Since last time I wrote my thoughts

A lot has happened since last time I wrote in this arena. I jumped, took a dive and got up again. Everything had lately been on the other side but then I decided to travel because when you go on an airplane you have a destination. I traveled for the sake of capturing old habbits, old friends and old memories. And great fashion!
This trip was an eye opener in my case. An eye opener for London and it's amazing fashion - especially the one you find on the vintage markets all over town. Pictures will be uploaded at some point.
The vintage clothes got me to think about why we often find us selves trapped in the past when we really should be moving towards the future. Designers often turn to the past to find inspiration. Where is the fantasy? What happened to living and sharing this moment? Why are we so amazed by the past and so affraid of the future?

Keep posted

Back to basics with Burberry

I been wanting a Burberry trenchcoat for years now. And when I found this on a danish second hand clothing website I thought I'd give it a shot. And I'm actually very satisfied with my trenchcoat - I was worried I would look like a german soldier, but I think it works quite good after all.

H&M calls for a stylish and relaxed summer

I just found these two items in H&M the other day. I especially like the skull t-shirt - perfect for my underdressed and laid back summer. I would wear both with beige shorts and brown shoes. For example the ones PHIGO made last summer (which I have regretted ever since I didn't buy - stupid me).

Marc Jacobs shades

Just found these on otticanet.com the other day and had to buy them. Unfortunately this color won't be back in stock untill the end of May. I hope they are worth waiting for.

Summertime calls for a new time piece. An expensive happit one might say, but I've been wanting this watch since last year. It is all black in black with a black rubber band. Originally made for the Italian rugby sports team. A true sportswatch - authentic style.

Why spend a lot when you can spend less?

The white panama hat(350 kr) from By Malene Birger S/S 2010 collection has become one of the most wanted item this summer. Even the knock-off H&M has made at an affordable price(59.95 kr) is sold out already.
The fantastic tolero jacket at (only) 2500 kr from By Malene Birger also has a little sister in H&M's New yorker girl collection. The H&M jacket is only 499 kr - the design is not quite the same( I like Birger's the most), but the idea and expression is the same. Certainly a great buy for the stylish woman! Wear it with on of the season super short black skirts.

Cufflinks from ETON and Tiger of Sweden

By Malene Birger S/S 2010 - A little some for the ladies

After some heavy persuasion I decided to add a little some for the ladies. This is my favorite danish female designer. This is a small selection of By Malene Birger's key looks for S/S 2010. Her spring/summer collection for 2010 is one of her best collections ever in my opinion. And the hat is too cool! This season dresses have to be either super short or have maximum lenght, striped and ready to wear on the beach. And no summer heat without a jumpsuit, animal print and glitter. Oh so glamorous, oh so hot!

The best way to travel is to travel in style.

I know it has been a while but my apology for my absence is that I'm currently bidding on a vintage Louis Vuitton softsided Satelite 65. It's not the excact same model as the one you see above but it looks quite the same. Allthough mine(hopefully) needs a loving hand - with a new gold zipper in it...of course. Pictures will be uploaded. Later on I'm gonna post some of Louis Vuitton's men's bags for fall/winter 2010. If you have a special place in your heart for luxury and quality bags, I can tell you one thing; it's gonna be an expensive winter season for you. More later...

When a great salary pays off

A quick trip to the city can sometimes bring in key items for a great season. It's never too late to buy a perfect winter suit. Today's catch was this slim fitted suit with velvet finishings from the Danish brand DAY Birger et Mikkelsen. Pay day certainly is happy day.

Blue is B(l)ack

Blue is certainly the colour of the season. Mix up blue tones and play with stripes and checkered long shirts because blue is back as the new black. This is from Marc by Marc Jacobs' S/S 2010 show. If your wallet isn't that fond of heavy price tags, go to your nearest high street brand and shop for the blue items. (H&M has made a great double buttoned suit jacket. Only 100 Euros.) Wear the different patterns at the same time and achieve a preppy look. Just remember to fold your chinos again this season, comb your hair and you'll be ready for spring.

"Fly me to the moon..."

Some of the greatest brands have brought the butterfly back on its wings. This winter you can prep up your winter outfit but still feel casual. Here is my vintage collection of butterflies from this winter. I have four velvet butterflies (red, grey striped, blue, and black (not in the picture)), two made of silk and on glitterish paper butterfly. The glitterish butterfly was manly meant for NYE but I thought it deserved to be in the picture). I wear them with a casual polo shirt or with a clean white shirt for a night on the town. It looks great with a pullover as well.

The brown pilot sunglasses

Dolce & Gabbana is one of my favorite brands. Italians when they're best. The spring/summer collection is very much inspired by 'the guy next door'. But no Dolce without a bit of glamour. The colors of this season is beige, white and blue(denim) mixed with brown strappy sandals and raw leather belts. These brown pilot glasses is one of this season's musthave items - for both men and women. Try to find a pair that has one tone darker shades than your summer tan but still a color that matches you hair at the same time. The frame has to be ultra shiny metal. This creates a bohemian but still a glamoures beach look - like 'the (stylish) guy next door'. Check out the rest of the campaign at Dolce & Gabbana's web site. ( For the ladies: Check out the men's add campaign and recognize 'Adam' from The City)

Hiroki Tsukuda for H&M

Today's buy. A collaboration between H&M and up-and-coming creative talents just like japanese Hiroki Tsukuda, who clearly has a special place for machinery in his heart. If you check out his website http://www.hirokitsukuda.com/ you'll see what I meen. This print reminded me of an updated version of Lara Croft from the manly film TombRaider. Though I've never been that fond of Tomb Raider( but a big fan of Angelina), I thought this t-shirt could bring something else to my wardrobe. I'm gonna use the t-shirt with washed jeans and might aswell under a blazer/cardigan accesorized with a big black wollen scarf and a grey suede belt. Next up in the row of talents is 18-year old André from Sweden and his first factory made collection for his hyped t-shirt label "Black Book". He is a professor in making cool print t-shirts but in this collection we decide which prints we will see when the collection is launched in late April. Get a preview a H&M's homepage, join the cotest and even meet the leopard iggy piggy
