My Diary

Last update - and summery - 2018

30 December 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hello chicks and dudes! Long time no seen. When I think about this blog - It feels legit to check in here to update you about the life of Alice in Wonderland and also provide you with a short summery of my 2018.

This year has made a hugh impact on me as a person. Ups and downs have made me grew a lot and empowered me in ohh so many ways:

 

Bottom 3 during 2018

1. My only true mutual acknowledged soulmate ever, passed away in april. I always thought we would end up together one day, although forced apart against our wills in july 2015. When we first met, like looking in a mirror. Two souls alike! His sudden death cut my heart and sorrow struck me down and still lingers on a daily basis. I will cherish all those private memories - his loving hands never letting go while sleeping, the way he looked at me, his kind and shy smile and our discussion about everyday life  <3

2. After this I could not stay in Stockholm. Therefor I ended my contract at LV in July (still miss my lovely work, team and customers badly) to flee away and travel the world with the ambition to get my mojo back in life.

3. I have made many final decisions during 2018 that also meant leaving people behind me that has drained me and my positive energy and taken my kindness, generosity and loyalty for granted during so many years. These decisions was not any sudden ones at all - yet no walk in the park - although necessary.

 

Top 3 during 2018

1. I have been discovering the world: Paris, London, Marbella, Miami - and during several months during fall - Dubai. I have fallen in love with Dubai and its boosting energy, therefor I will begin 2019 wtih another period of 3 months starting off today.

2. Dubai gave me the right energy to help me sort out a lot of things both private and professional. I truly got my mojo back bigtime late fall/winter and this has strengthen- and provided me with the right tools to set goals for my future.

3. This year has been an eyeopener in many ways. I now feel like an empowered woman - confident in myself and my choices. I have more then ever before received proof that my personality - based upon my belief that kindness, loyalty and strong ethics - is the right guidelines for my life.  I am always trying my admost to be the best person I possibly can be. 

 

This is all for me for now. My ride, bf Jenny, awaits to drive me to the airport. Lift-off Dubai! I adore that magic place in the world. What is not to love about Dubai? Well, I can not think about one single thing! Bye bye 2018 and ya all out there stay true to yourself and remember: Be kind, always!! xoxo

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


happy father´s day

11 November 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today I celebrate my father, my rock! He is one of those fathers that are all about family and spreading love and joy constantly <3 That might not be so frequent nowadays with a family father that combines hard work and career with daily quality time with his children? As I grew up my father went from being a DJ to working with cars (exclusive cars and old muscle cars). I do think music and cars has always been his passions in life. Therefor we have always had a DJbooth at home and a variety of old and new cars due to season :) He has also always been a bit of a rascal. Going against the flow and being a bit naughty, hehe! I have soo many stories about him to just tell a few:

 

- He taught me how to drive at age 4. I was sitting in his lap drivning a muscle car where our county house is. At this time I do think it was the Plymouth RoadRunner 69´ 440 sixpack or the Dodge Charger 68´with a 426 Hemi. I was a genious from childhood recognizing cars, well taught by my father as we always went to muscle cars meetings all over Sweden.

-As I was little I was all into tennis. Everyday after dads work, often late evening/night we went out in the neighboorhood playing tennis at the schoolyard. We also bought special french cheeses from a local posh cheese store at Sibyllegatan and hided those bits at the schoolyard to the rats:) At least until the local newspaper (Östermalmsnytt) wrote about at a ratinvasion at the schoolyard.

-As I started to be interested in horses and got my first own horse on my 12th birthday, daddy walk the horse and cuddle it and took care of it everyday after work. Even though he was so scared and my little shagaya arab was a wild creature in every sense. All for his daughter.

-As me and my friends started going to a teenager disco, my father was always there for security. He took a limousine or hummer from work and collected all my friends from all over town and left us off at Elverket. He waited outside those few hours until the disco closed. After, he drove all the children to make sure they made it home safely after midnight. 

- I also remember that our family always had a sense of "everybody is welcome". For instance I remember a Halloween party when I was about 7 years old. As my family is well connected, we got to use the English Embassey in Stockholm for that party. We invited ALL the kids around my age from school, and I am talking about 60 kids!! All these kids arrived at the Embassey while the parents was refuses to enter due to diplomatic and security rules and left the kids at the gates. This is one thing with my family, always welcoming and generous. 

 

 

Well well, a walk down memory lane from a wonderful upbringing in the best of familys. I could not ask for more as I always had uncondintional love. I am that kind of person that always tend to go all-in with my interests in life and I have always been supported by my family. Now I am off for a dinner at my grandparents. Today is "Happy father´s day" so we have to celebrate my wonderful grandpa too.  I do expect a traditionl Swiss Fondue for dinner tonight! Laters beeps! xoxo

 

 

 

 

 

 


without you

20 October 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

20th of October 2018: Today, 6 months since you left this world behind! And 3 years since he/them broke our lingering hands and forced us apart! I still grieve daily although I know you are in a better place now! I escaped Stockholm and tried to run away from tears to get my mojo back in life, I am on my way now although I will never forget you and us. I will never forget our hopes for a future together and acknowledging a soul mate. I promise to continue beliving that we have "The Fountain" as reassurance! In loving memory xoxo

louis vuitton - philip corne

19 October 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You must know about now that I am a bit of a geek when it comes to learing about the luxury global fashion industry :) Both from a fashion science and ethografical perspective, I just suck up"lesson about luxury fashion" preferable from relevant forums or traditional news. 

Recently, at B&T Breakfast Club, Louis Vuitton Australia’s non-executive director Philip Corne, who’s also the non-executive chairman of Cure Cancer Australia held his speech: ‘Retail marketing, how it’s changing and what you can do to stay ahead of the curve’. That man truly confirm many of my personal analysis of the luxury market, both from my academic studies of it and from all my years of working within luxury fashion retail. Therefor, in no particular order I choose to show you some sentences that are spot-on right and gives me a reassurrance that I am not alone with some of my thoughts about luxury fashion:

 

"At LVMH and in particular Louis Vuitton – you have a chairman, major shareholder, and company that is never satisfied – if 3 words are spoken – innovation and creativity are 2 of them – the drive for growth is relentless.

The consumer today – unlike the past – has the power of information at their finger-tips. The world can be shopped from anywhere any time.

In my mind however – what has always been true remains the true. It starts with your product – is it genuine – does it have a clear point of difference – does it have a market – can it be priced effectively into that market – are margins sufficient to produce an appropriate return – is the business scalable – the need to embrace relentless attention to detail and who is your competition both existing and potential?

An added complexity is that having the best product is not enough. Assuming all the boxes above can be ticked then the questions remain:

What is the brand story and how to tell it?
Is it genuine?
Can it stand the test of time?
How to communicate to your current and potential client?
When has this ever been different?

The mode of delivery may have changed but the objective and message remain the same.

I hear much about luxury – an easily used word – apparently now you can purchase luxury toilet paper – computers etc. I hear that personalisation is luxury, surprise and delight is luxury, client experience is luxury, scarcity is luxury – maybe.

In my view the currency of luxury today is trust – trust in product, providence, sustainability, retail environment and trust in the fact that relationship takes precedence over transaction – understanding that if the relationship is established the transaction will follow and trust must be consistently maintained over time.

In terms of marketing therefore regardless of the method of delivery the brands that in my view will win are those that understand these basics and have at the centre of all they do an obsession with having the client as the reason for their existence.".

 

 

Take a moment and think about this sentences and what they tell about the time we live in and what effect contemorary living has on the luxury fashion market. Earlier on at this blog I have posted many clips and texts about LVMH and Louis Vuitton (check out by my searchfunction above). Feels legit for me as I have been in perfect company during these 2 last years. / xoxo

 

 


lvmh - luxury fashion market - china

10 October 2018

 

'

 

 

 

 

 

During my Fashion Science education at Stockholm University I was thrilled to learn not just about fashion in terms of fashionhistory, fashionmedia, luxury fashion, creating image and branding or dresshistory, but sooo many courses was also about the global fashionmarket, economy within the fashionindustry and also about the aspects of nationality in fashion both contempory and historically. To add up to this,  all those courses of ethnology keeps me on my toes especially in areas of customer behaviour within the luxury fashionindustry of today.

Of course I try, even though my BA was taken almost 2 years ago,  to keep up with the constant changes at the global fashion market. Of course, I do try to keep you, my faithful readers, updated as well :)

I have read a lot of articles on-line these last few days about the reason for the recent fall of luxury fashion stocks. As I am still all into LVMH and Louis Vuitton ofc, this is my first priority . Apparently this drop is a result of how Chinese customs authorities are stepping up border checks on returning travelers, confirming speculation on social-media networks and deepening a selloff in luxury companies’ shares. LVMH Chief Fiancial Officer Jean-Jacques Guiony said: “The Chinese authorities have some laws that are being enforced with some more strength at times, which is what we’re seeing now”. Last weeks social media reports has reported that China is stepping up border checks in an effort to curb the flow of unauthorized imports of luxury fashiongood as from luxury fashionhouses as Louis Vuitton, Gucci and so on.(Apparently the Chinese market of this luxury fashion is about a third of the industry´s sales and a majority of its growth. I do seems akward that LVMH shares should drop, as for example the last quarterly report is increasing accordingly with analyst forecasts. Although the market is the market and national political decisions always affects shares somehow, shortterm at least)

You might not have knowledge about the word "Daigou Market"? Well, it is a parallell market or some even call it the gray market of imports. For example Chinese residents buy Louis Vuitton luxury products overseas, where prices are lower, then sell these goods with profit on their retur back home to China. This affects the nation fashion companies stores. LVMHs Guiony said about this that it "is not something that we welcome or that we try to promote.". He also add that there are company limits of number of items that customers can buy at the stores, as I know myself for a fact working at Louis Vuitton in Stockholm for such a long time. Guiny also stated that: Despite the risk of unauthorized arbitrage in LVMH’s goods, the company has no plans to equalize prices in China and abroad.

 

This is all about the subject for now!

 

Btw, are you interested in similiar articles about the luxury fashion market there is some long articles and even clips from fashion forums at this website (just search with key words) One of my favourite clip is from a forum held Oxford, starring the head of LVMH Bernard Arnault, and I choose to enclose it below once again. xoxo

crown princess victoria - fashion

07 October 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I still, ever since the start of my work with the thesis about Crown Princess Victoria and fashion, follow her every fashionable movement :) As I now live in Dubai I was curious if she had ever been here? Well, it seems she has been here on several occations, both in private and as official (pic from 2011).

I wonder how she will dress the next time she visit the Middle-East, as she will visit Amman and Beirut in a couple of weeks? Will she have a different approach to fashion, as she have changed her choices enourmosly since my thesis. I do think this change was a result of my work closely with the Royal Court and at the Royal Castle during fall/winter 2016-2017.  I made many fashion suggestions in order to make her choices in fashion improve her branding and marketing as a CrownPrincess, a member of the Swedish Royal family and representing Sweden and Swedish companies. If you wanna read more, you may seek at this site. One post, as an example, you may read thru link here! xoxo

gucci - alessandro michele - ss 2019

25 September 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once again, this feeling I get from discocering fashion designed and presented by Alessandro Michele for GUCCI, a feeling of recognition. A similar feeling as in Marcel Proust's "In Search of Lost Time" when the Madeleine cake, after being dipped in the lindenflower tea and brought to the mouth, gives overwhelming rise of memories from history! I feel so much more for fashion when the factor of historical recognition has a major part in the innovation of fashion!  This visionary way of looking at fashion that reflect on todays society, is based upon history and provides hope for a more innovative and promising future. In the new collection presented yesterday for GUCCI, I fall into the future while living the 70s-80s in a Parisian bar surrounded by the most inspiring creative people possible. Having a blast!

In one of the worlds most famous essays ”The Dandy”, Baudelaire sanctifies the dandy as the last hero of modern life a man who tries valiantly to preserve an aristocratic rule of conformity in the face om rampand cosumerism. I feel that Alessandro Michele thru GUCCI and thru the historical aristocratical produce something that we recognize, but can not find out exactly what. I have learned so much about fashionhistory and philosophers opinion about fashion. Purdy writes for example that Simmels brilliance lies in his ability to elucidate this tension between social pressure and personal freedom at every moment in the fashion cycle. Simmel expressed that the whole history of society is reflected in the striking conflicts, the compromises, slowly won and quickly lost, between socialistic adaptation to society and individual departure from its demands. Alessandro Micheles has, in this respect, a magic way of expressing personal freedom in todays fashion. Alessandro shows individuality in a most expressive form and yet it get socially wide accepted. With this collection the designer for GUCCI proves again his vurm and knowledge for history, litteratur, religion and art. He puts in his knowledge and creative mind in a bowl and then his magic fingers picks up the elements in an choosen specific order, that only he can master, and everything falls in the right place.  With this collection I am feeling a blast from Paris. A blast from the 70s and 80s of French glamour. Alessandro, is one of very few creative designers of today, that keeps being legit with every new collection in an innovative way. He is like an idol to me an I am proud to call me a hysteric fan.

Here I present a few of my choice of top female looks from his latest collection for GUCCI ss2019. Amaxing amazing! xoxo

I was baffled when seeing on www.gucci.com the inspirational pictures choosen to be a glimpse of what to come with the presentation of GUCCI ss2019 by master Alessandro Michele in Paris. These pictures are not just providing an air of the atmosphere in Paris at that moment in time or its nightlife. The first picture have a very special person featured – Roland Barthes.

Why did this get me going? Well, I wrote many years ago on this website, during the period Ignasi Monreal did a GUCCI campaign, how I felt a need to use an academic approach based upon Roland Barthes theories to make an interpretation of the fashion images/paintings in that campaign.

Nowadays I tend to be a bit of a nerd in the way I make my analysis from my academical perspecive, ethnology and of course: Art and fashion science. This proves how much my studies at Stockholm University and my vurm for art and especially fashion portraits really has changed my own approach when looking at fashion images or paintings. When I analyze GUCCI looks, campaigns and so forth, it takes infinitely longer for me now than it would have take before my academic studies. This is master Alessandro Micheles fault as he challenge me with his vurm for history, art and beauty – therefor creates looks that are complete further then meets the eye – it tingles the brain and warms the heart.

I tend to use a method founded by this theorist Roland Barthes as a way to systematically analyze images. Barthes' theory lays upon his notions about two orders of designation. He calls these orders: denotation and connotation. In the second scheme, connotation, also includes myths and symbols. A myth in Barthes' sense is a story which within a culture explains or perceive any aspect of reality or nature. Barthes argues that a myth is culture's way of thinking about something; a way of explain something. The myth is denoted the importance of the second order, and the myths is the human need to put labels on things to understand them. The third way for the designation of the second degree Barthes calls for symbols. A sign becomes a symbol in the convention and use obtained a significance that makes it stand for something else.

Theorist Hall explained that Barthes denotation is the simple, basic, descriptive level, where consensus is wide and most people would agree on the meaning. On the second level - connotation - are these signals / signs that we have been able to "decode" in a simple way by using our conventional conceptual classifications to read their meaning, giving a broader perspective through other types of codes - "fashion language" - which connects them to broader themes and meanings. These bind them with what we can call the wider semantic field in our culture: ideas about the "elegance", "formality", "simplicity" and "romance". The second order then, as in a wider meaning is no longer a descriptive level of obvious interpretation. Here we begin to interpret the completed signs in terms of social ideology - the general beliefs, conceptual frameworks and values ​​in society.

Now, it is just up to me to look at each look from the new GUCCI collection and try to understand what story magician Alessandro Michele wants to share with his choice of designs and styling. In addition to this I must ofc take in the ”room” or rather the theater where the looks are presented and the movement inside it and what music that will function as a guidline to interpretation. Soon, very soon it is showtime! xoxo

So, this was my last update from Milan FashionWeek season ss2019. As usual: My choice of best looks from my choice of best collections :)

Well hello, you might wonder what the heck happened to GUCCI??? Legit question indeed!! If you are as much into admiring creative genious Alessandro Michele for GUCCI do not miss out on his new collecion that relases tonight 7.30 in Paris. In Paris, you might ask yourself then? Gucci is decamping from Milan for one season and will instead show the ss2019 collection in Paris the French capital. The show marks the crescendo of a three-part homage to France conceived by the Italian brand’s creative director, Alessandro Michele.

“Gucci is a global brand with deep and vibrant Italian roots and a visionary French shareholder, Kering,” said Marco Bizzarri, president and chief executive officer of Gucci. “When Alessandro told me of his desire to present the new collection in Paris— continuing the French-inspired narrative — I thought it was a perfect way to continue the creative homage to France.”

So, even though Milan FashionWeek is over do not dispear: GUCCI is on tonight, although from Paris!!! <3

Thursday - abu dhabi

21 September 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thursday was spent in Abu Dhabi. We visited the wonderful Grand Mosque and what a magic place :) After the Grand Mosque we had planned to go fourwheel driving in the desert during sunset, but lost our way. So, desertdriving and helicopter adventures are planned for Sunday instead.

It is the absolute truth how some enviroments really gives you the right energy and boost your soul, body and mind. Walking in the Grand Mosque of Abu Dhabi was empowering. I felt a deep thankfulness of the life I am blessed to live.

As I think about yesterdays adventures I must say that I love it here in UAE. I also love the fact that my three best friends will visit me here, as I am about to stay here for a long while. I do not miss home at all expect for my family, my closest friends and my work and collegues at Louis Vuitton <3

I have some friends from Sweden that will visit me while I am living in Dubai. Tomorrow the first one arrives and will be here Thursday-Sunday. We have already booked to visit mosques and go fourwheel driving in the desert at night! So these up-coming days with all about discovering the culture and beauty of UAE!

when the sun goes down

When the sun goes down my thoughts goes to rememberence! Today would be your birthday, if you were still on earth. Sweet music man: You where a beautiful soul with a kind heart and a genious in so many ways. If you are in a place called heaven I take comfort in that people say that: God take the ones he love the most, early in their lifes! Or maybe you will live for eternity like in your favourite movie"The Fountain"? 

All I know for certain is that I will remember you forever and cherish the time we spent together. Watching the sun sets and the sun rises over the rooftops while holding hands and promise to never let go. 

The great Lord Byron wrote a poem of heartbreak and some of the phrases describe my feelings at this moment as I look back in time:

"When we two parted In silence and tears, Half broken-hearted To sever for years,

Pale grew thy cheek and cold, Colder thy kiss; Truly that hour foretold Sorrow to this.

The dew of the morning Sunk chill on my brow-- It felt like the warning Of what I feel now...."

"They know not I knew thee, Who knew thee too well-- Long, long shall I rue thee, Too deeply to tell.

In secret we met-- In silence I grieve..."

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

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
