My Diary

resort 2019 - this weeks catwalks

31 May 2018

 

 

 

 

GUCCI 

 

 

I am neither a fashionjournalist neither a fashioneditor so therefor the rules for fashioncritizism as Yuniya Kawamura writes about in "Fashion-ology", do not apply for me. With this I mean: I do not use "silence" as a way of critizism as fashionmedia usually do. By not exposing collections, and looks, silence is the proof of "not approved of" in todays fashionmedia. This blog is my very own I have no hesitation about telling my very own fashion thruth :) No chiefeditors and no commercial interests to take in considiration before speaking out, liberating. :)

This are, according to my taste, the best looks from the recent catwalks showing off resort 2019 collections.  However, this is the first time in years I do not approve of the creations by Alessandro Michele for GUCCI. I feel rather bored! It is way to blurry and way too much that makes me feel that I can not understand what that genious want to express with the collection? I must admit I do adore a few looks, although the collection feels out of order and out of time. Modernity? Do not think so! I might be wrong, or? I even tried to find out if the case might be that accessoires will lift up the validation of the entire collection. After looking at details from the collection, I got even more disappointed :/ Michele have been my love and one of my fashiongurus for years, why am I so truly disappointed now? 

Well, here are a few looks I do adore from GUCCI  (6 out of 115) and also looks from other collections that I really do enjoy! xoxo

sick of being sick

30 May 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have been home sick with high fever and a sore throat this entire week. I am so fed up with just laying in bed while trying to drink as much water as possible to drive the fever out of my body. Sweating and freezing in a strange mix changing hour by hour. Now I have been forced to try ginger shots too, nothing seems to work? Any ideas about cures or quick fixes? Hit me up! xoxo

 

 

 


louis vuitton cruise 2019

30 May 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is truly something very special and very genious about that Nicolas Ghesquière! Even for me, being very used to analysis and looking upon humans wearing fashion as a part of expression them as cultural beings from both my fashionscientic and ethnology background, I find it hard to describe my feelings for this collection in short. To sum it up, even if I perhaps should not do so: It is all about that sense of a genious combining fashion with art (or fashion being art), yet still get it to function all the way to the heart. It is all about that feeling of making subcultural ingredients desirable and with that switching it into desire and luxury. It is all about the creation of new silhouettes and a new sense of body, without deforming the body  instead dress the body in a new beautiful way. 

For me Ghesquière really has done an amazing collection, perhaps the strongest collection of all fashionhouses for many years? Lucky me, I will be able to let my customers experience the collection and witness their admiration too. :) These are my personal choices of looks, are they not amazing? xoxo

dior resort 2019

26 May 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What was yesterdays Dior Resort 2019 collection about? For me, it did not feel so much as a resort (or cruise) collection at all, except for the choices of boots that gave the look the easy feeling of a resort collection. I do adore the accessoires and I do adore the capture of a blast from the Christian Dior past origin from the 50s. A bit of a questionmark, for myself, with all the tulle and long long skirts for a resort collection? On the other hand the looks are gorgeous and I do love the fact that lace is really coming back bigtime which of course make an excellent ingrediens to that all so familiar feminine look as being the signature mark of Monsieur Christian Dior himself. The setting, for me as being a horselover, magic :) The weather must have been a hustle, truly raining cats and dogs. On the other hand there is a saying that rain makes great buisiness. I expect that will be true for Dior with this collection! Well done! xoxo

what is on my mind?

23 May 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These are the things on my mind as I woke up this morning:

 

1. Work 

Just about 2,5 months left before my looong vacay. I decided last year, as I graduated, that I would have summer-fall 2018 all to myself. Travel wherever I wanna travel. Live wherever I wanna live. So from July life will be all about myself :) This last 4 years I have been studying more than fulltime and working on the side within the fashion industry halftime or fulltime! I am proud of my achievements and feel I have earned and deserve off this hectic rollercoaster called Life.

2. New opportunities

I got a job assignment for the first week of August in my mail last week. All details included and I can not figure out if that career is for me, modelling I mean. Amazing photographer with an amazing work background. The job is catalogue for swimwear and lingerie. The salary between a 5-6 figure dollar income!! As you know me, I am not thinking about the money at all! If I would sign that contract it would be all for getting a new thrilling experience. Well, well I have not decided yet? 

3. Last month grief

Been on a huge mourning period this last month. I have also kept my mourning and chock away from social media with the deepest respect for someone who did not want to be in the public eye! Been shaking and crying for the first two weeks. Now as four weeks has passed by,  at least I can sleep an entire night without tears. I still miss him, the life that could have been with a soulmate that I now know also acknowledged me in the same way! <3

4. Matters of the heart

I will never never ever settle for less! I will never ever be with someone who do not trust and respect me for the person that I am! Judge me on the outside and you will never find out what is within my soul. Love and kindness will find its way! I am in absolutely no hurry! 

 

Thats all folks! Time for an afterwork this evening as Louis Vuitton HQ is in town! Fab! xoxo

weekend vibes

18 May 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Weekend vibes really kicking in! This is my extended weekend off this month, so no work until Wednesday. Tonight some of my bffs is coming over to my place. I do think we will grab some Fat Franks pizza on my balcony. After that: Well, hello nightlife which ofc means V/Wall, as summer has come ;)

Tomorrow Saturday, partying begins early as Ahlbom is throwing one of his amazing brunches at Riksarkivet (update- moved to Nosh and Chow instead). I Have been looking forward to that dayparty for months now <3

Besides that, well I finally will have time to hit the gym, fix my hair (that really needs a makeover) on Monday and ofc enjoy our beatiful summer weather. See ya out there! xoxo

 

 

 

 

 

 


time to hit the gym

18 May 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really had too much to do recently so the gym has been lacking my attention. Although I have been doing powerwalks for hours almost every second evening with my little yorkie. I have no actual stress to hit the gym as I do adore my figure and would not like to change anything about it. The reason for wanting to hit the gym is to feel stronger and get that energy boost only a hard workout provides. Love it! xoxo

The bound between father and daughter

18 May 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is so true there is a very special love between father and daughter. As usual every year,  I went with my father to Miami a couple of weeks ago. Amazing days and amazing evenings with laughter and deep discussions in a perfect mix. I can tell my father exactly everything, he have my back no matter what - unconditional love both ways. This last weeks I have preferred to spend my evenings with him. Our evenings together has always been so important for us. Just the two of us loving every minute spend together. When I was a child I waited for him to come home late lat in the evening. Then we always went out playing tennis on the empty schoolyard, climbing trees in Djurgården or going biking. No matter how late or how dark the evening was! Mother always let me stay up very very late as she thought it important for father and daughter to spend quality time alone. 

This last weeks we have been hanging out almost every second evening. I have prefered it that way as I miss having him around daily. We like to grab some dinner or take loong walks around town together. One thing that is quite funny is that my father is still so freaking good youthful looking, dressing trendy that sometimes people who never met him with me before, actually thinks I am on a date :) Awkward, hehe! Love him to bits! xoxo

As I was working over tonight doing some vm at our lovely Louis Vuitton flagshipstore in Stockholm, gotta get fixed in less then half an hour!

creating desire - swimwear - on my mind

16 May 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

NA-KD

 

 

 

Last evening I went on-line to click home some swimwear as summer is on its way. I have always been a sucker for Victorias Secret since my early teens. :)  Although nowadays I do feel both the show and the presentation on the website has lost its magic glow completely. Do not get me wrong the women are gorgeous as usual, truly sexy angels! I would like to be one myself ofc, although 171 cm in height is not enough even if one has a true killerbody and charisma ;)

Back to the matter on my mind: The presentation of Victorias Secret swimwear is, sorry to say, booooring! Nothing with the show nowadays or the looks on the websight makes me wanna buy that magic that use to be the signature mark of Victorias Secret. I do think that company has to meet up to the current netmarket and meet the customers on a completely different level in order to create desire and get back that validation that was so strong before. Look at the images below:  1. nervous models feeling out of place or afraid of water maybe? 2. half a cameltoe showing, where was the stylist? 3. Akward poses not showing off their great bodies in a positive way. Well, I could go on and on and on! What happened to the magic of using amazing photographers as Russell James, Ben Watts and Jerome Duran?. What happened to making that photo magic with uberangels? 

Then I said to myself why not check out the Swedish websight NA-KD. Tell me one thing, why do this smaller company with less gorgeous models and probably not such superphotographers succeed where Victorias Secret fail??? NA-KD use of course beautiful models and they seem to feel comfortable in the swimwear with the appearance of strong modern women of today. The looks, and fashion, actually made me click home some new swimwear so actually they got me hooked.

I have during my academic studies in fashion and ethnology learned a lot about photo analysis and also how to send messages thru exhibitions and shows. When I get it down to for instance Roland Barthes theory, all I can say is:The message the sender was hoping the receiver would get, was missed out on for Victorias Secret and so failure in presenting producs  leads to failure in keeping customer desire on a high. Example=myself!

Well, may companies in the world has to rethink how to create desire for now, next seasons and long-term. The world of fashion is so vivid and colorful at the moment, so one must dare to take steps ahead in a will to try to foresee the future. When I do think about it. The world of fashion is so much about the innovation, creation, modernity, PR, marketing and branding, sooo strange then that many fashion companies do not have fashionscientists hired to do market analysis and precictions within the fashion industry?? Might be that my education is so new, the industry does not even know what it consists of, or how much etnology as to do with fashion? How would those companies then know how much they would benifit from having staff with that education? 

 

I love the fact that this is my own lifestyle diary! No considieraton to commercials or adlinks and so forth! I may tell my own min exactly as it is, at least as long as I am my own boss here! As long as I have the opportunity to use this channel, I will do my admost to let you readers from all over the world, know my opinion about the global world of fashion. Naked and truthful! xoxo

louis vuitton - british royal wedding

15 May 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Louis Vuitton has launched a limited collection of bags in celebration of Harry and Meghan´s wedding. According to British Harpers Bazaar the range, which is only available to buy in the London flagship store, features four of the Louis Vuitton styles - the Keepall, Speedy, Neo Noe and Petite Malle - each emblazoned with the Union Jack. The patriotic collection only consists of 85 pieces!! Are you one of the lucky customers who will own one of these limited bags? 

The windows of the Louis Vuitton flagshipstore on New Bond Street have also had a patriotic makeover featuring a series of mini moving Union Jack flags and "Louis Vuitton celebrates the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle" etched across the glass.

I simply adore this manifestation of love! xoxo

royal wedding dresses

15 May 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This post will be in Swedish as it is about a current televison program on SVT: "Royal Weddingdresses". As you already must know is that these Royal weddingdresses in fact played their part in my fashion scientific thesis "CrownPrincess Victoria - dress in royal duties" . I will discuss the program and the connection to my thesis in Swedish below. Bare with for not translating into English, as the program itself and my thesis has no translation into English either! xoxo

 

I helgen sände SVT programmet "Kungliga brudklänningar" vilket är ett ämne som var en stor del av min forskning inför mitt modevetenskapliga uppsatsarbete med "För Sverige i Tiden - Kronprinsessan Victoria - klädsel i kunglig ämbetsutövning".  Största delen gav min forskning gav mig svar på hur Kronprinsessan Victoria kunde ändra sin kungliga garderob och genom denna förändring få positiva fördelar i sin image genom förändrad branding, pr, marketing och även att hon genom förändrad klädsel kunde visa vilka frågor som stod henne närmast hjärtat, såsom miljöfrågor. (Jag vet att Kronprinsessan själv personligen fick del av min forskning och även min uppsats när den var färdig) 

Tilläggas ska i denna del av uppsatsen innefattade även ett specifikt ämne "Kungliga brudklänningar" med ett ursprung i den då pågående utställningen på Kungliga Slottet. I min modevetenskapliga forskning blev jag inbjuden till Kungliga Slottet för att göra några intervjuer. En av dessa intervjuer, som tog plats på Kungliga Slottet, gjorde jag med chefen för Kungl. Husgerådskammaren och Bernadottebiblioteket, Överintendent Margareta Nisser-Dalman. Hon ansvarar för förvaltningen av de kungliga slottens lösöresamlingar och Bernadottebibliotekets samlingar av böcker och fotografier. En del av det s.k. "kunskapsförmedlande arbetet" sker ju i form av utställningsverksamhet (intervjun i sin helhetsform finns som bilaga till min uppsats).  Kronprinsessans bröllopsklädsel har jag också undersökt extra nära genom en egen fältobservation vid Kungliga Slottets utställning ”Kungliga brudklänningar 1976-2015”. I uppsatsen har Kronprinsessans brudklädsel undersökts i jämförelse med Drottning Silvias och de samtida prinsessorna inom svenska kungahuset, men även andra historiska och samtida europeiska kungligheter. 

Vad tyckte jag då om det aktuella SVTprogrammet? Jo, det var trevligt att höra kungligheterna själva berätta om sina brudklänningar och självklart även de svenska designers som var intervjuade :) Vad jag saknade i programmet var dock en förmedling av den känsla som Drottning Silvia berörde så fint i sitt invigningstal då hon förklarade utställningen som "En utställning i kärlekens tecken". Vad jag också saknade var bilder på utställningens konstruktion och uppbyggnad som är en stor del av upplevelsen, att via brudklänningarna komma de kungliga brudarna närmare. Programmet gav mig främst en sorts nostalgisk återblick till för mer än ett år tillbaka när kunglig garderob tog upp den största delen av mitt liv! :) xoxo

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


a spiritual moodboard

12 May 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is my moodboard about my current status! I see you everywhere is a beautiful rememberance of a beautiful soul. Things happens around me daily that I can not explain, sometimes it sooths my mind to think you had something to do with it. Like a sign from another place, maybe! Or, maybe I am fooling myself and maybe I have been so oversensitive in grief these last weeks that I tend to read in more things to stuff than actually is true? Might be just my way of mourning and still hoping you are present in a spritual way?  I just wanna tell you that if you are there, I do feel you presence and this moodboard is all about drifting away in beautiful memories! Love

azzedine alaia - The Couturier

10 May 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another exhibition that is a must for me next time in London is "Azzedine Alaie: The Couturier" at The Design Museum, follow link here!

Such an amazing artist! Lucky me I studied French for seven years as the amazing clip below gave me such pleasure! If you do not understand French, well turn down the volume and put on some music instead, while watching the clip anyway! (Don´t forget to set the clip back from the beginning, in some strange way it begins in the middle as I infolded it?? ) :) xoxo

soon release for men fragrances - louis vuitton

09 May 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Louis Vuitton released a collection of women’s perfumes in 2016. Soon to be released is a new collection with fragrances for men. 

According to WWD, Louis Vuitton’s master perfumer Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud has been working with the new collection for years.  And thru these years he has been inspired from how the fashion world for men has evolved, as for example men wearing more and more vibrant colorful accessories.

In the collection you may discover the oud "Ombre Nomade" with a scent origin from the Middle East taken from the wood of the agar tree witch is one of the most exclusive scents of today. With an origin from pure oud oil one can enjoy a spicy and leathery scent.  Another new rich scent is "Au Hasard" with an origin from Sri Lanka sandalwood, ambrette and cardamom.

In the collection there is also fruity fragrances for men: "L'immensité" with a rich grapefruit, amber and ginger scent, "Sur la Route" that has a base in Calbria citrus, cedar and grass and "Orage" with a citrus smell origin from bergamot, iris and patchouli.

I am personally most excited by the final scent in the new collection that is described as "inspired by the experience of eating chocolate". Cavallier-Belletrud conceived the idea for the perfume "Nouveau Monde", which has notes of cocoa, saffron, and oud assam, while relaxing in Guatemala eating Mayan chocolates. This one I hope will smell like a lovely mug of hot chocolate. :)

I have no doubt that the launch will be a great success and yet another step in Louis Vuitton, and LVMHs, journey in the "buisness of luxury". I also heard that there is a sustainable thinking, as one may be able to refill an empty bottle simply by visiting one of the various perfume “fountains” at the stores? Superb! The fragrances are to be released at Louis Vuitton stores and on its website May 31. I am superexited! Are you? xoxo

 

 

 

 


“Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”

08 May 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love to get the chance to experience fashion exhibitions at museums <3 Any exhibition about fashion got my head spinning with inspiration in search of new knowledge and education. As a real nerdy fashion scientist I also tend to do my analyis of exhibitions out of theoris from Marie Riegels Melchiors book "Fashion and Museums-Theory and Practice". I tend to almost breathe in absolutely everything: The fashion subjects, the presentation, the informational material and ofc also stuff like lightning and staging. It is truly important for me to figure out what kind of message the curator who constructed the exhibition tries to send to me as being a voyeur and I do try to challenge my viewing in a deeper perspecive based upon academic concepts like history, ethnology, religion and art. I have discovered that the more I focus on details and do my very own analysis, the more interesting the exhibitions becomes for me.

In modern time museums has discovered that a way to keep relevant and attract visitors is very much based upon making traditional museums into democratic institutions of knowledge, education and pleasure. Although not only institutions as museums, as for example one part of my BA essay was based upon a bridal fashion exhibition at the Royal Castle in Stockholm. During my research I did an interview with our Royal Court representive Margareta Nisser-Dalman who is the head of "The Royal Collections Department". (A department that is responsible for the management, care and maintenance of the works of art and furnishings at Sweden's ten royal palaces). As she was responsible for the bridal exhibition we had deep discussions on what to think about in terms of making a fashion exhibition and the importance on sending a message that the viewer would understood, all in symbosis!

My thesis was based upon, for example, Erving Goffman theories about dramaturgical sociology. Shortly I may describe this approach as that the elements of human interactions are dependent upon time, place, and audience. I did my thesis upon this theory by Goffman by seeing the bridal fashion exhibition as a stage and the bridal dresses as actors performing on a stage. In that way I could do a theatrical metaphor in defining the method in which one human being presents itself to another based on cultural values, norms, and beliefs.  The goal of a exhibition is acceptance from the audience. If the exhibition is a succeess, the audience will view the exhibition as the curator/museum wanted it to be viewed.

I will of course the next time I am in New York visit Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute exhibition, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” that opens on Thursday, May 10 and continues until October 8. If you wanna read more about the exhibition use link to Vogue here! I sense you do not wanna miss out on this exhibition if you are a true passionista, as in having a deep passion for fashion! xoxo

bernard arnault - lvmh

06 May 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you already have figured out I do love interviews and discussion about fashion. This is about Bernard Arnault (head of LVMH) and his way into the luxury fashion industry. The interviews are really eyeopening on how a person, that is all about creativity, at the same time can build up a buisiness in this extraordinary way. 

I do love the discussions about what luxury really is and also the thought about the fashion industry in the future! What I do lack in the discussion is the perspecive of creating desire as the customer is about to do his/her fashion purchase choices! Ofc, the spot is on modernity, craftmanship, heritage and creativity. About recruiting innovatore in design from the best fashion universitys. Although there is much more people needed in the fashion industry and further more much more fashion studies than design and PR. The fashion analytics in as for instance how the luxury products need to be presented, not only in adverts and catwalks, yet even further in the creative and thrilling meeting between salesperson and customer that has to take place on a certain platform to create the all important desire. The future is very much about wanting to be seen as an individual and wanting to be acknowledged for this. These questions and analysis should get a larger focus as I want to make clear in just a few sentences here. The future of luxury stores for instance, is making geographic places where the customers feels welcomed, relaxed and acknowledged. With this said I can go on to my etnology academic studies as for example citylife in a distant future with the creation of luxury market places for the urban cities.  The demands and challenges for architechts within the luxury industry to forecast the change in cutomer behavior and how to meet up this changes. I do not presume to say that the days of internet shopping will be over, although the demand of the luxury customer is soo much more about beeing seen and acknowledged that the discussion I see really focus on today.

I do not have time for this now, trust me I will come back to this further in a more analytic academic way in the near future. Now off to catch the sun this lovely sunday! xoxo

 

 

 


dsquared2 - my kinda summer

06 May 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As spring is come it is about to change into the more laid back look for me. Summer for me is all about denim, heels, leopard, black and ofc start of wearing hats and caps. This is my chill fashion mood for today as I soon will be strolling down to Strandbryggan, the spot to be during these warm summerdays inside the capital of Stockholm. xoxo

 

 

 

 

 

Might be the short summer we have in Sweden that really drives me to wear skirts and shorts almost daily. Leg day in a different way, everyday! Feels legit! xoxo

This weekend you will find me at work! Before walking down to the Louis Vuitton store this morning, I want to introduce you to the bag "Twist". On the Louis Vuitton website states that: "Nicolas Ghesquière’s emblematic creation is reinvented each year in new colors and patterns. First introduced on the runway in 2015, the Twist bag was Nicolas Ghesquière’s modern interpretation of the Epi Trapeze clutch from the Maison’s archives. With its signature LV Twist Lock and versatile design, the Twist has quickly become a pillar of the new Louis Vuitton classics. For this season, new special finishes join the classic Epi models in fresh colors".

Why not stop by and let me present the collection for you? Soo much new adorable and desireable fashion in store presently! Here I show you some of the "Twist" bags and also a wonderful videoclip "The Spirit of Travel". Get inspired for a wonderful summer coming up and if you have any questions or wishes, do not hesitate to stop by the store or call me up and make a personal appointment! xoxo

a fashionable friday - chanel

04 May 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yesterday,  Chanel was the first of the top fashion houses of the world to show off its Resort Collection 2019. What an amazing start of a promising fashionable 2019.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Chanel collection was all about the word "Resort". Leisurewear with a feeling of walking the French coastline of the Mediterrarean Sea, maybe hop on a yacht or take a beutiful fresh typical local dinner while the sun sets far far away.  A whole lot of French glamour, a whole lot of the luxury of leisure and the luxury that time really is in the hectic society of today, but also with some amazing flashbacks from the glam 80s. Brilliant, and I here present my personal best looks, even though I think a collection of this should be presented by smiling models :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

I can not wait to see the Resort collections, also to be shown in France,  that are soon due for Louis Vuitton (28th of May), Christian Dior (25th of May) and GUCCI (30th of May) <3

Well, Kanye tells it all!
