Yes, white socks and mockasins are back. I was cold this evening, so I wore wollen socks which also works! Oh - I love my mockasins/pumps from Acne!

Today I stopped by the Acne Showroom. I was there some weeks ago and really LOVED what I saw. First of all, the interior and the showroom itself is beautiful - kind of intellectual scandi-chic. With bookshelfs, small sculptures, white walls, wooden interior. Only almost minimalistic - just so much cooler! But of course, it was not the interior that made me want to come back. The spring/summer collection for 2010 is fantastic. It's a collection where safari and african animal prints and colours are mixed together with the minimalistic cuts and the Scandinavian coolness of the brand. Oh yes - it works as hell. My favourite pieces from the collection are in the pictures below. I can not face next summer without the yellow pants (I like to call them circus pants) and the beautiful cardigans. I'm a guy who loves his heels and the black pair is to die for! I also took some pictures of what you ladies can expect. Yes, the shoes are fantastic, but isn't a trench with leather back flap and belt just genius? And the frilly jacket!! Oh man...

Lanvin's collecton for spring/summer 2010 has a very mixed expression to it. Dressed up business men meets English school boy meets the sporty and the rough. And even though it may seem strange - it works. What made of Alber Elbaz and Lucas Ossendrijver would not work is something I would rather ask! Well, the collaboration of the two for this collecion actually makes socks wore in sandals seem ok and heavy winter boots to shorts like something natural. But instead of looking at the complete looks I would rather watch every piece of garment separately. I love love the fantasic coats, espeacially the one in emarald. The shorts and trousers are also unique using shiny garments giving them almost an underwear kind of look. The patterns are fantastic (pic. 2, 4 & 8). And who would not like a business jumpsuit (pic. 7)??

I was invited to the opening of the new By Malene Birger Store in Oslo. The event was arranged by Spalt PR. It really really was a nice start to a Friday night - loads of champagne and sweets including macrones from Pascal - Yum! The store is beautiful, and the content even more beautiful. I have to say that I for every season like Malene Birger's collections more and more. I love loved the hats, that unfortunately only where used for decorating the store. I have taken some pictures of some of the lovely people that were there and from the shop.
I wore sweater and belt from Balenciaga, badges from Marni (blue) and Miu Miu (orange), necklace from By Malene Birger and my father's old trousers.

Spalt PR's Pressday today was a great event. First of all it is always nice to be at Spalt PR's office because of the lovely girls working there. The pressday includes champagne, lovely finger food and cool people to hang out with. And of course - the most important - next seasons collection. And the collections that I find most interesting is by the Norwegian designers. I have taken some pictures of some of my favourite things. I used my camera phone, so some of the pictures are a bit groggy.
These two pieces by Vatle are fantastic! The body with the massive studded shoulders has an almost military feel. I would love to see it in my ballet class!
Every season G-Oslo delivers fantastic collections. I want want want the buttoned vest. The jumpsuit is perhaps the the it-piece in the collection!
I spoke to Cecilie Melli who has designed a collection and she said the collection is inspired by a trip she did to Miami. The collection has a much more fun and "upbeat" feel to it. Of course still the cute outfits, but she had edged them all up a bit. My lovely friend Anja Stang showed one of her favourites - a powder pink dress with pearl details.
