Finally Spring...

Joie De Vie







Searching for ideas summer 2005
I came up with this...
I called it my "Joie De Vie"
I love the blinding effect of pastel collors on some people...
How they hate it, how they can't look at it...
as if they were hiding their past trying at any price
to avoide their childhood dreams
I don't understand this fear...
I find their reaction comic really...
My childhood is so precious to me
and these colors brings me back to the smells
the tastes the fantasy world that I used to hide in...
I miss it badly...
what a shame to be a fashion designer at 30 and not at 3...
it would have for sure been much more intresting...
I would have for sure taken myself less seriously...
My next collection is the oposite of this in color
since I'm feeling blue
and not at all in the clouds like the last one...
but I always keep
a litle something from my fantasy world...
can't wait to share it with you...
Creating is really my Joie De Vivre

The Charming Tord Boontje ...






In Love with the new 
Tord Boontje  'charming'  collection 
that he created for Artecnica,  
nature inspiered jewelry representing 
creatures and flowers.
the collection is in 18k gold and silver plated metal. 
This is what I would have wanted for my birthday...
I am absolutly hypnotised by everything labeled
Boontje... And I have a couple of Boontje Lamps 
and paper cuts at home...
But this is a personal favorite...
I WANT IT NOW...

Day of Light...


Sometimes we forget that there are other prioraties in life,
that things aren't always beautiful, 
for some of us 
they are hardly ever beautiful...
I found this litle short movie on Vimeo...
I know that my blog is about fashion and 
my personal inspiration etc...
but
I'm touched by people like that... 
They go to places that most of us want to pretend 
that they don't see
or they don't even want to admit that 
they exist...
and they bring joy and beauty to those who are less
fortunate then themselves...
it's a couragous act, it's an unselfish act...
the contradiction in my heart working with fashion for 
the love of the art
and on the other hand dealing with 
the superficial and materialistik
world of fashion and all it's bling
makes me feel useless sometimes...
this movie is definitly one of those moments...
To learn more about Love Light & Melody
To learn more about Day of Light movie.

Wake up, Ding Dong...
I really like his colorful happy world...
on his My Space you can read this :
"Just a Cake in a wold full of rotten cake"
I like that...

Dear Swedish Fashion Stylists...






Still waiting to see one of you dare borrow this look for an amazing styling...
How hard can it be to get inspired by this???
If I was a swedish stylist in Stockholm I would kill
to get hold of this trensh...
Why are you guys so afraid of using the extraordinary???
How can swedish fashion become an important part
of the fashion map if you guys are afraid
of using strong looks...
Do you first have to see it in international magazines???
Be more daring, all of you keep on complaning on the fact
that there aren't many daring fashion designers in Stockholm
and when you have some doing their job and giving you
luxury you are afraid of doing your own job and using it...
It is indeed easy to use simple pieces and make it look good...
this is a challenge...
so I'm challenging you, do your job so I can continue making mine...
and please stop complaning on Swedish design
there's nothing wrong with it...
You're just not serving it that's all...
For those of you daring to use those hard pieces...
RESPECT.

Time flys by....



Detail from a collection I made at school in 2003
Using time as a decorating detail... It's an obsession of mine...

I was just thinking how time flys by...
How we keep running to get to a target that
keeps getting closer yet further away from our power
Time is sometimes a friend of mine, some times my most
hated enemy...
I guess everything is relative.
I guess it's not really the watches fault...
I think in time I'll get to the point...
Until then I'll keep running late wishing
to be avant guarde and try tobeat the time with a smile...
In time I'll take time out of time and suspend
the moments in my own private garden.

Madonna for Vuitton...






The Vuitton Campaign with Madonna,
what's not to love about it...
Steven Meisel a Brasserie in Paris...
Beautiful shoes and bags...
Marc Jacobs is God...
It has been out there for a while but I just couldn't 
keep away from it, I had to add it in my blog.
:) I love it...
Enjoy the making of
