PARIS. As I mentioned in my previous post, I did a second trip to Paris from tuesday to wednesday to attend the Louis Vuitton S/S 13 show. Although we may look relaxed in these pictures I can tell you that was totally not the case. On our way to the show, me and Andy got stuck in traffic and ended up having to run the last 200 meters (in high heels) to the sound of the guards outside the show space counting down the minutes until the show started. We arrived at 09.59 and as soon as we found our seats, the lights went down and the show started. Talk about last minute!!

The show itself was a magical ode to the 60’s featuring cute mod girls in couples of two, cascading down four massive escalators onto the checkered runway. The models sported cute beehives, pea coats, maxi skirts, mini dresses, crop tops and short jackets, all covered in graphic squares in white and sunshine yellow –  a fresh contrast to last years romanticly themed runway show.

Huge thanks to LV for inviting me, and to my running partner Andy for not leaving me behind when my left shoe almost fell off during our sprint to the show. Never ever thought we would make it on time but somehow we did and I could not have picked a better team mate! ;)

DAGMAR. Started my morning with Dagmar’s ss 13 show and loved every second of it. The collection, which was inspired by bio-architecture, is all about dynamic contradictions; high tech meets tradition, delicate vs rough, neon brights/sand tones. On top of my wishlist are the chunky knitted jumpers, the amazing leather pieces (!!) and that stunning gray coat with zippers in the front. Seriously can’t wait for this collection to hit the stores next year!

NYC. As I mentioned the other day I still have so many pictures left to post from NY! Wore this outfit to the IFB conferance on feb 8th and finally got to use my beloved leather jacket that has been hiding in my closet all winter, (usually a pretty good sign that spring has arrived, even though I had to layer a vest on top of it to keep the cold out). But still, being able to wear a leather jacket in february is rare for a swedish gal so I’m not complaining ;)
Stay tuned for more nyfw pictures later this week! xx
