. Oaxen Slip is originally a fancy restaurant out in the Swedish archipelago, where they since a few years back brought the more low key bistro concept into the city yet a bit off shore to maintain the calmness and harmony, right next to water. And as yummie as always, where I prefer to brunch (herrings what else?).

Min favoritpärla i Stockholm ligger ute på Djurgården. För som känner till Oaxen från skärgården då har ni stads varianten här, ett bistro för den som gillar det lite mer low key och nära till havet, och lika gott som alltid!

GLAD VALBORG

Stockholm April 2017

YESTERDAY was as we call it in Swedish “Valborg”, a tradition where we simply firing up old branches and scaring away witches. If you’re not into that you can always have blue wine as we did. Hope you’re enjoying your long weekend as well!
