I decided to divide the shows for ss 2019 / Fashionweek in Stockholm into two parts. These are my top looks of all the collections so far. Fashionweek ends today so lot of shows left to look forward to ofc. The one show I would have loved to get an invite to is ofc the styling of vintage clothing that was created/styled by amazing Inga Klemetz Farago in collab with Stockholm Auktionsverk (Auctionfirm), see looks here! That show is amaxing for someone like me loving vintage fashion from both the fashionable perspecive and the sustainable, win-win! <3

Soon, this afternoon I will walk down to Grand Hotel and see the show for Diana Orving. Superexcited! Laters xoxo

craving desert - dubai

I need sand between my toes again and now I am just one week away from my paradise, Dubai! Starting off next week I will live there for a couple of months to get my mojo in life back! Mindfulness is the goal for my extended vacation there this time around! I will spend my time doing things like start painting again, take time for extensive reading, work on both my body and mind and I might even get back in the horse saddle again as I have not been in one since my own horse passed away. I wanna expore the culture too with visits into the desert and vmosques. These are my priorities for this vacation, energy boosting! 

This last week is now being planned: Monday - Wednesday I will live at my fathers place as I will miss him soo very much when I leave! Tuesday we will also visit my grandparents! Family 1st! <3 Wednesday evening I will meet up with some lovely collegues from both Louis Vuitton and Chanel for dinner and drinks! Thursday I will see the Diana Orving show at Grand Hotel as Stockholm FashionWeek is on for ss2019. Friday and Saturday will be all about hanging out the last days in Stockholm with my loved ones! :) xoxo

Here I present a selection of some of my adorable choices, my personal pick for tonight I keep a secret! xoxo

idea of luxury - transformation

22 August 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I read an interesting article in a Swedish newspaper today by cultural journalist Dag Granath. The article was all about the transformation within the luxury fashion industry. Luxury brands have roots in beliefs that "luxury" goes hand in hand with quality, design and craft innovation and this is the way to legitimize high prices, exclusivity and values from these factors to attract the right segment of consumers. Nowadays the creation of value for the customer as well as the creation of desire is all changing rapidly. It has become clear these last years that the creative leadership has moved from creating a product, into communicating a message. The luxury industry of today is more and more selling an image and an idea. The products themselves are loosing value and the packiting and marketing of an idea or a message comes first. It is all about the hype!!! Are the fashion industry turning into the pervert idea of "you can sell everything with the right marketing and package, what you create is quite insignificant"?? For me, coming from an academic background in fashion science and ethnology with a mayor part of my studies focusing on the luxury fashion industry and the concept of luxury overall, I feel distressed! Although, I do think that the hype of today is all superfly in its modernity and a reflection of todays society, this will change over time in a society where awareness of higher values will survive into the future. I do think the future creative leaders in the fashion industry will come back to the historically central idea that luxury is based upon design, innovation, quality and craftmanship. Otherwise I do agree with Granath: The concept of luxury will loose its lust! (If you can understand Swedish, follow link to read the article, here) xoxo

still on my mind

20 August 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3 years ago - 5th July 2015 our first sunrise morning together holding hands on the rooftop of your Stockholm apartment. I put up a stillpic on instagram to capture that first moment and you felt the same showing a videoclip. Acknowledgement of a soulmate both ways. As we said when we met: "Like looking in a mirror".

4 months ago today - 20th april 2018 the end of your life as your wonderful soul left us mortal for higher purposes in the afterlife where you will live in eternity: NEVER forgotten by me.

Today I feel I have learned a lot from what happened to us. How people one surround oneself with should be choosen with the admost care! How people may have their own agendas and without respect to others true feelings or needs in life. I have regrets in the way I feel I did not trust your strong feelings. In my heart I knew, and you told me too, that they where all true. At that time I was nervous and overwhelmed of emotions and sadly trusted the ones you surrounded yourself with that they had your best interest in mind. How very wrong I was to do so! I know that now.

Also today I swapped to a new mobile. I was going through all the pictures on my old mobile from snapchat and messages you sent me. I was looking at the pictures I took of you and also us together. Now, these pictures are cherished memories that I keep close to my heart and all for myself. 

Last but not least: I do belive you will live in eternity in some form. For me: My life goes on! I go Bonnie and Clyde without you. And I do promise you that the next man I will fall for will be exactly as loving, kind and openhearted as you. I will never settle for less! Destiny is all! xoxo

berluti - creates desire

18 August 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I do think that a man in a Berluti suit is an attractive man! A man who with his appearence reveals a strong vurm of fashion as in: Craftsmanship, modernity and heritage, quality materials and so forth in his choice of clothing may absolutely arise my desires :) As I went on-line to get some eyecandy from the fashionworld of today it struck me that the Berluti fashion sense is reflected in the creation of its very own homepage as well. The webpage include, not just wonderful images from campaigns, editorials and so on: The mayor impact to me regarding the homepage is all the fashion information about about everything from how to customize a suit til how to take the best care of your cashmere clothing. Another thing struck me, being a bit of a nerd for everything beautiful, the creation of the pedagogic and illustrative "figures" into the different underpages. Adore them! A beautiful designed homepage!

So, if you want to "arise my desires" and want inspiration into dressing like my ideal of a Mr Right from Berluti, you are most welcome through link here! xoxo

too cool for school

14 August 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was born into a family that adore fashion <3 From the very beginning my parents dressed me up in an individual way and this has maybe formed me into a fashion passionista. Already in kindergarden, and later as I started school, kids (and other parents) talked about: How strange Alice is dressed? Where do they find those clothes? Why do her parents want her to look so different? Well, I felt cool in my black clothes, punkstyle, rockstyle, bohemic chic, fluffy, lot of patterns and my fav leopard prints. No other girl dressed like me and I was empowered by this! The only one that I feel came near my coolness was a boy named Leo (on the other hand if your surname is Åkerlund your from a highly creative home, so that is completely understandable). To sum it up, in my eyes we were the best dressed kids in school :) 

In those days, 15-20 years ago, dressing kids in a different and not mainstream way, was very uncommon in Sweden!! My family went travelling every fashion season to London or Miami. These were the citys where all the clothes, shoes and accessoires was picked out for me. I wore mostly Versace, Roberto Cavalli, Replay, Moncler, Diesel, Dior and Oilily.

When I get my own kids, and if I would be blessed to have a girl, I will dress her into a strong and individual child. Make her feel the power in daring to be different I do think form a better personality and a sense of that everyone should be able to express themself and their individuality in whatever way they want to. Me? Got it from birth!

Here I present some looks that reminds me of how I used to dress. Lovely are they not? xoxo

travel - louis vuitton

07 August 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As I tend to travel more and more in my life: How about choosing Louis Vuitton and travel in style? Well, been thinking about it for a while and when (or if) I start at Louis Vuitton again I will build up my own collection as putting together my own private luggage. These are a few of my top choices. I put the top three for women up and men down. You may alter however you want in todays genderless society. Although, I must admit I am a bit oldfashioned so I would go for these divided choices :) When on the subject of Louis Vuitton and travel, have you read the article at Vogue about Louis Vuitton being the celebs choice for travel. If you have not yet, follow link here! xoxo

my home - pure love

06 August 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Previously: This was from beginning to end an openhearted and truthful blogpost. I felt after much consideration that it should be deleted. For those of you who have already read it: Everything was true and none exhaggerated, I meant every word I said.

Although, after getting texts from persons involved, who are in fact the ones who mistreated me enourmously I decided to remove the previous words in this post. This change is nothing more then the truth kept in the dark and not public. My choice to delete the previous words are to be seen as that I am a not only a truthful person: I have empathy and kindness, even to them who do not treat me the same way back!!!  Do not want to bring back a fake and toxic friendship at all! I have already moved o with my life. And moved on while looking back to that week in Marbs as a hugh experience in knowing who your true friends really are! xoxo

 

 

 


vacay update - mood

03 August 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This week my vacation world tour has landed in Marbs! Soo much to do all the time. New people and new surroundings! As I almost never get any sleep I tend to take some powernaps now and then. When I close my eyes today this is what I thought of: What kind of people I have choosen to surround myself with? Or am I the choosen one who just go with the flow? Is this life really for me? I am an oldfashioned girl who has spent the major part of my life in the stables with my horse, is that where I really truly belong? Last years has been so much about fashion, party and exploring. Do I need to get back to my "roots"? Or could I settle down somewhere and work with fashion yet be at the stables almost daily? That would seem dreamy! Well, time will tell! Although, something is really missing in my life! I need less drama (I never coped with that shit) and more hands-on reality :) I need more people around me to dare to discover my inside, instead of judging me by my beauty! I have my loving family and a couple of true friends, so I should feel utterly blessed! Do not get me wrong my life has been perfect so far, yet I need to find mindfulness! This is what I will try to regain while in Dubai for a couple of months all by my own: Exploring, training, yoga, riding, painting and reading loads of books :)  Well well, now off for dinner! Later alligator! xoxo
